Mizzou Links, 6-18-07

  • Well, the second day of the US Open didn't work out quite as well for John Kelly. He shot an 84 on Friday, moving to +18 for the tournament and missing the cut by a healthy margin. More importantly he lost ground on the other amateurs. He was tied for first among amateurs heading into Friday, but he ended up 5th behind Mark Harrell (+11), Richard Ramsay (+12), Jason Kokrak (+16), and the eeeeeeevil Rhys Davies (+17). I do, however, find it very satisfying that he finished tied with Colin Montgomerie. Here's the write-up. And here's the greatest quote ever, from the running blog of ESPN's Jason Sobel:

    6:21 p.m.: One of my fellow scribes just eloquently put this tournament -- and this sport -- into perspective:

    Tiger wearing his faux Under Armour special shirt and looking like a male model. And he can't beat the fat chain smoker. Golf rocks. It flat-out rocks.
  • In former Tiger news, here's a nice article about Brad Smith from the AP; meanwhile, Dave Matter sits down for a Sunday Q&A with sack master Brian Smith.
  • Louisville's Chris Dominguez hit TWO MORE homeruns yesterday to help the Cardinals stay alive at the College World Series yesterday, giving him 8 HR's in his last 8 games. That kid's starting to get on my nerves...
  • Here's the Post-Dispatch's Jeff Gordon talking about the job the area's new coaches--Mike Anderson and Rick Majerus--are handling themselves on the recruiting trail. In other basketball news, the Trib's Steve Walentik discusses what it means to the Big XII's pecking order that ATM's Joseph Jones is returning to campus.
  • And finally...that Carl Edwards guy is pretty good.
