CHASKA, Minn. — Cool scene late on Friday near the ninth and 18th greens, which sit next to one another, at Hazeltine. Shaun Micheel, the 2003 PGA champion, was 10 over par and headed down the road as he waited to putt. Peering over to the gallery, he gave a little wave to his 2-year-old girl, Marin Belle, putting a smile on her face. When he finished putting out for a par, he then took his little girl in his arms and headed off to scoring.
He’d shot 76-78, but there things a lot more important than golf.
