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.
Jim Furyk has methodically ground his way to a victory at East Lake Golf Club to win the FedEx Cup and a cool $10,000,000. It came down to a sensational up-and-down on the 18th from the right greenside bunker for par, in a pouring rain to win it. Furyk was 9-9 in sand saves.
Many congratulations to my new BFF Jim Furyk. Hey Jim, since we’re such good buddies do you have a few extra bucks you can loan me?
I was going to write some golf blog posts today, but I slept in…
I like Jim Furyk. He’s a gritty player (#3 in the world) and seems like a nice cat. Apparently he made a little boo boo this week though. He uses his cell phone for his alarm in the morning, but his battery died. He missed his Wednesday morning pro-am tee time at the Barclays by five minutes. That made him NE (not eligible) for the tournament.
I did some quick math. Furyk has made $3,308,872 in 18 tournaments this year. That averages $183,826.22 per tournament. So he arguably missed out on $183,826.22 based on those numbers.
I can’t imagine being in a situation where I’d lose $183,826.22 if I slept in. The worst it is for me when I sleep in is that my automatic coffee has already shut off and I have cold coffee in the morning.
Today is both Mike Weir’s and Jim Furyk’s 40th birthday. To celebrate this event, I went golfing today. Thanks guys.
