Tony Finau with Bud Cauley in the background – 2011 Web.com Utah Championship

The Web.com Tour Qualifying Tournament finished today.  Six grueling rounds of high pressure golf at PGA West Stadium Course to see who gets their 2014 tour cards for the Web.com.

I’m happy to report that a local named Tony (not me unfortunately) finished T3 and has earned an exemption, good until the third reshuffle of the 2014 season, which occurs after 12th event.  You may recognize Tony Finau from an appearance on Golf Channel’s Big Break Disney or a couple of Tour events.

This is a huge deal for him.  It will be fun to see how Tony does.  Looking forward to watching his (hopeful) progression onto the PGA Tour.

This is sure to be all over the web, everywhere, but I had to post it anyway because it’s so damn funny.  I’ve had the pleasure of hanging out with golf legend Chi Chi Rodriguez on many occasion.  He’s such a cool cat, full of so many stories.

During an appearance in Puerto Rico (his home) on Golf Channel’s Big Break NFL, Chi Chi’s attempt at the “break the glass” gig went terribly wrong.

An instant classic.


Post 3000 – Big Break’s Blair O’Neal Interview

I’m so ahead of the times…  Wait a minute.  Hey this is golf blog post 3000!!!  I’ll have to toot my horn on that after this post, which will be post 3001.

Back in 2008 I had the pleasure of interviewing Big Break’s Blair Alana O’Neal, a.k.a. beautiful golf babe.  Blair is once again competing on Big Break and is vying for 1st place in the final episode of the Dominican Republic series which airs on The Golf Channel TONIGHT.  I’ll be at band practice but my DVR is on the gig and I’ll be watching it later.

Too bad for Blair that I’m married now.  I’m sure she’s feeling a bit sore that she didn’t take me when she had the opportunity.  🙂


Brian is “going home” from Big Break PEI. I guess he wanted to.

Brian Big Break PEII haven’t chimed in on the latest Big Break lately. Big Break PEI (Prince Edward Island) has been on the low side of entertaining. Despite having my friend and mega hot golf babe Blair O’Neal on the show, I have yet to see any of the trademark Golf Channel “super slow-mo hot golf babe up skirt” shots. Come on guys. Get with the program.

About the only really entertaining part of this show is this Brian guy. He’s constantly saying how he can hit the ball farther than all the other players “if he wanted to” and how he could beat the pants of off everyone “if he wanted to.” If this show were a smack talking contest he’d be the hands down champ. I really think the strongest part of his game, and perhaps the only part, is his positive attitude.

Unfortunately for Brian, and for the entertainment value of this program, Brian couldn’t “positive think” himself out of elimination. He’s gone. I wonder why he had such skill to use in his arsenal of talent “if he wanted to” but chose never to use it. I guess he just didn’t want to.
