Texas Open: Saturday
I’d forgotten the San Antonio event was the Texas Open. I see I wrote about that as far back as 2014, but I must have forgotten. I thought it was probably the San Antonio Open. It’s the second or third oldest PGA event, and the sixth oldest in the entire world, or so various websites tell me.
I don’t know if Jordan Spieth skipped it this year or if he has never played it. I had been thinking he played all the Texas events. This year, I’m following Graeme McDowell and Ben Silverman, and that’s pretty much it. Haven’t watched any of it, but I did catch the women last night in prime time. They should play all their events on the West Coast. Makes for good television.
I didn’t watch enough CBS to make specific remarks about their coverage, so I won’t. The players I was interested in were covered on Masters.Org via 4-player (two groups) marquee groups, so I watched that exclusively. Thirty-six holes, both Saturday and Sunday, and not much less on Thursday and Friday. Continue reading
6:40 update: Reed wins
I’m burned out on golf. I watched nearly 36 holes both yesterday and today. The Masters.Org live streams were incredible. It was like being there. However, as a result, I couldn’t stop watching. So, that, combined with the fact that all my favorites fell by the wayside, has left me not wanting to see another golf ball for the rest of my life. As a result, I have an announcement: As of this moment, this website is Lanny H Tennis. Wimbledon is just around the corner!

6:05 pm: Leishman unleashes second greatest shot in Masters history! Pure incredibleness!
