The GrunkleGuru

Grunkle is a slang term for the thick rough on a golf course that I have been using for many years. Given my penchant for inaccurate tee balls, I have become a bit of a guru out of the thick stuff, hence the name. This is a site for my random thoughts about sports (espeically golf) and life in general. While nothing special, it will hopefully offer a break from the daily drudgery for both you and me.

Congratulations To The Quakers!

Wow, that was an old fashioned whooping that the Guilford College Men's Golf team put on the rest of the field at the NCAA Division III championship played at the Mission Inn Golf & Tennis Resort. Some of the astounding numbers include (see article here for all the details):

- Their 25 shot margin of victory was seventh in Division III history

- Three players (Colin Clark, Dave Patterson, and Brant Stoval) earned All-American Honors

- This is the second national championship in 4 years (also won in 2002)

- Colin Clark defeated Dave Patterson in a playoff to win the individual championship

Not to shabby for a little Quaker school in Greensboro, NC.

So congratulations to Coach Jensen, and the entire Quaker golf team. You have done your school proud.

Congrats, Guru. That is another big win for the Quakers.

It is also worth noting that Northwest Guilford won the 4A state team championship, and their Drew Younts won the individual championship.

Thanks for reading Patrick.

You brought up a good point about Northwest and they deserve props as well.
