Here in Toronto the weather is cold and there is ice on the ground.
In Hawaii, apparently, it is a whole other world and the PGA Tour returns this weekend after its 15 minute break . I was speaking with my brother about this recently and he voiced his wish that the tour actually shut down for a bit. After all, he said, the season doesn’t really begin until the Tour’s best hit the green grass of Georgia. While I disagree with my brother on a lot of matters, here’s one where we see eye-to-eye. Let’s have some sort of lay-off. Without it, it sure seems like there is a lot of golf not worth watching.
However, this weekend’s tournament at Kapalua, a grand Coore and Crenshaw golf course, is one worth tuning in to. As the inimitable Geoff Shackleford points out in his story of golf courses on the tube this year, there are some interesting tracks upcoming.
Bring on the U.S. Am and Merion! What a course.
