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)

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
