Volume Ninety-Nine

Zach Johnson just petitioned the PGA Tour to hold all events in Georgia.

Hitting the LinksSure, the one weekend in which I didn’t watch any golf we have the Cinderella story that is Zach Johnson winning again, Lorena Ochoa continuing to dominate the LPGA Tour, Padraig winning on his home turf, and Seve making his debut on the Champions Tour. I need TiVo!

This week we have a recap of The AT&T Classic, an Irishman winning the Irish Open, and and some numbers to make your head spin.

Hole 7: Weather Factor
The weather could be the biggest factor next month at Oakmont. I’m expecting at least a foot of rough. You might need GPS and search dogs to find errant tee shots. [Link]

Seve’s offers up some nuggets on his golf game, the Champions Tour, and Sergio. [Link]

Hole 9: Crazy Odds
Jacqueline Gagne has had 10 holes-in-one in the last four months! The odds of that? Closer to “none” than “slim.” [Link]
