I love bowling true enough but theres something about golf that really gets my competitive fires burning. I get a great amount of joy from playing the sport, very relaxing and so very difficult to conquer and that is why i have such an appreciation for the top tournaments in the sport, especially ones like the U.S. Open. The top players in the world trying to navigate and conquer a course thats set up to penalize the slightest of mistakes. This weekend i was glued to the TV, wondering who would win it all and in the end Greenville, SC native Lucas Glover was the last man standing. He overtook tournament leader Ricky Barnes, held off crowd favorite Phil Mickelson, and overall golf favorite Tiger Woods. Phil finally winning would have been a good story considering what he's facing in his family with his wife and he had his chances, he just couldnt get it done. Tiger did too, he starts to slow and tries to turn it on when he's too far back. My hats off and congrats goes to Glover because he did what he had to do when he had to do it, he played solid the whole weekend. Great tournament......i'm looking forward to the day when bowling Championships have the same intrigue and storylines. Oh yeah....i was also very impressed with the play and resolve of one of my former favorite players, Mr. David Duval. He's overcome so much in his career and it was refreshing to see him put it all together in one of the toughest events in the world. Overall this was a great U.S. Open, great crowd, horrible weather, and several improbable leaders.....the makings of one of the best golf events in years. These are just my thoughts.....if you love golf like i do share yours.
