McDaniel is set to play in July 18th's Barbasol Championship in Lexington. McDaniel will reunite with so former teammates during the tournament.

"It's great you know," said Chip McDaniel. "It feels like a college practice round a few years ago, except there's ropes and stuff like that. So it's really cool and it's nice to catch up with those guys. I don't get to see them as much as I'd like to now, so it's just a great experience, today and yesterday."

McDainel says playing in the U.S. Open in June and the other PGA Tournaments this season, he is far more comfortable on the course.
