|15 hours 56 min ago||Harbaugh at the 7th hole|

Jim hangs with Kenny G and the Cable Guy

Link to 2 Harbaugh interviews.
|16 hours 7 min ago||They showed JH again on CBS||
Called him Big Jim… the man who’s getting a lot of love for Michigan.
JH hit what looked like a great shot on 17. It had a beautiful trajectory. But was a bit short of the green and ended in the gargantuan front-left sand trap.
JH got interviewed afterward by Clint Eastwood and Jim Nantz, who noted:
Harbaugh said: It’s a joy.
|16 hours 25 min ago||A lawyer explains on SI why the story is relevant||
to the current investigation of possible HGH use by Manning and the attempt to discredit accusers.
|19 hours 7 min ago||CBS just showed Harbaugh||
They noted "Head coach of University of Michigan....he's really popular around here.".
They said his handicap is 11 now, which is really good for somebody that hasn't had any time to play golf.
|19 hours 47 min ago||Harbaugh should reach #17 (televised link)||
about 3.20 pm.
|20 hours 8 min ago||Yes, it was disappointing||
The problem is that hole #10 coverage now competes with both #17 and coverage of featured group(s) on other holes. Also, they seem to be showing almost entirely the pros, not celebs. Maybe the 3pm CBS coverage will show more celeb shots.
|20 hours 54 min ago||Harbaugh should reach #10 (televised on link)||
about 2.25-2.30 pm ET
|21 hours 26 min ago||maybe he made Sarah lift weights with the team||
to prepare her
|21 hours 51 min ago||Now 3 under after 3 !!!!!!!||
(four straight birdies, counting the 18th yesterday).
Team is -10, only 2 shots back of the cut line.
Jim needs to give a big tip to his caddie, Sarah !
|22 hours 13 min ago||Sports stars playing at the Pebble Beach Pro Am||
Steve Young and Jim Harbaugh are the two former NFL stars.
I did not realize it, but Harbaugh has now played in the Celebrity group at least 3 times now: 2012, 2013 and 2016.
|22 hours 28 min ago||Harbaugh needs a lot of help from his caddie, Sarah today||
The greens at Pebble are notoriously tough to read. Hopefully, Sarah has been studying them closely.
JH may be comparing her performance to that of his caddie in 2012, QB Alex Smith.
|22 hours 55 min ago||He is probably doing well but he's not -14 net||
Only the best score counts (the actual score for the pro or the net, handicap-adjusted score for the amateur). So, if on a given hole the pro has a lower score than the amateur, the pro's score counts. But if the pro is +7, and the team -7, Harbaugh probably contributed to the team much more. eg I think he had a net birdie on the 18th hole on both days. His partner, I think, bogied both holes. Also, the fact that the team is ranked about #71 and the pro #148 suggests that the amateur is contributing much more.
|23 hours 22 min ago||Thanks. Now noted above||
But for Th-Fri coverage, you needed to subscribe to Golf Channel, I think. Today, I imagine that is so too. The alternative is to get a free 7 day trial of PGA golf channel (link above), but you probably need to get an account, then cancel on the 7th day if you want coverage of more than the two featured holes. Also, I not sure if they just show a few featured groups or the whole field.
|1 day 6 min ago||I agree||
Also, he has had almost zero time for golf in the past year, so his game could pick up considerably now. With a practice round, he has been playing at least 3 days in a row. I just hope he does not get blisters!
|1 day 18 hours ago||The ESPN video gives much more context than the USA Today report||
It shows that JH's spending after his first month on the job did not differ from Hoke's. It clarifies that more spending in the B1G is needed to keep up with conferences like the SEC. Also, Harbaugh showed the biggest rankings jump in ESPN history from his first to his second class. They conclude that the benefits justify the expenses. At the same time, it's not been his travel expenses but his creativity that have produced such big results in a short period.
|1 day 19 hours ago||Team is even at the turn, still -3 for the tournament||
Bettencourt is +1 so far today, +6 overall.
|1 day 22 hours ago||USA Today: The SEC commish's statement "reeks of entitlement"|
|1 day 23 hours ago||Sankey's NCAA appointment is due to expire in 6 months||
Hopefully, it will not be renewed. I don't see how he can objectively evaluate 2 teams from his own conference---especially given his current grandstanding for the SEC. Also, if he were reappointed as chair and recused himself from the Tenn and Ole Miss investigations, the committee would be without a real chairman.
|1 day 23 hours ago||Holloman has .83 rating in 247 composite||
National rank not in the top 600. He is from Georgia.
|1 day 23 hours ago||So far, this is the only video of JH this year that I can find||
You will see that he has a very good stroke (with his pen).
|1 day 23 hours ago||JH and Jason Day led through 2 rounds in this tourney in 2013|
|2 days 11 min ago||Only 8 out of 156 pros did worse than Bettencourt's +5 yesterday||
They need to finish in the top 25 (out of 156) to continue to play Sunday. Currently, the cut is at -8, and Harbaugh's team needs to make up roughly 5 strokes. But yesterday they played the toughest course and the one they play today is easier.
|2 days 19 min ago||I think you are right||
but sometimes the NCAA makes up rules as it goes along. It's not unlike the NFL in some ways.
|2 days 1 hour ago||JH tee time today (Friday)||
12.17 pm ET at MPCC. MPCC is the easiest of the three courses. It is about 1.2 strokes easier than Pebble or Spyglass from the back tees. So today, JH could make up some ground over the rest of the field. Hopefully, his pro partner, Bettencourt, will play better.
|2 days 13 hours ago||Note that Harbaugh video posted below is from a prior appearance||
After the Super Bowl witht the 49ers, Harbaugh also played this tournament. It says a lot about his celebrity that now, as a college coach, he is appearing again.
One thing you can see from the old video below, however, is that he has a pretty good swing.
|2 days 13 hours ago||From super bowl 47||
after his 49ers played his brother's ravens.

He was disgruntled about JH apparently flipping Alaric Jackson. But I think JH ran out of room for him anyway.
