LONNIE KNOWLES WINS NUMBER 9 HAS HE MOVES CLOSER TO THE HALL OF FAME
 

LONNIE KNOWLES

 

CREEPING TOWARD GREATNESS

Lonnie Knowles comes within two Major victories away from becoming the second player to enter into the Hall Of Fame. Lonnie is sitting on 9 regular tournament wins with his performance at Cinco Ranch this Sunday.  To get in the Hall- a player must have two Major wins and 8 regular tournament wins.  This was a typical fashion: Lonnie Knowles win! To keep the big numbers off the scorecard and to make more putts than anyone else in the field. He led this tournament from start to finish with David Blevins right on his heels pushing him all the way. David and Lonnie were actually tied going into 18 and playing in the same group.  David missed the green on his approach and failed to get it up and down. Knowles two-putt par wins him the tournament. There are three Majors left on the schedule along with the Players Championship. Mr. Knowles has the possibility of getting in the Hall this year, but  I think he needs to win the Brittish Open at Wildcat next Sunday to have any realistic chance of getting in. In fact, Lonnie's major record is not very good and that is putting it kindly. He has only finished in the top 10 once in his career and that was at the Masters back in 2013, where he was second to Marc Napier. Here recently he got two last-place finishes in 2017 one at the Masters and the other at the PGA Championship. He has the dubious distinction as the League's-best player to never win a major. He is the Lee Westwood of the HGL. Now can you shake this rather large monkey off your back next Sunday at Wildcat or will you retain the label that you can't win the BIG ONE!.   Lonnie are you reading this, no one has a more regular tournament wins than you but when the lights are shining the brightest you fade into mediocrity. Lonnie have I pushed that inner soul button; that button that makes the impossible, possible; the button that says I will show you!  Congratulations on your Win and Good Luck next week.

JUAN MALAVE

 

DO THE RIGHT THING

This was a very close race in the B flight at Cinco Ranch between 4 players with two shots separating first from fourth.  Steve Sachs who probably has been the best player in the B flight this season so far. Steve did not have his A game, a costly triple bogey on 18 was indicative to his round, giving him a fourth-place finish two shots behind the leader.  Next up in this plethora of winners was Hector Gonzales who finished one shot out of first place. Hector has been bouncing back and forth from the A flight to the B flight and looks like he will be in the B flight in the British Open next week at Wildcat Highlands Course. The last two players, Juan Malave and Jarrod Ballou finished all tied up and would go down to a scorecard playoff.  They even went into the third hole to determine the winner and Jarrod Ballou was declared the winner. Ok, so you wonder where the title- Do the right thing- comes into play. Well listen to this, Monday morning Jarrod Ballou called me and said he should be penalized for giving the wrong score on his scorecard and golf genius. I asked if he was sure about his decision and he said that it is the right thing to do!  So, that is why Juan Malave is the official winner at Cinco Ranch. With that in mind please do your job and handle your responsibility by making sure the scorecard and golf genius is done correctly. Jarrod has set a precedence that I intend to follow.  Very few people will do the honorable thing and have the discipline to do the right thing, so believe me if it's not right you will be penalized. Congratulations, Juan and Jarrod on a job well done.
