    Pokes in The Open

    C Smith has been in the hunt for a number of majors lately and got his win. He has a lot more in him. Driver can lose a major but putters win one.

    Pokes in The Open

    Its not your call or my call. Caddy and travel are big time expenses for a golfer and he may want to take care of his mom and dad too, he grew up on a muni not a country club.

    Pokes in The Open

    Liv doesn't bother me. it just means more golf to watch and these guys are making their best career for their families first and foremost the whole golf history stuff is over rated compared to making their best living. I do agree we need to promote golf for kids but their family and career...

    Pokes in The Open

    Hovland, he is a class guy who gets all there is out of his game. Awesome he stil lives in Stillwater I like Clark too he had a rough break when his mom died while he was at OSU. Gooch is a fav of mine too as he picked OSU over OU. He won the longest Drive t 10 years old in Durant in a fund...

    Hero World Challenge

    PGA Tour has a great long article about Talor Gooch. I know a lot about him but learned many things. I recommend it to any golf fans.

    Hero World Challenge

    He does last I heard bought a home there and Austin Eckroat lived in his home while Austin was attending OSU. I understand that Austin's parents owned a house in Stillwater where Viktor and Austin lived during that period. VIktor plays at Karsten Creek with the golf team and practices there. He...

I played one jr tournament in OKC at Lincoln Park, Mark Hayes was in the group behind us, we would walk off a green and this little guy would hit every damn green as I recall it...

    Hero World Challenge

    I always wondered what happened to that course. I think this was when I was old enough to drive but in high school. Would have been 1964 to 1966. I spent most of my time in Houston after OSU Chem engineering. so know the gulf coast courses history better. Forgot to mention the Katy area course...

    Hero World Challenge

    I've never worked inside the ropes at a big PGA event however long long long ago a PGA event was held at a golf course owned by Waco Turner of Marietta Oklahoma. It was held same week as the tournament of champions in Las Vegas. There were no ropes nor gallery so I followed Bruce Crampton and...

    Jim Knowles to ohio state official

    He will have many four and five stars players at tOSU vs none in OSU defense. Talent level is a very big factor but so is attitude and team work and willingness to learn and use what they are taught. I think our team excelled at those last factors, the jury is out for his new pupils time will...

    Jim Knowles to ohio state official

    You think the kids dont know the talent and money differential the real OSU vs tOSU? I bet they do so nothing they dont now already. We both benefited from Coach Knowles being here.

    Jim Knowles to ohio state official

    College football is all about eyes balls and money it can provide for the program/school. Title means little when pay scales for the same title can very from $0.8M/yr to 2M/yr. Knowles got a big time promotion to tOSU and he did it with our success. He has proven he can do more with less which...

    Gotta love this guy. One of the great cowboy grads in history. Not only strongest start as a cowboy golf grad but bought his first house in Stillwater to be with the poke golfers rather than Fla like most other pros. A cowboy thru and thru

    Official Game Thread: Baylor vs. Oklahoma State [Big XII Championship Game]

    My biggest disappoint from the Saturday night loss to Baylor is we were on a national stage and did not show our best, ie that which we did all year to get us there. I think the defense did show their best but with the early interceptions they got put in with the offense to box of a team who...

    VIktor is quiickly becoming the most prolific tour winner of OSU alums. Tway had 8 and mahan has 6 so VIktor's four on the PGA tour, ignoring his Euro win, Hovland at 24 is way ahead of any other Cowboy golfers pace.

    Official Game Thread: Baylor vs. Oklahoma State [Big XII Championship Game]

    How we got into this game as many think we are. 11-2 with a team not expected to do better than .500 and beating OU is a good season. We did not look good in this game, could it be in part due to the Baylor defense?. It bites how close we came after an embarrassing 21 to 3 start. Almost another...
