Final Wrap Part II
Well, it appears Finchem was indeed asked a question or two about the Tour’s drug policy. Here’s a short Golf Channel piece on it.
Not the outcome I’d have chosen, but a decent enough event. Rory got his top ten, but it’s a limited field event. Still, better than last week. Right now I’m not too enthused about the Tampa Bay Open this coming week, but maybe some reason to care will crop by by Thursday. Oh, well, I need to get my tax return filed before April and Augusta get here. I was really looking forward to these past two weeks, but with Rory’s bad play, they were kind of anti-climatic. I think I’m suffering from a little golf burnout, so a quiet week might be good for me.
Oh, I saw Tim Finchem in the booth, and there was a mention of Woods, but no question about the PGA Tour’s denial of a suspension. I missed the following segments. If the question was asked, someone please let me know.
5:15 pm Update
Brandt Snedeker survived a torrid finish by Euro Sixer Marc Warren and held onto a tie. More on this in the future.
Rory is looking like he’s going to manage a back-door top ten.
J.B. is not out of this thing. Could be setting up for a wild finish. DJ, Bubba, and J.B look to be the only three left at this point.
3:40 pm Update
Good golf coverage? I loved the NBC story just now about J.B. Holmes playing on his high school team as an 8-year-old, including Johnny’s wisecrack about the standards being somewhat low for the team (breaking 60 for nine holes).
3:00 pm Update
NBC is showing hockey instead of golf. I’m disappointed. I was hoping to see the last 37 seconds of an NCAA basketball game play out over the course of 45 minutes.
11:45 am Update
I was an hour early regarding Sneds and Warren. I’m blaming it on Daylight Savings Time. By the way, EuroTourash Sixer Stephen Gallacher is still -3, with three holes to go. Right now, he has the best score of the day.
11:20 am Update
Once again a member of the Euro Six is tearing up the course. Stephen Gallacher, who finished T-6 here last year, is -2 through 11 holes. Make that -3 through 13 holes. On a day when Fed Ex Cup winner Billy Horschel is already +2. Euro Trash? I don’t think so!
The biggest story of the day outside of J.B. Holmes is the pairing of Brandt Snedeker and Marc Warren, one of the much-maligned Euro Six. They tee off in 25 minutes.
