It's so cold at night that I bring a hammer & screwdriver to punch a hole for the tee on some of the tee boxes. Hit a ball on a par three, about 130yds, hit the front left where it was rock solid, sounded like concrete, bounced high and over and down the hill on the other side. Followed that with a tee shot on the next hole, par 4 and because of the hard fairway it ended up further then any other drive I'd ever hit on that hole before. Take the good with the bad. Out again today before the rain and snow fall.

Finally getting some rain down in the SF Bay Area, which has cleaned up the air; Im sure its also helping the firefighters so, thats good. But, it may be too much of a good thing, since 7 of the next 10 days call for rain.

All square going to 18 after Tiger chips one in on 17. It looked like Phil was going to win it on 17, but no.

Phil missed the 5 foot putt on hole 21. Now heading to hole 22.

Tiger puts one tight. Phil puts one tighter.

DW and I enjoyed watching "The Match" with 5 other friends yesterday... I had recorded it and we were a little behind in time and paused it for dinner after Tiger made "the chip"... pretty clutch.

I was actually surprised. Given their relative performances over the last golf season, I thought Tiger would dominate.. but he didn't. While it was very entertaining, the golf was so-so... 9 birdies over 44 holes by my count.

I suspect that we will ultimately see "The Re-Match".

I came up with another interesting pay per view event pitting two athletes for a friend of mine who is a NY Giants fan... we'll pit Eli Manning and Tom Brady off in a 40-yard dash. People might be willing to pay 20 cents for that.

Id pay 20 cents to watch Brady & Manning RUN FROM Von Miller & Aaron Donald. Heck, Id record that just to be able to watch it over and over.

In the spirit of fairness (and pure entertainment value) wed give the QBs a 5 yd head start. I estimate theyd get crushed @ ~35 yds.

First we had smokey air for 2 weeks and now it's rainy, windy and cold. Haven't played in just over 2 weeks. I have a tee time this Friday at Paradise Valley.

Supposed to be sunny; hope its dry enough for you. Whats the latest on PV? Is it still being closed?

I played Eagle Vines last Friday & it was glorious! Nice & sunny and not too soggy, except for some water filling the bottom of a few bunkers, which is fine with me because I can take the ball out.

I never heard anything about PV closing. I hope not, I really like the course. I played Eagle Vines last May and enjoyed the course.

Headed to Palm Springs next month. Any suggestions on courses?

Also, any experience/thoughts on the TPC West Stadium course?

TPC Stadium is definitely worth playing but it's tough, lots of water and the fairways have a lot of mounds so many uneven lies, Pete Dye likes to torture golfers. I actually prefer the Nicklaus Tournament course that shares the same range and clubhouse and is right next to it. There are so many good golf courses in Palm Springs it's hard to go wrong, it's like being a kid in a candy store. A couple off the radar courses that I like are Shadow Hills South and Mountain Vista San Gorgonio, just as good and cheaper than some of the more popular courses.
