WOW! What a championship!

Not only was it great to see this tournament live on my home course, but this turned out to be one of the most dramatic tournaments of the year. I gotta feel for John Daly, however. Us amateurs have all missed that short 3 footer for all the glory... just not $550,000 worth of glory. AND, props goes out to Tiger Woods (my pick, BTW :D), for pulling off the victory. His success with his driver, which was his nemesis last year, was the biggest reason for his victory.

Again, seeing the tournament live this week (i went thursday, saturday and sunday) was a real treat. The course was amazing and was getting huge props by the media and players. And the crowds were huge! I'm gonna try and get out next week and play the course.

We spent a lot of time on hole 7, the short par 4, watching player attempt to drive the green. The highlight, however, was Sergio's approach shot from about 110 yds. We were there watching it as the ball landed 3 feet passed the cup, and then spun back and went in the hole! The crowd went nuts.

And whats super cool, is if you watch the highlight, you can here me yell "Get In!" right before the ball lands.
