Notes: Matt Mulcahy and Leon Van Rensburg
Two quick notes before today's piece.
1. Congratulation to PGA Club Professional Leon Van Rensburg for scoring four eagles in one round. In doing so, Leon set a new course record of 29-33=62 at Reese Golf Club, a daily fee track five miles west of Lubbock, TX.
Is this some sort of record? I have some people looking, but you do the same and lets see. No matter what, it's an amazing feat. The course is 6600 yards, par 72 from the tips. The round was witnessed by PGA member Ronnie Rossen and amateur Steve Long.
Until recently, Leon was head pro at the Tom Doak designed Rawls Course in Lubbock. My review of the Rawls Course is here (and at Cybergolf.)
2. Welcome a new media friend to the fold - Matt Mulcahy. Matt is a news anchor for WSTM in Syracuse, New York and is married to Jamie Pomilio, the niece of an old friend of my own and my dad's, Judge Anthony Pomilio of Family Court in Oneida County. We reconnected at the Open on Sat and Sun.
Matt has a good blog called Matt's Memo, (click on Matt's Memo) about national news and local news in Syracuse. I rate him just as highly as the excellent blog by my dear friend and colleague Tom Kirkendall over at Houston's Clear Thinkers, so check him out.
