On a lighter side of things. As a huge fan of Seinfeld. I couldn't believe this happened a few days ago. I had no idea until a buddy told me this yesterday.

Unfortunately, Costanza was eliminated from advancing into the match play portion. And Newman lost his first match. BUT - Kremer is still alive in the round of 32.

19 players from the first 1-2-3 LIV events have been bumped out. If they were banned by the PGA and now essentially banned from LIV not sure what they will do. I guess they could travel and play in any LIV qualifying events. LIV appears to be like a social club invitation only.

What a shame it was that G. Norman would not give John Daly a spot. John didn't want $1 in contract gifts of millions. He only wanted to play and have his son caddie for him. Norman told him he was too old.

I recognize 30 names who are in the LIV field. It's getting to be a competitive field when compared to the PGA tour where I can't name 20 of them, maybe even 15.

I suspect one factor to this is that LIV started by taking familiar veterans from the PGA - particularly those that had success, but is starting to succumb to time/age. e.g. Mickelson, Poulter, Westwood, etc. One can say even DJ may be past his peak. So yes, very familiar names... because they've been around for so long. But how much longer? Cam Smith and Bryson are probably their biggest "future" stars IMO.

That said - one of the top amateurs is turning pro with LIV (and the Rahm rumors). I think this is a trend to keep an eye on.... If USGA Amateur winners start going to LIV...

There seems to be some cream in the LIV field and a handful of 6-8 names may take turns winning.

Peter Uihlein

I had not heard of him until today as he stands in 3rd place in the LIV event. He was suspended by the PGA and had played in 11 majors, missed the cut in all but three and best finish in those three was a tie for 42nd. He won twice in 2013, once in 2017 and once in 2021. That's his resume.

How he ended up with the LIV not sure. That could be a player who is thrown out of the field of 48 at some point.
I hope he wins or finishes third since the cash may come in handy when Norman dumps him and the PGA won't let him back in. I guess there is some Asian tour he could play for a living.

I glanced at the standings for the Champions Tour event today and Ernie Els in the lead. I thought about his resume and went to look. According to Wikipedia and my calculator he has won 4 majors and top 10 in a whopping 31 majors.
