Cooler temperatures aren't the only thing golfers face during the winter months. Grass goes dormant in most locales, which means there's less material between the ball and ground. That results in a lot of tight lies, and if it's been a dry winter, hardpan as well.

What a great honor it was to welcome the golf world to TPC Sugarloaf -- where I've been privileged to serve as PGA Head Professional since 2011. It was the inaugural year for the Greater Gwinnett Championship and we couldn't be happier with how the week unfolded.

Those of you who were surprised by Tiger Woods' runaway win at Torrey Pines in his first start after missing the cut in Abu Dhabi haven’t been paying attention. The man is the master of the bounce-back.
