it's going to be a good tourney
but I would rather poke myself in the eye with a blunt stick than watch golf :huh
What's your address? Can ship stick.
Golf - great game for everybody else but I prefer to ride.
10p nails, 16oz claw hammer, forehead.
I have guess that you are a little ball chaser
Tiger, Tiger, burning bright. -3 after 14, atop the leader board.
Also, USA - Poland tomorrow morning - big game for a team its own country is indifferent to.
Since someone started this thread, I'll feel free to gloat. I just got home from my day at Bethpage. Very cool, my first trip to a pro golf tourney, and I managed to see just about all the top guys at least for one hole. Very drunk, too. A dozen beers, and stopped counting...
Good time all around.
And people were generally nice to Monty.
" A good walk wasted"
I think Monty's brought his problems on himself with what I recall were a number of anti-American comments in the 90s. While I believe in civility, I have a hard time feeling sorry for him. You open your mouth, you expect a reaction.
I didn't realize he was unpopular in Europe as well. As good as he is, he'll always be tainted by his failure to win in the US. Not to mention no major championships.
:lol1 I knew somebody would pick up on that.
yea!! they space the beer tents out just about right!!! too bad it cost you an arm and leg to buy a brew.
Tiger has his putter working so far. If he keeps that up, it'll be hard for the others to catch him.
One fine day, Jim and Bob are out golfing. Jim slices his
ball deep into a wooded ravine. He grabs his 7-iron and
proceeds down the embankment into the ravine -- in search
of his lost ball.
The brush is quite thick, but Jim searches diligently and
suddenly he spots something shiny. As he gets closer, he
realizes that the shiny object is, in fact, a 7-iron in the
hands of a skeleton lying near an old golf ball.
Jim excitedly calls out to his golfing partner: "Hey Bob,
come here, I got trouble down here."
Bob comes running over to the edge of the ravine and calls
out: "What's the matter?"
Jim shouts back in a nervous voice: "Throw me my 8 iron!
You can't get out of here with a 7!"
Actually, at $4 a beer, it isn't that bad for a sporting event, although most of the tents had only Michelob light. Had a few good mixed drinks at the corporate open bar as well
Spent a lot of time at the par-3 14th, where we saw a Tiger birdie.
Monty actually played alright, we saw him miss a shortish birdie putt, and his putting was mediocre all day, and it cost him. A lot of ugly scores on day one though. The course is amazing, bunkers from hell and some thick tall rough. I may have to do the sleep in the car thing to get on the course one of these days. It'll be spectacular after the Open finishes.
Yeah, I thought I'd hate it, but it's more fun(and aggravating) than it seems. It just takes too damn long, so I don't play much. On public courses near NYC, 6 hour rounds are common.
Golf ought to be a contact sport
it's Flog spelled backwards :lol1
today, Tiger (and the other morning tee times) got caught on the course in the rain. It may soften the greens and help some others catch him. It will make the course play a little longer, too.
wow, only 2 players in the morning group are under par, right now. Tiger and Duval. geez, that course is winning this tourney.
