Still, it is tough to complain about an Open at Lytham, where Bobby Jones won the first of his three Claret Jugs with ping g15 irons in 1926. Unlike this year's U.S. Open venue, the Olympic Club, known much for producing the unlikely winner over the star player with ping g20 irons, Lytham has seen a litany of well-known champions.
And at last July's Open Championship, when a certain Spanish player unveiled his stretching routine on the Royal St. George's driving range, Jenkins noted: "Miguel Angel Jimenez's warm-up routine remains so suggestive that spectators with PING G20 Driver are trying to stick dollar bills in his belt."
He won't like to hear it, but Jenkins redefined sports journalism the same way Donald Trump redefined comb-over. He did it as a teenage newspaperman for the late, great Fort Worth Press with new golf clubs and later the Dallas Times-Herald, as a writer for Sports Illustrated, as a best-selling author, and as a Golf Digest columnist. Why a J-school somewhere doesn't bear his name is beyond me.
