tiger shot a 68 yesterday at the bridgestone. not a bad return at all.
i'll be interested to see how he fairs this weekend and next with his bum knee.
i hope he gets back into the mix. but i don't know if he's going to be able to compete with the youngsters like mcilroy, day, moore and fowler. those guys are the new generation of golf, and they are really fucking good.
pumped for the PGA Champ this week. my buddy that gave me passes has been on contract at atlanta athletic club for a number of months now. he works for a company that does temporary stadium seating.
what does this mean for me other than free tickets? it means we get to park on site at his trailer/office that has a fridge and air conditioning. what does that mean? it means that we'll be smuggling copius amounts of alcohol into the venue and not paying a dime to drink over priced beers. it also means that if it rains, we'll have a place of our own where we can sit around and get hammered.
i'm pumped as shit.
last time the PGA was at atlanta athletic club, david toms took it. i'm rooting for him this year. he's been playing great golf all year, and he's one of the good guys on t00r.
mahan looks like a 10 year younger versions of toms
watney better not have to face oglivy again, that same oglivy that grew up on royal melbourne
i'm starting to like bill haas a lot more too, like watney, comes off as just a regular dude who doesn't appear to take himself seriously, more than likely laughs at racist jokes, mocks his peers, feels awkward addressing the media, and yet remains clutch as fuck
just turned it on, looks like my two favorite players are sitting out alternate shot play, watney and stricker, fuck
pretty solid course, got a deal for $36. shot a 92. would've been better, but i got drunk and fell apart on hole 16.
also came really close to getting my first ace on my local 9 hole muni course last week.
it's uphill and a blind shot to the green. 185 yards, but plays more like 200.
pulled my hybrid....walked up the hill, couldn't see my ball until i was standing on the green and it was about 2 feet directly behind the cup. i was pissed, and i missed my birdie tap in.
want to take more advantage?

I've played 20 different courses already this year, i'm pretty sure that by next spring i'm going to relocate somewhere warmer and play golf at least 5 times a day
on Saturday I scored my highest score per side(+19), on the back nine I scored my best side of the year (+4), 6 pars, a birdie, a triple and a double
I 4 putted on the triple bogey, all 4 putts were from the exact same spot about 10 feet from the hole, all 3 misses stopped within 3 inches of the hole, only to roll back down to my feet
played at my old stomping grounds yesterday, really weird course that is below muni standards, but still fun, huge ass greens, laughable area of extremely high rough surrounding every green, 2 par 3s that are 230 yards, and 2 par 5s that are like 400 yards....I eagled one of them, putting out of the monster toothed rough, even though it was basically a birdie, I fist pumped hard enough to execute an abortion
