    "The Unwritten Rules of the PGA Tour Driving Range."

    If you've attended a tour event or major championship, chances are you've spent time at the range watching the players warm up and work on their long games. Like me, you may have sensed there's a lot more going on than pounding balls.

    Wacker reports on the nuances of range life:

    Beyond the business of improving their games, there are business transactions being conducted, too, with the range serving as Main Street within the larger neighborhood of tournament golf. Over here is an equipment rep peddling some new magic elixir, over there a swing coach eyeing a potential client. Elsewhere, the media lurking for a hot story.
    "This is our office," says Brandt Snedeker. "We're trying to get work done out here."
    How each guy goes about doing so can be revealing as well, for there are few formal policies for this office. The rules are unwritten ones, tenets everyone who steps foot on the range understands or quickly absorbs so that the office can run efficiently.
