Bae Can Avoid Military Service With A Major Or Medal

Reading John Strege's account of Sunday's HP Byron Nelson and the CBS telecast, there was this:

Faldo also predicted that Bae won't be "a flash in the pan." Bae is banking on that as well, aiming as he is to represent South Korea in the Olympics in 2016. Military service is mandatory in South Korea and he has yet to fulfill his obligation, but an Olympic medal or a major championship would exempt him from service.

How about a Players Championship?

Another graduate (like Ernst, Wells Fargo winner) of the soon to be extinct Tour School.
off topic but at Glen Eagles in Plano, the Open Qual today, won't name names but players are still talking about TW's drop at the Masters and how he should have be DQ'd. Over and out
It was satisfying to see Keegan get his head handed to him.
^^^^^^^ LOL ;)

I was pulling for him just so you guys would be mad!

Truth is he handed his head to himself. He hit a tee ball in the drink on #3 and was never really on top of his game all day. Missed a 2.5-footer on 16 so the anchoring couldn't be all that.

After playing the first 18 in 10-under he only played the last 54 in 1-under. If he had only gotten it around at even-par on Sunday he plays off.

@DTF: Anchoring doesn't help you read putts.

Hawk, Bae's putt on 16 was on the exact same line as Keegan's -- he had a perfect read.

Keegan's pre-putt routine was several minutes of the first bit of the show. Thank goodness they started showing other players after the drop bs at 3. Is this new to these guys? You hit it where it s going to go into a hazard and you WATCH to see where it crosses the line. IMO he was too far down the lake line, but I don't care, just glad he lost. He is absolutlely at the top of the heap of newer players, who are long hitters, but I don't care- they are no fun to watch. His pre shot BS is too much, and Del, I don't care if he putts with a Bulls Eye, I won't watch him.

Thank goodness for DVR and the FF button.

Bae was great, to have that double in mid round, and then the power lip out, and just keep playing hard! Awesome 17 and 18.

He won, KB didn't lose. Credit to Bradley for saying such in the post round interview.

digger, Keegan called in the rules official and dropped it where they told him to. If you have a problem with the drop you should direct your ire at Slugger White.

As for his pre-shot, uh, quivering? He is one jumpy SOB isn't he? Pretty bizarre stuff, drives my Dad crazy too.

The legend of Rain Boy's expanding head goes on... Couldn't watch the tourney knowing he had the lead, but fired up the DVR just in time to see his big, now bearded head explode after getting it back to even on 15 (after blowing the lead earlier), low five'ing everybody on both sides of the path to the 16th tee as if it was all over, then going into hyperdirve with an extra six twirls of the club before stutter stepping into address and then blowing himself right out of the title with another out of control display of emotion that I doubt could even be controlled with an extra dose of Ritalin. If this is the future of golf, then heaven help the greatest gemme...
