Golf Digest’s Geoff Shackelford has revealed his list of the 10 Best Golf Course Designs in America, and Pinehurst No. 2 is on the list.

Geoff Writes:

Pinehurst No. 2, Pinehurst, N.C. / Donald Ross (1935) 7,565 yards, Par 72

The design Donald Ross took from infancy to completion in his retirement years fell into disrepair during decades when architectural demands emphasized fairness. But now reflecting a desire by more golfers to tackle a somewhat-mysterious landscape, Pinehurst No. 2 again presents a series of cunning design-induced questions while never overwhelming the sandhills landscape re-exposed by Ross mentees Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw. An inspiration to so many architects, everything about the Pinehurst No. 2 experience reflects the vision of its creators and shows that golf architecture does not need to be played by an ocean to elicit awe.

And so we give you one of the best tennis trick shots we’ve seen, done by Josh Horton at Louis Armstrong Stadium at the U.S. Open:

Why, Phil? Because, well, why not?

It’s Friday, and so we all need something fun to start the weekend.  With that in mind, here’s Phil Mickelson getting up and down from behind a, uh, fence of railroad ties at the BMW Championship yesterday:

Perhaps the best part is the broadcast crew wondering aloud why Phil didn’t at least inquire about a free drop because of the obvious man-made structure.

Uh, because he’s Phil.
