Rich Beem holes improbable pitch shot, gets mobbed by fans, and enjoys every second of it

SPRINGFIELD, N.J. -- Despite rain that just won't go away, Rich Beem seems to be enjoying every minute of his week at Baltusrol. And why not? This is the first time in four years that Beem, who spends most of his time these days working as an analyst for Sky Sports, has played on the weekend at a major. The man had to PAY for the clubs he's using this week for crying out loud!

Imagine how fun this guy will be on the senior tour?
