Every golfer knows it is sometimes most difficult to close out rounds when you are playing very well. The temptation to consider the possible scenarios over the remaining holes has golfers mentally filling out their scorecards before the final holes are even played.

Also, Bob’s Pick of the Week is the Phil Mickelson short game DVD set, we recap the Greenbrier Classic, and talk about the rumor that Tiger Woods is dating Jason Dufner’s ex-wife.
