Played like dog today and put up an 87 at Quail Chase….dont tell anyone. A guy in my group threw up a 70 today, marking his best round ever as a golfer. Last time I played Bobby Perry shot 78 from the tips at Valhalla and proclaimed it the “best I have ever played.” The lesson here….if you want to play better than you ever have in your life, play in a group against me for money. Couple of things….
— The Jules story is absurd. Saw the police and made a turn at 45 mph into a hotel parking lot? And then allegedly poured a Rum and Coke into his floorboard….good gosh Jules. As those of you have been around here may know, I have a history with Jules (have to be a REALLY old school podcast guy to know that story) that is one of my better stories of college life. I nevertheless like Jules and pull for him….but he does some ridiculous things.
— UK is trying to get Matthew Pilgrim eligible for this year by petitioning the NCAA on a “hardship” claim. No idea what the claim is or whether it will be successful, but we shall see. I saw Marc Maggard compared Pilgrim to Jamal Mashburn on a thread on TCP….someone got into the Fourth of July drinks a little soon. 😉
— I really like Jon Hood….a lot. Talked to a former UK player yesterday about him and he recently saw him play saying, “he is exactly what UK needs….good shooter, can score and plays smart. I think he will be a UK star.” I agree FWIW.
— The “faceless” people at Wimbledon creep me out….but I am fascinated by them.
The weekend now officially begins and I am ready. There will still be posts on here for those of you looking and I head off Sunday to the Lebron James Academy. Have a great Fourth….
