Akron hosts PGA’s best and brightest: Day gives it away to Johnson

first_img Danny Simpson Related Topics Firestone CC South Course is characterized by long, narrow fairways, thick rough, and high-risk, high-reward pin locations that can take a players confidence and momentum away at the snap of your fingers. If you had to scramble for most of the tournament, you were not going to score well. Dustin Johnson is proving to be not only one of the longest players on the Tour, he is also being recognized as one of the most accurate players in terms of proximity with his approach shots. If you combine all that into one round, you might find yourself winning more often than not….and with this course, being a good scrambler was not going to get you very far. Jason Day went into the final round of the Bridgestone Invitational tied for the lead and got off to a quick, positive start to the round with an eagle on the 2nd hole which would give him a two shot lead. The rest of the round would be pretty standard until the final four holes. Day would finish the final four holes bogey, double-bogey, par, bogey, which would in-turn give the tournament to Dustin Johnson who was fresh off his U.S. Open win just two weeks ago. Jason Day and Jordan Spieth would finish tied for 3rd at 3 under par, Scott Piercy finished 2nd at 5 under, while Johnson would take the victory at 6 under par. With the win, Johnson receives 550 points in the FedEx Cup standings and will move to first place in the rankings. The Greenbrier Classic was supposed take place next weekend, but that tournament was canceled due to massive flooding. PGA officials declared that The Old White TPC in White Sulphur Springs, WV would be unplayable come time for the tournament. July 14 – 17 we will have the Barbasol Championship at RTJ Trail (Grand National) in Auburn/Opelika, AL. Last years champion: Scott Piercy AND!!!!! We are only two weeks away from The Open Championship which will be held at Royal Troon Golf Club in Ayrshire, Scotland. Last year’s Open champion: Zach Johnson. center_img Danny Simpson is a 4 year graduate from John Carroll University in Cleveland with a BA in Communications and Theatre Arts where he specialized in broadcast and theatre production.

Twelve Orioles thoughts as baseball’s shutdown continues

first_img9. We’re all coping without baseball in different ways, but I just can’t get into the simulated 2020 seasons some websites are using to provide content. I did notice Austin Hays already having six home runs in Baseball-Reference.com’s simulation. That’d be fun.10. Along those lines, it’s strange to think that the Orioles would have already been a tenth of the way through the scheduled 2020 season. They would have been starting their third interleague series of the season on Tuesday, which also would have been weird this early.11. Having watched plenty of old baseball recently, I was reminded Rick Sutcliffe pitched his five-hit shutout in 2 hours, 2 minutes to open Camden Yards 28 years ago. That was quite the Orioles debut, but the 2-0 final didn’t exactly paint an accurate picture of the ballpark’s eventual reputation.12. I’d be embarrassed to admit how many times I’ve watched the Ken Burns “Baseball” documentary in my life, but its original release coincided with the 1994 strike that canceled the World Series. My latest viewing of it has helped amidst uncertainty of when we’ll have live baseball again. With baseball’s shutdown continuing indefinitely due to the coronavirus pandemic, I’ve offered a dozen Orioles thoughts, each in 50 words or less:1. The family of Al Kaline took out a regular obituary in Sunday’s Detroit Free Press, reflecting how unassuming the Hall of Famer nicknamed “Mr. Tiger” was. The Southern High product never forgot his Baltimore roots and collected his 3,000th hit at Memorial Stadium in 1974. What a story and life.2. If you’re yearning for some optimism regarding a 2020 season, watch this Newsday interview with Daniel Kim, who provided insight on what’s happening in South Korea with the KBO and its goal to open the season in early May. A former Mets interpreter, Kim is a good follow on Twitter.3. ESPN has reportedly explored the possibility of securing KBO broadcasting rights. If you’re looking for a potential rooting interest, former Orioles Hyun Soo Kim and Tyler Wilson play for the LG Twins and had strong 2019 seasons.4. So much needs to happen before even considering MLB’s return in any capacity, but the Grapefruit-Cactus league realignment idea sounds more plausible than the Arizona-only “quarantine” concept floated early last week. Going from the AL East to the Grapefruit South division sure wouldn’t offer the rebuilding Orioles any break.5. As a pro wrestling fan who’s watched televised shows without fans in attendance for weeks, I’d say the experience is weird and far from ideal, but I’ve been entertained. If it can work for a product so dependent on crowd interaction, that particular condition for a return plan seems tolerable.6. The retiring Mark Reynolds could be frustrating to watch, but his 2011 blast into the club level (3:35 mark) was one of the more impressive homers at Camden Yards. How frequently he’d leave his feet playing first base was amusing, but he was much better there than at third base.7. Wednesday will mark the 73rd anniversary of Jackie Robinson’s major league debut, but this year also brings the 100th anniversary of the Negro Leagues, which is scheduled to be celebrated this summer. I highly recommend a visit to Kansas City’s Negro Leagues Baseball Museum to any fan.8. Speaking of anniversaries, Cal Ripken registered his 3,000th career hit 20 years ago this Wednesday. Good for him to launch the Strike Out Hunger campaign in conjunction with his new Twitter account. His message to Whit Merrifield — the active streak leader at 247 consecutive games — was fun.last_img read more
