Things I think I know ...
I think that Peter Uihlein, recently-crowned AJGA player of the year, must be related to Titleist boss Wally Uihlein. The last name kind of gives it away. Does Peter play Nike or Taylor-Made equipment? Ping?
I think that geometry somehow could have proven that Michelle Wie’s drop was legal. It’s all about spinning the globe on the proper axis.
I think that Tom McKnight got screwed out of a spot in the Chuck Schwab season-ender by the tour. He’s top-30 in Schwab points, but cannot play because he’s 31st on the money list. Can you imagine number 31 on the LPGA, PGA or Nationwide tours looking for a new job? Reminds me of my history prof at Wake Forest, who used a 5-point grading scale. 79 got you an F, and my 87 was only good for a C (Wake didn’t give + or - in the 1980s.)
I think that I want to play the Isleworth collegiate. You get an mp3 player, oakley shades, and a $100 Isleworth gift certificate, which I think buys kleenex and windex to clean the shade.
I think that my man Lonnie Nielsen is leading the Chuck Schwab cup. If you haven’t heard the news, he was my teaching pro for two years in western New York, until he left for the Champs Tour. Three rounds to go, Lonnie. Hang tough!
I think that I’m done.

And the rules weren't changed or altered, the qualifier was always the top 30 money winners, not point winners that gain access to the next year full exemption and an invite to the Schwab Cup in Sonoma, where the points are then used to give out a prize by the sponsor. RW Eaks deserved what he worked so hard for over the years and if he figures out how to "win", the Champions tour will see one of the most dominate players in golf that it has seen in years. His peers all say, he may have more raw talent than has been seen in years; god help them all if he learns how to harness it!
And coming from a fellow Hawkeye, good luck to Lonnie in the years to come. Nothing more fun than to be in the crowd as he walks by and yell GO HAWKS and see his aknowledgement.
How cannot you not like a guy with the nickname "the black hole"? R.W. did what he had to do. Call him gutsy, insane, or fluffy, it doesn't much matter. He took McKnight's spot away in the top 30 on the Money List, and that's competition. Haas did the same thing with his performance over the last month. McKnight should get buy next year on q-school, sponsor's exemptions and good play. My old pro, Lonnie Nielsen, was 34th or so last year, did not improve his position in q-school last November, yet made enough this year for a full exemption next year.
