By Jordan Farr aka. Golf Girl Junior
my normal Thursday update last week. There are a couple of reasons for this:
1) Thursday was my birthday and all the celebrating distracted me.
2) Golf Girl zipped off to Vegas without me and I was... irked.
3) I was diligently working on a multitude of admin projects and just didn't have a minute for the Thursday post.
Anyway, it's a combination of the above and I figured I'd catch up today.
Here in CT the weather is gorgeous for golf right now, and the fall folliage provides a backdrop of orange, gold and crimson. It's lovely, but I'm having more and more trouble finding my golf balls... particularly after swings that sent them flying into the woods. The fallen leaves are now ankle-deep and they seem to see golf balls as their prey to devour. This is where my recycled balls come in handy.
As an arch-beginner in the game of golf, everything is fascinating to me, so when GolfGirl suggested I create our weekly list of notable links (which BTW we haven't done in a couple of weeks) I had a lot of trouble narrowing it down... but here's what I came up with:
Frys.com Open has got to be the one he took of a mysterious golfer hidden beneath an umbrella. There are some great shots with winner Rocco Mediate too.
You probably know John Raser from all the great social media initiatives he's undertaken. He's got a great new contest going on now with 59Golf.
24 year old Korean golfer, Kyung-Tae Kim, is the Japan Open champion after a stunning final round of 64 saw him win the event by two shots.
The top five women golfers in the world will battle it out in Asia this week at the Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia. They'll be fighting for World Number One among other things.
After her maiden LPGA win Beatriz Recari is looking towards the 2011 Solheim Cup.
... I may sneak a few more in later today. Catch you later.
