Enjoy the weekend.
Saturday morning on the Teebox, we'll be at the big Dallas Golf Show at the Las Colinas Convention Center from 8-10 and then at the AG booth till 5pm.
We'll see if Tiger Woods' back is back, go over the AG Best of Private Club Rankings and Craig will take the wireless mic into the crowd!
So give us a listen and stop by and say hi. We don't bite. Much...
There's no gambling at Bushwood sir.
Or, apparently in Florida based on this story.
As the group of golfers walked to the clubhouse that morning, it was greeted by general manager Chuck Winship.
No more betting in league play, said Winship, revealing he was under investigation by Tarpon Springs police.
"Every golf course in this country does it, and why they singled out this golf course I'll never know," said group member Ray Hamil, 78."You call any course you want (about gambling leagues) and they will all tell you the same thing, and if they don't, I'll buy you the biggest steak in the state."
"Originally," Winship said, "I thought it was joke." Then he learned the case has been forwarded to the Pinellas-Pasco State Attorney's Office.
Winship told members that morning that if they wanted to play a regular round of golf, fine. But if they wanted to put up the usual $20, to be divided afterward based on how they play, they would have to go elsewhere.
The prospect of law enforcement overseeing the pervasive and somewhat perfunctory routine of golf wagers seemed peculiar, if not pointless, a pair of legal experts said.
"On the Richter scale of crime, this has got to be in the minus," said Bob Dekle, a professor at the University of Florida Levin College of Law. "I don't see a prosecutor being wildly enthusiastic about prosecuting the case unless there are thousands and thousands of dollars being bet."
This P.J. Carmichael kid can hole a shot from some incredible places.

Tiger Woods is back this week at the WGC Cadillac Championship.
Question is, is his back back?
"I think we have to take a more global look at it, yeah, absolutely, because it comes and goes," he said.
"We've got to make sure that we do preventative things to make sure that it doesn't happen and adjust certain things, whether it's swing, lifting, whatever it may be, you have to make certain adjustments.
"We've done that throughout my entire career (principally to accommodate his troublesome left knee), and this is no different."
Except that it is.
In Woods' own words "a bad back is something that is no joke."
"It's after impact. So my leg was busted (in 2008). I could deliver the club to however I wanted to on the golf ball. It was just going to hurt like hell afterwards," he said.
"This was different because it effects downswing, follow-through and it was getting so tight that I felt like I couldn't move."
"The will to win hasn't changed," Woods said.
"It's, 'Physically, am I able to do it?.'"
FYI, Adam Scott will take over the #1 World Ranking spot if he wins this week and Woods finishes 6th or worse.

Check out the stats when the powerful Tour player Gary Woodland recently swung a new metal wood vs. the old school persimmon.
Most notable improvements were on club speed (11% faster), ball speed (13% faster) and a 17% increase in carry.
Kinda surprised the spin rate wasn't more notable (only a 6% change). My guess is he used a current ball vs. the highly spinny balata.

Well, so much for all the talk about growing the game as the extension to amateurs using an anchored putter during tournament play was blocked yesterday. Geoffshackleford.com posts the message sent by PGA President Ted Bishop.
Seems like a lot of hand-wringing over nothing. I don't like or use them, but also do not begrudge those that do. If it makes the game more palatable for those players, good for them--and the game. For I hardly believe its a cheating element that makes putting criminally easy.
Dear PGA Professional, I am writing to inform you that the United States Golf Association (USGA) has decided not to extend the implementation date of Rule 14-1b (anchoring) for amateur golfers beyond Jan. 1, 2016. Last month at the USGA Annual Meeting in Pinehurst, N.C., PGA TOUR Commissioner Tim Finchem and I outlined our proposal for a “grandfather” period to provide amateurs with more time to adapt to playing without an anchored stroke. Both the PGA of America and the PGA TOUR have consistently shared strong feelings about this matter with the USGA and we appreciated the opportunity to formally present our views before the USGA’s full Executive Committee. While we are disappointed with the USGA’s decision not to extend the implementation date beyond Jan. 1, 2016, I know that all PGA Professionals are committed to helping amateur players choose a permissible putting stroke that will help them continue to enjoy the game well into the future. Indeed, PGA Professionals go to work every day knowing that we are the most respected instructors in the game. This is a new challenge and opportunity that we will embrace, and along with helping PGA TOUR players, we will assist golfers of all abilities in advance of the implementation date of Rule 14-1b. Finally, we believe that one of the profound outcomes that emerged from the discussion of “anchoring,” is that both the PGA of America and the PGA TOUR have a more meaningful seat at the Rules table for future decisions affecting the game. We strongly believe that such enhanced communication among our respected organizations is essential to the long-term viability of golf. Regards, Ted Bishop, PGAPGA of America President
