Titanic Beginning to 2007 PGA Tour
Oh my God…what am I watching? While the Golf Channel did their best to put a great face on the terrific top 30 players, oh, that is right; there weren’t many in the field, the guys playing the Bob Hope (Car Company) Classic…what a mess. And the Sony Open, won by a journeyman player, Paul Goydos, yes he is a household name…in his own household, but I think his kids just call him DAD…geez, do any of these guys know how to WIN?
Oh, Justin Rose, he needs Prozac or maybe some psychological help from Dave Pelz, the King of Crap. Lefty finished tied at 45, nice start Phil, but hey, glad to see you dropped needing a bra.
So, the industry is off to the races.
Let’s review, the guys who would challenge Tiger.
David Duval played well…and finished in the money. He says his game is good, just needs to make some more putts. Cool…go David, I am a fan…but beat Tiger, never happen.
Phil, nice to see some abs dude,
but beat Tiger, probably never again.
Luke Donald…last week at the Sony, looked like he was at an office visit for the parasitologist. Oh, and Charles Howard the THIRD, nice job blowing up. Who are these guys and why should we care? Oh, I am so like, in the “who cares” mode? Aren’t you?
The youngster 16 year old Todd Fujikawa shows up and shows us all what the game is about. Smiling, making shots, playing to the crowd, while his PGA counterparts, blew up like cheap porn dolls. What a contrast! He PUNK’D them! A 16 year old shows more class and love of the game and the spirit of the game that the PGA players, or the Golf Channel. I am stunned. I like Nick, and think the chick anchor is hot, what is her name? But, acting like this was an exciting train wreck is a disservice to the game. I know their thinking, hey, we are the announcers, “this is exciting” watching grown men gag, chock, and throw up a tournament. Can you imagine this during the Palmer, Nicklaus, Player, Trevino era. I don’t think so.
Where do we go from here?
This week, I am off to Orlando, FL and the PGA Show…the carnival of winners and losers, new products and industry hype.
As I leave you…hybrids are good…NICKENT products work well at a great price point. Find a putter you like to look over, and has an actual “feel” when you strike it.
Talk to you soon…from the floor of the Convention Center.

Wow, a guy who calls a spade a spade. Well written...
Put my 2 cents on Ron Mon's site...Who is the Tour banking on for the future of the game?
Tour event on television is getting to look like watching the European Tour...Need some sleep, click on Laidlaw and good night. Players you have never heard of, courses you can to assocaite with...Are we talking the Euro or American PGA Tour...one in the same.
Kelly Tilghman is there for the ladies...
The real PGA Show is in September in Vegas!!!
Faldo is there for the girls...
Not starting a bash or sexuality war, but how blind and innocent was her interview with Arnold Plamer, calling him Mr. Palmer, like it is the first time ever meeting him. Quickly corrected he asked to be called Arnold or Arnie... For God sakes, she works for him, he owns the Golf Channel. That was not the first time ever meeting him I am sure.
Back to the ladies thing, as a red blooded, straight white male, she is there for the ladies...
