I’ll be live on “Golf Talk Radio with Mike and Billy” on ESPN 1280 The Ticket this morning at 8:45 am Pacific Time discussing the HP Byron Nelson Championship.
I’ve known Mike and Billy for a few years now as a result of friending them on my golf social networking web site The Golf Space. Looking forward to chatting about the Byron!

Sergio Garcia and Ryan Palmer are atop the leaderboard here at the HP Byron Nelson Championship at -8, a three shot lead over Tim Petrovic and Scott Piercy.
Ryan Palmer’s ball striking is putting him in close proximity to the hole, where he has been performing very well. His short game has been excellent when he does miss greens and he hasn’t had to many long putts or putts from the incorrect quadrants.
Sergio Garcia is striking the ball well as usual, but his putting is as good as I’ve seen it. He made some clutch par putts and sand saves in windy conditions yesterday as well as chipping in from 45 feet on the 15th green for birdie.

That last two nights I’ve been in the press room until the wee hours. But tonight I don’t have time this moment to write my daily comments about the action. I’ve got an appointment with some Golf Space and HOG followers with some BBQ and frosty beverages. Show me some of that Texas BBQ.
So I’ll quickly post a shot which tells the story for Sergio Garcia today, short game.

Sergio got up and down from the sand on 14, 16 and 18 and I was right there to witness all the shots. 14 was impressive. Sergio also putted as well as I’ve ever seen him putt.
If I’m still conscious after the BBQ and frosty beverages, I’ll chime in on the day’s play and upload a zillion photos.

I’m now perched in my office on #16 green at the HP Byron Nelson.
I’m watching players fighting some wind today. Yesterday many players were able to reach this par-5 in two, but today is a different story.
I stopped by the big stage here at the Byron Nelson last night on my way to get some local Tex-Mex food. “Professor D” was performing in front of a nice crowd of patrons. There was some great talent not only on stage, but in the audience if you know what I mean. There’s a big grass area in front of the stage with tables, and around are vendors with food and frosty beverages. Fun times.
Lots of members in this bad. Hate to be around when they split up the dough...
Tonight Jack Ingram (country) will be on stage and tomorrow night will be “Le Freak.”
If you have Tickets to the tournament, they’re good to get you into the concerts.
