When it comes to passions, it’s a wonder to me how people could just blog avidly about them. Because Average Golfer is all about a regular guy with an extraordinary passion for golf, I’m sure the other Average Golfers out there would be able to relate to this Bob’s fascination with Tiger Woods, golf, the PGA, the USGA, and all such other golf stuff that are just incomprehensible to me: a girl with zero inclination for sports.
Well, now that I think of it, I had wanted a set of plastic golf toys when I was 7, and I did play, and was passionate about, soccer in high school. So does this mean I have at least an iota of inclination for sports?!
Either way, to the golf lovers out there, Average Golfer may well be a great place for you to get the latest golf, err,
gossip, err, news, from. 🙂 :p 😉
We interrupt this broadcast….I have to get this off my chest. Who the hell cares if Roger Clemens’ wife was taking HGH or any other substance. If Roger was, then maybe she needed to in order to remain competitive in certain areas, if you catch my drift?
Back to golf. After the first day of play in the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am I listed the first ten finishers. Let’s see where they are now.
1. Kent Jones, T-12, 4 strokes out.
2. John Mallinger, T-22, Yikes!
3. Roland Thatcher, T-71, Roland the Headless Thompson Golfer, Bonus pts. if you get it!
4. Brad Adamonis, T-120, 67,77,77.
5. Jay Williamson, T-11, hangin’ tough
6. Michael Allen, T-3, only 2 back.
7. J.B. Holmes, T-61, 78 today.
8. Kris Cox, T-133, 82 today. Realized where he was I guess.
9. D.A. Points, T-11, Leading the abbreviated first namers.
10. Tim Herron, T-11, Needs a 64 or 65 in my opinion.
I guess we can see why they bother to play all four rounds. It must be tough to be in the top ten after day #1 and then miss the cut.This is a large field. That makes for some notables playing that otherwise wouldn’t make the starting gun. Notable observations….
Vijay, T-1, -9. It was hard to believe that this guy would be down for long. Phil, MC, I suppose it’s time to wonder. He loves these courses and should have played well. The little bit I saw him he resembled the gunslinger Phil, not the plan every shot Phil. Today he might as well been putting with a 2X4. Robert Floyd, -4. Making the best of an exemption and making the old man proud I’m sure. Jason Day, -6. Heralded Aussie. Youngest man on the tour. Showing flashes of the hype as the next Tiger killer. John Daly and Greg Norman, both +9. Same scores, different reasons. DL III, -3. Pretty good after ankle surgery and back problems. David Duval, +12. OK David, I admire your gumption, but maybe you should work this out on the Nationwide.
Tune in tomorrow for a winner. I need Herron!
PS-I was hoping to have the amateur winners to list. As of post time I couldn’t locate them.
