Hendren's Hyperbole! Episode 29 -- Americans Represent!
Is this blog on? Testing one, testing one, two, three! HELLO?!
Wow! No response to my last post on Flogton? Not one comment? Really? I guess that is what I get when I try to compete with Women’s soccer. Women’s soccer is apparently all the rage? It’s not my deal but who am I to say what sucks and what doesn’t? I guess my blog entries suck because I CAN’T EVEN GET ONE COMMENT ON SOMETHING AS RIDCULOUS AS FLOGTON!
All joking aside I know all too well how this time of year is not the best to spend time in your office reading blogs! Don’t worry; fall is right around the corner!
Congratulations to Putt For Dough for winning the inaugural edition of the British Open Golfdom Hackoff! Coming in second, by just two points, was L-Town Fun Police and Turfdoug finished in third. Make sure to send Mr. Jones (firstname.lastname@example.org) your contact info so he can get you your awesome prizes!
Congrats to Darren Clarke for winning the 140th Open Championship at Royal St. George’s. Clarke won by three strokes with a final score of five under. I’ll be honest, I don’t know that much about Darren but anyone who is at the presser for his first major win, brings a pint of Guinness with him, and tells the media to excuse him while he takes a drink, is OK in my book.
I'm not trying to take anything away from Mr. Clarke but in my opinion it wasn’t Clarke’s victory that was the most exciting part of the weekend. For my money the best part was that Anthony Kim, Rickie Fowler and Chad Campbell all tied for fifth with a score of even par for the tournament and Dustin Johnson tied for second with Phillyum. We need the young American golfers, the next “big things,” to show up week-in and week-out, especially at Major Tournaments if we want to grow golf in America into the super sport we all know it is!
I almost forgot to mention that Tiger’s World Golf Ranking has now dropped to 20th! Keep it up Tiger, keep snapping that left knee at impact and before you know it you will be 40 and dropped out of the top 100. It’s just a matter of time and I will be here enjoying every minute!
If you have time, scroll down just a bit and read last week’s post on Flogton. I promise you will not be disappointed!
