The Bear Trap

March 8, 2010

Yet Again the Bear trap has claimed many victims this Honda Classic. If you didn’t see any of the blunders let me give you some examples. Vijay Singh hit the ball in the water at 15, 3 putted 16, and 3 putted 17. He finished with a bogey on every hole of the bear trap in the final round. Nathan Green hit the ball in the water on 17 but decided that it was still playable. It took him 3 shots to get out of the water and made a triple bogey. There were around 400 balls in the water and the three holes all played over par.


My prediction for Phil’s 2010

March 6, 2010

Phil Mickelson had high expectations coming into the 2010 season because he had finished so strongly in 2009 wining 2 tournaments out of his last 3. I think he will live up to the hype. I think he will win 2 majors, The Masters and U.S. open. Yes, the U.S. open. The tournament he has finished 2nd in 5 times but has never won. It is being held in Pebble Beech,California. California is Lefty’s home state so I think he will perform well there. By the end of the year he will have won 2 majors, the FedEx cup, 1 FedEx cup playoff event, 1 WGC(world golf championship) event, 4 regular PGA tour events, and will have taken over the spot as #1 in the world. He has high expectations but I think he will answer the call.
