Recommended Posts

Meanwhile back in the states today, more golf was being played on the PGA Tour as the rain delayed Barbasol Championship wrapped up.   Troy Merritt took the win with an impressive 23 under par.  Birides were a lot more plentiful in Kentucky than Carnoustie. 

 

Note this was only Merritt's second round with the Raw V6's.

Congrats to Troy!  You could see the emotions in him when they interviewed him after the win.  He had to go back and qualify for the PGA Tour in the web.com finals last year, so you probably won't see a more humble and appreciative winner on Tour this year.  Such a big deal to a guy who has struggled mightily for awhile.

A win I was really really happy to see.  He got his first and only other tour win here in the DC area 3 years ago at the Quicken Loans Invitational, known locally as "Tiger's Tournament"  he went really low that weekend as well at -18 on a very tough Robert Trent Jones Course, that hosted the first several Presidents Cups back in the mid to late 90's.    He had some big names in the field as well,  Tiger, Rickie, Justin Thomas and Bill Hass.

 

He genuinely seems like such a nice guy.

Currently testing Edison wedges to replace SCORS that are wearing out. Also auditions for the 14th spot in the bag.  Current possibilities are a Ping 26 degree hybrid - duplicates the 9 wood or 5 iron but would be used almost exclusively for chipping or Tour Exotics 3 wood simply because you can carry 14 clubs and I might occasionally hit it in certain unusual wind conditions once every four or five rounds.

Nice to see that D300 getting some work. Wilson clearly can hold its own.

Great win for Troy, Wilson Staff, and Boise State.  Love my D300 FW and hybrids; thinking about picking up the driver.

GO BRONCOS! Great win for Troy! Lots of talk about him around here! I hope he does well enough in the FedEx cup to qualify for the Masters...we'll see
