Mike Weir leads Mercedes-Benz Championship and teaches us a lesson in managing expectations

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailI was just browsing the news to see what was being said about the Mercedes-Benz Championship and Mike Weir’s 1 shot lead after the 3rd round and I read this quote from Mike: “I came in here with not too high expectations”.

D-day approaches for Jason Day

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailI heard on the TV today while watching the Mercedes Benz Championship that Tiger has announced that he’s going for the grand slam again (Ok…so the last one spanned 2 seasons – who cares).

Yummy yummy yummy, I’ve got balls in my tummy

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailDid you see this story? A python ate 4 golf balls thinking they were chicken eggs. Poor baby…well, that’s what you get when you try too hard for birdies…you end up with severe indigestion. Been there…done that! As much as snakes scare the dickens out of me, I’m happy it is alive and well and ready to hit the greens ... Read More »

Bullets and Boo

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailLOL! What was he thinking? Bullets in his bag? Well, if it was going to happen to someone on the PGA tour, it just had to be Boo Weekley. What a character! I’ll never drive on the I5 again, where there is a store that advertises “Bullets and Beer” without rewriting it in my mind to say, “Bullets and Booze”. ... Read More »
