I had the chance to interview legendary golf designer Pete Dye yesterday at Casa de Campo. I’ll post the interview in coming days — we covered topics like modern golf design, tweaking his courses, the upcoming PGA Championship at Kiawah and a number of other points in a chat that last more than a half hour. Pete, for those of you who don’t know, is the designer behind the TPC at Sawgrass, Teeth of the Dog, and dozens of others. He was very generous with his time since he was in the Dominican to play in a big tournament with Whistling Straits owner Herb Kohler. I’ve interviewed him before, but this was the first time I’d met him.
