Commentary, sarcasm and snide remarks from a Florida resident of over thirty years. Being a glutton for punishment is a requirement for residency here. Who am I? I've been called a moonbat by Michelle Malkin, a Right Wing Nut by Daily Kos, and middle of the road by Florida blog State of Sunshine. Tell me what you think.

The July 4th Knucklehead Marathon Part Twenty-Four

We have one July 4th Knucklehead coming back for a second helping. Our twenty-fourth winner is Palm Beach Post sports writer Alan Tays. He gets the award for the following.

Mexico's Ochoa would like to be in that position. She knows one of the first steps is to win her first major. Her best chance came at the 2005 Open at Cherry Hills, where she was three under par for her final round before hitting her 18th-hole tee shot into the water, making a quadruple-bogey and finishing four shots behind winner Birdie Kim.
Tays again shows he knows nothing about the LPGA tour.

1- Ochoa's best chance to win a major was the 2006 Nabisco where she lost in a playoff to Karrie Webb. A sudden death playoff beats a tie for the lead on 18(which was playing like a par 5 for players in 2005) any time at the US Open.

2- Ochoa was not three under par for her final round before 18 on Sunday in 2005. She was 2 under, because she shot a final round 72. Cherry Hills was playing as a par 70 that year. Birdie Kim won at +3 283. Mr. Tays apparently can't be bothered to fact check.

Just more sloppy golf journalism and I'll keep exposing these journalists fools as long as the LPGA continues to give people like Tays press credentials, while I can't get them. I know ten times more about the LPGA than Tays does. Four dumb mistakes in two articles over two days makes Palm Beach Post sportswriter Alan Tays both our eleventh and twenty-fourth Knucklehead of the Day.
