Who will win The Open Championship?  Will it be another 1st timer, or will an accomplished veteran come out on top?  In the recent past, we have seen more players get their first Major championship then ones that will pad their total.  I like the ball strikers for Muirfield's layout.  The players without a Major already under their belt that come to mind are Sergio Garcia, Dustin Johnson, Hunter Mahan, Jason Day and Lee Westwood.  I believe that we will see some low scores out there for the next few days and one of these guys that putts the best will come away with the Claret Jug.

A special Congratulations to Jordan Spieth for his victory at the John Deer Classic. He is a Texas resident and former University of Texas product. Spieth holed a bunker shot to get into a playoff and then went on to win in extras, becoming only the 4th teenager to ever win on the PGA Tour! Good luck to Jordan this week at The Open.

I think caddies are an invaluable part of golf. They provide the knowledge and experience for the course as well as for the game. Obviously the better the caddie know you the more of a help they are. Now I have had my share of bad caddies that didn’t seem to know anything but the good ones far outweighed the bad.  The caddies I have had provided expert advice on distance, club selection and even a pointer or two when I am having a bad day. They have that third person sense that can see things that we don’t or at least don’t think about at the time. I have played without a caddie but it just seems to make the game that much more enjoyable when I do have one. Incidentally 99% of the caddies where I play are women! What your opinion?

This past week was the 2nd annual Student Athlete Foundation Tournament. The event was a great success! A special thank you to the Wood and Olson Golf Performance Academy, Pecan Grove Plantation and all that had a hand in putting on such a top notch Pro-AM. There was an uncountable amount of sponsors, great prizes and memorabilia to benefit charity. The tournament is extremely valuable for young adults that are looking to go to college and play sports on scholarship. As a previous college scholarship recipient, I can tell you that it is very vital to a lot of kids staying in school. This kind of event affords kids to receive two great educations that will last a lifetime. The event was great and it was for a good cause, I look forward to being involved again next year.
