2008 WGC-CA Championship - The Tournament That Wouldn't End.

I'm trying really hard to stay interested in this WGC event at Doral. For me it's become longer than 9th grade math. Rain, rain, rain, dark. What's next, locusts? The last tournament to be canceled by locusts was the 1976 Biblical Open in Tel Aviv. As I recall, the water hazards posed little difficulty, but the bunkers were bastards.

Geoff Ogilvy leads this thing at -17 through 9 holes. Two back are The Big Fijian and always spunky Jim Furyk. There's seven other players within 5 shots of the lead including Eldrick T. Woods. They plan on unraveling this baby starting at 8:30 AM tomorrow morning. Hopefully the weather cooperates and I can write about something else. I'm thinking dessert recipes would be a nice change of pace. Or doilies.

We Have A Winner!

Greg Kraft finished at 14 under par to win the PGA Tour's inaugural Puerto Rico Open held at Coco Beach Golf & Country Club. He edged Jerry Kelly and Bo Van Pelt by a single stroke in an event not marred by weather or darkness. It's a Fedex Cup event and gained Kraft a two year tour exemption. Kraft earned $630,000.00 for his efforts. Van Pelt had led after each of the first three rounds. Congratulations Greg.

I'll be working when they finish with the Blue Monster. Will someone else please step up and update this thing?

Til' next,


  1. Might be some problems getting to the Tavistock Cup tomorrow...

  2. sry, wrong link,

  3. They won't make it. Did you see how much money they're playing for at the Tavistock now? A little more than a backyard pick up game.

    Thanks for visiting.

  4. They made it, but the Tavistock Group had to charter a private jet and a helicopter to take two sets of players from the airport in Orlando to the golf course. Those guys have to be tired.

  5. I'd feel better about my job if I had a helicopter.
