It’s that time of the week again! In case you missed it, here’s the Frogger Golf news and notes from around the golfing world!
The Northern Trust:
It’s the first week of playoffs on the PGA Tour. This week we saw some spectacular play from 24-year-old Bryson DeChambeau as he swung away to an 18-under, 4-shot victory over Tony Finau. The win vaulted DeChambeau into the top slot of the FedEx Cup, but he’ll have to keep the solid play rolling if he wants to collect at the end of September.
Dell Technologies Championship:
25 of golf’s best have been axed, and starting on Thursday we’ll see the top 100 compete at TPC Boston in the next leg of the FedEx Cup Playoffs. 5 players are separated by less than 1300 points, so you know we’re already in for a photo finish at the Tour Championship in Atlanta.
Don’t drink and golf:
… A Massachusetts man has lost his thumb after it was bitten off in an altercation between two foursomes. A 47-year-old has been charged with “mayhem” and faces fines and potential jail time. The police report does not state whether alcohol was involved in the incident, but if we’re putting money on it, we’re betting those foursomes were deep in the sauce.
The ex-qb turned announcer/golfer is trying to get his Web.com tour card, apparently not at all phased by his last place finish in the Corales Punta Cana Championship last year. Good luck Tony!
Golf game of the week: Multee Scramble
Teams of 2, 3, or 4 golfers start their round playing from the middle tee box. Pick a best ball format and play so that when a team makes a birdie or better, they move back a tee box, and when it makes a bogey or worse, they move up a tee box. A par by any team keeps them at the same tee box for the next hole.
