Bobby Jones Plaque next to the 11th hole tee box at Merion Golf Club. After defeating Jess Sweetser in the semi finals of the 1930 US Amateur, Jones dominated Eugene Homans to win the 36 hole match on the 11th hole (29th hole overall) to win the Grand Slam. It was only the 2nd time in Jones' career that he even participated in all 4 Majors.
May Dr Chipinski make an appearance or two today. Fast bent greens, the conditions are ripe. As some of you may know, the Nugget has her alter ego of "Dr Chipinski" and even has it stamped on a couple of her wedges... not sure what Matt Kuchar has to do to earn his "doctorate" but for now Paul Azinger calls him "Mr Chipinski"... keep workin' Kooch! You'll get there one day! #drchipinski#thenugget#averytown#averyzweig#shortgame#wedges#wedgework#magician#upanddown#likeanelevator @paulazinger @usga. #Repost @usga (@get_repost)
