The Never-Ending Tournament

The Barbasol Championship was so much fun, they decided to play another day.  After a rainy Sunday, fourth round play resumed this morning at 7:30 a.m.  Today admission is free for fans, with parking available at Southland Christian Church.

If you can’t make it to Keene Trace, you’ll find all of the action on the Golf Channel, beginning at 10:00 a.m.  It should be an exciting finish.  Seven players are tied for the lead at 19-under, and a dozen others are within striking range three shots back, including Central Kentucky’s Josh Teater.

Thanks, Tiger

Tiger Woods’ Sunday reds returned to a Major Championship in dramatic fashion.  For a few hours, he was at the top of the Carnoustie leaderboard, sinking birdies and refusing to lay up.

Unfortunately, it was not meant to be.  He followed up a double-bogey on ten with a bogey on 11 to put effectively put him out of contention.  Woods finished three shots behind the Italian Stallion, Francesco Molinari, Italy’s first Major Champion.

Even though Tiger didn’t get his first Major win in a decade, it was wonderful to see him go down to the wire with a dozen of the world’s bests.  We can put all the blame on the jerk who screamed in his backswing.

Stoops on the Hot Seat?

That’s what CBS Sports believes.  Kentucky has consecutive seven-win regular seasons for just the second time since 1977, but in the latest edition of CBS’ Hot Seat Rankings, Stoops is in the second-hottest category, “Start Improving Now.”  With the most returning talent and experience of his Kentucky tenure, there’s plenty of pressure on Stoops, but is his seat hot?  I don’t think so.

E.J. Price is Preparing for an SEC Championship

Kentucky has never played in the SEC Championship Game and E.J. Price has yet to play a snap for the University of Kentucky, but that isn’t slowing down the former USC offensive lineman.  While making a pitstop in Atlanta, he let the world know that Kentucky will be there to represent the SEC East at the end of the 2018 regular season.

I appreciate the confidence.  Even though Kentucky probably won’t win the SEC East, the first step to accomplishing that goal is believing it can happen.  However, the message carries a little more credibility when it’s coming from a guy like C.J. Conrad, instead of somebody who is still waiting to make their UK debut.
