NEC What?

Well being born and breed in Akron, I’ve gone to the NEC Invitational multiple times. In fact, I’m going this afternoon and Sunday, so I’ll be able to figure out the nonsense that is the NEC Invitational this year.

The tournament this year has gotten the similar treatment that most of the golf tournaments I played in this year. Lots and Lots of rain. Thus, the 7300+ yard Firestone Country Club’s South Course is probably playing nearly 8000 yards. The rough supposedly is nearly 4-5 inches deep and if you do not keep it in the fairway, forget about hitting it onto the green. (remember Phil on #3 the first day).

What I’m most dissapointed about this year is the fact that this tournament was supposed to be the “Changing of the Guard”. Tiger was supposed to continue his “slump” and fall out of his #1 spot in the World Rankings. However, Tiger is currently in 3rd place 4 back of newly elected Ryder Cupper Stewart Cink. But Vijay, Ernie, and Phil are playing like a middle of the pack high school team. Ernie is tied for 72nd after shooting 72-77. Vijay is T64 (73-73). Phil is T61 (70-75). Obviously the course cannot be playing that difficult if Cink is -9. CBS and Tiger will probably be showing the “Coming of Tiger” and how he always wins at Firestone!

Anyways, I’ll be out there today and will post later this evening about why I feel Firestone South is winning this week!!
