I guess it is only natural for any golfer who wins the Masters to start thinking about the Grand Slam—in other words, adding the U.S. Open, the British Open and the PGA to his Masters title. As has been said many times before, he is the only one who has a chance that year. A Grand Slam is a most unlikely accomplishment, however. I will certainly try to win it, but I doubt anyone ever will. It does happen that I know and like all of the courses on which the next three championships will be held: the Olympic Country Club in San Francisco (the U.S. Open), Muirfield in Scotland (the British Open) and Firestone Country Club in Akron (the PGA).
I intend to prepare for these three events just the way I prepared for this year's Masters—limiting my tournament play and practicing early on the courses involved. I can only hope that things will work out as well.
