2016 DSGO: Memories of the 2016 Dick’s Sporting Goods Open won by Paul Goydos!

My Facebook posts & pictures tell the whole story!

Inspiring start to the 2016 Dick’s Sporting Goods Open at The Johnny Hart Memorial Christian Fellowship Breakfast! Faith sharing by host David Marr & Champions players Mike Goodes & Tom Purtzer. Opened with God Bless America, closed with Amazing Grace with lots of meaningful sharing of golf & life experiences in between…

DSGO & the Triple Cities; Still the Valley of Opportunity, Hart & Faith

Good warmup day for the Dick’s Sporting Goods Open… John Daly back after his 1992 B.C. Open win joking that it was the last time he beat Phil Mickelson… Vijay Singh here for the first time with the Greenbrier cancelation & after finishing 2nd at the PGA TOUR event at Congressional 2 weeks ago being serious when he said he never takes 2 weeks off in a row… no doubt that it is going to be a memorable 10th DSGO!

Day 1 of the 2016 Dick’s Sporting Goods Open… little more of a competitive feel but still a festive atmosphere with the big Florida Georgia Line concert tonight… the legendary sports writer John Fox, local amateur & Monday Qualifier Gary Bendert name on the first page of the leaderboard, the mother-daughter team already in position & waiting for the concert to start, Coach Tom Corgel, & the Stryker Team the highlights so far!

TROML Moment meeting & inadvertently introducing Florida Georgia Line drummer Sean Fuller to Spiedies… in this case a Chicken Spiedie Salad… he never had one before & asked a good question-where does the name come from? So I looked it up, comes from the Italian word spiedo referring to cubes of marinated meat cooked on a skewer… local to Binghamton & the Southern Tier of NY State… who has had a,Spiedie out there in Facebook Land?

The Spirit of Golf & Life is Alive & Well at the Dick’s Sporting Goods Open!

Something about being back in your home town, attending a funeral and being inspired by the 10th Dick’s Sporting Goods Open… puts everything in perspective… home is where the heart is and next month the heart of golf and all golfers with heart is in Rio! Back to competitive golf tomorrow… Scott Dunlap’s 64 leading by 2 strokes over Glen Day, Bart Bryant and John Riegger here at En-Joie Golf Club after Round 1 of the 2016 DSGO! (-:

Yeah Triple Cities, my hometown! Florida Georgia Line Friday night at the Dick’s Sporting Goods Open!

Here’s why we all love John Daly… Midnight rendition of Bob Dylan’s Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door… 8:50 am tee time in Round 2 of the Dick’s Sporting Goods Open… 4-under through 12 holes… 8-under overall, 1 stroke behind the leaders… Mama, I put my tees in the ground… I rip it hard and long… Knock, knock, knockin’ on my first Champions Tour Win in only my 7th event… I feel like I am going to get it done… Go JD!!!
