With another dominating performance, Jason Day cruised to a 6-shot victory at The Barclays. This was Day’s 3rd victory in his last 4 events and vaulted him to the top of the Fed Ex Cup Playoff standings as well as moving him up to his career high #3 Official World Ranking. Perhaps the scariest thing for the rest of the PGA Tour was the comment Day made after his latest triumph, saying that each win makes him even hungrier for the next one. Think about that for a minute.
A month ago, there was no questions that Jordan Spieth was going to be the player of the year and all the “year-end” accolades were headed his way. With the month that Jason Day has put together, it’s anyone’s game now and I, for one, can’t wait to see how it unfolds!
Tune in Saturday, August 29th as we turn our focus to the issues, factors and solutions for seniors looking to improve their game and their life as they enjoy their senior years!
As many of you know, I’ve personally started a journey to better health and have had the privilege of working with two of my favorite people in the world, Hector Ramos & Barbara Ramos from Somar Strength. With the combination of evaluation, work-outs, stretching and massage, I’m making progress, but I continue to be blown away by the knowledge, expertise and care that I’m receiving with Hector & Barbara. I learn something every time I see them and I’m thrilled to announce that I’m able to share them with YOU! On this Saturday mornings show, they will be giving away a TPI Screening and Full Performance Evaluation. This is a golf specific evaluation, and if you play at all, no matter what your skill level, I promise you this will be a fabulous experience! This is a $300 value and has been truly life-changing for me!!!! Tune in tomorrow morning from 8-9AM for your chance to win –WSRQRADIO.com or 106.9FM, 98.9FM & 1220 AM. Somar Strength is the official trainer of the West Florida Golf Tour!

The PGA Tour had a “Senior Moment” this week at the Wyndham Championship in Greensboro as Davis Love III became the 3rd oldest player in PGA Tour history to win an official event! Ryder Cup Captains are supposed to be be giving tips and pointers to the players on the range, not on the course, but with a final round 64, Love turned the tables on the young guns, notching his 21st career victory and first since 2008.
It’s perfect timing for our show as our shows the next two weeks will have a “Senior Focus”. We’ll be discussing all aspects of senior golf, from fitness and health to instruction and technology – we’ve got you covered! Tune in Saturday Aug 29th and Saturday, Sept 5th, from 8-9AM on WSRQ. We’ll be giving away over $500 in prizes and services over the next two weeks. Spread the word!
It was only a matter of time. The question wasn’t if Jason Day was going to break through and win his first Major Championship, the question was just when. As tears flowed down his cheeks, years of frustration, doubt and struggle were swept away and Jason Day proved that he is truly a Champion.
The PGA Championship capped one of the most thrilling and compelling Major Seasons in history and I, for one, can’t wait til 2016! Oh and by the way, Mr. Jordan Spieth passed Rory McIlroy to become the 2nd youngest player ever to reach #1 in the world. Not a bad weekend
