2012 Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Classic Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

The final stop on the PGA TOUR for 2012, the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Classic, gets underway this week at Disney's  Magnolia and Palm Golf Clubs. This will be the 41st year the PGA TOUR has stopped at the Walt Disney Resort location and for some the last final opportunity to break into the top 125 on the money list and avoid Q-School.  Others incentives for players are to get into the top 70 which earns exemptions to the Arnold Palmer Invitational and the Memorial. Cracking the top 80 on the money list means an exemption at Colonial.

You can keep up with the Projected Money List here

Camilo Villegas is currently 150th on the money list.  He shot an opening round 65 and is at the top of the leaderboard at -7.  Pretty important event for him, and a nice way to get started.

Justin Leonard finished 2nd here last year to move into the top 125 and will need a good showing this week as he currently is 138 on the $ list.  After an opening 73, he came in with a 67 today to put himself well inside the cut line, but will need to make a move this weekend.

These guys look like they are currently battling to make the cut and get the final 2 top 125 spots, but a lot can happen over the weekend

In some ways, making top 150 is more critical than making top 125...number 150 gets exempt into Q school finals which gives an additional shot at a full tour card and gets conditional PGA status regardless of the outcome at Q school.  OTOH, #151 has to go to 2nd stage and has no status if they don`t advance (but may have Web.com status if they were a full PGA Tour member this year)

Stewart Cink has status regardless as a major winner within the last 5 years, but this is a huge week for most of the other guys.

The 36 hole leader went to the hospital after his round...pretty bizarre stuff for Charlie Beljan who is struggling to keep his card http://www.pgatour.com/2012/tournaments/r045/11/09/wacker-friday-beljan/index.html#

Looked like he was struggling a lot of ways today - amazing round under the circumstances.

Serious stuff -

But it sounds as if he needs rest at the least, and to check his diet.

at one point, there were at least 30 within 4 shots, but 4 birdies in a row for Beljan have opened things up

Awesome story here.  He won his first PGA event after 23 tries.. and did it  while dealing with the panic attack issues.  Congrats to him!

Congrats to Charlie!  If he can continue to play like that he will definitely be a strong contender in 2013.

    • Here's what happened and why I ask the question. I have a brother-in-law same age as me (68) with no hobbies what so ever. He's a stock & bond broker with no outside interests at all. He doesn't collect stamps, he's not a wood worker, he doesn't play tennis, he doesn't do anything but work, work, work. He won't even sit down and read a book. (He claims he doesn't have the patience.) He has no interests other than the stock and bond markets and he's incapable of relaxing. He's also very, very uncoordinated, but nevertheless, a very nice guy. Golf would not be a good thing for him. He has come to me several times over the years and said, "I don't know how I'm ever going to retire because I won't know what do do with myself. Maybe I'll take up golf! You'll teach me!" And I said, "I will not teach you, I can't teach you because I'm not an instructor. You'll need to buy a set of real clubs, not the couple of old irons you have in your garage, and take lessons from a teaching pro." I did play golf with him once, maybe 10 or 15 years ago. He had a couple of mismatched irons, one ancient 3 wood with loose whipping and a putter all from, I'm pretty sure, from the Salvation Army store and he insisted on teeing up every shot, even ones from the fairway. If I say he shot somewhere between 140 and 160 (not counting the whiffs) I'm being charitable. We walked the 18 holes that day and it nearly killed him. When we were done he was totally drained and I actually thought he was going to have a heart attack. I also said to him, "You've managed to live 60 some years without golf, why start now? It will only frustrate you and drive you crazy." Then I jokingly, said to him, "It's too late for me...I'm hooked, but I can save you!" He mentioned it to me again recently so, in the interests of "growing the game" do I encourage him to buy clubs and take lessons or should I continue to try suggesting other things for him to do? (He does have a mammoth wine collection.). I really want to discourage him because knowing him like I do, golf will not make him happy. Also, selfishly, I don't want to play with hm again. That round 15 years ago took over 6 hours to play and there were many groups stacked up behind us cursing and yelling and we were being hounded by the rangers. It was awful.      
    • My first question is . Did you do all three exercises and how did you do ? This is meant as a fun test to see how ones' balance and core is. It is not meant to build anything. There are many exercises that progressively work up to addressing the entire body that help one hit the ball better, but that is not what this is all about. Thanks for your input. 
    • Thanks Lihu..I dont hate it, I just dont have fun playing ...so the interest isnt there any longer...I am still a golf fan..just not a player..
    • Hello everyone. I’m brand new (about a month) to golf, and I’ve been lurking here for a few weeks. I figured it was about time to join!    I look forward to getting to know y’all!
    • I have a distant cousin who tried it and even forced me to go to the driving range a few times long before I was into playing. I found it stupid and not worth my time, but did it just to keep him company. He never got the hang of it, quit then 6 years later my kids got into it and my archery range virtually shut down so I started playing golf with them. My cousin hates it just like you, and I started out thinking this is the dumbest activity ever made but now enjoy it. You never know what’s in your future, just take a break from it. We’ll be here, or, at least some of us.
