With a tip of the golf cap (or visor) to Golf Digest's The Loop for the idea, I thought it would be fun to have a few late afternoon links to stories I read on the web today. A nice ending to your work day.

Here is rendition No. 1.

Phil Mickelson is craving the nasty stuff at the Scottish Open: "Tomorrow is supposed to be terrible weather - I hope it is." (European Tour)

Brandt Snedeker hires Butch Harmon as his coach: "I feel like I've been with one of the top two or three teachers in the world the last eight years and now I feel I am transitioning to one of the top teachers of all time." (Golf Channel)

Phil Mickelson on links golf: "I think it took me a while to really appreciate the greatness of it." (BBC)

Stacy Lewis telling us what we all already knew: "Obviously, we have the golf as the common bond, but, yeah, Michelle is the artsy kind of goofy person, and I'm definitely not that." (Golf Channel)

Rickie Fowler on the Scottish Open: "I like the imagination you get to use when deciding what shots to make. It's a different style of golf than I'm used to but I think I'll definitely fit in here." (European Tour)

Comparing Jordan Spieth at age 20 to the legends of golf. (PGA Tour)

Mike Wahn going guns up here on golf media: "I haven't seen the obituaries of 'whatever happened to Michelle Wie' in about a full year now. Everybody has seen her turn around in 2014, and I think winning the U.S. Women's Open was final validation that she is now ready to win a lot." (New York Times)
