The article also says "it came after he hit a second ball"… so wouldn't that be his third ball?

Would REALLY like to see some AM player lead the pack on the third day, then told to go home!!  

post #43 of 66

I did a bit of web searching and learned that the AM spots for this tourney were simply sold for cash, but could not learn the cost. The highest H'cap i saw was 18, and plenty of those. Some AMs down to 0. 

Now the best AMs, lowest scores 3 days prior,  do play on Sunday, contrary to former post which claimed only 3 days for AMs.

 

And, now here's the stickler, any females in the AM bracket?  Since these spots were for sale and apparently open to anyone who could pay and could meet the H'cap requirement, seems likely that some ladies, many of whom could certainly play as well as old rich guy with 18 H'cap, would be in the field. 
Esp since the Pres (former) and probable Pres (to be) are major sponsors.

 

Well, more web searching.  Had to chuckle a bit to learn the tons of cash over the years have been pumped into the charity works of one of the richest areas of the country due to this tourney. 

 

Finally, what is Gary Player doing at this thing?  Not in either the pro or am field so maybe just a 'hanger-on' for old time's sake.  Oh, maybe 'Health Ambassador' and Humana spokesman.

Yes it is played on three courses. 

And it looks like they've gone to teams of 2.  I believe that when it was a 5-day tourney, the amatueus competed as teams of 4 alongside one pro.  But now I'm watching and I see a standard with 4 names on it, 2 of which are Horschel and Woodland.

 

I can't imagine how difficult it was in the old style for pros to have to play, basically, alone for 4 days while watching a bunch of hacks slow them down.

Doesn't really work like that, they don't keep an individual score, just the team score, and the Ams use their handicaps. ;)

 

EDIT:  @joekelly yes they are available to anybody who can afford it (only $29,000!!!) and has a handicap under 18.  Check it out:  http://thesandtrap.com/t/70484/ever-dream-of-playing-in-a-pga-tour-pro-am/0_30

Seriously..?  I think he's one of the funniest, and knowledgeable players out there. If I could play a round of golf with ANYONE..it would be Gary.

That's OK. Gary Player likes Gary Player enough for the both of you.

Interesting leader board as of now..Good to see Ryan Palmer within 3 shots of the lead. Looks like all the " Big Names" have some catching up to do.
