Caddying in the RSM Classic Pro Am-What a Treat
I had a great day yesterday caddying for my friend Ed Witt in the pro am for the RSM classic on the Seaside course at Sea Island. Special thanks to Geoff and Rick from Graybar, our terrific hosts. Highlights included: The pairings party at Davis Love III’s house, we picked UF alum Brian Gay to be our pro; Hanging out at the bar at the Cloister with Matt Adams from the Golf Channel and his lovely wife Donna; Meeting Ryder Cup captain Jim Furyk and watching some great golf from both Brian Gay and our amateurs (Ed, Geoff and Kevin).
Two thoughts on the golf: 1) It is striking how high Brian Gay, and other pros I saw, hit the ball off the tee. As Ed said, with the club and ball technology these days the key is how far the pro’s can carry the ball off the tee. It seems to give them more control taking bad bounces more out of play. 2) Brian Gay’s short game is simply amazing. I saw him hit a 130 yard shot from a fairway bunker to within two feet. He blasted out to within four feet from a fried egg lie in a bunker and he almost hit is other bunker shot to within six inches.
Simply said, it was an awesome day at one of my favorite places on earth-Sea Island, Georgia.
Luka Doncic’s amazing week for the Dallas Maverick’s (stats courtesy of ESPN)
On Monday Luka scored 42 points and had more than 10 rebounds and 10 assist joining Lebron James as the only players in NBA history to do this before the age of 21. Last night Luka had more points, assists and rebounds than the entire Warriors team in the first quarter. He played 25 minutes in total and scored 35 points with 10 boards and 11 assist. His 25 minutes is the least amount of playing time for an NBA player to have a 30 point triple double.
Is Luka the NBA’s most valuable player? to me right now it is between James Harden, Lebron James, and Luka Doncic but if I had to vote for MVP right now I would vote for Luka this dude could average a 30 point triple double which is ridicules this dude had a 40 point triple double a couple of nights ago this dude is doing it all and his mavs are winning they are a real contender in the west but Luka has been insanely good and I believe that he might win MVP and would have my vote right now.
