First Niagara WNYPGA Junior Tour @ Centerpointe CC

The 2011 First Niagara WNYPGA Junior Tour made a stop in Canandaigua, NY today at Centerpointe CC.  It seems as if the youngsters are beginning to learn how to play with the wet course conditions.  The winning scores were the finest that the tour has seen all year. Thomas Kolb posted a 4 under par 67 to win the 16-18 year old division.  His 67 is the lowest score of the season.  After the round spectators said that Thomas hit close to 15 greens in regulation and was able to get up and down when he missed.  The effort was a career low for Thomas.  Kyle Bromley, Christine Schmitt and Christian Chapman also won their respected divisions with a 72, 75 and 39 respectively.

Jordan Spieth Plays Nelson and Graduates High School Today.

Jordan Spieth could have quite the day to remember today. Spieth, just 17 years old, made the cut as an amateur at last year’s Byron Nelson and he did it again this year. Today, Spieth is set to graduate from high school following his third round. “Right after the round… I’m going to shoot over there as quickly as possible,” Spieth said of graduation. “I don’t know how long it usually lasts.” Through nine holes of his third round, Spieth is T13 and two-under. A few more birdies and he’ll be graduating tonight and starting in the top 10 tomorrow morning. Share this:TwitterFacebookGoogleTumblrLinkedInPinterestLike this:Like...

Need A Rooting Interest This Week?

Of all the players in all the tournaments on all the tours this weekend, perhaps nobody needs your cheering and support more than Ken Green. Green will tee it up in this weekend’s Senior PGA Championship at Valhalla. If you’ve heard of Green before it’s because of the tragedy that has been the last few years of his life. Green lost his girlfriend and brother when his RV blew a tire and went out of control down an embankment, ramming into an oak tree. Green survived but lost part of his right leg and now wears a prosthetic. That’s enough horror and pain for any life but Green learned a year later that his 21-year-old son had died after digesting a lethal combination of alcohol and drugs. Through all of it, Green has kept his dream of playing and succeeding at professional golf. He wants to prove that he can still play, despite the prosthetic leg, the pain he carries and the nightmares he must endure. He believes if he plays well he can inspire others who’ve lost limbs and/or battled depression. “I can’t tell you how bad I want to play one good tournament and what I mean by that is if I were to finish in the top 20 in any Champions Tour Event,” he told reporters. “I could walk away and smile.” Root for Ken Green...
