What a great finish to a great tournament in Memphis! Congratulations to Dustin Johnson, what a way to comeback from his injury. His ball-striking and touch around the greens showed that he is not only fully recovered, but has to be among the favorites for next week's U.S. Open.

A Lesson Learned: Generating Power
Scott Piercy won the RBC Canadian Open, in large part because of his four-birdie run early in the final round. And that run was punctuated when he drove the green on the 300 yard par 4 fifth hole. Wouldn't it be great if you had that shot in your bag?

A lot will be made of the extraordinary birdie putts Adam Scott holed, first at 18 and then at 10 in the playoff, to win the Masters. But Scottie wouldn’t have been in that position if he hadn’t driven the ball with such deft precision all week.

A Lesson Learned: Finish the race with what put you on top
You have to feel for Robert Garrigus. To be so close, to have that first PGA Tour win so firm in your grasp as you stand on the 18th tee of the final round and not walk away with the trophy, he'll be thinking about the events of that hole for a long time to come, I'm sure.

Commit To Your Shot!
Quite often, when we hit a great golf shot we usually have a feeling that we are going to hit the ball well. It's a wonderful feeling of confidence and composure. Then there are those times when you talk yourself into hitting a ball poorly or missing an easy putt.
