Daydreamt about teeing up at Augusta National?
The DealTeam does too. But until we receive our exclusive invitations in the mail, we’ll settle for Redstone Golf Club – located just 15 minutes from George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston, Texas – which was prepped in 2006 to mimic Augusta.
Seems like just yesterday. Time sure does fly for this ol’ codger!
Since then, the Shell Houston Open has attracted the top players in the world, and in the weeks following the tournament, many wannabe golf stars (like us!).
I could rave about this diamond in the not-so-rough all day long, but I’ll let you decide for yourself with this review of the course on WorldGolf.com.
Besides, it’s time for my afternoon siesta.
Oh, I almost forgot (that’s happening all too often lately!) – how’re you faring in Fantasy Golf? Let us know!
Some good news from the college golf circuit: Darren Wallace, a junior at the University of Washington, walked away with the Pac-10 title yesterday with an 11-under 277.
A perfect putt on the 9th hole gave him an eagle and a 9-shot lead that, despite double bogeys on the 16th and 18th holes, kept him 4 shots ahead of Huskies teammate Nick Taylor.
Washington, who before the Pac-10 championships at Seattle Golf Club had never won a tournament with the team, said, “I was definitely excited to get on the course today. I was definitely feeling a little bit nervous, and it took me a little while to get to sleep last night. But it was more excitement than anything. It was a pretty comfortable lead, and to be able to come out of the gates and extend that lead was key.”
As tournament champion, Washington, who’s ranked No. 5 in the nation, gets automatic berth in the NCAA regionals, which will take place from May 14 to 16.
The DealTeam is rootin’ for ya, Darren. Go get ‘em, kiddo!
