Wednesday marked an historic date in the world of professional golf…Tiger Woods return after 8 months. In case you’re in the dark and know nothing about golf, Tiger Woods underwent surgery last year on his left knee after he won the U.S. Open that keep him off the course until now. For me, this is a big deal because golf is one of my passions and I think that Tiger is the single greatest athlete in any sport playing today.
Thursday marked a depressing date in the week of Mike Schilleman. Tiger Woods failed to make it past the second round of the accenture match play tournament and was defeated 4 & 2 by Tim Clark. I had high hopes for the world’s #1, but I may have set standards that were even too high for Tiger Woods. What I, and most of world, forgets is that Tiger is human too and you can’t except him to win his first tournament start back after not playing for a good chunk of a year. But that’s saying a lot for Tiger Woods though, he’s that good that people think he’s going to win every time he steps foot on the first tee.
So why am I telling this all to you? Well because golf is my favorite sport and it’s partially the reason I came to UWGB in the first place. UWGB has its very own 9-hole golf course called The Shorewood Golf Course that’s very convenient for students. It’s winter right now and there is a few feet of snow covering the entire campus, but when the springtime roles around, it’s quite fun to walk over and play 9 holes after class.
If you are at all interested in golf, like myself, then you will be excited to hear that The Shorewood Golf Course offers student discounts on golf, both on the links and in the pro shop. And if you could care less about golf, there is a small restaurant inside that serves killer food at a cheaper price for students of UWGB. The food really is great and on a nice day, it’s only a short walk away from any of your classes for a lunch break.
So, maybe Tiger will win some majors yet this year, but this Sunday will have to bring another golfer to the winner’s podium. And as far as golfing myself goes, I will be down in Florida in two weeks for Spring Break! I will be back very soon with another post, but until then have a great night and let me know if you have any questions or comments?!
