Solheim Day Two

August 17, 2013

The first shot I saw was the ace by Nordqvist. Not much after that. Some folks have to work. Here’s the video.

Dave asked – “Did you notice that Nordqvist has Gillie, who was fired by Korda at the Open, on her bag?”  They played together this morning.

Dude up in a tree watching the action on No. 11. It’s a bad spectating course, but that’s extreme!

Lexi and Charley carrying their elder partners. A good kind of drama.

So Caroline Hedwall will be the only player who goes all five matches on both teams. I would’ve played @ANordqvist too.

No one has ever won 5 points in a Solheim Cup. Could Caroline Hedwall be the first?

Why did Meg split up Korda/Pressel and Wie/Kerr?

Luke Donald – The time these rulings are taking is a joke – if the players can’t agree between themselves then the referees need to make the call.

Jason Dufner Only thing missing is some USA ribbon or face paint,what u think about it for Pres Cup?Guys won’t bust on u too much

Solheim Day One

August 17, 2013

I only happened to see a few minutes of the coverage via the TV in the pro shop. Some good pins on the final holes.

Looked like a vey interesting day according to this recap from Randell Mell of The Golf Channel. Plenty of drama.

Lewis furious over ruling – How can they screw up something so fundamental? The rules official really blew that one but why didn’t the players and caddies know it either? Why not demand they look it up in the rule book? Or did they?

“Bill Russell used to throw up before every game.” – Meg Mallon on Jessica Korda, who lost her breakfast on the first hole

Meg Mallon’s biggest beef with the ruling on 15 was how long it took. “If you know anything about sports, momentum is everything.”

Lewis said she was “very frustrated” by the ruling on 15 and felt a lot of things went wrong. She left course with more ?s than answers.

“She can’t be so mechanical in a Solheim Cup. She has to make birdies.” – B.J. Wie on why his daughter finds success in these events.

We’d like to bring you quotes from the European team, but the team bus managed to leave before anyone came into the press room.

I thoroughly enjoyed the American adaptation of House of Cards on Netflix so I decided see what the original British version had to offer. Jolly good stuff.

Even though articles regarding the Nexus 7 GPS problem stated Google was aware and working on it, I decide to give them a ring and report it anyway. Good thing. The geek on the other side of the line new nothing about it but walked me through a procedure he thought would provide a fix.

First, I had to access a special menu by pressing the power and volume buttons at the same time. Next was to navigate to ‘delete cache’ with the volume button and select it with the power button. I then rebooted. If that didn’t work a factory reset was suggested.

So far it looks like deleting the cache did the trick. It’s been working flawlessly. I used the app GPS Copilot going to work and back and it has worked flawlessly. We’ll see what happens in the long run.
