Birthday wishes to LPGA golf babe Natalie Gulbis.

I really need to add the “golf babe” category one of these days.  I think it would be a big boost to traffic.


The Byrd is the word at Kapalua after round one

It was nice to finally watch the PGA Tour yesterday at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions.

Kapalua was playing fairly easy with soft receptive greens due to rainy conditions. The wet conditions did make some approaches a little longer.

Johnathan Byrd (#1 in greens in regulation) sits atop the leaderboard at -7 (66, par-73) with Carl Pettersson.

Shot Of The Day – Bubba Watson

On the long par-5 18th hole, Bubba Watson was over 300 yards out for his 2nd shot after hitting a 349 yard drive. 18 curves severely right to left. Bubba hit driver off the deck and intentionally carved a banana ball right with the curvature of the hole. It hit about 50 yards short of the green, rolled onto the surface to about 15 feet. Amazing shot. Bubba capped it off with his first eagle of the year by making the putt.

T1 J. Byrd -7

Tiger Loses Another Endorsement Deal

Due to their inability to settle on a new contract, Tiger Woods will no longer be providing articles for Golf Digest after 13 years.   That contract was his 2nd longest endorsement deal behind Nike, beginning in 1997.

I’m not a big magazine reader and I can honestly say I’ve never read one of these articles.

Camilo Villegas

Villegas is now a TaylorMade player

This was a sticky issue back in August 2010 when word got out that Camilo Villegas was switching from Cobra/Titleist to Taylormade.  Camilo’s contract wasn’t up yet, and such announcements are not supposed to happen while the player is still under contract.

I’m not up to speed on the status of a law suit between Cobra and TaylorMade, but the word today is that this deal is now done.   Camilo Villegas is officially a TaylorMade tour staff player.
