[sarcasm] Wanna know the best part(s) from start/week one on tour? Friday: Woke up with a sore throat, missed the cut, found out we can't change our 4/1 departure because all flights back to LA are full. Saturday: sore throat turns into full-on Death Cold. Sunday: have to change hotels to something cheaper/closer to the airport, cold just as bad. Although I did manage to get myself out of bed to take in a little bit of Jakarta an do a little souvenir shopping. Monday:...
Hahahah let me expand. "Real golf" meaning golf at the highest level. Vijay peaked in his early 40s. Kenny Perry got a second wind in his mid 40s and Tom Watson made it all the way to his 60sI got a taste of golf beyond that when I played in my boot after breaking an ankle. Playing for pars was a lot more fun then I ever thought it would be.
Prolly +4
I think I can answer that. I did get pretty good. At my peak I'd say I was playing to a +2.5. Which, is enough to play a tour, any tour, the problem is getting there. Sam literally had to win QSchool to get a full year of play on OneAsia. (66,69,66,74) Second and third place only got conditional status and maybe seven of the twelve available starts. The PGA Tour QSchool was so brutal because it was over four stages consisting of seventeen rounds. Slip up once and maybe you...
Yeah thanks. He Took it really hard yesterday. But as Stephen Leaney said in out practice round, this is one event of what will hopefully be a 30 year career. The events are about a month apart on this tour. Next is a pretty big one. The Volvo China Open.
Well, that sucked... [Lack of] Anger management combined with frustration combined with uncontrollably sweaty/slippery grips sorta sums up the day. Thankfully we aren't DFL! All was not lost as he did card two pretty solid birdies, and, I managed to sneak a couple "no no, I'm just taking a picture of our golf bag" photos with Yang YE next to us on the range. Oh, and I got some nice color going. Don't ask about the sock line though...
Round 1 and first things first. This bag was like nothing on my back. Maybe it was the excitement of our first round, the mystery of the unknown propelling both of us along today. It certainly wasn't the BLISTERING heat! I was practically running the course. Our comeback finish maybe had something to do with it too. So, paired with Michael Long and Young Kim. Long being a vet in the twilight of a solid steady career of global golf. And Kim being just 22 like Sam and also...
Yeah Fluff also Faldo's old caddy Fanny kind of set the unspoken standard of "if they can do it..." I'm very friendly with John Huhs past caddy Zeke. If I had to guess, Zeke is about 5'8" and about 220lbs. He hoofed it around Augusta National which is notoriously hilly. Another prime case of " if he can..." The thing is heavy, but only by a few more pounds. okay, maybe 10 pounds. I've got two rounds under my belt and it's already getting more tollerable. I suppose I...
Wednesday and Day 2 for practice rounds. In pictures. Got to play with Bio on the back 9.
Nah. I don't get to play at all. Don't really need to lug my clubs around the world. Hardest thing... This freakin staff bag! Wait no, this freaking bag plus 85* heat with 85+% of humidity.
