oober In US Sr. Open
By Kickntrue on 7/29/10
Normally I wouldn't care too much about the US Sr. Open (starts today), but since an oober is playing- I care, and I have someone to root for!
oob User twbrannen appears to be Thomas Brannen, an Augusta, Georgia, native, ready to take on the Sahalee Country Club. Here is his bio from the US Open site:
Shot 70 and tied for medalist honors at the Duluth, Ga., sectional to qualify for his second U.S. Senior Open. Played in the 2007 U.S. Senior Open but missed the cut. Won the 1993 Georgia PGA Championship and the 1985 Atlanta Open. Played in the PGA Championship in 1987 and 1988, finishing 38th in 1988. Made it to the final stage of PGA Tour Qualifying School eight times. Won the 1978 NCAA Division II Championship and led Columbus State to the team title. Was named the Georgia PGA North Chapter Teacher of the Year in 1992 and 1997. Invented the Swing Extender, a popular golf training aid. Is the head professional at Augusta Country Club.So then I realize that I've had contact with Mr. Brannen before- because he sent me a Swing Extender to review and it kind of got lost in the shuffle of me moving a couple months ago. So yah, um, Mr. Brannen, sorry about that. Umm... Swing Extender, Swing Extender, Swing Extender, Swing Extender, and I'm rooting for you! I'm sure all of oob is behind you as well. If I can find the Swing Extender still in an unpacked box somewhere- I'll try to review it. :)
It looks like Tom tee's off in the afternoon wave at 12:40PM (in some time zone at least).
LET'S GO TOM!

Don't think he made it.
Yep, Tom missed the cut; he shot a 76 & 77. Too bad. Even so, to qualify is one heck of an accomplishment.
