Although the traveling sounds exciting, it’s all part of the package.
“The traveling’s just something you have to deal with,” Wynn says. “If a person were to go in a town ahead of time and wanted to see something, they could work it in. Usually, the only thing you want to see is a pillow and a channel changer.”

“The U.S. Open’s always a great #tournament because you know it’s going to be difficult,” Wynn says. “There’s gonna be tons of people there, just waiting for you to screw up. #PebbleBeach, you go out there and you go, ‘Okay, what are we gonna see today?’ I enjoy anyplace where it’s a good old-fashioned course as opposed to some of the new courses where they just make them long because that’s what they have to do.”
