Visit the Big Apple: Five tips from the Tour pros
With the PGA Tour making a stop this weekend in Paramus, N.J., golfers have been dropping clues all over social media on the proper way to visit New York. We've scoured all the sites and have come up with five steps on how to visit the Big Apple like a PGA Tour professional.
Step 1: Grab a bite to eat
New York is home to some of the best restaurants in the world. The Big Apple has you covered no matter what type of food you want, and at virtually any hour of the day. If you're like Russell Knox, you go for what may be the biggest slice of pizza in history.

Step 2: Go see the sights
There are plenty of marquee landmarks in New York. Everything -- from Coney Island in Brooklyn to Central Park in Manhattan -- is just a subway ride away. If you're like Rickie Fowler, you'll stop at the Empire State Building and get a great view of the city.
Step 3: Go for a run
After eating such a large meal earlier in the day, you may worry about gaining a few pounds -- especially if you want to play your best on the course. But fear not, there are plenty of parks in New York where you can work off those extra calories. Best part, you never know if Rory McIlroy will join you for your jaunt.

Step 4: Go to a professional sporting event
There are multiple nightime options when visiting New York, but one of the more popular ones is to catch a game. The New York sports scene has you covered every time of the year, though going to see the Jets or Giants play does require a quick trip into New Jersey. Even if you're not a fan of the team or sport you're at, it's still a great experience.
Step 5: Guest star on a late night talk show
This one is reserved for all you big stars. New York is home to a number of late-night talk show hosts. One of the more popular options recently has been the "Tonight Show" with Jimmy Fallon.
Complete these five steps and you'll have visited New York like a true PGA Tour professional.
Of course, this list is assuming you have some free time and don't have to get up early for a round of golf. If you find yourself in that case, Ian Poulter has one suggestion for you.
