The Greenbrier Classic
While I was away at the Bridgestone Inv. it was announced that the Greenbrier (in my home state of WV) is going to be hosting a tournament on the PGA Tour for the next few years. I had joked with my boss that I could quite possibly be gone for two weeks in a row to attend this one and the Bridgestone. But I don't think I'll be doing that. If I'm going to spend money and stay in a hotel, it's going to be for a tournament where I can see all of the players I'm a fan of. I doubt if guys like Ross Fisher, Martin Kaymer, or Lee Westwood will be making the trip to the Greenbrier. They might go for one year to see the place where the 1979 Ryder Cup was held, but I don't think they'll make the event a regular stop on their schedule. And they probably won't play it next year since it's a Ryder Cup year and they won't want the added travel to tire them out.
