The Links: Playing golf with Phil Mickelson, Fred Couples
Scott Stallings had a baby, Tommy Armour's forgotten swing, and why the Blayne Barber story is so cool.

Hawk's Nest is a weekly read for me. Great stories about playing rounds with Fred Couples and Phil Mickelson. Here's what he had to say about Couples:
At the par-5 first, Couples hit driver-5-iron to 20 feet and made the putt, literally continuing the conversation while striking all three shots. He birdied the second with a turkey sandwich hanging out of his mouth, then the third and fourth, and at that point, I was just a wee bit impressed. You could see Couples getting a little bored with it all, however, as if the game had become too easy. I have no idea what he ended up shooting. I’m pretty certain he didn’t, either. (Golf Channel)
