Brandel Chamblee is really going to try to qualify for the Senior Open. Does he have a chance?

Published

Could we be treated to the ultimate in Brandel Chamblee? A Being John Malkovich-type situation in which Chamblee analyzes Chamblee’s performance in a tournament?

We’re a step closer to that situation, as Chamblee doubled down on his pledge to try his hand at qualifying for the Senior Open Championship at St. Andrews.

Chamblee told Golf Channel’s Will Gray that he’ll compete in the 18-hole qualifier, July 23.

“My game’s pretty good. When I’ve played, I’ve played some really good golf,” Chamblee said. “I’m looking forward to it for a lot of different reasons. I want to try to get back into competitive golf, and I would love to have another week at St. Andrews.”

He’s going to take a lap around the Old Course next week with his wife, “Morning Drive” host Bailey Mosier.

Mosier, it turns out, might be Chamblee’s looper.

“It’s kind of up to her, really. But if she really wants to caddie, she can certainly do it,” Chamblee said. “But just imagine the winds blowing 30 mph, imagine it raining, imagine it being cold. You’ve got rain suits and umbrellas and towels, you know, and it’s really not that much fun.”

The Golf Channel analyst missed the cut at the Open at St. Andrews in 1995. What do you think the odds are he does so again, should he qualify? Let us know!

    He not only qualified, he won his qualifier (actually it was a 3 way tie for first) with a 69! Honestly, I didn’t think the guy had
    a chance.

    He will never qualify. He drops his head way too much on the downswing.

    He just wants to go to Scotland so he can blow another goat.

    I hope Chamblee, the dotted son of Thurston Howell III qualifies so he can miss the cut by a wide margin.

    More power to him. Golf Channel should get Tiger Woods to analyze his performance.

    I can think of a dozen or more tour players who should be called up to “analyze” Brandel’s play, should he make it past Q.

    He better qualify or a credibility issue will come to the forefront that not even Golf Channel can hide.

      The fact is he’s better than roughly 99.8% of all golfers. And can probably outscore any of his fellow hosts on the Golf Channel. I’d still give him credit as being an expert. Even though he’s cringe-worthy at times.

    I’ll be rooting for him for the simple fact I wanna see bailey mosier hold a wood.

Former caddie Steve Williams raves about Tiger Woods’ victory at the 2019 Masters

Published

on

Tiger Woods’ ex-caddie, Steve Williams, has spoken in glowing terms concerning the 43-year-old’s latest victory at the Masters, a win which Williams believes will “re-energize” the sport.

The New Zealander, who was speaking to ESPN’S Bob Harig, admitted that though he doesn’t watch the sport regularly on TV anymore, he made an exception last weekend, and feels how his former boss’ victory at Augusta National will do wonders for the game.

“Now that Tiger has come right back there again, winning a major championship, possibly putting Jack’s (Nicklaus) record in play again … it just re-energizes the game . . .  It’s absolutely awesome.

He’s the only guy who can energize the game like that. All those kids who were watching had to think it was fantastic. And so what he’s done is a remarkable achievement. It’s so positive.”

Though Williams and Woods’ high profile split in 2011 was less than amicable, Williams credited the 15-time major champion’s “amazing achievement” in coming back from the point where he was on the verge of retiring to claim his fifth green jacket down to “pure guts and hard work.”

“Given the fact that two years ago he stated that he was unlikely to play competitive golf again, or was seriously doubting it – he wouldn’t just say that in jest, There would have been a lot of truth to it. For him to actually come back full cycle to win a major championship… it’s just an incredible story.

 It’s an amazing achievement of pure guts and hard work for him and just a true indication of what he is made of. It proves again what an amazing athlete he is. It’s just an amazing achievement.”

Williams also believes that the passing of golfing legend Arnold Palmer in 2016 had a significant impact on Woods, and while writing for the Australian site The Players Voice, the New Zealander stated

“I’m thinking that when Arnold passed away there was a realisation in Tiger that golf had lost a guy who was the most popular player ever. It was about a year after Arnold died that Tiger started his comeback after his back surgery and I think he may have decided that with his second chance he wanted to be remembered the way Arnold was remembered. I do think the passing of Arnie had a change in that respect.”

Steve Williams caddied for Woods between 1999 and 2011 and was on the 43-year-old’s bag for 13 of his 15 major championship victories.

Couple to name son after Tiger Woods after husband wins a bet with his wife

Published

on

Tiger Woods’ victory at last week’s Masters had a significant impact in the sporting world, and its meaning will forever be remembered in the household of a Dallas couple who are set to name their child after the 15-time major champion.

Trey Little, a lifelong golf fan, drew up a contract the week of the tournament (as you do), which stated that “If Tiger Woods wins the Masters this week, I (father) get to have the option of naming our son (coming September 2019) Tiger Little.” which his wife, Denise, signed.

Speaking to the NY Post, Little talked about the reaction of his wife and himself when they realized that Woods was about to win the event last Sunday.

“On hole 18, we realized, ‘Wow, he’s really going to pull this thing off. This whole thing started almost as a joke, then it turned into something really real, really quick.”

The name may not be the easiest to live up to, but with the child’s middle name to be Julian, Trey has all the bases covered, joking “He could always go by T.J.”
