By JOE PASSOV, Golf Magazine Senior Editor Jim Nantz closed last week's broadcast by gushing about returning to Oak Hill, the Donald Ross masterpiece, but I'm not sure Ross would recognize the place. Undeniably, Oak Hill's East course, site of this week's PGA Championship, oozes classic design features, a stern challenge and an admirable tournament history. Cary Middlecoff never broke the par of 70 in winning the 1956 U.S. Open. When Jack Nicklaus won the PGA Championship here in 1980, he was the only player to finish at par or better. Even when Lee Trevino beat 70 in all four rounds in [...]

By JOE PASSOV I don't want to sound like a broken record, but the needle, turntable and amplifier don't lie: Bandon Dunes rocks.

The results are clear and convincing. Bandon Dunes is America's ultimate golf playground. Here are five things I've learned on the trip so far. 1. Punch Bowl is going to be a knockout. The gigantic putting green project, modeled after the Himalayas at St. Andrews is a sprawling, heaving carpet co-designed by [...]

Fairmont-No-8
In golf, and in life, it all comes down to decisions we make in tough situations. That's when we learn what we're made of. Those are the moments that change a round, and perhaps even a future. I faced one such golf-and-life conundrum when I stood on a tee box framed by mountains and watched an adult black bear slowly emerge from a thicket of wild flowers and plop down in the grass about 40 yards in front of me. It was a cloudy, cool Canadian summer afternoon, and there sat the bear, snacking on some daisies and other plants [...]

Jackson Hole Golf & Tennis Club offers views even more beautiful than the course itself. (Credit: Dick Durrance) Dear Joe: My family and I are heading to Wyoming in August. We'll have time for one round near Jackson Hole. Any thoughts? —Sam Dostaler, via e-mail Sam, it's a coin flip between the Robert Trent Jones Jr. layout at Jackson Hole Golf & Tennis Club ($65-$185; 307-733-3111, jhgtc.com) and the Arnold Palmer—designed Teton Pines ($65-$160; 307-733-1733, tetonpines.com). Both are fun, flat tests that are slashed by water hazards and boast views of the Tetons. They're pricey, but they do offer savings after 2 p.m. (up [...]
