KG’s Blog Post #76 – 8/23/10 8:34pm (didn’t get an exemption to Sept3-5 Pebble)

Quick note,

I may have spoke too soon as my afternoon as been filled with many surges, not stupid ones of the brain either. It may have been an omen to the news that I won’t be going to Pebble and the Hospice First Tee Open. I sit here in a state of disbelief as I once again have made the error of hoping for hope. I thank you all for listening to me babble in engolegism, as this is my 76th blog which is a bit higher than what I shoot these days.  So much for the theory that I’m such a credit for the tour.

I need a bubble bath filled with wine, women, and me. Off I go. Damn, I have none of the above at the house.

Ken

    Sports Memories

    August 23, 1985

    25 years ago

    Ken Green, who struggled through four frustrating years on the PGA Tour, yesterday (August 18, 1985) shot a 5-under-par 67 in the final round to win the Buick Open with a tournament-record score of 268, 20 under par. Green won by staging a tremendous charge over the last nine holes. Australian Wayne Grady led Green by two strokes at the turn, but Grady ran into trouble on the back side. Green’s victory was worth $81,000 and made him eligible for this week’s World Series of Golf. And because it was the Buick Open, he gets the use of a 1985 Buick for a year. It was the first Tour victory for Green, a 27-year-old who lives in the Marbledale section of Washington. He graduated from Danbury High School and went to Palm Beach (Fla.) Junior College and the University of Florida before turning professional. It was truly a family affair, with his sister Shelley as his caddy, while his mother and girlfriend were on hand for the final round…

    Nearly everything that could have gone wrong for the WINE baseball team did as a tidal wave of disaster swept WINE away in a bitter 14-9 loss to Shakers of Waterbury in the Stan Musial North Atlantic Regional finals…

    Former Danbury mayors Gino Arconti and Charlie Ducibella won the annual Mayor’s Cup Golf Tournament sponsored by the Danbury Club at Richter Park this week…

    Patti Murren of Newtown is the top-seeded player in the 12-and-under division of this week’s New England Lawn Tennis Association Citytrust Junior Sectional Championships. She had no trouble living up to her seeding yesterday (August 21, 1985), scoring a methodical victory over 10th-seeded Cari Berlage at Yale University. She is ranked third in New England in her age group…

    George Radachowsky, a Danbury native, will start at strong safety in place of injured Nesby Glasgow for the second straight week when his Indianapolis Colts go to Denver to play the Broncos in an NFL preseason game. Radachowsky played the first half of the Colts’ 24-13 win over Chicago last weekend. He made two tackles, assisted on two others, broke up a pass and recovered a fumble.

    Sixteen-year-old Kelly Adams, who is going into her junior year at Bethel High School this fall, is fighting for the right to play varsity football. Her quest, however, has been all but sidelined because the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference has a strict regulation prohibiting girls from participating with boys in contact sports.

    Ken:

    I am so impressed with your progress.

    I for one would be very interested in your golf training dvd. I am struggling to break 80 and working very hard at the game and I would pay $49.95 for your training…

    Man, man, man! Go buy a Mega Millions ticket, it’s like $130 milliion. SOMETHING good has to happen to you at some point, and you’re damn due for it! I’ll be very interested to see who they gave the Pebble exemptions to. Probably the usual, James Mason, Dave Eichelberger, Walt Zembriski, etc….of course no offense to them, *cough cough*. Our daily lives are controlled by politics 24/7, what more is there to say!

    Too bad about the exemption for Pebble Beach. Here’s my suggestion: 1) get your game finely tuned, 2) play some local senior events like you did last winter and get the competitive juices flowing with a victory or two (some near misses will suffice), 4) keep writing letters for exemptions and 5) Monday qualify if necessary. Good luck. You’ve already accomplished an enormous amount. You’ve even inspired me to get back out on the course this year after a 21 year absence.

  5. Jason says:

    It’s ok Ken. You have achieved so much already from just coming back to the game alone. Us casual golfers (and I’m sure avid ones too), can all agree that being able to do what your are doing is commendable, courageous, ambitious and even spreads hope to others in unimaginable ways.

    Just keep your head up and be proud of what you have accomplished thus far and will continue to achieve. If things don’t work out for you in the end physically, just remember that your potential to influence the golf world is unlimited. Hope is always alive and will never die, just like your love for the game of golf. Though, the only hope that truly is lost is me ever beating you in a game of golf.

    Stay strong and keep on truckin,
    Jason

    I’m sorry that the exemption didn’t happen. As far as I’m concerned it’s their loss. As to your being a credit to the tour you are absolutely are! Unfortunately the so called leadership of the tour is too fixated on kissing the backside of a certain recently divorced guy.

    We’re here for you regardless. Hoping for hope isn’t an error and cynicism doesn’t lift anyone up. You remain in our prayers.
