SBS Open

A double on the last hole stopped us from moving into contention. Shot even.

We know who you are: The only addendum to the slow play rule is the option for an official to time only one person in the group instead of all three. About time.

Headin’ for the show: Dina’s niece, Laura Ann, has moved up from commercials to the big time. She landed a role in the next Adam Sandler film, Bedtime Stories.

Worth a look: Check out Hound Dog’s LPGA Blog. He has video of the near eagle we had on fourteen.

Trivia answer: Steve McGarrett’s right-hand man, Danny Williams (played by James MacAthur) took LPGA pro H. B. Duntz as his third wife many Hawaiian moons ago. The following was taken from THE HAWAII FIVE-0 NEWSLETTER October 2002

Many of you wondered how Jim met his wife H.B. Duntz. Jim belongs to the Waialae Country Club on Oahu. At the time a friend of his asked if he had met the new golf instructor, H.B., “I don’t need golf lessons I told her,” Jim related. “And then I was crossing the parking lot and met H.B. I quickly decided I needed lessons from her.” H.B. had taken a year off the tour (LPGA) and was the golf pro at Waialae.*”

Hey, pass the doobie: I’m hearing bits and pieces of the newly implemented drug policy so don’t take this to the bank.

Players will be chosen at random, notified when completing the round then escorted to the “doping station” where a urine sample is taken. If tested positive, another sample is taken to verify the results. If positive once more, they have 45 days to appeal. The penalty is steep. One year off and back to Q-School. Second offense is a lifetime ban. I’m sure there’s more to it.

You make the call: Super-fan and volunteer Dave Hamada, is handling player transportation from the hotel to the course and back. Hobbled recently by a hernia operation and injured leg, Dave has been regulated to using a cane for an aide and after close scrutiny of his comings and goings, I perceived something eerily familiar but couldn’t put my finger on it. Then it hit me. The subtle nuances, crunchy exterior and outlandish attire mimicked a favorite character of one and all. See if you agree.

    In the final moments of coverage, there was Dina! Brilliant shot at 14. You can see the clip on my blog. Her finish broke my heart. Get that Top 20 tomorrow.

    Not quite a Top 20, but a good weekend! Thanks for plugging my blog.
