Fish tales and long drives


FARMINGDALE, N.Y. – Separating fact from fiction when it comes to long drivers on Tour is as tough as Bethpage's primary rough. But we received the ultimate fish tale Friday afternoon.

A long-time observer following the group of J.B. Holmes and Alvaro Quiros gushed as the group made the turn: 'That Quiros is crazy long. He was 30 yards past J.B. On one hole.'

Of course the longest drive of the year is the commute from the Black Course to the media hotel.
