    Trainer is gonna go home and give his wife the second place business like she's never had before. Hopefully it's a good confidence booster for next time he gets close.

    Hopefully he doesn't get the same kind of response Lucas Glover got from his wife for not winning. 🙂

  2. Mac O'Grady, Don Pooley, Bobby Watkins.


    3 players in the group I was the standard bearer for at the 1989 US Open.


    O'Grady & Pooley were great.  Watkins not so much.  Mac & Don made a point of introducing themselves to me & the walking scorer on the first tee.  Watkins never said a word to us.  I guess he was too important to do that.

    My exercise is walking 9 holes four or five days a week in season, and the equivalent of that around town during winter. Screw Mark Twain. 😉

    I'm like you.  I'm walking 9 holes & doing it with 5 clubs...

    the commentators much superior to USA blabbers

    This I agree with.  US golf announcers seem frightened of silence.  They feel compelled to fill the air with words as much as possible.


    Euro announcers come across as relaxed and without a sense of urgency to rush in with comments even when nothing needs to be said.

  6. Time travel to the 1975 Ryder Cup & leisurely stroll the grounds with the small gallery. 


    I was there in 1975 & walked along side Tom Weiskopf as he watched other players play their matches.  He seemed like a giant to me 🙂
