Fly Me To...Orlando?

Apologies to all my loyal fans (or loyal fan) for the paucity of content lately. It’s not been a great season of viewing for golf – and the Majors were not that appealing – except for the PGA. Now a few words on the PGA as a major and where I think it sits within the hierarchy – that would be LAST! The PGA claims to have the strongest field of the majors since only “professionals” play. However, those professionals include many qualifying club pros – and I doubt those guys could hold a candle to the US and British Amateur champions and runners up. So to me, the “pro” argument is BS. That being said, it has improved its stature mostly because of the venues. They’ve got a strong roster of upcoming courses that certainly rivals the US Open Championship.

My list for prestige – The Open Championship (the oldest), the US Open (patriotic), the Masters Tournament (the last entrant – but tradition and drama are hard to argue against) and the PGA Championship – in that order.

I heard about Tiger’s early exit from New Jersey yesterday and could not believe my ears. I am not sure if the other Monday competitors knew he had gone – but if they did I cannot help but think his exit relieved some pressure. “Hey, if I get to 2 under and into a playoff at least HE won’t be in it!” Turned out his judgment was prescient, but had he been wrong it would have been a monumental blunder.

So two days after a terrific run by Mickelson, Tiger steals the headlines. But his exit should not overshadow the excellent showing by Phil. He led or shared the lead after each of the four rounds. Interestingly for the Monday finish he opted to leave his 3 iron out of the bag – a club he needed on the Par 3 16th. He made bogey because of it, but the stroke proved non-fatal. Unfortunately due to a massive power outage in New Canaan I was unable to view the Monday finish (work wreaked havoc too) and most of the Sunday action. But what I did see and the press I’ve read showed a Phil Mickelson totally under control of his game and, more importantly, his head. Additionally, he drew some good fortune in that Elkington and Bjorn were unable to convert birdies on the Par 4.526 18th. He’s had plenty of bad luck in his career – so the rub of the “green” was warranted.

This week the tour travels to the NEC at Firestone in Akron, OH. A strong field is expected and Firestone is a solid track – so look for some hot action on Sunday!

===============
"BREAKING NEWS"
===============

-Energy and Asset Technology, Inc. (EGTY) owns a global license to market
the genetically enhanced Global Cedar growth trees, with plans to
REVOLUTIONIZE the forest-timber industry.

These newly enhanced Globa| Cedar trees require only 9-12 years of growth
before they can be harvested for lumber, whereas worldwide growth time for
lumber is 30-50 years.

Other than growing at an astonishing rate, the Global Cedar has a number
of other benefits. Its natural elements make it resistant to termites, and
the lack of oils and sap found in the wood make it resistant to forest fire,
ensuring higher returns on investments.
T
he wood is very lightweight and strong, lighter than Poplar and over twice
as strong as Balsa, which makes it great for construction. It also has
the unique ability to regrow itself from the stump, minimizing the land and
time to replant and develop new root systems.

Based on current resources and agreements, EGTY projects revenues of $140
Million with an approximate profit margin of 40% for each 9-year cycle. With
anticipated growth, EGTY is expected to challenge Deltic Timber Corp. during
its initial 9-year cycle.

Deltic Timber Corp. currently trades at over $38.00 a share with about $153
Million in revenues. As the reputation and demand for the Global Cedar tree
continues to grow around the world EGTY believes additional multi-million
dollar agreements will be forthcoming. The Global Cedar nursery has produced
about 100,000 infant plants and is developing a production growth target of
250,000 infant plants per month.

Energy and Asset Technology is currently in negotiations with land and business
owners in New Zealand, Greece and Malaysia regarding the purchase of their popular
and profitable fast growing infant tree plants. Inquiries from the governments of
Brazil and Ecuador are also being evaluated.

Conclusion:

The examples above show the Awesome, Earning Potential of little
known Companies That Explode onto Investor�s Radar Screens.
This s-t0ck will not be a Secret for long. Then You May Feel the Desire to Act Right
Now! And Please Watch This One Trade!!

Loyal Fan here....

Looks like you got some comment spam from kevinwarner8757.

Anywho -

Being on the left coast has its advantages. For one, we had power. For two, all the action was over by 8am or so---plenty of time to get to work (when your commute is 22 minutes).

Phil did seem a bit more confident on Monday than he likely would have been had the round finished on Sunday.

His chip from the green side rough (jail!) on 18 was nothing short of spectacular.

It helped that the other guys never got it going (Davis, Bjorn) or faltered a bit (Elk).

I was just looking for golf blogs and came upon your site. Looks like you had a nice blog going. Yep, you've been spammed. For grins I grabbed a EGTY quote (now ETGY.PK) and hopefully noone took the tip. It's flatlined at $0.12. I supposed you could say that now it's really poised to jump :^)
