Prasco Championship – Round 3

July 1, 2018

My player is Kristy McPherson.

We could not get off the course fast enough. Shot +3 and shut out on birds.

Thanks for a week off in the schedule. Kristy gets  to recharge back home and I’ll be staying over in Cincinnati at “Coffee Joe’s” place. Bully will be spending another week so we’re in for plenty more laughs.

Anthony Muñoz was in front of us in the pro-am and was the announcer on the first tee today.

I haven’t mentioned it previously but the errors by the staff continue regarding the pin position depths. The policy of walking on a line from the front dot on the green to the back dot, then trying to square off to the pin position, just doesn’t work. It can be off by five yards or more on odd shaped greens. During the first round, the pin on the par three third hole was marked as nineteen and the green depth on the pin sheet at thirty. That should give you eleven yards to play with behind the pin but in reality, it was only six yards. Even if they don’t use the yardage book to help with the pin depth, simple subtraction from their own measurement of the green depth would have come up with the correct number. There is too much on the line to make such blatant but preventable errors.

How about this extra during the LPGA Thornberry Creek Classic next week in Green Bay. According to a caddie memo just sent out, a Sea-Doo watercraft will be awarded to any professional and their caddie that makes a hole-in one on #8 during the 3rd and 4th rounds. There is no limit to how many Sea-Doos will be awarded.

Apparently, there was a major kerfuffle regarding the price of the greens books at the KPMG. A lengthy explanation was sent out from the creator and a $35 credit offered on the next greens book purchased.

Personally, I think they should be banned. If you can’t read a green at the pro level so be it. It’s part of the game. A detailed topographical computer printout of every nook and cranny of the putting surface is way over the top.
