Golf Starz Take Web.com Finals – Albertsons Boise Open presented by Kraft Nabisco
Golf is back baby. As we are moving from summer to fall. Baseball to football, we still have a couple more weeks of high quality championship golf ahead of us. If you have not seen are hot take on leg three of the FedEx Cup, make sure you check it out here. As always show the world you know more about golf than us and comment your winners.
On to the tourney. There is something so pure about the Web.com. Guys battling it out to get their chance to live out their childhood dreams of teeing it up week in and week out. After Justin Thomas won a week ago, his first reaction was he couldn’t wait to get home to congratulate Tom Lovelady on securing his tour card. Justin Thomas, undoubtedly, having one of the best years of golf we have seen in a long time, off the heels of winning the PGA championship and putting himself in a position to win the FedEx Cup. Couldn’t wait to congratulate his roommate on getting his tour card. Let that sink in…Pretty amazing
Also, these guys are very active on social media which we love.
Now on to this week’s tourney. The 28th Albertsons Boise Open is the longest running Web.com tour event. 75 of the top Web.com guys battling it out with 75 guys from the PGA Tour at Hillcrest Country Club should lead to an interesting week of golf. You can see a layout of the course here. The field is stacked and filled with names we all know and guys we will soon find out about. Stuart Appleby, Willy Wilcox, Tom Lovelady, Peter Uihlein, Zac Blair, Hunter Mahan, and former major champion Angel Cabrera, just to name a few. You can check out the whole field here.
The course itself is going to be challenging for sure. From the rough (check out this^ video from the Idaho Statesmen) to the tight fairways surrounded by trees. With a million-dollar purse, we are in store for another week of great golf on the Web.com tour.
