New Low Update

In my post, New Low for Some Golfers, I shared how a man was stabbed in the leg by someone in the group ahead. The confrontation was over whether to let the victim and his group through on a par-3.

The update is the man may lose his leg. It sounds like he's lucky he didn't bleed to death because his femoral artery was punctured.

But, really? Was not letting a group play through worth a man's leg? May be more to this story, but the situation certainly got out of hand.

Good luck to the victim and hope he is able to heal.

Sergio Kept Playing

After a 12 on a par-4 hole, I give Sergio credit for staying in the game. He ended up shooting five birdies after the 12.

I suspect that's the difference between pros and amateurs; they can mentally re-focus quickly and keep playing.

When I was studying for the Bar exam, I learned a saying, "Hit it and move on!" I try to apply it to my game, but...

Happens Even to the Pros

Sergio Garcia started the round with an eagle at Doral today. Then, he shot a 12 on a par-4 hole.

He has my sympathies. Most of us have done it where we blow up on a hole. It will be interesting to watch how he responds. Throw the rest of the round away or keep fighting until he sinks his final putt on 18?
