oober In Top 10 For US Open Challenge
By Kickntrue on 3/16/10
So- we've been receiving updates form an oobgolfer who is in the final 10 to win the Golf Digest US Open Challenge. We NEED to get him in! If you're unfamiliar with the contest- it's like this... 1 winner gets to play the US Open course from the tips, with the US Open setup along with 3 celebrities. Oh- and it's filmed in High-Def and shown on NBC before the final round. It's basically the dreamiest dream any amateur golfer could ever imagine.

Golf Digest received over 30k entries and they are down to 10. One of them is an oober, Matt Brower, from Austin, Texas. He is featured on a video posted on GolfDigest.com with the rest of the finalists. He is at the 2:10 mark, the one who says he would practice every day, and his wife would hate him for it- and then begs for Golf Digest to ruin his life! Sounds like an oober to me!

So- I guess they cut the 10 down to 5, and then we, the American public gets to select a winner. Listen- If Matt gets to the final 5- and it comes down to a vote... we've got to get him in. If not- we've failed! I'm just saying that right now...

I'm sure Matt will keep us up to date... and let's all say our prayers tonight- that he gets in. If it can't be us- it may as well be someone we can private message!

Seriously though, he is. Vote for him. He has little else going for him.

Nice!! It's awesome to see an oober in the running. I'll be sure to give him my vote if he makes it.

His game looks similar to mine (except that he gets to play once a week down in TX while I'm freezing my ace off here in MO) so I would be very interested to see how he would do.

@Mattlie - ABSOLUTELY I can help you chip. I had been a member at River Place but I live in Cedar Park - drop me an email and we can get together and work on your short game.
