players, the PGA Champi- onship in August boasts a whopping 156 contestants and prides itself on having the strongest field of the year. This includes dozens of talented club pros, who get to rub cashmeres with the elite players for a week. Like the U.S. Open, they


also take good care of the media, offering a hotel, free shuttle buses and meals at the course. The PGA hosts a reception, dinner, and an- nually host a media dinner during Masters week, where they hand out a parting gift—usually an umbrella. For me, covering a


major championship compares to a week at the Super Bowl. It might look like a cushy job, the kind you would trade for any day, but in truth, the hours are long, conditions


challenging—especially in Europe—and you are often hard-pressed to find healthy food at 11 p.m. Still, most of us love


our work. The majority of writers take their jobs seriously, aren’t afraid to ask tough questions, and do their homework. Unfortunately, some take themselves a little too seriously. As a cub reporter, the best advice I ever received was never forget you aren’t the story. Words to live by in this profession.
