5 gems overheard at Pinehurst

By Keely Levins

PINEHURST, N.C. -- For all of you golf fans who don't have the opportunity to be walking around Pinehurst this week, I went out and wrote down a few quotes that I heard to help you feel like you're here. As a point of reference, I did so while drinking sweet tea, which is a magical nectar I plan on bringing gallons of back with me to the north.
