Northern Trust Open Off To An Offbeat Start

A weather delay was the least bizarre thing to happen to this tournament at the Riviera Country Club. Dustin Johnson was hit with a penalty after his caddy got his tee-time mixed up. Johnson was lucky a 2 stroke penalty was all he was given, he was a mere seconds away from being DQ. Then Bubba Watson withdrew from the tournament after a strained stomach muscle. To top of this wacky chain of events the Golf Channel pulled Jim Gray off coverage for this event after another spat with DJ’s caddy Bobby Brown…And some people think golf is just a snooze, what do they know? It’s not bad for all golfers, Fred Couples has been a strong presence at this tournament on one of his favorite courses and it is loving him back. I was shocked to hear this his 30th year playing this tournament… that’s dedication, I know who I will be cheering for.
