There’s History To Be Made At The PGA Championship

spieth-mcilroy-split-640x360

It’s an exciting time to be alive!! It’s golf season!! This morning marks the opening round of the 2017 PGA Championship. While the 1st tee-time is set for 7:20 a.m., TNT’s coverage doesn’t start until 1:00 p.m. This makes NO sense seeing how the 2 most popular groups will be done playing by the time TV coverage starts. Sergio Garcia, Brooks Koepka, and Jordan Spieth tee-off at 8:25 a.m., and Jason Day, Dustin Johnson, and Henrik Stenson tee-off at 8:35 a.m. Someone please explain this to me….

Anyway, the 99th PGA Championship will be held at Quail Hollow Country Club, in North Carolina. There is an exciting field of mostly young golfers ready to entertain you. Entertain me clowns!! Expect a competitive tournament over the next 4 days, but before I tell you who’s going to win, let’s meet the favorites:

  • Rory Mcilroy (+700)
  • Jordan Spieth (+900)
  • Dustin Johnson/Hideki Matsuyama (+1200)
  • Rickie Fowler (+1400)
  • Jon Rahm/Brooks Koepka (+2200)

Despite winning the Open Championship just a few weeks ago, Jordan Spieth is not the favorite here. This surprises me, but Mcilroy is no slouch. My prediction is coming soon..relax!!

I think Jordan Spieth and Rory Mcilroy have something special in store for us this weekend. The PGA Tour is going to love what these fine golfers are about to do for their sport. They will separate themselves from the field over the next 3 days, and come Sunday, will be staring each other down in the final pairing. While Mcilroy has won 2 PGA Championships in his career, I think this is Spieth’s year.

Prediction: Spieth will beat Mcilroy in a playoff on Sunday to capture his 1st PGA Championship.

This will give Spieth consecutive major victories, and more importantly, the career grand slam. He would become the youngest player to accomplish this feat (yes younger than Tiger Woods). Allow me to put the career grand slam into perspective. Over the vast history of golf, there are only 5 golfers to complete the career grand slam:

  • Gene Sarazen
  • Ben Hogan
  • Gary Player
  • Jack Nicklaus
  • Tiger Woods

That’s it!! Arnold Palmer couldn’t do it. Phil Mickelson hasn’t done it. But, Jordan Spieth will do it. Golfer’s like Spieth don’t come around every year, so enjoy his dominance while it lasts.

I just wanted to wish the New York Knicks good luck against the Miami Heat this week.

Oh wait sorry never mind, you have to actually beat the other teams on your schedule first.

You mean things don’t happen just because you say they’re going to??

Sergio, I’m making dinner tomorrow night, do you want to come over?

I’m making Paella!

How bout dem’ Yankees!

Seriously though if the baseball season ended today Mariano Rivera would win the CY Young Award.

Amazing!!

On another serious note Da Bears are finally going to retire Mike Ditka’s number.

Congratulations Ditka!!

“I took a punch from Hall of Famer, Mike Ditka, and I did not go down!”

“Sure, I wobbled a bit, but I did not go down.”

“That Ditka has fists like a small truck.”

If you haven’t seen the movie Kicking and Screaming you should, it’s pretty funny and Mike Ditka is very funny in it.

Miguel Cabrera is really good at baseball.

Just in case you forgot, the NHL Playoffs are going on right now.

I know, it’s wild that you didn’t know that.

(Inside Indiana Pacers huddle before the final play of game 1) Frank Vogel speaking (probably really fast in a funny voice) : Roy Hibbert what are you, uh 7’2″, yea you probably can’t block anyone’s shot you take a seat here next to me, and nobody guard that #6 guy I heard he’s not very good.

How’d that work out for ya?

Heyyyyyyy, the New York Rangers won a hockey game!

Hey Chase Utley’s hurt again, that’s a shocker.

Why do NBA players think it’s okay to dress like this……….

http://m.bleacherreport.com/articles/1649354-paul-georges-outfit-last-night-was-a-sea-of-microorganisms-and-regret

All of these atrocious outfits in the NBA have inspired me to write a book that will be entitled: Where Have All The Men Gone?

I always set my Sno-Cones down on the bathroom floor at a stadium filled with people.

Then I don’t wash my hands and I sell them.

Word on the street is they were lemon flavor…..mmmmmm yummy!

Hey RG3, can your daddy fight my battles for me too??

I’m glad I’m not Mark Sanchez.

I am really glad I watched The Preakness… NOT!

Can I get a stare down here?

Andre Ethier’s wasn’t bad, but if you want to see the best stare down of all-time check this out :

You’re awesome Frank Robinson.

Hi, My Name Is Sergio Garcia And I’m A Racist

I’m going to keep this short and sweet. I’m going to get straight to the point because I don’t want to talk about Sergio Garcia. I don’t want to put his name out in the atmosphere anymore, however he needs to be put in his place. For those of you who don’t know what happened; listen up! Sergio Garcia has been running his mouth all over town about Tiger Woods, and nobody (especially Tiger himself) really cares what he has to say. So, Tuesday evening Sergio Garcia was jokingly asked if he was going to invite Tiger Woods to dinner during the U.S. Open? Sergio intelligently responded, “We will have him round every night. We will serve fried chicken.” Really Sergio? REALLY?!?!? I completely understand why Sergio continues to run his mouth. He clearly wants to stay in the limelight because his golf game obviously hasn’t gotten him anywhere. And who better to associate yourself with than Tiger Woods? The only problem is that this is a one-way conversation being held by Sergio and Sergio alone. I want to give Sergio some advice: spend more time on the putting green and less time stirring up make believe controversies. Then maybe his name would be brought up for something productive rather than some caveman nonsense.

Now, let me get back to the issue at hand. Clearly Sergio Garcia is showing his true colors. He is clearly still upset that he didn’t beat Tiger 14 years ago, and he’s upset he’s never beat him (by the way, he is NEVER going to beat him). The problem is that Garcia crossed the line. He has gone so far past the line he can’t even see the line anymore. The line is a dot to him. Any FRIENDS fans out there?? Seriously though, how could a person say something SO offensive in this day and age? And then pretend that he didn’t know it was offensive to black people? Sergio Garcia gets an NFL style Come On Man for that one. Sergio doesn’t need to apologize, he needs to crawl into a hole somewhere and sew his mouth shut for a while. What I’m mostly surprised about is that there aren’t a great number of people making a big deal out of this. I figured there would be a huge uproar over a senseless comment like this but it has been minimal. Tiger himself pretty much brushed it off the same way he’s brushed Sergio off the past couple of weeks. You know that gnat that is intent on following you around the park all day? Yeah. This is a non-factor attempting to re-rent his 15 minutes of fame for the 18th time. We are all tired of you and you’re stupid mouth Sergio, so please shut it.

Sincerely,

The Whole World

The End

One Liner Fridays

This is my 2nd post of the day, so make sure to scroll down to check out my post on the New York Knicks.

Hey Bryce Harper, there’s a wall there, uh somebody should uh move it.

Nick Saban is the devil?

What did somebody hear Saban’s name in a Judas Priest song playing backwards?

Heyyyyyyyy the Knicks won a basketball game.

Gronkowski with a pile driver!

What an idiot!

Don’t be sad Kevin Durant, maybe Lebron James won’t be good next year.

The Yankees are in a familiar place (1st) with unfamiliar faces.

Phil Hughes sucks though.

Joba Chamberlain is lucky that Mariano Rivera is the nicest most classy guy in sports.

If he wasn’t I’m pretty sure Joba would be trying to put his face back together right now.

Tiger Woods never left, he just checked out for a little while, and then he checked in and out and in and out of motels all over the country.

But seriously though, Tiger woods is and always has been the best golfer on the planet.

Nice shot(s) Sergio.

Way to not choke.

Best Free Agent Signing in the NFL in 2013 goes to: Drum Roll Please………….

David Garrard to the New York Jets.

Only the Jets can sign someone and have them retire before they ever play a single snap.

They should resign Tim Tebow to take his roster spot.

Titus Young should write two books.

His first book should be entitled: How to get arrested twice in one day.

Then his follow-up book should be called: Twice wasn’t enough? I can teach you how to get arrested a third time in one week.

Let me be the first to say that if Floyd Mayweather fights Canelo Alvarez, he will suffer his first professional loss.

Hey Beckham, NOBODY CARES!!
