Furky wins PGA Tour POY
Congratulations to Jim Furyk, winner of the PGA Tour player of the year. Well done. Bravo! Bravo! I predicted Jim would be the man a while back. Isn’t it great that you can make predictions, but only brag when they’re right?
Kuchar wins Vardon and Palmer awards
My friends at Bridgestone Golf must be very excited. Their man Matt Kuchar won the Vardon Trophy (for lowest scoring average on the PGA Tour) and also the Arnold Palmer Trophy (winning the most money at $4.1 million, on the PGA Tour).
Matt Kuchar must be feeling the mojo of having me stand three feet behind him at the Tuesday Masters practice round on #15. That’s why he played so well from that point on. He had HOG mojo. I’ll take the credit.
Speaking of awards, give the Byron Nelson to Freddie Couples
Speaking of awards, another notch in Bridgestone’s cap is credited for Fred Couples, who won the Byron Nelson award. That award is for the lowest scoring average on the Champions Tour. Freddie shattered the old scoring record of 68.58 by averaging an amazing 67.97. It must have been the shoes.
