It took Pat Perez seven years to do it but he finally won on the PGA Tour. I’m sure Pat’s blog will have some great commentary, after the partying has ended. See 2:09 in the video below.
Yesterday’s final round at the Bob Hope was very entertaining and Perez ended it in style with an incredible 6-iron over water on the 18th, giving him an easy eagle putt which he drained to go -33. Yes -33.
Steve Stricker was looking at a victory until he had some problems with quadruple and triple bogeys. Mike Weir looked great but didn’t quite go low enough.
For winning Pat gets a measly $918K. Hey that’s $27,818.19 per stroke under par. At that rate I’d try to make some birdies myself…
Seve Ballesteros has now undergone his first round of chemotherapy and the results are “quite good.”
“Fortunately the results were quite good. This Friday I shall begin my second chemotherapy course, which I hope and wish will be as effective as the first one.
I am very motivated and working hard, although I am aware that my recovery will be slow and therefore I need to be patient and have a lot of determination. For these reasons I am following strictly all the indications that the doctors are giving me.”
I’m very happy to hear that Seve is progressing and getting better.
My pal Neil, The Armchair Golfer, just landed a big interview with the world’s #3 female golfer Paula Creamer. GO HERE NOW to read his interview.
No word from Armchair if he asked Paula why she never returns my calls….
The snow and frozen tundra of Salt Lake have me down. Therefore I’m staying an extra day after the PGA Show so I can play golf. I need a course to play in Orlando the day after the show ends, Sunday February 1st. That happens to be Superbowl Sunday.
My new friend The Orlando Golf Blogger and I (and whoever else is interested in playing) plan on engaging in a friendly on-course golf blogger competition. Then I’ll jump in my limo (a cab) and head to the airport to fly back to the damn snow.
Contact me if you have suggestions on a decent course near the convention center, or better yet, can get me a tee time with Arnie at Bay Hill on Sunday February 1st!
