For those wondering why more players do not scout out courses like Tiger and Phil have, this quote from Medinah head pro Mike Scully in Len Ziehm's story on Medinah might surprise:
'Since the Western, about half the field has been here,'' Scully said. ''Tiger took his [first] peek early. Phil [Mickelson] put in his extensive time, and Luke Donald played a bunch. There were three that I was surprised weren't here before championship week. We never saw Ernie [Els], we never saw Retief [Goosen] and we never saw Sergio [Garcia].''
