The Curse Of The White Belt

I guess they don’t call him the “smartest man in sports” for no reason, . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .wait, now that I think about it that’s Verno’s self-proclaimed name for himself but after seeing Tiger Woods and Martin Laird play at the Barclay’s this weekend Chris Vernon might be on to something. Following Dustin Johnson’s choke job at the PGA Championship earlier this month Verno warned all golfers about the “Curse of the White Belt”. Letting the kings of swing know that there is absolutely no reason for a man to ever be caught wearing a white belt around his waist. Should they choose to ignore his P.S.A they would likely be subject to the same type of embarrassing fate as Johnson on the final hole, of the final day, at Whistling Straights.

Dustin Johnson during his shot from what was later discovered to be a sand trap on the 18th hole at Whistling Straights. Johnson who thought he was apart of a 3 way tie to force a playoff was penalized for grounding his club in a sand trap causing him to miss the playoff.

I guess golfers Tiger Woods and Martin Laird missed that days show as both were decked out in their white belts during this weekends tournament at the Barclay’s.

Martin Laird during the Final Round at The Barclay's Tournament Sunday August 29, 2010

 Tiger who wore his Saturday (Round 3), shot a 72, which when combined with his scores for the other 3 Rounds tied him for 12th after leading through the First Round Thursday. Laird on the other hand made the mistake of wearing his white belt during the final round at the Barclay’s Tournament. On the 18th hole Laird bogeyed his third attempt at the hole from 23 feet after missing a 7 footer for par. This hiccup left Laird tied with Matt Kuchar at the end of regulation to force a one hole playoff, which Kuchar won to claim the tournament. UNBELIVEABLE I KNOW
