58?

Posted by Radatz on August 8, 2016 at 2:10 PM Comments comments (7)


Since Jim Furyk joined the tour in 1994 he's been very good, but always snowed under by the avalanche of good golfers who emerged as his contemporaries. Tiger Woods used to get all the ink even though Furyk had compiled the second-best winning streak of the time, winning at least one tournament every year from 1998 through 2003. These days a slew of new generation stars like Jordan Spieth grab the headlines, all deservedly so.

 

But none of them has done what Fury...

Because I'm not a fan

Posted by Galfur on May 12, 2013 at 12:55 PM Comments comments (12)

I'm only writing this because I'm not a personal fan of Tiger Woods, I admit it. It's not that I don't admire his galf skill. I do. I continue to believe that he will break, if not shatter, Jack's major record. Just too much talent there. No, it's not the lack of appreciation for his skill, it's the lack of appreciation for his (these are my words and opinion) character flaw. That's it. I don't like him as a person.


Now it didn't start that way. There was a time, as he was m...

Stay Loose. Have Fun. Git Er Done!!!

On to the World Serious for the Tiggers. Yankee killers that they are. Exciting stuff. Congrats are in order but the work ain't done.


The starting pitching has been nothing short of spectacular. Too good to be true but thus far, it's all true. IF it holds up, they're going to be one tough draw for who ever survives the NL. This is EXACTLY the type of powerful, dominant pitching that teased tigger fans through the regular season. The problem in the regular season is/was: cons...

The Life of a Golfer: Canadian Edition

Posted by Mac D on January 19, 2012 at 2:35 AM Comments comments (17)


Life can be described and symbolized in many ways. The growth of a flower and a roller coaster ride are some common examples but for Jonnie Motomochi his young and aspiring life can be described as the flight of a golf ball.


After contact, the ball gracefully takes off into the air in a beautiful sight and sound, traveling at high speeds, over a long distance before coming back down to earth and eventually to a stop. After this whirl wind the ball is eventually ...

Live, from..........Orlando

Well folks, the main event has arrived on my calendar. Galfur is reporting live from the Grand Cypress Resort, which is host venue to the Jim Moran Classic. This is the “ex-jock” event I’ve been waiting to attend. I’ll share a little about the “ex-jocks” but I would be remiss not to mention the reason behind the event and the man who created it, Jim Moran.

 

The JM Classic is a living testimonial to one of the greatest men I have ever had t...

Thumbs Up For Galfur Jr

Posted by Galfur on August 20, 2011 at 12:00 PM Comments comments (7)

Big day in the Galfur family. As some of you know, I play in a Saturday morning galf scramble. We've been doing it for about 15 years now. It started as my Brother-In-Law, Nephew, Father and I. The Bro-In-Law developed a conflict on Saturday mornings, so we picked up a member as the fourth. A couple of years ago my son joined us, and we substituted him for the member making it a family affair again. He's been on the High School Galf Team the past two years and has been steadily closing the ga...

Welcome To NE Ohio!

Posted by JDIN827 on August 6, 2011 at 2:55 PM Comments comments (5)

I hope you will all watch or at least read about the Hall of Fame Ceremony tonight, and get to see Northeast Ohio shine!  One thing I've always heard/read is how top notch the events (and planning)  are, but also how  well-treated everyone is (from the Enshrinees to the Public).  We do it and we do it well!  By the way, the Hall is expanding once again.   Nothing like Football, and nothin like seeing the Greats in the Hall.

Live, from................Strawberry Farms

Posted by Galfur on July 14, 2011 at 12:22 AM Comments comments (8)

No, not Strawberry Fields, Strawberry Farms. A little galf course in Irvine owned and run by former Baltimore Orioles third baseman Doug DeCinces. Had a chance to get out and play on this business trip. Perfect day in SoCal. Put up a good score (anytime you break 80 is a good day), even racked up an eagle on number 8 (drove the green and knocked one down.


So, how about Doug DeCinces? Talk about a guy who landed in a tough spot. How do you replace a Hall of Famer like Brooks ...

Gettin to a happy place

Posted by Galfur on October 16, 2010 at 5:41 AM Comments comments (7)

It's Saturday morning, a galf day in southeast Michigan. Not many of these days left. I've got to take advantage of it. The weight of work is bearing down and I haven't played in two weeks. Unusual for a guy who plays 3-4 times a week. This is our regular Saturday morning scramble, we're always amongst the winning teams but I haven't even touched a club in two freakin weeks.

 

So I decide to use the quiet time in the house (who else is up at this hour on a Saturday morning?)...
