The game of golf is serious business. Spectators can even be removed without warning for distracting golfers during the game. 
 While it may seem like all work and no play, off the course, a player's got to eat.
"We wanted to create a nice relaxing environment, with healthy food for the players to come and relax, get energized and go out and play the game," said Executive Chef Mark Lehan. 
In an exclusive dining hall, the players and their families will share meals. This year, the PGA is requesting a healthier menu.
"I'm usually seeking out different grains, whole grain breads and high protein," said Lehan. 
It's one of the few times golfers can let their guard down and maybe even chat with the competition.
"They're talking about the game, and the scoring," said Lehan. 
All over a meal prepared just for them in the executive kitchen.
"What they do tournament week is they make sure that all the tour players and all their families and guests are all well taken care of with anything that they need during the tournament," said Assistant Tournament Director Andrew Lehman.
