Ramblings From The PGA Championship Rough

So, two of the most important tournaments of the year are played at Atlanta Athletic Club AND at Eastlake, and it’s two different places?  How do they pull that off?

Could John Hawkins stop talking over everybody else on GolfChannel’s 19:th hole?  He’s particularly full of himself these days, and so very proud of his opinions.  Enough already.

Forget the PGA Championship:  The Red River White Ball Shoot Out III is three weeks out.  THE tournament of the year.  Boomer Sooner.

I’m done trying to predict winners for golf tournaments.  This week I’ll be cheering for Dustin Johnson, Lee Westwood, Jason Day, and Anthony Kim.  DJ has to have some major golf karma coming his way, Lee and Jason have been playing as well as anyone this year, and my affection for AK is well documented (and he HAS been playing better).

Phil who?

So a few weeks after Darren Clarke wins the British Open they’re saying that Tiger is “A long way” from competing.  He finished T37 at Firestone, and The Highlands Course provides a lot more ability to recover from errant tee shots.  I expect him to compete, and it won’t surprise me at all if he wins the thing.  How long will they continue ignoring the random element that goes into every golf tournament?

There’s a new golf movie coming out, other than the one based on golf In The Kingdom.  Does anyone know anything about it?

Another major in Georgia.  Must be time to make some peach flavored Martinis.

How is it that Tiger can’t even take the high road on the Stevie Situation without someone in the media pounding on him?

Looks like a mower tore the heck out of one of the greens in Atlanta.  I look forward to seeing these guys putt on the kind of crap I usually play on.

I think the whole idea of “The Chubby Slam” is funny.

That is all.  Keep’em in the short stuff.

  1. Boomer Sooner indeed, O Kilted One, from up here in Indian Territory. Got the chance to bear my knees at the Scottish Games in Tulsa recently.
