Eddie Pearce was going to the "Next Nicklaus"....until he wasn't.

 

As much as I love quick nuggets of info (I'm totally addicted to Twitter), I am an even bigger fan of long-form journalism. A great golf story, made even more compelling by a great golf story teller, is one of the true pleasures for the golf mind.
 
One of the best reads I've had in awhile was this stellar piece by Jason Sobel of The Golf Channel. It's a profile of Eddie Pearce, the best golfer you've probably never heard of - and that's a shame. A fast lifestyle cut short a career that could have been one for the ages. How does Pearce feel about it?
