Super Bowl & Waste Management Open

Super Weekend is now over. I can’t say I’m sorry to see it go. All the hype and hoopla that seemed to go on all day Sunday was enough to sicken the strongest stomach. And the Giants won. I guess I’d have to say they were the best team on that day, but I still don’t think they deserved to be there in the first place. It should have been the 49ers. But that’s another story.

The Garbage Can Open took my attention away from most of that hoopla stuff leading up to the kickoff at 4:30. And it was certainly entertaining, at least to the winner, Kyle Stanley, not so much to the loser, Spencer Levin.

I call poor Spencer Levin the loser because he almost exactly duplicated what poor Kyle Stanley did the week before at the Farmers Insurance open in California, choking like a neck tourniquet to give up a seven stroke lead on Sunday. What a remarkable turnaround for Kyle Stanley. Now poor Spencer Levin, the giver away of a six stroke lead, will try to do what happy Kyle Stanley did, win the following week at the AT &T Pebble Beach. Good luck with that, Spencer. Tiger will be there and might just show the world that he’s ready to come back to his old form. I hope so. Back for a moment to the Waste Management tourney here in Arizona. Those last four holes are really entertaining. Almost anything can happen, and this year almost anything happened. Levin was still all right after fourteen holes, tied with Stanley at minus 15 with the par-5 fifteenth ahead of him. But the fifteenth has danger all over the place, as Levin demonstrated. He shoved his drive to the right, big bounce off the cart path and into a nasty stand of cholla cactus. He hit it backward out of the cholla, and then choked a 5-iron into the water in front of the green, dropped and hit his fifth shot on the green, missed the putt. And suddenly he’s two strokes behind. And that was all she wrote. An interesting four finishing holes in Scottsdale. And after this thrilling finish, there may be even more people watching next year.
