Golf Digest Deputy Editor. Professional amateur on good days, amateur professional on bad.

Think Young, Play Hard : Golf Digest — We grew up in a nice neighborhood. My family belongs to Guadalajara Country Club, which had golf, tennis, horses, swimming, soccer, everything. I had a tight group of friends and we'd go seven days a week. I saw her rise to No. 1 from both sides, winning on TV and working out at our club at 6 a.m.

'We Double Dog Dare You' — So you have a dog. You know you're a real bastard each time you leave for a four-hour round after a 10-minute walk (or even no walk), but hey, that's golf. With most starters you'd have better luck wearing Borat's bathing suit and playing out of your friend's bag than getting permission to bring your pooch along.

Undercover Tour Pro — Fans might be surprised how businesslike the vibe is on the PGA Tour. Guys with families rent homes and leave the course like it's the office. A lot of single guys go to dinner almost exclusively with their coach, caddie or agent. Each player is like the CEO of his small company.

Swag On Tour : Golf Digest — There was all the free stuff back when I was playing mini-tours? This portable speaker would've made a nice replacement for the blown ones in my old Nissan, but now I fly first-class to tournaments, sometimes private. Often I'm not home for three- and four-week stretches, and so the boxes pile up: iTunes gift cards, iPads, picture frames, random electronics.

The Loop : Golf Digest — Yesterday I received the honor of appearing on Fox Business News' Varney&Co, where I was interviewed by Stuart Varney for two minutes and 36 seconds. Despite the comfy black car the studio sent, I was flustered for several reasons. First was waiting outside the wrong entrance in the noon sun -- my fault.

The Undercover Tour Pro — It's no secret that PGA Tour caddies have tenuous job security. These guys get canned all the time. For talking too much to not talking enough, for picking a wrong club to being too fidgety, to just plain because. I know players who like to change caddies every three months just to stay fresh.

Who says athletes at the top of their field can't write?

Agree to disagree MT @JIMF25: @MaxAdlerGD probably the most ridiculous thing to ever appear in @GolfDigest .

Tiger/Jenkins drama has overshadowed our other controversial Dec article. Why courses must allow dogs. #smallbattle

@BigEinBigD They'd read it, but not take it so seriously. Print is the flint; digital spreads the flame.

Tiger/Jenkins saga illustrates different value of print vs. digital. Had it been a web-only piece, Tiger wouldn't have responded. No story.

@LukeKerrDineen confirm co-sponsored buddy isn't wearing exact same clothes?
