The par-4 10th at White Manor

Few people in the golf design business knew Pete Dye better than Bobby Weed, who first interned for his mentor in the 1970s. Weed comes into the Salon with Derek Duncan and Jim Urbina to share his thoughts on how Dye continues to influence him, the overriding consideration of drainage, being courted by Jack Nicklaus, the classicism of S-shaped holes, how shaping allows the right-brain to kick in, the liberating effect of designing on a flat site like The Grove XXIII, pushing back against the trend of naturalism, working in sand versus taking on big problem sites and the value of quirkiness.
