A sneak peek from filming with @NickFaldo006 last weekend. Lots of golf, laughter, and storytelling that we can’t wait to share with you. Here’s a glimpse at our Knight v. Knight bunker challenge – we’ll call it a tie… for now! I cannot wait for you to see what’s still to come.

Taking on the fantastic 19th hole at @BigCedarLodge. Johnny Morris has been so creative in his thinking and what a great way to finish a round. What’s your favorite closing hole?

Nothing I love more than working on my game. You can always get better. As always, Fantastic to pick that G.O.A.T’s brain. No better way to get better. Most importantly, we are still great friends. @jacknicklaus

Jack Nicklaus@jacknicklaus

.@garyplayer might be, pound for pound, the finest golfer in history. And closing in on 85, he’s still tough to beat! He plays 5 days a week, and as you can see, he’s still trying to learn and always trying to get better.

Less than 50 days until @TheMasters. I'm excited to see how the course looks and plays in November. It will be an honor to be part of this year’s event and when considering the field, there are several exciting players who could win. It’s going to be another great tournament.
