Awesome Pairing

World No. 1 Rory McIlroy will play Augusta National next week with World No. 1 in Awesomeness Tom Brady. This is according to Golf Channel's Todd Lewis, who tweeted, "A 4-time Super Bowl champ walking the fairways with a 4-time Major champ" to which huge Partiots' fan Keegan Bradley responded, "I'm very jealous." Brady, who's about an 8 handicap (though he doesn't seem to have an official Index), has been playing golf since age 2 when his dad first took him to a course in Northern California. He even worked at two golf courses during the summers while attending the University of Michigan. The one burning question The Buzz has is: does he like to play with low-compression balls?

Jay Morrish, 1936-2015

One of the leading golf course architects of the 1990s and 2000s, Jay Morrish, died on March 2. After serving on the construction team that built Spyglass Hill in Pebble Beach, he became a designer, working for Desmond Muirhead and then Jack Nicklaus before forming a partnership with former PGA Tour player Tom Weiskopf. The team of Weiskopf-Morrish produced many notable courses, including Loch Lomond in Scotland (shown above), the Champions Course at TPC Scottsdale, Forest Dunes (Michigan), Troon North (Scottsdale), and the Resort Course at La Cantera (San Antonio). Working with his son Carter, Morrish’s designs include Tehama (Carmel) and Stone Canyon (Tucson). He also designed in Spain, Canada, Australia, and Japan. His philosophy of design, as quoted by the American Society of Golf Course Architects, was “Golf course architecture is a very subjective field of endeavor, and that is good. The game of golf would be distressingly boring if all golf course architects embraced similar design philosophies. Long live diversity!”

Tiger's having a rough week. First he’s accused of being on steroids, now he’s portrayed as a digital deerslayer. Check out this video game bastardization by someone with way too much time on his hands.

Reality Check

Golf Channel is starting a new extreme golf reality series called Altered Course that will debut this summer. Currently in production in Montego Bay, Jamaica, the competition show, which will be hosted by Kristen Kenney of NBC's Red Bull Global RallyCross series, will require teams of telegenic golfers to play speed golf while traversing natural obstacles and difficult terrain. Eight two-person teams will race against the clock as they tackle "re-imagined" golf holes of up to three traditional holes, some in excess of 700 yards. Expect to see a lot of POV and aerial drone footage as the players run about White Witch and Cinnamon Hill courses. One thing's for sure: pace of play will not be an issue.
