You've heard me ramble this week about John Smoltz getting a sponsors invite into the Nationwide Tour event, where he posted rounds of 84-87 to miss the cut by, and get ready for this, 27 shots. ALMOST!
It appears that the only thing Smoltz did wrong this week was play on the wrong professional golf tour!
Down in San Antonio, the Futures Tour (Nationwide for the LPGA) hosted the Symetra Classic, and the first round played so tough that 55 of the 142 players in the field failed to break 80! Even worse than that? If you had shot 80 in the first round, you would have only been nine shots back, since the lowest score of the day was a 71!
So, all John Smoltz needed was to be born with a vagina, and be struggling to make ends meet as a professional golfer hoping to one day make it on the LPGA and voila, he would have fit right now.
Obviously the tough scores were caused by some nasty, and peculiar winds that have swept through Texas lately. Players said it was gusty all day at the Dominion Country Club, and scores improved in the second round as the winds died down.
But still, one can dream, John. One can only dream!
