Quote of the day
"If I'm able to win the US Open and complete the career Grand Slam, I think that that's the sign of the complete great player. ... I'm a leg away. And it's been a tough leg for me." -- Phil Mickelson, after winning the British Open. He now needs only to win the U.S. Open (where he has been runner-up six times) to complete the career Grand Slam.
I was on a long-weekend vacation in Maine, so I heard Phil Mickelson’s British Open win on ESPN Radio. Trust me, golf was not made for radio. But Phil was evidently made for golf.
Congrats to the British Open prize winners in Gurugolf:
Duffers #1 (best ball, -37, with consistent team rounds of -10, -9, -9, -9)
Putt for Dough (worst ball, +66, with consistent team rounds of +18, +14, +16, +18)
We also had a rare “Perfect High”, which is a worst ball round with every hole showing a bogey or worse: Close Talker (round #1 – 15 bogeys, one double, two triples). It’s been several years since we had one of those.
The next GuruGolf contest is the “Dog Days Contest”, encompassing the tournaments from the RBC Canadian Open through the Wyndham Championship (four weeks).
