IT WAS NICE TO SEE NU ALUM Luke
Donald with a chance to win yesterday
at Hilton Head on the PGA Tour. Matt
Kuchar holes a bunker shot on 18 to beat
Donald but Luke was right there with a
chance to win. Maybe the work with on
his long game with Chuck Cook is paying
off. We know the work on his short game
with Pat Goss sure is.
Stay clicked in during the week, all sorts
of things including more thoughts on golf
course renovations on Wednesday.
The weather is finally nice, GO PLAY.
