US Open 2016

So, here we are writing another blog post about the game of golf and one of the US’s most prestigious golf tournaments. The US Open Championship. This is a very special golf tournament each year because not only is it a major, but anyone can enter and it gives the amateur golfers a chance to hit the links with the pros to even out the field.

This 2016 US Open started off with a lot of players in the field who were the unknowns and hadn’t yet competed in a major golf tournament. That in itself makes the play interesting because you are seeing players with no following keeping up and hanging with the major players of the current times. A lot was focused on Dustin Johnson since he had came so close in several of the previous years and just last year was runner up or second place because he missed a crucial putt on the 18th hole and let Jordan Spieth come in to scoop up the win which my buddy at Roswell Roofing Company loved seeing..

It was a four man scramble against 20 or so other teams out of the course in an eighteen hole battle. One of our friends that owns Carpet Cleaning Gwinnett was there as well, albeit on a different team. An argument could be made that it was a challenge Continue reading Amateur Golf Tournament

Welcome to a new website blog that i am doing in an effort to explain the game of golf to the average person. First off, golf is one of those games that people either totally love, or could care less and hate it. When I watch golf on TV, my wife (she is starting to come around) and some friends could care less and would rather watch a show about knitting blankets instead of a round of golf featuring the best players in the world on tv.  Not me, I can watch all day! I think it is hard to relate to golf unless you actually play the game and come to appreciate it for how difficult it actually is.

So, now that we got that out of the way, here are a few other reasons that people either love or hate it. My buddy over at Roswell Towing┬ácan’t stand golf for example, and would Continue reading Welcome to my new blog about Golf
