Matsuyama Wins the Greatest Game on Grass

The Phoenix Thunderbirds, sponsor of the¬†Waste Management Phoenix Open on the PGA Tour, call the tournament "the greatest game on grass" partly because of its amazing attendance records. This year they broke their previous record with over 618,000 people in attendance for four days of the tournament. And yesterday's 201,000+ attendance beat the previous one-day attendance set last year on Saturday by about 12,000 people. The no-clouds weather was perfect for both days with little wind and about … [Read more...]

Jordan Spieth Still Dominates

Twenty-two year old pro golf phenomenon Jordan Spieth won the Hyundai Tournament of Champions yesterday at Kapalua, Hawaai. He leapfrogged the stellar field of all of the PGA Tour tournament winners last year, winning by eight whopping strokes. He joined Tiger Woods as the only two players since WWII who have won seven PGA Tour tournaments by the age of twenty-two, yet two of those wins for Spieth were majors. Thus, the pro golf analysts are beginning to compare Jordan Spieth with Tiger Woods. … [Read more...]

Hal Lindsey and Rock’n Rollen Stewart

Hal LindseyHal Lindsey and I come from the same church in Houston, Texas. It is an independent Bible church called Berachah Church. (Berachah is the Hebrew word for "blessing.") In my first year in college, at eighteen years of age, I attended a Campus Crusade for Christ (CCC) retreat for college students. The pastor of my new church, Robert B. Thieme Jr., and Hal Lindsey were the two keynote speakers. (At that time, Lindsey was a traveling speaker for CCC.) When Lindsey spoke that first … [Read more...]

Emiliano Grillo Wins First PGA Tour Tournament

Well, 23-year old, Argentinian Emiliano Grillo defeated 32-year old, Korean-American Kevin Na on the second hole of a playoff today in the PGA Tour's FRYS.COM tournament on the North Course at Silverado Resort and Spa, Napa, California. They played the par-five eighteenth hole (575 yards) twice. On the first playoff hole, Grillo surprisingly missed a putt of just under two feet that would have given him the win. I watched it today on televsion because I won there 47 years ago, in 1968. (Wow, am … [Read more...]

Winning at Napa on both Tours

The PGA Tour is beginning its 2016 season this week with the FRYS.COM tournament in Napa, California. It's being held at the Silverado Resort and Spa, one of my favorite places in the world. (But it's not like I've been all over the world.) They have two golf courses there, and this tournament is on the North Course. We also used to play a Senior Tour tournament there on the South Course. Napa Valley is such a lovely place, especially this time of year, with rows and rows of vineyards bordered … [Read more...]

Jordan Spieth Is a Christian

In case you are a prepper who has been hanging out in the back country this year--maybe in some cave waiting for the apocalypse to happen so that you don't know what's been going on in the world as of late--the PGA Tour has a new superstar this year. He's 22-year old Jordan Spieth from Dallas, Texas, and he is refreshing. Whether or not he will take over Tiger Woods' previous domination of the world of professional golf remains to be seen. But so far this golfing phenom--who has such a blessed … [Read more...]

Pro Golf Is in Good, Young Hands

I was glad for Jason Day on Sunday when he won the PGA Championship by three strokes. It was his first time to win one of the four majors in international professional golf: the Masters in April, U.S. Open in June, British Open in July, and the U.S. PGA Championship in August. It surely capped off one of the most exciting years for the four majors in the history of professional golf.Jason Day is a dark and handsome, muscular yet slender, six-foot tall, 27 year-old Australian who now lives … [Read more...]
