SAN FRANCISCO, California -- After playing with good friend Hunter Hamrick during Monday's practice round, I decided to switch things up a bit and play with Peter Hanson on Tuesday. But when I showed up for my round I was actually paired with Kevin Streelman.
While I'm sure I would've had a great time playing with Peter, Kevin was an absolute blast to hang out with for the afternoon. He had a lot of great advice for me and answered any question I had. I think that's one of the things people don't realize out here. Even though we're all trying to beat each other and win, most of these guys are more than willing to answer questions and give you advice.
Instead of playing 18 holes again on Tuesday, I decided to just play the back nine (it's actually 10 holes since you tee off on the ninth) and get a better feel for the finishing stretch at Olympic Club. It's still a learning experience for me since this is only my second round at the course, but I'm learning quickly that you don't want to be in this rough.
