The Open: Day Four

June 30, 2013

Just as many predicted. Soooozer! Got home early and turned it on. Didn’t take long for boredom to set in.

Sorry, no matter how Inbee performs, it really doesn’t add much to LPGA viewing.

With 5 Majors on the LPGA Tour this year, what is considered the grand-slam? I know. Breakfast at Denny’s.

Michelle Wie raises eyebrows as she withdraws from U.S. Women’s Open claiming illness 


Yesterday was the last time our Nextel push to connect was in service at Fallen Oak. We switched to walkie-talkies today. Roger, over and out.


The Open: Day Three

June 29, 2013

Looks like a runaway.

The course got tougher all of a sudden.

Beth Ann Baldry tweeted – “Michelle Wie WD’s with one hole to play due to illness.” – Another fine showing by Wie.

Jessica Korda fires caddie midway through her round – I’ve been fired after a round and even after a win but never during a round. But I probably should have been.


It was a hot one at Fallen oak today. Result, a two beer evening.


The Open: Day Two

June 28, 2013

By the scores, it looks like just another LPGA event.

Then there was this:

Jan Stephenson: Criticism of LPGA Cost Me Hall of Fame Votes

Alex Salmond to boycott Open over Muirfield’s men-only policy


The Open: Day One

June 27, 2013

Plenty of red on the board. Must not be set up very tough.

Michelle Wie starts with an 8 on her first hole, #10! Did make a good comeback with three birds in the last four.

Then there was this:

It’s official. Wegmans LPGA Championship moving to Monroe Golf Club

Women’s US Open coming to California

British Open Increases Champion’s Prize to $1.44 Million


I Spy

June 26, 2013

After all the news of government abuse, from the NSA to the IRS and more, I figured why not go all in.

After Flo convinced me to get on the Progressive Auto Insurance bandwagon, I decided to jump into the deep end by using their Snapshot discount program. Basically, it’s a form of behavior modification using a promise of reduced premiums based on driving habits. Here’s how it works.

You use it for six months but it makes an initial evaluation after thirty days. So far, they refunded $30 of my six month premium.


Are you excited about the Women’s Open this week? Looks like a fantastic setting. 


I was leaving Sam’s Club today and spotted a guy mounting his three-wheeled motorcycle. Nothing unusual about that except he was in a wheelchair. A vehicle of his own design, the trike had a ramp for the chair which folded vertically before driving. The other side had a row of bars to hold the rider in place. Where there’s a will …. 


Was thinking of getting a 7” tablet. Great sales on the Nook HD right now. Must be a clearance before the new stuff comes out. Other option is the Nexus 7.

Nook HD and HD+ Android Tablets Discontinued – No wonder they’re on sale.

Watched Pulp Fiction on Netflix. Classic!

June 25, 2013

An angry anonymous writer seems to make a valid point regarding the USGA’s super-secret process determining the order on which alternates get into The Open. This has been a bone of contention for many years on the LPGA. No one ever knew who was next in line. Check out this article and see if you agree. – U.S. Women’s Open alternate priority upsets anonymous person – Then again, was the claim of “cheating” by anonymous refuted by by the Google search mentioned?


An app worth downloading. – Dos cervezas, por favor! World’s first beer-ordering app translates ‘beer’ into 59 different languages

Nice Résumé

June 21, 2013

Didn’t realize that Mark Fulcher (Justin Rose’s looper) was also on the bag of Allison Nicholas when she won the Women’s Open at Pumpkin Rindge back in 1997. This according to my buddy Mark. Wonder if he has a British under his belt as well?
