Jim Harbaugh Playing in the Pebble Beach Pro Am

Jim Harbaugh Playing in the Pebble Beach Pro Am

Looks like Jim is going to tee it up this week at Pebble Beach with the pros.  Lots of questions on my mind.

http://www.attpbgolf.com/players/#celebrities

1.  Does he make the cut to Sunday?  (The competitor in him must be burning to make the cut.)

2.  Attire?  (Full Harbaugh?  Rickie Fowler high tops and joggers?)

3.  How's the swing?  (Smooth athletic swing with the help of coaching or a unique home grown swing?)

4.  Clubs?  (Assuming a new bag of Taylormades)

5.  Pro to be paired with?  (My pick: Jason Day)

 

Good luck to our coach out there.  Hit them straight and enjoy yourself!  

 

EDIT:  Swing looks pretty good; smooth just like his recruiting pitch.

OT: The Open Championship (British Open) Final round

OT: The Open Championship (British Open) Final round

Submitted by rob f on July 20th, 2015 at 11:08 AM

Is anyone else out there in MGoBlogdom watching the British Open?  Some amazing golf being played in this rain-soaked tournament, they're finally getting in the final round of this Golf Major (due to weather delays on Friday, everything was pushed back a day).

Adam Scott just tapped in for a birdie to tie Zach Johnson for the lead at -15, Jordan Spieth, in his attempt at golf's Grand Slam is in a 3-way tie at -14, and several other golfers are within striking range at -10 or better.

Normally, being 5 shots back with half a round to play would all but eliminate anyone that far back, but with the windy, rainy conditions on The Old Course, anything goes.  The weather has gotten much worse over the last half-hour, so the final few groups have to now deal with far-less-than-ideal conditions from here on out.  The final pair, BTW, is now on the 7th hole.

During a stop Monday at the Swing to Cure Diabetes golf outing at the UM Golf Course, hosted by former teammate Rich Hewlett, Harbaugh dropped in fresh off a mission trip to Peru.

After making remarks to the participants during lunch, Harbaugh offered to take questions. Toward the end, a young boy piped up and asked something many Michigan fans likely want answered.

"Can we please beat the Buckeyes this year?" he asked, sparking laughter and applause from the gathering.

Harbaugh handled it smoothly.

"Asking politely isn't going to get it done," Harbaugh said, again drawing laughter.

Poll: Favorite Michigan Sport Other Then Basketball/Football?

Poll: Favorite Michigan Sport Other Then Basketball/Football?

Submitted by WolverineBeastBoy on November 13th, 2014 at 11:27 PM

I just though of this earlier today, what is your favorite Michigan sport other then Basketball and Football? There is many choices like Golf, Hockey, Lax, Baseball, Soccer, Swimming, Crew, Track/Field and more! Personally my favorite is Hockey. I just love the sport and play the sport! Yost is such a old, yet clean rink that has so much memories/history in it. Michigan has done a great job with Yost. Also, Red Berenson is forsure the best coach in NCAA, and Michigan has done a tremendous job with building the program up. Leave your thoughts and choices below and tell WHY! Go blue

For those big Hockey fans, the Frozen Four is always an exciting event.  This year returns the big-name teams missing from last year's event with BC, North Dakota, and Minnesota all in the tournament. 

Right now Union and BC are tied 2-2.  Later North Dakota plays Minnesota.

And down in Augusta, Bill Haas leads after one day at -4.  Adam Scott, last year's champion, is tied for second at -3 with the champion from two years ago, Bubba Watson, and 2010 British Open Champion Louis Oosthuizen. 

And at 7:00 the Michigan Men's gymnastics team has the preliminary round of the NCAA Championship.  Michigan should hopefully advance to the final round with ease.  It should also be noted that star Sam Mikulak won the Nissen Emery award, given to the best college gymnast.  Basically the Heisman of Men's Gymnastics.  Results can be found here:

For those who enjoyed the animated GIFs of Yu Darvish, Justin Verlander and Miguel Cabrera you might also enjoy this animated GIF of Tiger Wood's golf swing through the years.  It is interesting to watch his swing take some significant changes as he changed swing coaches.  Link? LINK

OT- Masters Sunday Round Open Thread

OT- Masters Sunday Round Open Thread

Submitted by Paps on April 14th, 2013 at 1:46 PM

It's Sunday at the Masters.  This is as good as it gets!  The leaders don't tee off until 2:40 PM, but the "contenders" start going off at around 1:40 or so. 

America's Brandt Snedeker and Argentina's Angel Cabrera lead the tournament at -7. Adam Scott is one back at -6, followed by Marc Leishman and Jason Day at -5.  Matt Kuchar is at -4, and at -3 sit Tiger Woods and Tim Clark.  Other notable players are: Rickie Fowler -2, Steve Stricker -2, Jim Fyurk -2, Fred Couples +1, Bubba Watson +2, Jason Dufner +2, Dustin Johnson +2, Rory McIlroy +4, Phil Mikelson +9, and 14 year old Tianlang Guan at +12.

There have been some incredible storylines so far this year, and it seems like this final round has packed everything you could possibly want into one.  You have the past champion (Angel Cabrera), the redemption story (Brandt Snedeker), and of course Tiger Woods.  Though he was assessed a controversial two stroke penatly after Friday's round, he sits only 4 shots back going into today's round.  

As for the weather, today is colder, and the course will be playing a bit softer than usual, which could cause for some early good scores, like Bill Haas, -2 through 3 holes.  There looks like there is rain headed Augusta's way, but you never know with weather. 

Hope everyone enjoys this final round, and if you can't make it to a tv, there is some great stuff HERE on the Masters website
