Gary



  • And the hits just keep on coming for KU fans…

    Miles and Long. McCormack and Enaruna. Embiid.

    Now the latest: Gary Woodland tests positive for COVID, a couple of days after he missed the cut at The Players.

    Is someone up there testing us for Lent ?



  • @nwhawkfan I saw that! Thought the same🤬



  • Finally, some good news. Gary’s put three good rounds together at the tournament in Charlotte, and is tied with Rory McIlroy in second place going into Sunday’s final round. Only two shots back of the leader.

    It’s been a long dry spell for him…no wins since his 2019 US Open victory. A good time to get his game back, what with the PGA Championship just a couple of weeks away.



  • Think he’s been fighting an injury, maybe a hip. Trying not to have surgery. Don’t quote me! Love the guy. Did you see where his good buddy Amy was the first Down’s syndrome college athlete to make a ? League tourney? Pretty cool whatever it was. She’s an awesome athlete and a great inspiration and friend to Gary and the golf world



  • Tied for the lead with Rory midway thru the final round. Just keep it in the fairway and make a few putts.



  • Must’ve jinxed him…a couple of bogeys on the back nine left him at even par for the round. Rory wins…another guy who hadn’t won since 2019.

    Still, Gary’s fifth-place finish is his best since that Open win.



  • @nwhawkfan I’m sure he’s disappointed, but it’s a huge improvement. Now he needs to put 4 days together. Go Gary.



  • Amy is coming up on cbs evening news any moment!



  • @Crimsonorblue22 I saw the CBS piece on Amy last evening. It was heartwarming!



  • Gary’s back on the leaderboard again, this time in a major. 7th place, midway thru the PGA Championship.

    Just 3 shots back of the leaders despite shooting even par on a tough, windy ocean course.



  • Still in the mix after a really bizarre third round. He shot even par again…this time with six birdies and three double bogeys.

    Now tied for seventh, five shots behind Mickelson, who threatened to run away with the lead before coming back to the pack on the back nine. Phil’s obviously the sentimental favorite, especially when you consider he’s twice as old as some of the players in the field.

    Gary needs to go pretty low on Sunday and get some help from the guys in front of him.



  • The wheels fell off in his final round. Shot 5 over par, for a finish of +3 for the tournament. Disappointing, but at least he’s been trending in the right direction lately.

    Congrats to Lefty. Quite an accomplishment (especially for “a man his age”). His biggest accomplishment may have been getting through that mob scene on the 18th hole!



  • @nwhawkfan he’s been starting off well then going downhill. One day…
