Volume Seventy-Nine

It’s only October 30th and I am already praying for the beginning of January to get here so we can see some real golf again.

Well the final 125 on the PGA Tour money list are in, and sadly, there weren’t any heartbreakers this year to speak of from the final regular-season event. I hate to say it, but after the Tour Championship, the entire golf world will be going into hibernation.

This week we take a final look at the Funai Classic and a very unlucky guy on the Champions Tour nicknamed “Boss the Moss.”

Hole 1: Choi Ahoy!
K.J. Choi becomes the first player in Tour history to shoot below 2-under par on the final day of the PGA season. All kidding aside, Choi made the final round look really easy with a 4-under 67 for a four-shot victory. [Link]

Hole 2: Putting for Dough
Lauren “Boss the Moss” Robert learned the hard way that the old saying, “drive for show putt for dough,” is really true. Who knew a four foot putt could lose you $500,000! Jay Haas owes Roberts a hug. [Link]

Hole 3: The “i” in Nicklaus
Former Ohio State grad, Jack Nicklaus, lived a childhood dream Saturday when he dotted the Ohio State “i” at halftime. The story sounds pretty cool. [Link]

Hole 4: Final Money List
The PGA Tour’s final money list in up with the final putt at the Funai Classic. Take a look and see if you’re going to be watching your favorite player on the Nationwide Tour next year. [Link]

Hole 5: Tiger Withdraws from Tour Championship
Tiger Woods becomes the second big name player (Phil Mickelson being the first) to withdraw from next week’s Tour Championship. Wood’s excuse for not playing? He was tired… I’m sorry, but didn’t this guy play the least amount of tournaments on Tour this year? [Link]

Hole 6: East Lake Overview
Check out the Tour Championship venue at East Lake Golf Club. I’ve played this course before and would highly recommend it! [Link]

Hole 7: Adidas to sell Norman Collection to Norman
As funny as it sounds, Greg Norman is about to buy the Greg Norman collection back from Adidas. I hope he got a good deal for his own clothing line. [Link]

Hole 8: Junior Golfer of the Year
Esther Choe and Philip Francis were named by the American Junior Golf Association as the Rolex Junior players of the year. [Link]

Hole 9: Going Dutch
The Netherlands win the World Team Championship of golf this past weekend in South Africa. I’m not kidding you, I didn’t know this tournament was even going on. [Link]
