Former NBC analyst reflects on his career. Q: Have you become softer and less critical when you watch the PGA Tour now that you’re no longer in the broadcast booth?

M: I don’t know if the word is critical. I see things that the other guys don’t see. When I see those things, I want to share them with the public. If it’s a crappy shot, it’s a crappy shot, it’s nothing personal. If I say it is a great shot, I want people to think, dang, Johnny, thought that was a great shot.

U.S. Open: Welcome to Winged Foot. Gil Hanse’s hole-by-hole tour. Seven years ago, Winged Foot hired Gil Hanse to adapt to the modern game the original 1923 stylings and strategies of A.W. Tillinghast’s West and East courses. Hanse is overly modest about his effort and that of his brilliant restoration team, which in this case included design partner Jim Wagner and Steve Rabideau, Winged Foot’s tireless director of golf courses.

“My biggest hope is that our work is an authentic response to what was already there,” Hanse says, nodding to Tillinghast’s justifiably revered creations. In fact, he insists that his name should barely be mentioned in descriptions of Winged Foot’s West Course, the venue for this year’s Open.

“It’s Tillinghast,” Hanse says. Full stop.

Bella Vista Golf Course. My stepson and his buddies, who have spent months sampling daily fee courses in the area, have settled on Bella Vista as their favorite.

They cite just what you would expect: It’s a good course, a close course, a fun course, it’s always in good shape, and the green fees are reasonable for a bunch of 25-somethings. In their minds it is their unofficial home course.

These kids were blank slates when this started. I would listen to the daily reviews of what was worth it and what was dropped from their list of courses.
