KSU CATS on PGA Tour
« on: March 08, 2013, 08:40:28 AM »
From this point on I will be providing updates for our :ksu: that are currently competing on the PGA Tour.

Robert Streb (KSU 2009) is currently 84th in the Fedex Cup rankings. His best finish is T16 at Humana. He sits 94 on the PGA Tour money list with $167,664 thru six events. He was paired with Tiger Woods last week in the final round of the Honda Classic, and whooped Tiger's ass. This week he is playing in the Puerto Rico Open, shot -1 first round, and is even thru 8 holes in round 2.

Aaron Watkins (KSU 2004) has yet to make a cut on Tour this season. However, he shot -2 in the first round yesterday at the Puerto Rico Open, and is currently -3 thru 9 holes and T15 in round two.

Most high handicappers slice the ball. I would advise said cappers to go to the range, put a ball down, and point the logo of the ball just outside their right foot (for right handed players). Then focus on hitting the logo. This will get the club coming in to impact from the inside and should produce a straighter ball flight, and probably more distance.

Haven't played at all the last two summers.  Was thinking this week that this is the summer to get back on that drunk cart of a horse.

Always a good idea to get back on that horse..

Perhaps a goEMAW charity golf tournament  :sdeek:

Round two is in the books for Streb and Watkins, both did WORK.

Streb had seven birdies, no bogeys, five of those birdies coming on the back nine. He is currently -8 and tied for 7th.

Watkins had five birdies, no bogeys and finished at -7, tied for 9th.

We have a possible all  :ksu: pairing for round 3 tomorrow.

The leader, cow poke Peter Uihlein is at -12.

Heading into the final round Streb was seven shots back. He smoked the front nine, shooting -4. He sits in a tie for seventh at -14, four shots back of the lead. Streb also gave a shout out to all the peeps partying at FPD yesterday

Happy fake party's day to everybody in Aggieville from Puerto Rico! #greenbeer #greeneggsandham
 
Watkins is currently -3 for his final round and -11 for the tournament with one to play. He's looking for his best finish on Tour this year.

Solid performance for both our  :ksu: Golf Cats on Tour.

Mr Streb just barley missed his first top 10 on the PGA Tour with a tie for 11th. He banked a cool $80,500 for his finish and moved up to 84th in the Fedex Cup rankings (Top 125 qualify for Fedex Cup playoffs and earn PGA Tour status for another year).

Watkins finished 30th and banked just under $20k.

Payouts were decreased for this event because of the World Golf Championships taking place at the same time at Doral, which Tiger won yesterday.

Next up for Streb is the Tampa Bay Championship at Innisbrook Resort, Copperhead course.

Watkins has an off week I believe.

Streb and Watkins both rock the Powercat on their bag. Streb wears purple for every final round.

Good morning gentlemen. Doberman_CATS is headed to Veeeeegassss this afternoon, figured it might be a good idea to leave the weekly tip now than after I start  :drink:


This week I will walk you through the steps for a proper grip. You'll need a sharpie, and an old glove.

Step 1 - Put glove on, take the sharpie and make a line going from middle of index finger to just below your pinkie like so:


Step 2 - Grab your club and align the grip with the markings on your glove, then close your hand.

Step 3 - When you position your right hand, the handle should rest across the base of your right pinkie to the top crease of your index finger. This sets your right palm to the side and a little on top of the club. Your index finger wraps around the handle.

Step 4 - After your grip is complete, get into the setup position and look where the V's formed by your thumb and index fingers in both hands are pointing. If they are pointed in between the right side of your face and your right shoulder, you are good to go. Take 50 practice swings without hitting a ball to get used to this feeling.

Work on this and last week's tip for two weeks, you'll see results.

After missing the cut at the Arnold Palmer, Streb bounced back with a solid T22 last week at the Shell Houston Open, banking $60k. He's sitting pretty on the Fedex Cup list, keeps this up he should be exempt next year.

This week he's at the Valero Texas Open
