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.

A Blast From The Past

Anybody remember the name David Duval? No, well that’s OK. His story is one of great achievement and an equally great demise.

In the late ‘90s until 2001, Duval was one of the best players in the world. In fact he was even ranked number one for some time. However, for various reasons Duval’s game fell apart after his victory in the 2001 British Open to the point that it was disturbing to watch.

All that being said, times might be changing for Duval. He opened up the Dunlop Phoenix Open with a 6 under 64 which was good for a one shot lead over Tiger Woods.

There is a lot of golf still to be played, but let’s hope that Duval has turned the corner. I’ve always liked the guy and hope that his game really is coming back to him.
