No Masters talk? Exciting first 3 days!
Didn't think we had any golfers or golf fans. I like to golf once in a while but now that I'm retired I've already hit the links more often this year than all of last year. And generally I dont watch a lot of golf but I was definitely glued to my tv the last few days , don't think anyone gave tiger a chance to win another major.

Pretty remarkable victory for Tiger.
Amazing stuff considering no one gave him a chance after all those surgeries. He didn't have a great final round but steady enough as everyone around him collapsed down the stretch.

Oh I love me some golf. Huge story today, some people calling it the greatest sporting comeback of all time, and with good reason. Man should barely be able to walk after all those injuries, let alone win another major.

Side note, all this park board talk of doing something with Langara has me a little concerned because that's pretty much my home course.

What are they doing with Langara? I grew up 2 blocks away from there. Used to walk the trail around the course almost every evening in the summer.

I think they want to take some of the land and repurpose it, and shrink the golf course. There have been rumours for a while now but they keep going away and coming back. When I talked to the golf course staff about this last fall, they said the park board wasn't doing anything, but last week it came up on the news again.

The Pens and Lightning have now won just as many playoff games this year as the Canucks did. :lol: :lol: :clap: :clap:

Good point , all these upsets and upsets in the making has me yearning for some playoff hockey in Vancouver, but the canucks still have a ways to go to match the skill, skating,and intensity level of some of these teams.

I agree as well with the season the Lightning had I don't feel bad as well, that has to be absolutely stunning for the Lightning fans though as well as pens fans.
