Excess speed

Sheriff: Excessive speed caused Tiger Woods crash

 

 

The golf superstar was driving 84 to 87 mph on a downhill stretch of road outside Los Angeles that had a speed limit of 45 mph, Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva said Wednesday.

Another tournament win for Brooke Henderson. She started the day 4 shots back, but closed with a 4-under 67 to win by a stroke:

Canada’s Brooke Henderson rallied to win the HUGEL Air Premia LA Open on Saturday for her 10th LPGA Tour title, chipping in for birdie on the par-3 12th in an early back-nine burst and getting up-and-down for par on the last.

Four strokes behind leader Jessica Korda and three back of top-ranked Jin Young Ko entering the sunny, breezy day at Wilshire Country Club, the native of Smiths Falls, Ont., closed with her second straight 4-under 67 for a one-stroke victory over Korda.

This is career win #10 for Brooke, putting her 2 clear of Sandra Post, George Knudson and Mike Weir, who all have 8.

 

Oh yes....and she's 23 years old...:gocan:

Woooow that was cool to see. So happy for Philthy!

 

He seems like the coolest down to earth guy.

Figjam? Really? :huh:

 

I think my favorite Mickelson moment is when he was asked by a reporter who the first lefty to win the Masters would be and he rolled his eyes and said "I think we all know the answer to that"....

 

Mike Weir won it right after....

Got to love American TV coverage of golf. Koepka all over the place but gets all the TV time, meanwhile Canadian Hughes is playing with him and is never shown on TV...Hope Hughes has a good round so they are FORCED to show the Canadians play!

It's always driven me nuts....

 

I remember back in the day, Tiger Woods might be 10 shots off the pace, but they'd cut to him every time he took a shot. :rolleyes:

 

The Golf Channel is much better, but they were showing a different tournament (Barbasol Championship) yesterday as they only had rights to the first two rounds. After that, it was NBC and the Koepka - Dechambeau "feud"....<_<

 

I'm going to guess that Colin Morikawa got some coverage today......once NBC figured out that he's American and not Japanese....

- For those that thought Casey was just lazy.

https://www.msn.com/en-ca/sports/golf/report-casey-martin-has-right-leg-amputated/ar-AAPBNZa?ocid=msedgdhp&pc=U531

NEW YORK (AP) — Casey Martin, the Oregon golf coach who successfully sued the PGA Tour for the right to use a cart because of a rare circulatory disease, had his right leg amputated in what he told Golf Digest was always going to be “my destiny.”

The magazine, which has been in touch with Martin over the last few weeks, reported on its website that he had surgery Friday and was recovering at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. His brother said doctors feel it went well enough that Martin has a good shot at an effective prosthesis.

Martin suffered from Klippel-Trenaunay-Weber syndrome, which restricted circulation in the lower portion of his right leg and made it virtually impossible for him to walk 18 holes. He still managed to practice and play well enough to earn a PGA Tour card for the 2000 season.

 

His lawsuit citing the Americans with Disabilities Act made it all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, which voted 7-2 in his favor in a 2001 decision.

Martin, a teammate of Tiger Woods on Stanford’s national championship team, has been the head golf coach at Oregon since 2006. He qualified for the U.S. Open in 2012.

The magazine said Martin, 49, broke his right leg two years ago, which eventually led to the decision to amputate when being in a cast and a series of injections failed to heal the tibia.

“In many ways I exceeded what my doctors told me as a kid,” Martin told Golf Digest two weeks ago. “I always felt this would be my destiny. So while it’s weird to be here now, about to become seriously disfigured, it’s not unexpected.”

Jeff Quinney, the 2000 U.S. Amateur champion and assistant coach at Oregon, will take over while Martin recovers.
