The PGA must find a way to bring more PGA golf tournaments to the St. Louis area. The crowds last week and particularly the weekend were massive. The PGA Champion, Brooks Koepka said he never saw or played for such a large crowd. And given the huge attendance, the behavior was excellent.
The “Get in the hole” shouts were rare, the jeering was not heard. 99.99% of the fans were respectful, even to the players they did not want to see beat Tiger. While the week belonged to Koepka, Sunday, Tiger put on a show, and nearly pulled it off. Koepka, however kept answering. Tiger needed to card a 62 to pull Koepka into a playoff, but Brooks’ 66 was enough to keep Tiger into 2nd place.
I followed Tiger a few holes, my legs told me no. So, I camped out on 17 and 18 and watched the board. I will never forget the roars. There was a Tiger on the prowl.
It was great excitement, thanks for the memories guys!
They, the best players in the world are on the range this morning at Bellerive Country Club, St. Louis. In a few moments they will begin the 100th PGA Championship. Despite what the national commentators may say, the course is beautiful……great shape considering the heat and humidity. We have our ticket for Sunday, championship day. It should be exciting. AND NO TIGER IS NOT TIRED! Except he may be tired of being ask! Its the last major of the year……..he can rest next week. Go Tiger!
One: Old school baseball, the way it was once played and should be played (in my opinion) is gone. The St. Louis Cardinal manager last evening, with a one run lead in the bottom of the tenth, intentionally walked a batter (with the tying run already at 2nd base) putting the winning run on base with only one out. I could see it coming, a double, a ball that gets past a diving left fielder, scores the winning run, GAME OVER! Nice going Mike Matheny. Old school, you don’t put the potential winning run on base. Gee, let the pitcher pitch. Also, you don’t give the pitcher his option. That is what you are there for, to manage the team!
Two: Illegal immigrants don’t become separated from their families, if they do not cross over the border illegally! You want to stay together………stay the hell where you are. Be the difference in making your country better! Try being a solution, rather than someone else’s problem!
Yesterday’s high was 64 degrees in St. Charles MO, (East Central Missouri), today’s high will be 43, cloudy, intermittent rain. Up and down highs and lows just bounce from one day to the next; one reason we have such stormy whether with threats of tornado’s so often here. Looks like rain for the next two weeks, especially on week ends. I may have to go out of state to get a round of golf in. BUT WHERE????
On the calendar, it’s Spring. However, old Mother Nature hasn’t woke from her Winter slumber. Currently (April 8) it is 35 degrees in Missouri, with a forecast of a high of 42%. Not exactly Spring temps!
The golf course and fishing lakes and rivers are lurking in my patience! Maybe next week?
