I will update with time stamps (eastern standard time)

6:20 – Tiger cards a par on 18 and will have a three shot lead going into the final round. He will be playing with Rory McIlroy. I will be interested to see his reaction when Rory bombs a 350 yard drive 40 yards past him. Tomorrow will be fun.

6:13 – Tiger rips another one down the fairway. Looks likely that it could be Tiger and Rory in the final group. Tiger will have a four shot lead going into the final round if he can birdie 18.

5:54 – Tiger gives it a run but it slides by. He will finish with a total of -7; tied with Rose. They will tee off last tomorrow.

5:44 – Tiger destroys one down the middle of the fairway on 18. He will have around 220 in. Rickie hits his a little left and gets held up by the rough. Rickie will likely need to lay up. Rose birdies 18 so he finishes at -7. Tiger needs a birdie on 18 to tie Rose. Tiger hits a good shot and will have about a 20 footer uphill for eagle. That would give him the lead alone at -8.

4:30 – Tiger gives a great interview with Steve Sands in which he thanks the fans for their encouragement. The ratings for the Golf Channel are about to drop┬áprecipitously now that Tiger is off the course. I will be tuning out myself. Until tomorrow.

Governor’s Club Golf Course Under Water after Hurricane Florence

Chapel Hill Country Club and Hope Valley Country Club are both under water the day after Hurricane Florence rolled through. With so much of Governor’s Club being around water and at low spots, there has to be some holes that are completely under water. If you have any pictures or video, please send them to me at jwojdylo@gmail.com.

Chapel Hill Country Club Under Water After Hurricane Florence

It is safe to say they won’t be playing golf at Chapel Hill Country Club for quite some time. The area around the “lakes” on holes #9, #10 and #18 is completely under water as you can see from the pictures below. The fairway of hole #11 is also underwater. The water is basically a river coming from the other side of the road onto the fairway of #18. If you have any other pictures, feel free to email them to jwojdylo@gmail.com. It looks like Hope Valley is just as bad.

Hope Valley Country Club Under Water After Hurricane Florence

There are a few low spots at Hope Valley Country club, especially holes #2, #3, #11 and #17. Here is a picture of the new “island green” on hole #2.

If you have any other pictures of Hope Valley underwater after Hurricane Florence, please email them to me at jwojdylo@gmail.com.

This is the fairway of hole #4. Quite the carry to get it over the water hazard these days.

As expected, hole #11 is completely under water.

Note much landing area on hole #11 at HVCC.

A water hazard in front of hole #12 now.

Another picture of hole #11. You have to carry it all the way to the green today. Only about 420.

Playing Hope Valley Country Club – Hole by Hole

From the White Tees:

Hole #1 – 379 Yards – Par 4

The first hole a Hope Valley Country Club is a downhill, relatively short par 4. With a decent drive, you will have an 8 iron or less into the green. The defense of this hole is the creek that runs across the fairway about 100 yards in front of the green. Most bombers will not hit driver on this hole as the creek will come into play.

These updates will be associated with actual time (est):

2:39 – Rose misses his first putt inside of 5 feet all tournament. Keegan Bradley wins in the playoff. Justin Rose goes to #1 in the World Golf Rankings but is not happy to lose that way. He hit the lip on two straight putts to lose. The putt in the playoffs was a very poor putt though.

Frank Baker Golfer – Real or Fiction?

If you find this article, you are likely reading the new John Feinstein book, “The Prodigy”. After reading about Frank Baker and his skills as a golf, you are often left wondering, “is this kid real?” The answer is no. This is a book of fiction with many non fiction characters including Rory McIlroy, Phil Mickelson, Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas, Jason Day, Brandt Snedeker, Justin Rose, Zach Johnson and a number of other PGA Tour pros.

What are the Beetles on the Bermuda Greens and Fairways in North Carolina?

If you have played golf in North Carolina during the summer, you have likely seen beetles on the fairways and greens. The one thing you will likely notice about the specific beetles I’m mentioned is the fact that they always seem to be mating. It is 95 degrees with 80% humidity and five to 10 beetles will be on top of each other in what I am assuming is a mating ritual.
