Scott Cock Blocked By Cullen
I’m guessing Adam Scott has never actually been cock blocked. In news from the other side of the planet, some guy named Nick Cullen that is ranked in the 600 range of golf’s world rankings held off Adam Scott from winning his 3rd straight Australian Masters. As most of the field gave ground to par for they day, Cullen’s steadiness resulted in a 69 that provided a 1 shot victory over Scott. Adam trailed the leaders in Oz throughout the entire tournament thanks to a 1st round 73, but he never gave up in his effort to defend his title. His grind back to the top made him the clubhouse leader when he walked off the 18th hole.
Scott prepped himself mentally for a playoff after he signed his card. With Cullen facing a long bunker shot, I had these two pegged to go back to 18 to play to the death. Instead, Cullen hit the shot of his life to lock up his home country’s Masters. Highlights of the final round follow, but you can see Cullen’s bunker shot at the 1:27 mark below.
Congrats on your break through Mr. Cullen. Better luck next time Scotty.
Tiger Picked Who?
We’ve all waited about 3 months to see Tiger Woods tee it up again at his tournament next week in Orlando. On top of that, we’ve waited to see who he picks as his next swing coach. Wait no more. The big cat announced via Twitter yesterday that he’d selected Chris Como to work with. Who? Chris is a top 100 teacher from southern California now based in Dallas. He’s worked with Jamie Lovemark and Aaron Baddely in the past. None of his pupils have an ounce of accuracy off the tee. Seems like a match made in heaven.
Nothing is more dull that a Tiger tweet. What is omitted here is that this was likely a suggestion taken from old pal Notah Begay. Good call, TW. I listen to my recovering alcoholic friends for all my advice too. How this ends is anybody’s guess.
As you can see, the interwebs are already enjoying this newly formed bromance.
I’ll be curious to see what TW’s swing looks like next week. I can’t imagine it will have changed dramatically yet from what it looked like in August. Oh, and speaking of TW, don’t forget this announcement falls within hours of the five year anniversary of his run in with
Elin’s 9 iron a fire hydrant.
Lydia Ko won the biggest prize in women’s golf today at the CME Group Tour Championship. Ko, still 17, survived a playoff with Carlota Ciganda and Julieta Granada to capture the tournament and the cash bonus for accumulated points. Ciganda screwed the pooch with her chance to win on the 3rd playoff hole when her five foot birdie attempt missed the hole. Granada never made it past the 2nd hole. She’s never won in nearly 200 starts and let the nerves of the moment get to her by making bogey on the 2nd playoff hole.
Ciganda made it easy on Ko by hitting her tee ball in the hazard and making bogey on the last hole. Ko’s easy 2 putts for par from 30 feet sealed her victory. Now, what the fuck does a 17 year old chick do with 1.5 million dollars? There, I’ve acknowledged the LPGA and another great tournament finish it had. Let’s move on.
Jamie Donaldson Is Knee Deep In Pussy
Cat, that is. In the weird news of the weekend, Jamie Donaldson saved a cat. Donaldson finished his 3rd round at the DP Championship in Dubai and spotted a cat stuck on the roof of a nearby building. What did he do? The fucker climbed up and got it and brought it to safety.
Does he have to keep it? If he’d won the tournament I bet he would have. First Donaldson clinches the Ryder Cup. Now he’s saving felines. What will this super hero do next?
