A Couple of Things – Spain, Charlottesville, Justin Thomas

I know that I haven’t posted in awhile.

I had the opportunity to visit the Normandy Memorial. Over 9,300 Americans are buried here.  It spoke of sacrifice, honor and courage.

The attack on Barcelona, Spain is so cowardly it makes you want to cry out with anger. To take a car and plow it into a crowd deserves a special level of Dante’s Place.

Justin Thomas played wonderfully to win the PGA Championship. Sometimes we stress winning way too much. Justin has been playing really good golf for more than 18 months. It was only earlier this year that he started winning and winning often.  He was brilliant on the back 9 on Sunday.  Congratulations Justin! (Let me say a few words about Quail Hallow. It sucked. I’m not a fan of ridiculously fast greens.  I’m sorry I don’t that if you breath on a golf ball and it wobbles for 20 feet down a slope that it slow slippery that ants put out a don’t cross sign, that’s crazy. I know purists say, ” all you have to do is stay below the hole.” I blow those idealists a raspberry. I want to see the best in the world roll the rock from anywhere on the green. I think they took at really good golf course and made it worse. )
