He loves him some links golf don't he.
I always hated him because I was a Nicklaus fan and he stole 3 majors from Jack with absolutely stellar play in 2 cases (77 at Turnberry and 78 at the Masters) and one miraculous chip ('82 Open).
If not for coming down with the yips later in his career he...

If I read it right, Trevino did it twice from 68-72 he won 4 and from 71-74 he won 4.

Half the game is played on the defensive end of the court. I think we all tend to judge basketball players by their offensive prowess but you can carve a niche even at the highest level if you excel on the defensive end.
Garret could always finish well on fast breaks too and was a decent ball ha...

[quote]Personally, I'd just like to see more out of him on the court because he just seems real passive on the bench. [/quote]
I think that's valid. I could not help but wonder why some of our players kept making some of the same fundamental/correctable mistakes over and over last year.

I've watched some of those 60's replays. It was almost mandatory to run twice up the middle on first and second down, and either throw or run a draw on third down.
Heck, '64 was just a few years removed from Vaught and Dietzel getting a lead and punting on 3rd down....

The back shoulder throw has become such a go to offensive weapon that's almost unstoppable. Size and length gives you a better chance, but it's still very hard to defend...almost impossible if executed properly....
