Quote of the day
"I wanted it to be more in. Didn't get in enough. It wasn't really a mistake, just good hitting." -- Yankees closer Mariano Rivera, after Adam Jones hit a 2-run homer in the 9th inning to beat Rivera and the Yankees 2-1
Kudos to Blue Lagoon, who posted the top best ball score (47) in GuruGolf this weekend. Worst ball honors were shared by two teams (+42). Interestingly, no team had the tournament winner, Jonas Blixt. Thatís not unprecedented, but it is unusual.
Itís rather amazing that the tournament was able to finish on Sunday, as the last group didnít tee off until 5:10pm, finishing around 9pm. Obviously, they were motivated to get it in, as the local sunset was at 8:45pm.
By winning, Blixt reportedly played his way into the British Open, moving up to around 50th in the Official World Golf Rankings, which should put him atop the list of alternates. Heís also listed in the field for this weekís John Deere Classic Ė so I suspect his absence from GuruGolf play is about to end.
