What's up

Well, the KLM Open is going on over in Europe. Some great players are competing there this week - Darren Clarke especially is doing well. Jose Maria Olazabal was there for two rounds but missed the cut. I really hope he gets back to full time competition. I miss him.

The Solheim Cup is going on. And on. And on. Apparently the morning matches were very long. It looked like most of them went the full 18 or near it. Good for people who bought tickets. They don't have to go home early. Probably not so good for TV. Rich Lerner on the Golf Channel is just waiting to pounce on the expected "cat fight". It's disgusting. There was a discussion today between the European team captain and the rules officials regarding some damaged ground and Rich just couldn't wait for the women to start fighting. After it was over (no fight ensued), Rich asked if this would have a lasting impact on this year's matches. Huh? He's trying to create some news apparently. If it's that boring to him, he should quit his job. Maybe a job as a Walmart greeter would stimulate him a little more. He can wait in anticipation for that annoying shoplifting bell to ding and then force some women prone to catfights to empty their purses. Women everywhere should write into the Golf Channel complaining about the negative stereotype he's promoting.

The Wyndham Championship - Chris Riley shot a 63 today and currently leads. Sergio is only 2 back and Fred Couples is only 3 back. Brad Faxon is currently T43. He might make a cut. Yay! Steve Elkington went shot 65-75. He's probably not a happy camper considering he went from 5th to T101st.

The Jeld-Wen Tradition - A Major on the Champions Tour. That's all I know about it. I would love to check out the scores on the Golf Channel website, but the website won't load for me. Why is it when a webpage doesn't load properly, the ads on that page always do?

Nationwide Tour - Christmas in October but it's August and Labor Day's coming up in a couple of weeks. The Christmas in October organization helps restores/repairs homes for the elderly, handicapped and financially challenged people in Kansas City. I haven't kept up with the Nationwide Tour this year so I don't know who's competing. But I'm sure everyone now will be humming Jingle Bells or Oh Christmas Tree thanks to this event.
