PODS

Well, well, well. Being a "great blog mind", i was thinking to myself all weekend how i would start this weeks blog off. Nothing was really coming to mind, until I remembered Nick Faldo a.k.a. a big dumbass who clearly knows nothing about golf telling me that Matt Kuchar was gonna win this weekend, HA! Here's this Faldo guy giving me shit because i picked Luke Donald (2nd), but he was gonna pretend he had a great PGA tour mind and pick Matt Kuchar (T43 or some crap.....what he clearly did down his leg Sunday) So "Nick" who's your pick this week???

Now that i got that off my chest, let's talk some golf. This year's Honda Classic was a definite one to remember. For the first time since 2004 "The Big Easy" Ernie Els got back in to the win column on the PGA Tour. Being the top ranked player in the field, his ath to victory was not as easy as some might think. With former Honda Classic Champion Luke Donald and former PGA tour winner Mark Calcavecchia hot on his heels all day Sunday, Ernie knew he would have to play a mistake free final round. With a final round 67 and a little case of "Calc" pooping down his leg on 15, Els let the field know he is getting back to where he belongs. Did i mention that Matt Kuchar finished T43?? Just want to make sure everyone knew that.

One player i was extremely impressed with over the week was the young Australian Matt Jones, whoooooooooooo??? This was my first thought. This kid has now made 6 of 6 cuts this year, he's got a great swing and a whole lot of upside. Being in contention for the first time in his career clearly got to him Sunday, but when this kid learns how to close your gonna be hear alot from this guy.

This week the Tour heads to the Innisbrook Resort and Golf Club for the 2008 PODS Championship. This weeks sponsor got me to thinking if "Nick Faldo" guy just shoved himself in a POD after that ridiculous prediction from last week. Anyways, this years field on paper looks to be one of the strongest of the year to date. This year like every year at the copperhead course will come down to who's hitting the ball the best this week. This course with its tree lined fairways is all about finding fairways if your going to score well, and placing the ball in the right spot on the greens to give yourself the best chance at birdies. My pick to win this week is Floridian Joe Durant. If he can get the flat stick rolling, I look for him to have a good week. And I'm gonna have an honor mention pick, and that is the big swede Carl Pettersen.

Where is Nick Faldo this week?? Did he crawl into a hole and not come out??

Wow, I was way off with Boo Weekley last week. Damn you, Boo!

I'm looking for Els to have a good week this week since he's coming off a solid win last week. It looks like he just might have his old, smooth, easy swing back.

Sorry, I was in the hole I dug for myself last week, trying to find some rope to get out. Anyway, no picks from me since it's Friday already. I am just honored to have 1.5 paragraphs devoted to me. Thanks! BTW, the PODS is no where near one of the strongest fields of the year, even if you look at year to date. I am not going to dig too deep but they have 3 out of the top 20 in the world, even the tournement horse VJ Singh is sitting this one out. Also, I am glad that you are riding such a hot pick and can dish the sht so much, didn't see you busting anyone up after you HOT PICK of Hunter Mahan at the Northern Trust, 31st place case you were wanting to know. I guess not even God Slam gets em all right...

Damn it, OK so 5 out of the Top 20, still going to go out on a limb and say this is a middle of the road field in terms of strength of players. Wish had more time to be a stats whore like WWWW.

For the record, Carl Pettersen T-23 and Smokin Joe Durant MC. Great picks buddy! Remember to pat yourself on the back for those in your next post.
