Another "track" that "doesn't fit this team."

Bottom line. Since people were singing praises about a Top 10 ranking and I warned that the team was not deserving of such a ranking, they have finished last or next to last in 3 straight tourneys. If Fall ball is for learning, then it doesn't seem they've learned too much as of yet. Hopefully, the can learn better in the winter.


At the time they were ranked, they were deserving...you are what your score say's u are....since I am old, I remember when everyone thought, and thanks to "Big Three Golf" on TV Palmer, Nicklaus and Player walked on Golf Course Water...one small problem, the best player was a guy named Billy Casper, who during the decades of the 60's and early 70's won more golf tournaments than Palmer, Player and Nicklaus COMBINED !!!...think about that a moment...actually Casper was the original third member of the Big 3 but when he learned of the filming schedule he backed out due to Family obligations...Casper had 11 children, 6 of whom were adopted...he still holds the record for the number of Ryder Cup points won...holder of the Vardon Trophy 6 times... If you ever have the opportunity play one of the Casper designed courses, the layouts are just beautiful for people of all skill levels... I am lucky enough to have two of his designs here in Georgetown...I am not a big fan of anything designed by Nicklaus...but then again, you are what your scores say you are

Perhaps your just to damn old to realize when your wrong. They didn't deserve to be ranked Top 10 and I provided reasons for stating such.

Those reasons have been proven to be just.

Your ramblings about Casper and Nicklaus seem to indicate that Aricept would probably be helpful.

I may be old, but given the results when the article was written, they were a top 10 team at that time...look at the football season at one time many teams were to be in the "final 4"...some have zero chance now, can ya hear me OSU, ND, Washington but at the time, given their records, they were all in final 4 team...if ya get to metro Austin let me know, and make sure to bring your sticks, we will go ramble thru the hills

The recruiting has fallen way off under this coach. Plus last season a Tulane alum was hired as top assistant, and lasted one season, so something maybe going on.

Too bad TD was not able to find a spot of Sue...she is a wonderful person and always represented Tulane in the highest regard


i was very disappointed to see mrs bower leave. she built that program and kept it afloat after katrina. every coach that has come through was handpicked by her and im afraid that if our current coach ever leaves that we may struggle to find a leader of the same caliber. mrs bower carried a lot of clout in the golf world.


you have spoken the truth !!!



I will third that. Good woman. Congrats to the ladies!

That's what we did - although it was Europe and South America - when we were good; had 1 U.S. player the rest foreign nationals.
As for Bowers, times change and people move on. She picked this coach who hasn't kept up with the recruiting (and yes, she picked the prior 2 who were very effective).
