Luke, It's Your Destiny... to Give Us a Tip

No Darth Vader here. And it may not be Luke's destiny to win the money title and POY, but he certainly came ready to play.

Unlike his last event in Europe a couple of weeks ago, where he missed several short putts, he looked fresh and ready to go on Thursday. He hit lots of fairways and greens, and made lots of putts. And while there's a lot of guys tied with him, at least he's tied for first place. It's shaping up to be a great tournament between him and Webb Simpson.

Ironically, his play was so good Thursday that he didn't need to use his sand skills. Almost everyone agrees that Luke is one of, if not the best sand player on Tour right now. So I thought it was a good time to post one of his sand tips.

The interesting thing to me is that Luke says he leans the club shaft backwards at address for this shot. That's not something you hear many sand players recommend. You might want to try it, especially in soft sand where using the bounce is even more important.

And who knows? Luke's at Disney, where the Star Wars ride "Star Tours" is. Maybe old Darth will be right this time.
