10 Things I Think

by Jeff Skinner 1.  With triple digit temperatures blanketing the Northeast the weather at The Irish Open looked pretty inviting to me.  That Royal Portrush wasn’t half bad either. 2.  Joe Daley’s win on the Champions Tour was inspiring.  Check out Larry Dorman’s piece on the latest Champion. 3.  It was good to see that Rory McIlroy was able to console Caroline Wozniacki in Ireland after she got bounced from Wimbledon so early.  And Rory even made the cut! 4. … Continue Reading
