    I think Jack got the milkshake recipe from Castle Rock because that's been the staple at the Memorial for years...
    Other must-taste Tour/major food:
    Fried chicken at the RSM Classic (Sea Island, Ga.) and the Masters.
    Of course the pimento cheese and egg salad at the Masters.
    Cookies at the Honda Classic
    Pizza and wine at the end of each day at Bay Hill.
    Smoothies at The Players (a recent addition to the list ... they finally found their niche item).
    Thread-jack at your leisure ... anyone else have any other favorite food at Tour stops?

    This is an excellent list. Smoothies at the Players is after my time, though.

    So the Web.com tour is now the Korn Ferry Tour - weird name aside, Korn Ferry is a headhunter/management consultancy firm that has been used by colleges to hire coaches without their current place of employment finding out. Are there THAT many ADs/hiring executives watching Triple-A golf?

    PGA should move the Tour final to Labor Day weekend with the first round Friday and finishing up Monday afternoon. They'd probably get pretty good attendance and outside of Darlington and two CFB games at night - the days are open so the ratings would be decent.

    I don't understand either but if the goal was name recognition, I'd say they've succeeded. But would also speculate that there will be yet another name for Triple-A golf once Korn Ferry's contract ends.

    That makes too much sense to work.

    The now-eliminated second playoff tournament was at TPC-Boston (actually 40 miles out of town) over Labor Day weekend on a Friday-Monday schedule. It was very popular.
