Golfweek magazine reported Woodland will start working with Harmon immediately. This follows an awkward offseason in which Woodland left agent Blake Smith of Hambric Sports Management to sign with Mark Steinberg at Excel Sports Management. Smith is the son of Woodland’s coach, Randy Smith, who thought it best that he and the big hitter part ways.
“I like my foursome. Let’s put it that way,” Harmon said.
LAY OFF THE ACCELERATOR: Johnny Miller was quick to point out how different he and Nick Faldo were as players, and he said this with some regret. Miller aimed at every flag he saw. Faldo was more of a strategist.
“Nick was the ultimate in restricting the temptation, playing a cautious game _ middle of the green, swing easy, basically think his way around in a non-exciting way,” Miller said. “And that lent itself to winning majors.”
Miller won 25 times on the PGA Tour but had only two majors _ the 1973 U.S. Open at Oakmont (lest anyone forget, he shot 63 in the final round) and the 1976 British Open at Royal Birkdale over a rising teenage star named Seve Ballesteros.
“I played just the opposite,” Miller said. “I hit it as hard as I could, fired at every flag stick, and that lends itself to having train wrecks in the majors. If I had to do it over again, I’d have two gas pedals _ one of the majors, one for the regular tournaments. I never figured that out.”
HAT FOR SALE: Scott Piercy’s hat looks like a blank billboard, which is about what it is.
Piercy has Titleist on one side of the hat and FootJoy on the other. The front was supposed to be another corporate sponsor but the deal fell through. Piercy, the Reno-Tahoe Open winner, wasn’t going to give it away for free.View Entire Story
