Pretty outrageous, no rides on 95 South or 80 West to get stuck in traffic while Doc yelled at the construction crews. Just a few plane rides, the boys can use that good travel gear that Keegan got for them.
Some of the guys have been and will be traveling to warmer climates in the last week and for the next few to play in some amateur stuff.
This could be our last year tying to win the Big East Conference (we have 9 Golf Championships). Who knows what is going on in the football driven conference world. Maybe the original Catholic Schools that are leaving will have the balls to fight for the name. They should.
2013 on the PGA Tour we will have 2 players representing, Keegan Bradley who now has a World Golf Championship along w/ a PGA Championship will be joined by Andrew Svoboda a former Big East Champ, Met Open and Met Am Champ as well. Andrew finished 21st on the Web.com tour money list and recieved his PGA Tour card for 2013. Andrew needs a good start because with all the changes in the Q school and entry to the tour this years rookies will not get as many starts as rookies of the past have. I played w/ Andrew a few weeks ago and he looks ready, excellent long game and rolls the rock beautifully.
That’s it for now, happy New Year! Start planning your trip to warm weather to keep sane in the cold, the basketball Johnnies might not do the trick in that department.
