Corning Classic-The Final, Final Round

Stayed to the end. A collection was considered to get a State Trooper to TASE the Commissioner during the final ceremonies but decided against it.

More rumors: The LPGA offered Corning a $800,000 satellite event opposite Evian but they refused. ShopRite will be taking over the Sybase tournament. I won the Powereball. The Phoenix event is going back to Moon Valley.

Click-it or ticket: They’re really enforcing the seatbelt law up here right now and and least one player and caddie has the citation to prove it. L. D. and Café José will have to pay the piper.

The final word? The latest has a well known veteran player confronting the Corning Classic Board and asking for the real scoop. All the hype about outrageous demands from the LPGA was just that she was told. The fact is, they just did not have the money.

Fan interest: Did a search on a quote I heard attributed to Hall of Fame member Carol Mann during the “English only” controversy but it is pertinent to the discussion of a diminishing fan base. “I have friends who will turn the TV off or find other things to watch if Koreans are in the lead,” Mann said. “A couple of weeks ago, there were seven or eight of them . . . Not racist in the least. Just a fact.

Look who’s here: Cleartis Wiley is in the house. Looped out here many years and now travels the country driving his own 18 wheeler. Resides just 25 miles from Corning I heard.

Scraper’s turn to pose with “The Coyote”.

A final salutation from Frank, with a little tweaking.

And now, the end is here,
And so we face the final curtain.
My friends, I’ll say it clear;
I love this place of which I’m certain …

    Latest news: North Korea tests an even larger nuclear bomb than the last one 3 yrs ago.

    Also, the Korean members of the Ladies Pyongyang Golf Association are upset about how the inferior play of their non-Korean members is dragging the entire tour down. Their is talk about mandating more practice for these un-achievers until they properly honor their tour by shedding their personalities and acheiving a robotic style of perfection…..

    further…

    Heretofore classified CIA memo’s report a large training facility within North Korea. Initially confused as to the nature of this camp…using hi-tech satellite images the US government happily reported that rather than military base…it is only a sophisticated golf academy for young N.Korean girls.

    Sorry ’bout that LPGA

    When a round one match in the NCAA men’s lacrosse tournament between Brown and Johns Hopkins (can you say Zzzzzz…..) bumps the LPGA from ESPN2 (Kingsmill) its no wonder there’s no fan base.

  5. RCH says:

    First, North Korea launches its first ICBM (InterContinental Ballistic Missile). Second, North Korea tests another nuclear warhead. Third, North Korea launches more short range missiles.

    What’s next? Will North Korea send over its lady golfers to dominate the American LPGA? Er, ummmm, ohhhhh…..
