Got another leaderboard here that
might be better.

2nd day and its been tough for some because
its a new course they are playing on so they
are not familiar with it. Still, we will have many
good players playing the weekend. Yay..!!!!!

Congrats to J. Rahm for winning yesterday as
I flipped back and forth from American Pickers
to the championship to see the changing of the
guards as I called the players jockeying for 1st
place leader with each hole completed.

I really thought Justin Rose, Brandt Snedeker,
maybe Phil or Keegan would eventually take
the win, but was a no go.

Oh well, the best well deserving guy won
this tournament as we head towards the
middle of the week Wed. with the European
Omega Dubai Desert Classic 1st round
with Tiger Woods and Rory Mcllroy.

Then Waste Management Phoenix Open
1st round Thursday with Jordan Spieth,
Rickie Fowler and Phil Mickelson. TPC
Scottsdale, Arizona.

I get soooo excited looking forward to
watching golf come Thursday and the
weekend. I caught the golf watching
bug by the second yr of my sobriety
some many one days sober ago and
still have it today.

Altho some of those players have
gotten older, some more seasoned
than others, its still cool to see the
newer up coming players make their
marks in golf like many before them.

Anyway, feel free to pop in anytime
to share your thoughts, experiences,
in your own golfing careers or just
watching it and rooting for your favorite
players thru out the season.

Happy Golfing SR.

I always watch the last day of the 4 majors. I root for Jordan Spieth these days, Texas boy and seems like a good guy. My mom is an avid tournament golfer and watches a lot of tournaments. She really keeps up with who's good and what the golfers are like. She's always been a big fan of Tiger's and a few others. She also plays 2-3 times a week when the weather's ok.

I played some as a teenager, was never any good. But some of my friends were and would play in junior tournaments.

Snazzy....Maybe your mom can join
us here if she would like to talk golf.

I have my laptop computer sitting on
a cushion on my lap while typing away
and watch tv and golf.

Here is Dubai's Leaderboard below

Omega Dubai Desert Classic 2017 Leaderboard | Golf Channel

and here is Waste Management Leaderboard

Waste Management Phoenix Open 2017 Leaderboard | Golf Channel

Ive only played putt putt golf ...lol

I think it is cool that you did experience
playing golf and who knows, you may
want to pick up your clubs for fun down
the road. I'm sure its good exercise too.

I'm looking forward to watching a full
line up of exciting players this afternoon.

Tiger didn't do well on his first round
but hope he can turn it around before
the weekend and cut line. Will have to
see what happens. However, our newly
married Sergio is at the top of the leader
board for now and is doing great.

Dubai has been cancelled today for
weather issues, wind. AND Tiger had
withdrawn due to back spasms.

Listening to the announcers yesterday
seems like Tiger has reverted to a swing
that is causing him same similar problems
that he had before sitting out a yr plus.

I know many folks are chiming in and
want to give their 2 cents on his problem,
including me....lol Yep, I think he needs a
new caddie.... He did well with Steve,
is old caddie he had for a number of yrs
and he was right there talking to Tiger
all along the course helping him hit the
ball in the right direction.

I'm not familar with his caddie he's been
using for awhile now, but don't see him
helping Tiger at all. Or maybe its like he's
the only person Tiger can trust but don't
see him as active as Steve was.

There's no enthusiasm between the 2.
Id want someone to be right there with
me helping me see everything before
hitting the ball. There's nothing with
his caddie today with that.

And who messed Tiger up teaching him
how to swing like he's doing today, which
isn't working for him. It's destroying him
mentally, emotionally physically.

I don't now....im just as frustrated that
Tiger has gone down soooo much over
the past 2 yrs and looks older, worn out,
more so than some of the men older than
he is......

Just my 2 cents.

Muscular, back spasm, not nerves is what
Tigers spokes person shares this morning.

Someone asked who was his trainer or
what was his last name and the spokes
person denied him an answer. Hmmmm???

Go back to the trainer that taught
him at the beginning??? His early age.

All the what ifs with Tiger Woods and
his back. Change your golf swing someone
says. I say get a new caddy too.

I think he should return to the swing
that made him win so many times. When
he changed trainers and learned a new
swing, it messed up everything with him.

Of course I could be wrong. Just saying.

Good to see my buddy Sergio on top
the leaderboard as I'm watching it this
morning. Its just so peaceful to watch
the European golf without all the noise
from the gallery and from time to time
they show some gorgeous wildlife on
the grounds or trees.

This afternoon WasteManagement with
the noise decimal way up in the stands on
hole 16. How many are 3 or more sheets
in the winds from drinking all day to raise
the noise level way up there?

AN is the leader with Kuchar, Fowler,
and others inching towards the top as
well. Should be a good round this afternoon
with awarding the winner tomorrow.

Who will it be?

Snedeker fighting to win his possible 3rd
time and others working their way up for
an afternoon win.

My boy Jordan Spieth won! That Pebble Beach is a great tournament. I think it used to be named after Bing Crosby back in the day.

Hey Snazzy.....Yes, Jordan was in his element
that weekend winning that tournament. We'll
have to watch and see how he does thru out
the season with so many others, esp. Hideki Matsuyama
who seems to do little to no wrong in his own game.

You were also right about the Bing Crosby Pro-Am.....
which was founded in 1916 and has played
host to the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am,
formerly the Bing Crosby Pro-Am, since
1947, bringing thousands of visitors to
this picturesque community each year.

I was watching the Genesis Open yesterday
and heard them say that today maybe suspended
due to rain. Gonna have to check in with the
golf channel to see if that will happen.

I added the leaderboard for us to follow thru
out the weekend and may the best deserving
player win and bring home the trophy.

Good job for Dustin Johnson winning last

Glad that Rickie Fowler won last weeks
golf tournament as he along with many
other favorites are getting ready to play
WGC Mexico golf this weekend today.

Looking for a good round and for the
best deserving man to win.

Saturday Golf on TV. Anyone watching?

DJ/Dustin Johnson is tied right now with
"smurf" Rory Mcllroy and I'm rootin for
DJ. But don't count out lefty Phil
Mickelson with a great bunker shot
to bring him to 3rd position.

Looks like an awesome day in Mexico
to play golf. So many good shots so far.

Man, what a day of watching golf...!!!!!

There has been soooo many good shots
and PHIL, the star of the show....OMgoodness
he has played his heart out today and has
gotten himself in some tough spots and was
still able to save his par.

Then there was a good shot by Thomas
who has taken the lead. And DJ's ball gets
stuck in the trees but eventually falls out
and finishes in second place as of today.

I can't wait till tomorrow...!!!!!
