Play of the week 1

October 6, 2010

One of our goals in writing this blog is to keep the content relevant to world of golf as it exists today.  In this spirit, we proudly unveil our first regular (or at least whenever we feel like posting it) feature:  The Play of the Week

This week’s monster move comes straight from Wales during the 2010 playing of the Ryder Cup.

Now, given that I’m a die-hard Tiger fan, JK might immediately think that Tiger’s crazy awesome hole-out on 12 tops my list of memorable moments.  Admittedly, on any given Sunday, that would just do it for me.  (133 yards to the bottom of the cup!)

This week, however, top honors go to none other than a Georgia Tech Alum who displayed one of the greatest pieces of gamesmanship that I have witnessed in this great game.  Stewart Cink, with the aid of his trusty peanut butter and jelly sandwich, took a full 2 minutes and 20 seconds to knock back an easy 30 footer (HA!) and ice out Rory McIlroy and Graeme McDowell.  Even his playing partner (and fellow yellow jacket), Matt Kuchar, seemed confused by the delay.

Here’s to you, Stu!  Way to mess with those Euros.  We’ll get them next time, Boys.

    Of course, your mention of Cink brings me back to the British Open victory at Turberry. As cool as the other side of the pillow, Cink drained the 12-footer to force the playoff with Watson. Definitely worthy of an honorable mention. Sadly, we probably wont have too many of these until next year, since the golf season is now over. Well-stated, though: gamesmanship like this, I have never seen in golf, but, then again, I don’t watch a whole lot of match play. Still, we Yellow Jackets have done well: Cink and Kuchar playing very well; looking for Bryce Molder to pick it up next year; and, as always, I await the comeback of David Duval.
