Open Doors for the Open, June 2014
While Kaymer and Speith and Segio fight out the Players Championship today, we want to highlight our Christian Tour Players who might have an outside chance of taking the trophy this afternoon.
Stewart Cink and Bubba stand at -5 after Stewart shot his third straight 70 and Bubba stands in the best position on the final day that he has ever had before at the TPC. These fellas have the best chance to move up the leaderboard and take the title, but, it will take a herculean effort as they are seven shots behind the leaders.
Thanks for visiting.... join us....
Open Doors for the Open, June 2014
The Players Championship; some call it a 5th Major and it sure seems that way.
We see it as another precursor to the U.S., Open @ Pinehurst in June because that happens to be our main focus, but, PGA Tour golf, as we're sure it does for you, keeps the blood warm when the best players in the world (minus 1) are in the hunt in a "major".
The story lines are great, Martin Kaymer, the German superstar, ala Bernhard Langer, holds a slim lead on the young phenom, Jordan Spieth who gave Bubba a run for his money at the Masters before the back nine where "Super-Bubba" emerged and "killed it" comin' down the stretch for his second green jacket.
Russel Henley, the somewhat older youngster is in third, 4 shots back of Kaymer and a bevy of major winners and incredible players are in the hunt, including Furyk and Westwood at -6, six shots back, Justin Rose and Garcia in the same position with Bill Haas, former FEDEX Champion at -5.
Our focus is always on the regulars to the Tour Bible Study, so, Zach Johnson and Stewart Cink are at -4, Justin Leonard at -3 (after an incredible "slam dunk" eagle (see the video) and 2-time Masters Champion, Bubba Watson at -3 as well, Matt Kuchar at -2 and Ricky Fowler at -1.
Notables that missed the cut include Phil Mickelson, Keegan Bradley and one of our other favorites, Kevin Streelman who went from a 3 under 69 on Thursday to a 7 over par 79 on Friday (yuck).
Again, the 5th Major is well on it's way. It may not have the drama of the Masters or the Open, but, those of us who have a passion for the game will be riveted to our TV's if the wife allows it and we'll be cheering for our favorites as the sun sets on The Players on Sunday afternoon.
