Heading to the Zurich Classic
By mustang6560 on 4/26/11
As a Jackson, Miss. native and LSU alumni, I'm very familiar with the city of New Orleans (pronounced Naw'lins, not New Ore-leeeens). I'm always looking for an excuse to make a trip and my latest excuse is the Zurich Classic!

I've been planning on going ever since I heard Graeme McDowell committed a couple months ago. And a quick look at the field over the weekend only confirmed my interest: Bubba Watson, Rickie Fowler, Luke Donald, Camilo Villegas, John Daly, Steve Stricker, K.J. Choi, do I need to keep going?

Unfortunately I won't be able to go until the weekend so I'm hoping for a dream pairing: Bubba Watson, Rickie Folwer and Graeme McDowell. How awesome would that be?

My top pairings for Thursday and Friday are as follows:
  • Justin Rose, Camilo Villegas, Vijay Singh
  • Boo Weekley, Chris Couch, Rickie Fowler
  • Luke Donald, Graeme McDowell, K.J. Choi
  • Bubba Watson, Steve Stricker, Ben Crane
This is a great weekend for golf here in the dirty dirty. The LPGA is only a few hours away in Mobile, Alabama. I know some guys who are going to follow Natalie Gulbis at the Avnet LPGA Classic (some may call it stalking). As enticing as that sounds, I'd much rather go see some of my favorite golfers! Plus, I've got some college buddies and my brother who are planning on going. Can't wait!

Anyone else heading up/down/over/across to New Orleans this weekend? If so, let me know.

I've been there before as a VIP guest, it was fantastic, all the mixed drinks you wanted plus Jambalaya, Crawfish pies, and Shrimp Gumbo. It's a little slice of Heaven. Oh yeah, got to see my man Phil put on a good show. Don't have the free passes this time but I'm really going to try to be there again this year.

Yes, have lots of fun. Maybe shoot a couple beers and then streak the 18th green!
