North Coast Links

The Open Championship at Royal Portrush in Northern Ireland. Joey3Sticks picks Xander Schauffele, Tommy Fleetwood, Jon Rahm.

I’ll take 2 countrymen Rory McIlroy & GMac and then the guy who made the brilliant move to hire a caddy from the course Club. Brooks Koepka. Local knowledge is everything on this links terrain. In wind and rain.

Stay cool and watch on record. Don’t text any spoilers!

Revivals

Tonys the best TV show. Actual talent on display from old classics Oklahoma or Kiss Me Kate. James Corden. Who new? He was great.

Big Little Lies. Season 2. Abusive husband replaced by abusive mother-in-law. Of course. Celeste takes the bait. Evil and dark, Meryl Streep is even better in the role than I’d predicted. Real. Resonates.

Rory woke up and commanded Canada’s course. Welcome back.

Clown Car

It’s officially a Clown Car now. Mayor DeBlasio is #23 in the Democrat primary race. He joins the latest Montana guy Bullock? Bollocks? It’s just silly. And. If Sleepy Creepy Joe stays at the top of the heap of jesters. Advantage Trump.

Meanwhile. Tiger’s under the big top at Bethpage Black at +2 thru 3. Since nobody would drive me out there, have to watch it online. Boo! At least the sun is out for a change.

Big Bang. Last episode. Unless Bolton gets us into a war with Iran.

Tiger!!!!

Watching the Sunday nail-biter with my guys and texting all weekend with J3. The Masters 2019. Doesn’t get any better than this.

After the 9th hole, I kept whispering to Tiger. Think of Daddy & Navy Seals. And. It seemed to work.

A miracle that anyone could comeback from that.

Weekend Traffic

So it begins. Spring road closures. Gates and tents all over Central Park. St. Patrick’s Day Parade today on Fifth. Half marathon on Sunday.

As usual, lots of talking going on while actual golf is being played somewhere in the background at The Players in Florida. Can Tiger stay on the Island?  Brexit brothers Rory and Tommy lead the pack.

And. Trump will run over Beto the Manic Bozo as easily as Johnny & Moira Rose ran over that cat on Schitt’s Creek.

Catching Magic

Dr. Husband captured magical sighting from our South Fork porch.
Jumping dolphin.

Then. We snatched summer’s last North Fork harvest.
Sweet corn. Heirlooms. Squash.

 

Back to the City in time to catch…
the miraculous comeback story of Tiger Woods.

Sunday Scenes

Today’s final pairing at Ridgewood, NJ. Keegan Bradley & Bryson DeChambeau. Why aren’t they constantly on the clock? As they painstakingly perseverate over lining up each shot, there’s plenty of time to take a long walk around the block.

Never know who or what you’ll see. A visiting star from the great beyond. Or. A guy shlepping his flea market furniture find home. Only in NYC!
