Just after reading Marc’s description of his ball rolling back to its starting point, I saw David Feherty on TV roll a ball on the 16th at Turnberry in Scotland, site of the British Open this week. I could not help but feel Marc’s pain…almost seems unfair after a good shot. At Turnberry, on the 16th hole, it is likely that if players do not get the ball far enough onto the green with their approach shot, it will roll back off the green…into a creek. Keep an eye out for painful facial expressions on this hole. They may even look live average golfers!
What I like most about watching the (British) Open…I can watch golf at the crack of dawn (or whenever I wake up), with breakfast.
I predict that Marc will make at least 2 birdies before the week is out. He and I are playing Saturday morning at 6:30 (we couldn’t get the 5:30 tee time). He will make a bird….btw Marc, we are playing the blue tees! Tape the Open.
Golf lingo quiz: what does “buzz his tower” mean?
How about, “hockey sticks”?
Tiger hits it at 4:09 ET on Thursday…may not be up for that!
