You Say Golf Is Not As Competitive Today? Look At This……


Take a look at the names that are at risk of NOT making the cut today.  How about some names like:

Bubba Watson, Luke Donald, Lee Westwood, Bill Haas, Robert Allenby, Angel Cabrera, Matt Kuchar, Rickie Fowler, Sergio Garcia, John Rollins, and more.  Are you kidding me?  These are some top dogs that won’t see Saturday morning!

I’m old enough to remember the good old days.  How many great players did we have?  Sam Snead, Tommy Bolt, Arnold Palmer, Ben Hogan, Billy Casper, Byron Nelson, Gary Player, Gene Littler, Chi Chi Rodriguez, Doug Sanders, Ken Venturi, Ray Floyd, Julius Boros, Tommy Armour, and yea and Jack Nicklaus.

Ok we had a few but still, for the most part, there are a lot of really good young golfers out there and there’s more all the time.  Better preparation in college and don’t forget all the mini-tours you have now that did not exist then.

My only concern is that the young players of today are not quite as colorful or unique in their mannerisms.  You didn’t have to ask who’s that swinging.  So many swings that are robotic.

I’d like to see Bubba throw his Pink driver in the lake sometime just like Tommy Bolt!  I wonder if the pink color makes it float?
