Crashing to Earth Before the PGA Texas Open


Even Protesters Subject to the Hazards

Social movements have many of the hobbies that we enjoy in their sites.  One of the odder ones is those that wish to protest people who use land for golf courses.  In a scene akin to a bad movie, two such do good’ers decided to live in a tree to stay the development of a course in New Orleans.  Now the ending of the story came to an abrupt crash as one of the duo fell out of his hammock and met Mother Earth rather harshly.  Injuries to his foot, leg, and nose caused him to end his eleven day vigil.  At least he made it farther than an unnamed female who quit after only four evenings.

Great State of Texas

Two weeks til Augusta sees the tour at the Texas Open this week.  The two fields coming up to the major will not have full fields as the top players have their own regimens to seek the elusive green jacket.  Here are some of the favorites.

  • Jordan Spieth
  • Dustin Johnson
  • Jim Furyk
  • Jimmy Walker
  • Matt Kuchar
  • Martin Kaymer

We Like the Undercard

Two people with less star value are on our radar scopes.  One is a former champion in Brandon Steele.  He has two top fifteens and a near miss at the Humana.  The other is state bred Shawn Stefani.  A model of consistency and raised near here in San Antonio.  Driving has never been in question put putting has.  A raise in his game sees him 5th in strokes gained by the putter.  Pound these two for individual matchups against almost everyone.

Finally here is our first round card.

  • Harris English -109 over Kevin Na
  • Steele -126 over Todd
  • Laird +103 Over Hoffman
  • Steffani -130 over MacKenzie
