Where's Matty G ?


For you Golf Digest readers, you've probably seen Matty G's columns in the rag. Here's a link to his blog and a very interesting story (second post on the current page) about vandalism at Chambers Bay. Beautiful place that will be home to the 2010 US Amateur and 2015 US Open.


There is one lone tree on the course and some knucklehead vandal went Jacko doing his Paul Bunyon impression. To quote Hank Jr...."I'd like to spit some Beechnut in that dudes eyes and ....."


You can see from the pics, they're in the process of slowing the shock and providing support. The experience I've had with tree injuries and rehab leads me to believe this 'ol girl will pull thru.

RP,

I just had another update from Chambers Bay. No new news to report. Thank you for your continued interest and support of the blog. I'm off to Minnesota next week. There's four public courses in the top 60 on Golf Digest's list of America's 100 Greatest Public Courses within a few hours of Duluth. I'm going to fit in a fishing lesson by a cat who signs his e-mails, "Walleyedan". I'll write about it in the August issue.

"Walleyedan"....wonder if he knows "CatfishKenny" from my old stompin grounds in Toadholler. Can't wait to hear about the Duluth trip, bordering Lake Superior, there's bound to be some scenic holes.
