Monday, May 26, 2014

Weather was chaotic again on Sunday. There was a delay for lightning of nearly two hours during round two. The final 18 was suspended until 8:30 a.m., Eastern time Monday, after seven holes of the shotgun start were complete.

Robb’s 75 included 35 putts. It wasn’t a matter of bad putts as he burned the edge throughout the round, but he just couldn’t find the cup as often as he needed.

“First round started off OK with a few clutch pars,” Robb stated. “But I finished pretty rough. I didn’t make as many putts as I should have, a lot of putts missed that should have gone in.”

The senior hit 14 of 19 fairways and 17 of 25 greens today.

“I put too much pressure on my putting,” he continued. “I didn’t hit the ball great, I missed too many greens. I hit some good putts…they just kept lipping out and not going in.”

He shook off the tough 18 to get things started on his final round. He parred his first three holes before back-to-back birdies on five and six. A bogey on eight dropped him to -1 for the round. He is in the fairway on nine when play resumeson Monday.

Robb is tied for 62nd at +3. .

Case Handled Like Any Other? - And Response

It is interesting that Chief Fletcher would deem the handling of the Mayor's encounter as typical or normal. Is the Chief asking the public to believe that all misdemeanor domestic violence arrests include a 4-hour taped interrogation, and delayed reporting after a visit to the Chief’s house. Of course, we believe that Chief Fletcher. April Eidson * * *  I ... (click for more)
