I recently saw something wildly entertaining and amazing. It was a YouTube video of Dustin Johnson (The #1 golfer in the world, yes THAT Dustin Johnson) hitting a series of trick shots. Frankly, one does not have to be a golfer to find this video amazing. You may remember (if you are old, like me) the Nike commercial of Tiger Woods bouncing a ball off the face of his wedge a number of times, then popping the ball up and hitting it out of midair. Well, this video of DJ makes that Tiger video look elementary.
Two players who fared very well in the state high school golf tournaments in the past year started off the Junior Golf Alliance of Colorado Tour season with a bang on Sunday. Walker Franklin of Broomfield, who finished second individually in the Class 3A state tourney last fall, scored a seven-stroke victory in the boys division of the JGAC Spring Tour event at the Country Club in Colorado in Colorado Springs. And Amy Chitkoksoong of Aurora, the reigning 5A state high school individual champion, posted a one-shot win in the girls division in Colorado Springs.
