Install the Go commands in a central place

sudo -u admin GOPATH=/tmp GOBIN=/usr/local/opt/go/bin go get -u golang.org/x/tools/cmd/... && sudo -u admin GOPATH=/tmp GOBIN=/usr/local/opt/go/bin go get -u github.com/tools/godep
This will install the Go tools into the a central location so they don't need to be installed in each GOPATH. (I use a separate GOPATH for each of my projects, managed by direnv). The example above assumes the install path created by homebrew on OS X, modify to suite You can add any additional tools you want (See the godep example above)
