Steven Ames to blow away the field at the TPC

“Which course is Ames playing?”

As I start this post I’m watching the TPC on my DVR. DVR’s are the single best invention ever for watching golf on TV.

Steven Ames is just about to tee off on #17. Normally I’d wait until the round is completed to write a post about this but Ames has such a huge lead he’d have to start throwing clubs into the water to run the risk of giving away the lead.

Ames is in THE ZONE. He’s making the rest of the field today at the TPC look like a bunch of hacks: Singh 77, Garcia 78, Weir 79…..Beem 85!

It’s almost official… Ames will be collecting a phat check of $1.4 million, a 5 year PGA Tour exeption, 2006 PGA invite, 2006 British invite and gets into The Masters for the next 3 years. Well done.

17 17 17

#17 had 57 balls in the water over the last 4 days. This hole is short and these are the best players in the world. Once again, it shows that it doesn’t take 492 yard par 4’s to make golf exciting.
