Dr. Joe's Notes: End of the Year
November 10, 2008
It's the end of golf season, and the last couple of tournaments held special interest for me. Having worked at several tournaments this year with Tim Petrovic, there was some concern about him keeping his PGA Tour exempt status. He needed to finish in the top 125 on the money list, and he had languished in the low 120's for a few weeks, barely making or missing cuts. He missed the cut in Las Vegas and Scottsdale, doing a little too much thinking about technique. We used the theme of keep it simple for the last two tournaments, resulting in finishes of 18th and 10th places to assure his exemption. His finish in the last tournament of the year was his third top ten of 2008, and the icing on the cake, boosting his ranking to 107 on the list and assuring entry into all the full field events of 2009.

Dr. Joe's Note: Ryder Cup Final Thoughts
September 22, 2008
 Paul Azinger's work as captain of the American team had a powerful impact on his players' state of mind. He got them ready to play, and they defeated a European team that was better on paper. Look at the cast of characters and you can see why Zinger's down-home pump them up, no fancy frills approach worked. Just ask Boo Weekley.
Uncharacteristically, their team's top players didn't perform well. Padraig Harrington had been a bit off his game in recent weeks, Sergio wasn't feeling 100%, and Lee Westwood didn't make a charge. Those are the Euro's top players and account for a lot of points when they don't win.
Nick Faldo got his two picks to play well, Poulter especially. One can only wonder whether having Darren Clarke on the team would have give the boost in energy that they needed to offset Azinger's "13th man," the energetic support of the fans.

Dr. Joe's Notes: Ryder Cup Midpoint

 Very impressive win by Anthony Kim. Boo Weekley playing great for the first 10 holes. Paul Azinger did a great job getting everyone in the right frame of mind. Interestingly, it is the two leaders on each team that are a little off their games - Sergio and Phil. Phil not putting well is a window into his state of mind - a little tight, perhaps trying a little too hard.
Americans have a lead, but it's not over til it's over.
