ernie els phil mickelson 100th major

 

First things first, in the above photo, you can’t see that Phil Mickelson and Ernie Els are both wearing shorts. I’ve seen Els in shorts and I’m OK with it. I think today was the first time seeing Phil in them… and I just…it’s weird.

It was both a quiet and major news day on Tuesday at the PGA Championship. On a personal note (because I’m sure you care), I feel really behind because I was initially supposed to arrive on Sunday afternoon and then I pushed it back to Monday, but then because of inclement weather in the NYC area, flights were all delayed or canceled, so I didn’t get in until Tuesday afternoon (and my luggage didn’t arrive) — yep, off to a blazing good start! But all things considered, I can’t complain.

Besides Jonas Blixt’s can’t-miss-red shoes, what stood out on Sunday at the Frys.com Open was that he closed a tournament with conviction.

I took a gamble and tuned in to the Golf Channel yesterday afternoon to see if anything worth watching was happening in the second event of the last-ever “Fall Series” — due to the change in schedule from the calendar year to a fall start — and I saw a cluttered leaderboard with a handful of relative unknowns in the hunt, along with journeyman Tim Petrovic, who started the round seven shots behind 54-hole leader John Mallinger.

Kokrak: the next Dustin Johnson and/or Gary Woodland, et al.

To go from covering a 27-player limited field event in Kapalua to a 144-player full field event in Honolulu is similar to going from tending the bar at Fisher’s Island Golf Club to a club in Times Square on NYE — it’s a rather stark contrast. When I walked over to the practice area at Waialae Country Club on Wednesday, I felt like I’d just walked into a busy street in Manhattan after my quiet vacation in the country. Which isn’t a bad thing (though perhaps a little overwhelming at first). It was nice to be greeted by familiar faces and catch up with those I hadn’t seen since the playoffs and Fall Series.
