I can outblog PGA Tour's Tim Finchem while suffering from blog amnesia in anti-blog land
PGA Tour Commissioner Tim Finchem has a blog! He has a blog!!!
You can find it here, and let me tell you, it’s more entertaining than GolfWeek’s last meeting on how they should commemorate Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
Let’s take a quick look at what ol’ Timmy has to say:
Hello and welcome to the second year of the FedExCup on the PGA TOUR.
Ok, sorry, I just wasn’t ready for the FedEx Cup pimping to start so early.
We have redesigned PGATOUR.com to make it cleaner and easier for you to navigate. We hope you enjoy it, but let us know if you do or don’t and what changes you think we should make to make it even better. In a month or so, we will have additional features up and running to allow us to interact with you on a better and more consistent basis.
You could care less about the Web site, nor those that visit the Web site, nor the additional features. Admit it, Tim, and then maybe I’ll have a tinge of respect for you.
We will be making message boards available to you so that you can talk to us and to each other …
Take it from someone who knows, Tim, having readers talk to you sounds WAY better on the drawing board than it works in practice. Of course, I notice your blog doesn’t have a comment section.
And you will also be seeing more blogs not only from me but from our players …
If you can get Tiger Woods to write a monthly blog, I will dedicate my life to promoting the FedEx Cup. I’m guessing, though, that won’t happen, and that we’ll know a whole hell of a lot about what guys like Chez Reavie think ("Wow, the FedEx Cup is Great!").
I’ll be heading out to the Buick Invitational in San Diego next week to meet with our Player Advisory Council. If you don’t know, the Player Advisory Council has 16 members that are elected by our players. We meet and talk with the Player Advisory Council many times throughout the year and get their recommendations on issues that will be presented to our Policy Board. Our Policy Board is the board of directors of the PGA TOUR and consists of four players – Joe Ogilvie, Brad Faxon, David Toms and Stewart Cink – and four independent businessmen, who are currently Vic Ganzi, CEO of Hearst Corporation, Ed Whitacre, recently retired Chairman and CEO of AT&T, John McCoy, former CEO of Bank One, and Ken Thompson, Chairman of Wachovia. Also, the President of the PGA of America (currently Brian Whitcomb) makes up the ninth member of our Policy Board.
Great Xenu on a half shell, you suck Tim. I’m just amazed that in that morass of corporate butt-kissing you didn’t manage to work the FedEx Cup into it.
We are looking at ways to have more players get into contention for the FedExCup through exceptional play during the Playoffs, and we are also looking for ways in which more players in the field of THE TOUR Championship will have an opportunity to win. We would be very interested in your thoughts on this subject.
Wow, I hate you, Tim.
Well, that’s all for now, and I look forward to talking to you again in the coming weeks.
Just stop, Tim. You aren’t fooling anyone. It’s total drudgery for you and you hate doing it as much as we’ll enjoy ignoring it. Ron Mon writes a more insightful and interesting blog than you. Yeah, Ron Mon.
So there you have it, Tim Finchem has a blog. Now, let’s never mention it again.
