The Links: Rory McIlroy carries the burden of being No. 1
Being Phil Mickelson; Tiger Woods took a putting lesson; and a sweet hole-out from Doral.
Fantastic post here about what it takes mentally to stay No. 1:
Attaining No. 1 is mostly about talent and drive. McIlroy has the former in abundance and -- despite a proclivity for streakiness -- enough of the latter. But what separates those who make a quick stop at the pinnacle and those who stay longer is the unremitting focus it takes to keep beating everyone. (GolfDigest)
According to Phil Mickelson, No. 14 at Augusta might see more hole-outs. (Golf Channel)

This is why I love Phil:
Phil, DJ and Keegan just finished practice round at Doral. Just saw Phil walk over and discreetly slide some dinero into DJ's pocket.— Jay Coffin (@JayCoffinGC) March 6, 2013
Craig Parry's crazy signature shot from Doral.
