Matt Kuchar wins again amid swirling rumors he gypped a local caddie. We weigh in on all that, discuss Hosung Choi making his TOUR debut at Pebble next month, then are joined by renowned course architect David McLay-Kidd (49:04). DMK tells the stories behind building the original Bandon Dunes course as an inexperienced 27-year-old in the 1990s; then discusses the challenges behind designing the Castle Course at St. Andrews; he tells of the sentimentality behind building Machrihanish Dunes; he reveals his thoughts on Augusta National today; he shows his feelings towards rival architect Tom Doak. Truly, DMK is a fascinating guy who loves golf and has evolved dramatically as a course architect over the past two decades, recently building the highly-praised masterpiece that is Mammoth Dunes.
