Late last year, Golf Digest asked readers to write an essay about why they thought they could break 100 on the Torrey Pines South Course a week before this June's U.S. Open.

A reporter was calling that night from San Diego and asked if Long had received any contact related to the vacant head football coach's position at San Diego State. "No," Long said.

"This must be a pretty messy room," I joked, pointing to a ... [full story]
