Where there is a Will there is a way. Way to go Will.

I assume he's leading the tournament. By how much? And do they play just one more round??
07.10.2013 | Unregistered Commenter3foot1
3foot1, WIll is not leading. He is solo 3rd at 8 under par, 2 strokes back.

Wow, that is really awesome. Amazed at the young man's maturity. Very cool story from a very cool place. Way to go Will.

Steiny sign the boy up quick …we've all heard of I Pod right ? Well now we've got A Pod ! What a marketers dream … and I will take 5% commission on his career earnings for suggesting the idea. Bank account details to follow, funds accepted in all currencies …

Uh, Billy... A.Pod is the guy who made the video.

The kid who shot the 59 is Will Grimmer.

Willy G. Rimmer is perhaps a harder sell for Steiny. Or perhaps not.

Another old course against modern equipment. Guess they forgot to Merionize it.
07.11.2013 | Unregistered CommenterMike Stevens
Mike, 59 is 59 even if every hole simply started on the green in regulation....but I had a similar thought to yours.

Wonder how many time this kid hit sand wedge? Or should I say, how many times did he have to hit more than sand wedge? Two?
