Trying to play a course called Stonewater this weekend. Keep your fingers crossed for me. The theme of the year has been wet and I’m hoping to buck the trend. I think I’ve played like 4-6 rounds so far this year and only one of said rounds has been dry. I love Ohio and all, but this needs to change. Southern Ohio is all blooming and warm, but we’re still gray and gloomy in Northeast Ohio. Sweet.

Well it’s playoff time boys and girls. Get excited. The top 125 players are here to compete for a shot at the big bucks and a cool trophy. First up is the Barclays at the Ridgewood Country Club in Paramus, NJ. Here are the picks… (more…)

What you missed?  A helluva tournament, that’s what.

Kudos go out to Martin Kaymer and Bubba Watson for a nice showing on Sunday, as well as Dustin Johnson for putting the Pebble-esque choke on hold until the last hole, as well as guys like Zach Johnson, Rory McIlroy and Steve Elkington who provided some nice competition for the leaders.  I don’t want to get into Bunkergate, so we’ll hold off on that for the conceivable time being, and after some reflection, I’m not really bullish on Whistling Straits as I was heading into the championship.

Lets get to the winners and losers.

Winners:

PGA fans – Helluva tournament and a ton of drama and entertainment.  That was a fantastic treat in a year where only the Masters was truly entertaining. (more…)

Yes, Dustin Johnson handled his post interview with class.  I’m not classy, so I’ll take it from here…

FUCK YOU, PGA OF AMERICA.

How the fuck could you make such a total bullshit ruling at such a crucial juncture?  How the fuck can you look yourselves in the mirror and think that you made the right fucking call?  Are you fucking serious?  Did I gain an advantage?  No.

If that piece of dirt is a fucking bunker, then why the hell were people standing in it?  Why the fuck would you let that shit happen?  Fuck the rules of golf…I, Dustin Johnson, did not fucking cheat.

I’m going to hire a private detective to follow you around, Mark Wilson.  Every little thing in life you fuck up, I’m going to make sure is punished to the utmost.  If you don’t stop at a fucking stop sign for a full second, I’m gonna make sure you get a ticket.  If you got 5 MPH above the speed limit, I’m turning you in.  If your lawn is a half fucking inch above what it should be, I’m calling the authorities.

Because that’s what you deserve you pile of shit.  Oh, and thanks for having a rules official nearby.  Ooops.

Fuck you, PGA.  Fuck you indeed.

Now, excuse me, I have a bunker to rake.

A very hearty thank you to friend of TG, and a man of considerable influence, JayV for going through the effort of writing this comprehensive review.

I don’t envy Corey Pavin.  In the next few weeks, he is charged with making the decisions as to who will be the four captain’s picks for the 2010 U.S. Ryder Cup Team.  It has been a long time since a captain has had so many worthy selections to choose from, and there are going to be a lot of good players sitting at home.  We’ll do our best to decipher the situation that currently faces Pavin.

Much was made of Paul Azinger’s decision to change the selection process for the victorious 2008 U.S. Team.  Azinger made adjustments to the process that limited off-year points to only the majors, and also slimmed down the automatic qualifiers from 10 to 8.  Many analysts acted as if these changes were the major contributing factor to the Americans’ success.  In reality, Azinger’s tinkering only kept one player off the squad: Woody Austin.  He and Hunter Mahan would have been the 9th and 10th qualifiers under the old qualifying scheme, and Mahan was a captain’s selection anyway.  If all these analysts think that the inclusion of J.B. Holmes or Boo Weekley over Austin was the main reason for the Yanks’ success…well, that’s just absurd.

However, the adjusted process is likely to have an even bigger factor in 2010, as it very well may turn out to be the thing that keeps Tiger Woods off the team.  Under the pre-2008 process, Woods would already be a lock based on the points he would have earned during his 2009 campaign.  Not so under the new system.

The Locks

Phil Mickelson, Hunter Mahan, Jim Furyk, Steve Stricker, Jeff Overton, & Anthony Kim (more…)

Well, this is probably going to get posted by the time the coverage ends today, but whatever…we don’t operate on any stupid “European Time.”  There’s only one real time zone…AMERICAN TIME, ya hurd?

Anyways, there hasn’t been a lot of movement in the leaderboard here at the Tuna for awhile, probably due to my indelible brilliance and the rest of these fuck’s inability to pick anyone worth a shit.  We’ll see if adjusting the scoring helps (wins = -25 points now), but seeing as I’m the only one of these slackjawed yokels who doesn’t have their head firmly implanted in their tuckus, well…

  1. NASA’s think tank – 135
  2. lefty – 290
  3. AC – 389
  4. Schneider – 418
  5. toneypenna – 486
  6. BWAHAHAHAHHAHA – 550

Lets get to the picks, shall we?
