Transitions Championship Innisbrook Resort and Golf Club

The Transitions Championship will be played at Innisbrook Resort and Golf Club in Tampa Bay, FL. The course will play at a long 7,340, par 71. Better get some D2’s. Formerly the PODS Championship, the Chrysler Championship, the Tampa Bay Classic presented by Buick, and the Tampa Bay Classic, this event will net the winner $972,000 of $5.4 million. Sean O’Hair is the defending champion and held off a nice group of players finishing T2 including Stewart Cink, Ryuji Imada, Billy Mayfair, George McNeill, Troy Matteson, and John Senden.

This week I’m going into it with “a confidence that has been earned over three months”  ok no more quotes from an over hyped D2 team that really didn’t make that much of a jump in terms of regular season competition’s coach. I’m taking my man Calc again. He won here in 2007 and finished T14 with 9 other dudes at +1. He is coming off finishes of T4 and T6 in consecutive weeks this year and is going into a tournament that he won 2 years ago. And last years T14 finish ended up being tied for 4th best and 5 shots off of the lead. Not bad, plus he’s real jolly. He also had a caddy who was a convict that Calc gave a second chance at life after prison. That guy now caddies for young gun Anthony Kim. See, Calc is just oozing with jolly.

I’m going with Ryan Moore to break through and get the first win of his professional career.  Moore is one of the most legendary amateur players of all time, and in 2004 alone, he collected the US Amateur, the Western Amateur, the US Public Links and the individual NCAA championship.  Big things have been expected since the day he turned pro, and while he has come close on a few occasions, Moore has never broken through.  This year, he’s ditched all his sponsorships and has shown up to play looking like an emo kid and wearing clothes three sizes small with a mixed bag and some golf shoes that look like Chuck Taylors.  He’s got the game for a major, but everyone has to break through somewhere, why not here?

I’m going to pick Furyk. He played one hell of a back nine last week to finish out the CA Campionship and seems quite overdue for a win. He’s a master tactician and an overall solid player. I don’t think he’ll have any trouble playing well this week after the boost in confidence from his finish last week.

I’m going back to my original plan…pick KP until he wins. Common sense hasn’t worked for me yet and so I’m just going to try and stick to my guns here. Perry’s Hilltopper’s are dancing this weekend as a #12 so maybe he can pull some alma-mater karma and get me some points. A 12 always beats a 5 and a Big Red win equals a KP win.
