Really cool and unexplainable why quote from the N.Y. Times:
George Coetzee has lost his head at the U.S. Open.
The one on his driver.
The South African was teeing off on the long par-4 11th at Chambers Bay on Sunday when the head of his driver followed his ball right down the fairway. Coetzee was left to look quizzically at the shaft in his hands, wondering just what happened.
His playing partner, Jim Furyk, walked ahead and kindly picked the head off the turf and handed it to Coetzee, who still seemed unsure of how everything had come apart.
Since the club was damaged in the normal course of play, he was allowed to replace it.”
From the pictures this course looks like Scotland… or Mars. Fun. I did like trees before my Arthur Itis seized me joints up enough to make golf grief stricken. But when we see the sport at its roots, UK Land, it just seems right to not need L.A. style foliage. L.A. may look like this soon unless Al Gore comes to the rescue and changes the weather. We all know he can do it…. so baby get to it.
BTW, we are watching The Natural, a baseball movie with Robert Redford. He hits the ball so hard the cover comes off. Life is good. An old man making the youngsters’ jaws drop.
