I think when the golf season ends we start back and go season 2 round 1..or do we just see how many rounds we go?
Remember we talked about the finishing moves and that guy that did the little dip packing move...Chesson Hadley.. who i would say may have had a little bit of crumbs on his shirt after that round.. +4,.. he could go 2 over and win the tourney and goes 3 over last 3 holes.
Garrick Higgo- the lefty!
How did the new event play out. Greens looked good, typical Carolina course ..the low country
If I was going to have an event on tour 1 time I would make a ridiculous trophy, a ridiculous jacket..just over the top.. make it memorable
Smylie Kaufman..has no grins on his face after this past week.. smylie is actually his middle name..Carter is his first name..won the shriners in 2015 so he hung out with Timberlake at least once. He was also the first athlete signed to Natty Light (2016) Good for him, got paid and then hasn't done much..drinking too much of that nasty natty.. if he did anything of value it would have been a huge win for the bros of golf
Adam Schenck..with a name like that I dont if we have to add anything except all that he would have had to overcome in his life to become a professional golfer
I was giving a lesson the other day to a kid. Let's say 8 years old and besides the normal convo stuff - favorite super hero, favorite tee in the bag type stuff he asked who my fav golfer is..I deflected bc i wanted his answer first. I opened with rickie (safe bet), no. Rory. Nope..gotta be tiger. No chance.do you know what he said his fav golfer was ...brooks koepka. I was floored (also bandwagoner) so then he asked who mine was and I said bryson and do you know what he said "whose that?" ..lesson over bud!
Golf shoes- what size andy so I can order the square shoes.. and im honestly banking on the shoes not working so I can have another rant about how stupid they are.
Do you like spiked or spikeless- favorite styles..classic or the new sock shoes g4
Torrey Pines is named after a rare pine tree (the Pinus torreyana) that lives in only two locations – Santa Rosa Island off the coast of Santa Barbara and in San Diego within the Torrey Pines State Reserve. The Doctor who discovered the tree in 1850 was not Dr. Torrey; instead it was discovered by Dr. Charles Parry who named it in honor of Dr. John Torrey, who was his mentor.
The original design of the course was laid out by William P. Bell but passed away before it was started. His son, William F. Bell – oversaw and completed the final course design. Torrey Pines Golf Course opened in 1957 and has two 18 hole courses on-site.
Though sources seem to be inconsistent, Torrey Pines has been redesigned multiple times. Billy Casper, who then had a design partnership with golf architect David Rainville, redesigned both courses in 1975. This was followed by Stephen Halsey and Jack Daray, Jr. in 1988.
The last redesign was in 2001 by Rees Jones. In hopes of being selected to host the US Open, Rees Jones was hired and set out to rebuild the South Course. The rebuild was a success and, in 2002, Torrey Pines was chosen to host the 2008 U.S. Open and will host the U.S Open again in 2021.
Whats your forecast for next weekend?
