On The Tube/Net

February 25, 2014

Sunday’s season finale of Downton Abbey was a bit of a letdown. A few of the scenarios were predictable and nothing left me wanting more. Disappointing.

Watching House of Cards again. I’m starting from the beginning to refresh my memory and add continuity. First three episodes in the can.


The two miracle up and downs by Victor Dubuisson in the playoff were the highlight of the weekend.

I’ll Be Back! Maybe

February 19, 2014

Life on Tour may be going live once more.

Fallen Oak will close from Memorial Day till Labor Day to redo the bunkers and the Outside Services staff will not be needed. So, I may be looking for a summer bag on tour. It all depends if I can take a leave of absence. Otherwise they’ll try to place me at the Beau.

Caddies, keep your ears open.

I posted this on facebook and Jaybird replied that I’d be 10th in line amongst the old-timers.


It was media day for the MGRC at Fallen Oak yesterday but I was absent. Had the day off and took a country drive to buy some Powerball tickets.

Down Under Report

February 16, 2014

Chella Choi hit her tee shot on #2 to the right in the trees and towards OB fence. final round.

The ball came to rest in wire mesh of OB fence. She was given rulings by both Australian and LET Officials advising the ball was out of bounds.

Not good enough, she asked for a third ruling by LPGA Official, who eventually convinced her that the ball was out of bounds.

She and caddie were driven back to the 2nd Tee to play her 3rd shot.

But the tee markers have already been removed.  LPGA Official indicates the painted dots of where tee markers were and confirmed her tee ball was OK behind the markers.


Chella made double and followed up with a bogey. Only one birdie all day. After her 62, that 74 had to feel like an 80.

Barber Shop Politics

February 12, 2014

As I entered Cox’s Barber Shop for my monthly grooming, one of the patrons brought up a news story that Attorney General Eric Holder wants the right to vote restored to ex-felons because it’s unfair. One of the barbers responded “You know why?” which prompted my spontaneous reply “They vote Democrat.”

Everyone seemed to agree but the look on the face of the customer that barber was trimming said otherwise. Even in Mississippi, liberals lurk in the shadows.


TOURLDY was a license plate I spotted after my cut in Ocean Springs. Had me wondering if it was the LPGA Tour.

It’s All In The Genes

February 8, 2014

Cheyenne Woods is one round away from making a huge statement in women’s golf.

Dale said he saw veteran Neil Carter on the bag. The cream does have a tendency to rise to the top.

Correction: Ozzie Steve was at the tournament and said it definitely was not Neil Carter on Cheyenne’s bag. One commentator said his name was Will Swift.

In Cheyenne’s winning speech, she said that it was the first week that Will had caddied for her.

Also, former LPGA pro Sandra McKenzie was doing on course commentary.

The Australian Lady Masters is underway and Lorie Kane was T3 after one round which had me wondering if this could be a rebirth. But looks like round two is catching up with her a little. Its still early.

Super Dud

February 3, 2014

Not much “super” about it. Even the commercials sucked.

I didn’t have a dog in this fight until minutes before game time. But things changed and I was hoping for a blowout with Seattle on top. Dreams do come true occasionally.

The best part of the entire spectacle in my opinion was Joe Namath’s premature coin toss and the ref’s spontaneous catch. Payton Manning could only dream of having completions so clean.


First signs of preparation for the 2014 MGRC at Fallen Oak showed today. The tournament set-up golf carts arrived and the golf operation trailers will pull in on Friday.

Happy Groundhog Day

February 2, 2014

Groundhog Day, one of my favorite movies for inexplicable reasons. Go figure.


Actually turned a loop yesterday. It’s been awhile. Good group with plenty of trash talk.


I’ve started  a 30 Day Challenge. For now, I’ll keep it to myself.

Why not join me? Pick something you always wanted to do but never got around to it or something you wish to eliminate from your daily routine and do it for 30 days.

The best part is that it doesn’t have to be forever. Just a measly month.
