Welcome to a special Hendren’s Hyperbole being written from #18 at Congressional!
...Alright, I am really in Kansas City just wishing I was going to be witnessing my favorite tournament of the year in person (I hate you Jones!!!). A guy can dream, can’t he?
This weekend is THE U.S. OPEN! The only thing that could make this weekend better is if Tiger was playing but as we all know…he is not, unfortunately. Actually I am not how sure unfortunate it really is. Sure, I love a good meltdown, a few swear words, and some good old fashioned club throwing... but just for one week I would like the emphasis to be on anything other than El’ Tigre.
Maybe this will be Phil’s year? How about Dustin Johnson or Rory McElroy? Probably none of the above, but I wouldn’t mind if it was any of them. Any golf tournament is next to impossible to predict a winner but the OPEN has to be the most difficult.
Speaking of predicting a winner, it is time for the Golfdom Hackoff, U.S.Open edition. To sign up just follow the directions below.
The Hackoff is going to be at http://golf.fantasysports.yahoo.com/golf just like in the past. Click on "Sign up now!" for "Tee it Up!" fantasy golf (it's the only fantasy golf game they have.) Once you create your team, click "join a group." The group ID is 17466 and the group name is The Great Golfdom Hackoff (Yes I know 'hackoff' is spelled hack-off but I was limited in spaces to enter a name and I had to have the name be The Great Golfdom Hackoff!)
You will need a password to join the group. The password is golfdom123.
If you have signed up in the past just sign in and make your picks for this weekend. If not, what are you waiting for? You could win a number of great prizes, from gift cards to U.S. Open merchandise to Rain Bird and SubAir golf gear! All you have to do is sign up for your chance to win some great prizes and go down in history as the first U.S.Open edition Hackoff Champion!
I hope to read your trash talking best on the leagues message board.
Until next week!
