Jake’s sad he can’t watch the British Open but it’s still his favorite golf tournament

-The British Open started early this morning—yep, earlier than we are even up doing this show—and Jake can’t watch it because of coverage of B1G Media Days, but he’ll tell you why it’s his favorite golf tournament, even ahead of the Masters

  • I didn’t even know not taking Adrian Martinez to Media Days was an option

  • Brooks Koepka does not give a single bleep

Could Sip beat Charles Barkley in golf?

-The American Century Golf Tournament starts tomorrow, and Barkley is 7500-1 odds to win the event, which is worst odds in the field. Last year, Chuck shot essentially 100-over par over the 3 day stretch—and made double bogey or worse on 85% of the holes…could Sip beat that, or would he be destined for last place?

-We could make it all that much easier if we just get Sip over to Jim Ager….

Jake is considering going to Minneapolis this weekend to watch a PGA Tour event…would Sip even attend an event like that if it was in Omaha or Lincoln?

The 3M Championship is making its debut on the PGA Tour schedule this week, and drawing big crowds—the state has certainly drawn big crowds in the past for big events like the Ryder Cup and U.S. Open….though Jake is excited about it, would Sip ever think about going to a golf event?

Nebraska native Nate Lashley overcomes incredible odds to win on the PGA Tour on Sunday…can he provide something for fans to consistently root for locally?

-What an incredible story; Lashley was the 3rd alternate for the Rocket Mortgage Classic in Detroit, yet was informed midday Wednesday that he would be playing, and all he went on to do was lead the tournament wire-to-wire, shooting 25-under par to win by 6 strokes over a field that included players like Rickie Fowler, Patrick Reed, Hideki Matsuyama, Brandt Snedeker, and more

-Lashley’s story is amazingly sad; his parents and his girlfriend died in a plane crash on the way back from an event of his in college; he quit the game and was flipping houses for a while; came back and joined the tour in his mid-30s after lots of mini tours; and now he’s playing in the Masters next year. Wow.

  • Nebraska athletics are dangerously close to having its worst finish ever in the Learfield Cup (formally Directors Cup)
  • Onwiler’s Court
  • Who’s going to win the U.S. Open? Parker and Tom draft golfers who can take the title

Fox is carrying the U.S. Open for golf again, yet apparently forgot to put 2-time defending champion Brooks Koepka in their promos

-Koepka was informed about the mistake on Tuesday and was in somewhat disbelief about it, as the reigning PGA Champion and also 2-time defending U.S. Open Champion. Is it the mission of the golf world just to piss off Koepka and make him even more dominant because of it?

Fremont Golf Club

Our inaugural 2019 ‘Early Break’ Golf Tour begins with Fremont Golf Club! What a tremendous looking course it was. I played the tips (black tees–6,532 yards) and was blown away by how green the course was. You can tell how well maintained the course is from the get-go, as the putting green was a gem, and was an accurate depiction for how the greens on the course were. The course isn’t long, but pretty much every hole is tree-lined, so if you find yourself erratic off the tee, prepare for a tough day of scoring. If you can keep the driver in the bag and hit long irons or a hybrid consistently straight, you’ll have a chance to score well.

The unique feature of the course is the train track that goes through the middle of it. The 18 holes are pretty much divided right in the middle of the tracks, so you’ll go across them several times in the round to get to your next set of holes. I thought it was impressive how they fit 18 holes into smaller area of territory than usual—it seemed like a puzzle piece in how they fit all the holes in, which was creative.

My high school golf coach always told me that Fremont Golf Club had some of the best greens in the state—he was right! The greens were true and quick, but not unfair. They’re also receptive if you play a lot of spin on chips or in general when hitting into the green. Also–the bunkers were redone last year and they are immaculate. I had just played golf at Torrey Pines in San Diego the week prior, and the sand was identical to that sand–which are often described as some of the best bunkers in all of golf.

I highly recommend a visit to Fremont Golf Club! If you have a Nebraska Golf Passport, you can play the course. Otherwise, it’s a private course, so membership is required to get on. They always have great membership specials going on, so check them out to get more info.
