Two things, I always suspected that MY was not really the Jeff Foxworthy/Larry The Cable Guy of golf architecture, but a Renaissance Man keeping it down low. When he starts channeling Robert Frost in his "golf is not big business" shtick, that will be all the confirmation I need.
Second, as a 20 handicapper when it comes to music, I knew that "Thunder Road" and "Unanswered Prayers" were fantastic Garth Brooks songs. Never heard of MY's pal Pat Alger. It got me to thinking how many other significant collaborators on golf courses I really like are left unrecognized. Beau Welling, only because his association with Tiger and now getting out on his own, might be one of them.
