@jenny_suh "Watching TSA test my entire golf bag & clubs for explosives...taking precautions is always great but good luck getting that bag closed!" โ€“ LPGA Tour player Jenny Suh

Lee Janzen
@LeeJanzen    Can someone give these guys (Lucas Glover and Jonathan Byrd) a glove. Not often you see gloveless players much less both in a playoff

Mike Fay, PGA
@mikefaygolf     I have found that using the bounce correctly can really improve your short game

@mikefaygolf    When you open the face more on your wedge, the more bounce you use.

@mikefaygolf    Question about 60 degree wedges: I think 60 degree wedges should be used in only a few situations: close to the green

Joe Leenheer, PGA
@JLeenheerPGA   #golfun tip: go get yourself a @nikegolf method putter and start making more putts like Lucas Glover! Hope mine does the same tomorrow!

@HankDHaney   Too small u hook, too large u tend to slice RT @stevejensen83: @HankDHaney what is the result of too big/small grips?
