Boo Weekley, Looking to Defend
Ahhh, Boo Weekley.
The guy is what some would consider a "character" and others might consider "out of touch with anything that comes within miles of knowledge and reality."
Boo won the Verizon Heritage last year and is playing well today, tied for the lead through 15 holes at eight-under. Nobody really cares how he plays, so why don't we get to who Boo really is.
According to Wikipedia Thomas Brent Weekley got his nickname "Boo" from Yogi Bear's sidekick, Boo Boo Bear.
He was quoted at the British Open last year saying, "It's been rough on the food. Ain't no sweet tea, and ain't no fried chicken."
He boxed an Orangutan when he was 16 at a local country fair and lost.
Boo said he doesn't understand the FedEx Cup system (honestly, who does?) because he was "never good at math."
Also, if you missed it last week, Boo didn't know that the Masters were in April and had never heard of Amen Corner. So, yeah, look for his golf book to come out in the summer of 2010.
