Injury update--Jack Lowe MM1 division player-
Reports are coming in that Jack Lowe is walking with less noticeable limp today. The moves that he has shown over the last week in terms of walking seem to be improving on a daily basis. We finally tracked him down with some tough questions, here are his responses:
Q-Jack, how does the calf feel, it appears as though that you aren't favoring it as much as you were earlier in the week.
A-Yeah, it feels better. You know, I think that the Loomis dude put some sort of 48 state hex on me, and I am beginning to think that the spell was only to work during the weekend, but he put such a strong mojo on it, that it carried over into the next week. I mean, you saw my game out there last Saturday morning, Perry and I were killing it, we were hitting shots, I was on, and no Loomis to be found. Then the afternoon round, when I started to put together some shots, he went behind the bushes in Rosedale, and we all know what happens when you go there, and then I put a shot about 3' from #10, and the next time I went to drive, WHAM. I wish the camera's from "the ocho" were on us, because I bet replay would show that he threw something at my calf.
Q-Are you going to be ready to play this Saturday, and will you play better than last year, where you really didn't have a great day, but still was able to win the field?
A-You know, it is tough to defend a title, and I had quite a few distractions, especially the rain, the long lunch at Hickock's, the constant badgering from G$ and the name calling. I mean, I get it, he is scared of my game, and feels threatened every time he sees that I have signed up, but at some point you need to realize that superior gamesmanship is going to happen. I am not sure why this too tall dude thinks that he can drive up and compete, I mean look at it, he shot a sub 800, heck, a sub 775 round last year at the event, and he wants to talk trash? I am prepared to win if I do in fact play. I'd say right now the desire to defend is strong, but the calf that Loomis locked up is not cooperating.
Q-You seem to be game day decision, when do you think you will decide on when you will play?
A-Well, I really think that it may come up to the last minute. Each day I seem to be getting better and better, walking up the stairs is still quite a chore, and the terrain on the front 11 holes is going to stress that out. THe following week with Topeka, then possibly Joplin make the decision tough. Do I want to rest a week so that I am able to go strong, or is playing for one day going to be able to help move those muscles? The fact the event is a 1-day ordeal really helps, in that I know that I can probably muster through it, but will it hurt the rest of the month's planned events? The other thing that is HUGE to know is that Tom Palmer and Tom Mollenkamp, and Dirk Hacker are at this point being little children and haven't indicated that they will be attempting to play. I like how they get scared that easily, and it makes the desire to play strong. At this point, I am probably 55/45, which isn't good. Rest assured though, if I am not playing, I will be there to heckle.
Q-How many trees are you hoping to love, and will you love them classically?
A-That's it, I am out of here, your questions are ridiculous.
Well, with that he stormed out, and gave no indication as to when he may be made available for comments. We shall keep this and the other injuries updated (Chris Timko-hangnail (we were told that he also has a broken nostril hair, that is impeding his breathing), Tracy Walker-Pride in his game) as they become available.
