What is the Yellow Driver Rickie Fowler is Using in 2019?

Rickie Fowler has the Cobra KING F9 SPEEDBACK in the back for the 2019 FedEx Cup season. We will see him use it at the end of 2018 and throughout all of 2019. It looks like a neon yellow or light green when he takes the clubhead cover off to tee it. Here it is:

2018 Shriners Open Final Round Live Blog

As always, the timestamps will be Eastern Standard Time:

6:33 – Bryson two putts and wins the  2018 Shriners Open at -21.

6:19 – Dechambeau is in the fairway looking for his fourth win in the 2018 calendar year. Not a bad year for the kid. He needs too putts from the middle of the green to get his fifth victory.

Will Tiger vs Phil Include Golf Carts?

They are calling it The Match. This is blasphemy for anyone that knows about Byron Nelson and Ben Hogan vs Harvie Ward and Ken Venturi. If you haven’t read the book, go get it now. The Tiger vs Phil after Thanksgiving matchup is going to be one for the ages. Although they both played terrible at the Ryder Cup, this is a different animal altogether. They are playing for $9 million, they will be the only two golfers on the course and there will be side bets. Phil mentioned betting $50k that Tiger couldn’t hit a downhill putt on a specific hole. Not $50, $50,000. Can you imagine a putt being worth $50,000?

We do know that there will not be a crowd at this event. It will also be a Pay Per View event for $20. What we don’t know is who will be at the event, besides the caddies, or if Tiger or Phil will be riding around in Golf Carts. I think all golf fans would agree that Tiger and Phil with their own cart would be wonderful. The could ride over each other’s balls or could roll up while the other is about to hit a shot. Anyone that has played golf knows the importance of a well timed Golf Cart roll up.

2018 Tour Championship Third Round Live Blog

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.

2018 Tour Championship Second Round Live Blog

I will update with time stamps (eastern standard time)

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.

2018 Tour Championship First Round Live Blog

I will update with time stamps (eastern standard time)

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 precipitously 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 at 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.
