My buddy John Duval from Into The Grain has a nice post up today called “10 Club Companies That Fly Under The Radar.” I’d stop by and give it a read.
John mentions a few which I haven’t even heard of, and I consider myself moderately connected to the golf club makers.
We had some insane weather here today. Mega winds this morning, then rain, then snow. Then the sun came out for a few. Minutes later the wind came back and it was snowing sideways.
The poor barbie...
I looked in the back yard to find the barbie had blown over. “A one barbeque wind.”
At the end of the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill I was waiting to see Arnold Palmer greet Tiger Woods as he came off the final green. That’s been a tradition, greeting the winner on the final green, for many years. But this time, there was no Arnold on the 18th.
Later it was announced in the press room that Arnold was taken to a nearby hospital due to high blood pressure. Apparently he was on some new medications which weren’t working well, causing the jump.
“Nobody is overly concerned about his prognosis. It wasn’t anything to do with any ailments or any discomfort he felt. The blood pressure was at a level where the doctor involved suggested that he go immediately to get more intensive evaluation at the hospital.” ~ Arnold Palmer’s business manager, Alastair Johnston
Arnold (82) is doing fine, and they expect him to only have one overnight stay before leaving the hospital. He needs to be well for the opening ceremony of the Masters in about 1.5 weeks!
Get well Arnie. We need you to open up the Masters!
Sending my best wishes to you Arnie… I know you are a regular reader here. Ahem. 🙂
DVR Alert! Tiger Woods has a one shot lead coming into today (Saturday) at the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill. Can Tiger do what he hasn’t been able to do since his comeback, finish a tournament? I’m excluding last year’s Chevron for those critics out there.
