Teed off

I love Jordan Spieth. If you follow golf, you probably do, too.

If you don’t know who Jordan is, he’s the best thing to happen to golf since Tiger Woods first entered the scene. (And keep your judgments to yourself — he who casts the first stone and all that…)

Jordan became a professional golfer after only one year of college, but no one has ever disparaged his decision to leave school early or lack of education or poor example to our youth.

I think Kentucky basketball coach John Calipari sees the irony…don’t you?

The sporting life

Now that Wimbledon has ended, I am suffering from my annual melancholy.

wimbledon tennisWhat did I watch before it was on ESPN for two solid weeks?

What did I talk about?

What did I obsess about on social media?

Sigh.

Luckily, this year The Open begins this Thursday at St. Andrews in Scotland.

All the experts are picking 21-year old American Jordan Speith to win his third major of the year.

Yeah… I can totally obsess about that.
