News Roundup – Keegan Bradley, Dallas Cowboys, Alan Grayson

The PGA Tour Championship ends today at the beautiful East Lake Country Club. Henrik Stenson, unless he collapses, should be able to win the championship and take home the grand prize of $10,000,000. Yet, I really love Keegan Bradley’s Eagle from the fairway. He simply nails the shot then gets down on the ground and imitates Jason Dufner, a move known as Dufnering. Great shot. Funny response. Anyone who follows this blog knows that I am a big fan of Tiger Woods. Over the last four days we’ve seen both the greatness and the mystery of Tiger Woods. On Thursday, he played beautifully but simply couldn’t make a putt. On Friday, he had one of the most remarkable rounds I’ve seen in a while. He played clinical golf to be five under par through 13. Then he pushed a tee shot on 14 way into the woods on the left. This led to a double bogey and his round collapsed as he went six over par in the last four holes.

I’ve been rubbing my eyes for the last hour and a half. I’m trying to decide what I saw in what was formerly known as Texas Stadium, or was that the Cowboys Stadium? I know that it is now known as AT&T Stadium (that simply just doesn’t sound right, yuck). The Dallas Cowboys did not beat the St. Louis Rams. They destroyed them. I thought this was going to be another extremely close and tight game. The Rams have a extremely strong defensive front and I thought they’d manhandle our offensive line. I had visions of Tony Romo running for his life, yet again. That simply didn’t happen. We actually ran the ball from the line of scrimmage. We actually dominated the line of scrimmage on both offense and defense. Tony Romo threw the ball like he was an All-Pro. It was an amazing performance all around. I’m still in shock.

U.S. Open

I don’t know about you, but I find it hard to watch the U.S. Open. It is just so hard.

Tons of balls in the rough. Impossible to advance the ball out of the rough more than 100-125 yards. The greens are ridiculously fast. Nearly impossible to put down hill. Everybody is stumbling. Surprisingly, Rickie Fowler posted a 67 yesterday. At the beginning of the week, I thought that Steve Stricker had a really good opportunity to win one. He is struggling today. Phil Mickelson was in the lead earlier and is now falling back. So far, the best round of the day – Jason Dufner. Who knows who’ll be able to keep themselves together, keep the ball on the fairway and be able to putt on these impossible greens? Who will come away with the victory?

Tiger

Elizabeth Taylor said that the way to determine whether someone is a star is to watch what they do. Tiger Woods is a star. The PGA is more watchable when Tiger is playing well.

Tiger Woods struck the ball very well today. More importantly, he was putting very well. He won his 72nd tournament at Jack Nicholas’ Memorial.

The US Open should be a great tournament. Matt Kuchar, Jason Dufner, Rickie Fowler (don’t count today) and Luke Donald are playing well. You can never count out Phil. The Open is going to be fun.

One of the reasons that Tiger Woods is so great to watch is that he comes up with those Tiger Moments. Sure, he can drain putts and crush the tee shot but he can also do something amazing like this shot.
