Anyone have Calc on their fantasy team today? Mark Calcavecchia birdied holes 3-11 today in the Canadian Open. That is a new PGA Tour record and also insanely good.
My personal record is five in a row. I remember vividly… (Sound of harps, dream state ensues)…. I was playing straight up, nine holes against the #1 amateur in the state. Yes that isn’t generally a good idea. Under normal conditions he’d crush me. But I birdied the first five holes, en route to a one up victory after nine. Yes, one up. He ran out of holes. Needless to say, he was not happy. I was.
Mark Calcavecchia also has another awesome scoring record (and also achieved in his “older” years on Tour)…he is the holder of: “PGA Tour Scoring Record – Most Strokes Under Par over 72 Holes,” 2001 Phoenix Open, 256, par-71. That’s 28 under par for all you non-Calc, ham ‘n eggers out there. The record was achieved at a 4 day Tour event (vs a 5 day event a la Bob Hope Classic). That ain’t too freaking shabby for an old and tubby dude like Calc.
