Webb Simpson skipping the next major

10 posts in this topic

Well, I can't say that I would choose any different.  I don't think there is any way I would leave my expecting wife to go away and play golf.  It is a major, but family is family.  I figure this was a no-brainer as hard as it may have been.  Here is a quote from

Quote:
"After winning it's certainly a little bit harder to not go," Simpson told reporters at the Travelers Championship . "But in the grand scheme of life, it's a decision I know I'll always be happy I made."

Would any of you guys choose to play?

They were mentioning it on Sunday after Webb won, that he was planning on skipping the British Open anyway cuz his wife's due date is too close to the tournament date.

I applaud him for not changing those plans just cuz he won the US Open. He understands what's truly important.

Dummy needs to learn to read a calendar - just go back nine months from early December or late November. ;-)

Should be easy for a Christian. They only fornicate to procreate.

I think it's fine that he's skipping the Open... it's a long way to go and he'll have other opportunities to play it... as important as golf is for these guys, family should come first.

If that the case then the Simpsons are going to have 20 kids.  Webb's wife is hot!  I give Webb credit for still being able to focus on golf with something like that to go home to.

Youd think that if you were trying to have a baby that youd plan it so that the birth was during the winter but if the Simpsons are as religious as it sounds like they are, Im sure they dont believe in birth control and this baby was a little bit of an oops.

    • First round foursome clubchampionship was yesterday. First round is to cut the field to 16 pairs, format Stableford without handicap. You get 3 points for a birdie, 2 for a par, 1 for a bogey. Worse than bogey is zero points. My playing partner had the tee off on hole 1 and hit it left in the water. I had a shot avoiding some trees at 140y from the flag and hit it at 3 feet, par.  After 5 holes 9 points (1 bogey), but then a streak of 3 bad holes and still 9 points. But then 3 pars in a row and all together 11 pars and two bogeys (24 points) was enough to end 5th (best team 31 points).  Next weekend we will play against the team that ended 13th. That will be matchplay. 
    • Does it make sense to write ".........combined together"? Why not just write "............combined"? Let's not call the kettle black. Anyway..... the following are excerpts from The Australian Golf Club's Dress Code. They are not typical of what is expected in Australia, but  some of the snootier clubs are very strict and do little to change the stuffy reputation of the game. ‘Sporting attire’. Collared shirts which must be tucked in at all times. Tailored shorts to the knee, with a belt, may be worn. Closed in shoes must be worn with socks at all times (see Definitions for appropriate socks).  Men - Collared shirts which must be tucked in at all times. Trousers must be tailored and worn with a belt. Tailored shorts to the knee, with a belt, may be worn. When wearing shorts on the course, Members must wear long socks or short white socks which are either plain or which bear only a Golf Club logo. Anklet type socks are not acceptable. Shoes must be of a type which have been specially manufactured for the playing of golf.  Jeans of any description are not acceptable anywhere in the Clubhouse or on the Course. Children 12 years or younger are exempt.  If you turn up here wearing socks with a small Nike logo they will sell you a pair of plain white ones for about $30.
    • May 27th:- 10 mins full swing practice (Driver). Moved the tee further forward in the stance, and concentrated on sliding the hips to initiate the through swing.  
    • Whether I score better riding vs. walking depends on who I am with. I have two friends who are VERY slow players and if I am in the cart with them for some reason it cost my 5 strokes a round.
