KG’s Blog Post #48 – 4/11/10 7:41pm
Quick note to all – Phil deserved to win – he played the best. I’m not a big fan of his, but you must give him credit. Tiger showed he does have some human in him with that quick damn it 3-putt on 14. I have never seen the greens so soft. People are worrying too much about this groove issue. I remember those greens turning blue out there.
I played for the first time in 3 weeks and ouch does Mr. Reid has some work to do – play hard my friend.
I’m not sure I have mentioned this, but the Champions Tour players are donating the pro-am purses to me for the rest of the year – a wonderful gesture that will help me immensely. It’s about $80,000.
As I skip along on my thoughts, the leg has fired up hard and I assume the golf was the problem – that plus it was cart path only which created even more issues. I shot 79 from 6,800 yard course but putted like a Norwegian duck. My hope is to play the Dicks Sporting Goods Open in Bunghampton NY in June – this will be my first individual event. When things go decent there I will play the event in Montreal on July 4 week-end. I might as well be the first in Canada with a prosthetic leg also.
To throw more strange news at you, I hope to play in the event in Korea also. Another first. This will only happen if I feel like a can shoot par. I’m thinking I can win the Russian senior Open in Siberia this December.
I’m looking forward to my new set of PING clubs. There is a miracle out there. By the way, my exempt status ends at the end of July so anything I play after that will be by sponsor exemptions. I also want to play the event at Pebble Beach – my favorite place on earth. It has a special meaning as I vividly remember Hunter playing there with me and having such a fantastic day.
I’m skipping around so much I feel like I’m smoking drugs or something. I will keep you posted on what Mr. Kostis does with my swing has we desperately try to find length and a swing in one week.
Be good and SHK to all. I’m already getting nervous. Damn this is some sort of world we have!!
PS: Typo in my #47 – should have read:
“5) H-W = they were both fine sippers” – just a test to make sure you were reading all of me.
