Jordan Spieth----It is going to be a great weekend at the Player's Championship. Martin Kaymer is in the lead starting play, by one stroke over Jordan Spieth.
It will be fun to watch how Spieth handles this. He certainly at 20 years old, is one great talent and my prediction to break all of Jack and Tiger's golf records.
But he needs to start right now on path to stardom, this would be a terrific win for him, against what is always considered the field in golf. Fun, fun times are ahead for this guy, but can he close the deal on Sunday..
Eastmoreland---It is nice to know that a publication that I have so much respect for, Golfweek, has the course where I grew up on, Eastmoreland, ranked as the 45th best municipal golf course in the country. Eastmoreland has the beauty and has the respect of all golfers to be ranked that high.
LPGA In Portland---The big news about the LPGA in Portland is that there is no news at present. Rumors persist that the tournament will soon have a title sponsor, but so far nothing has been announced and it just less than three months until tee time.
It will also be interesting to see if the tournament will be back at Columbia Edgewater, which is also not official at this time and the sponsoring group TGF has no contract with at present.
This is an important issue for many people, as this is the most popular longest running golf event in the Northwest and true treasure, run by a great group Tournament Golf Foundation.
Hopefully we will see some movement on this soon, time is of the essence to get a title sponsor and to get a golf course.
