It's Those Blasted NXT's!


First off, to my hordes of adoring fans, sorry for the absence. Full-time work seems to hinder golf posting. Nevertheless, all is well. But Ian Macallister (left), John Cleese's technology-hating character from the Titleist NXT commercials, might not be after a stat that came out today that I still can't believe is true:

Through the first two rounds of the Bridgestone Invitational At Firestone, Rory Sabbatini is in first place. No, that's not the stat. So far Rory's driving average for the week is 320.0 yards. No, that's not the stat either. It's the fact that despite averaging 320 yards, he's only in 18th PLACE in driving distance for the week! I quit.
