The Bulldog Club held its annual Western Washington golf tournament yesterday at TPC. A few interesting snippets...

Pendo (who will be team captain next season) nearly won the long drive competition--his drive was the furthest by at least 100 feet, but he was dq'ed for going out of bounds, thereby depriving him of the opportunity to turn down the prize that NCAA rules would have prevented him from accepting.

Coach Few said he had been working on the Battle in Seattle yesterday morning and he was very encouraged by the progress that had been made. No deal signed yet.

Coach Rice said that since the season ended, all the guys have been extremely diligent in their off-season conditioning. He described Ira as a "monster." The other new players will be on campus for the second session of summer school.

Actually Pendo's drive wasn't "out of bounds" -- it was in the rough by a couple of feet.

Will Foster is looking good and is up to 272 lbs. When he arrived on campus for the first time 11 months ago he weighed 220.

You have to hit it in the fairway to win any long drive contest.

How far did he hit it? I wish I was young and 6'6", 220.

What are the chances of the Bulldog Club getting a tournament going over here, say at Black Rock?
I'd take a day off to play there and pony up the three bills.

Glad to hear that Pendo would've won the contest if he hadn't hit the ball into the ruff. He must have quite the drive, what was the length?? Glad that he will be team captain next year. Any word on if it will be just him or weill he have any co-captains? Also, how are any of the other guys at golf??

My drive on that hole (according to my Skycaddie G3 GPS) was 288 yards, and I was about 25 yards behind the leader at the time I came through.

Pendo was behind me, and he later said he outdrove the winner by 40 yards (but his ball ended up slightly in the rough -- thus not qualifying for long drive -- which he couldn't have won anyways because he is a student-athlete and can't take a prize). Thus, my best guess is Pendo's drive travelled 353 yards. Quite a drive considering the ground was damp.

Pendo must be "juiced." Did someone check his driver?

06-12-2007, 04:37 PM
seems like will and I are putting on similar weight :/

06-12-2007, 06:29 PM
Yeah, but how much are you benchin', nut?:)

06-12-2007, 09:14 PM
0 reps at 185 :o

06-12-2007, 10:08 PM
What a weiny! I can do 0 reps at 225!:p

Out of that whole report my favorite bit of information is Coach Rices' description of Ira being a "monster." I wouldn't guess that Leon is given much to hyperbole.

Leon also said that Ira will be great for warmups.... meaning that he's such an impressive physical specimen that opponents will be thinking to themselves --
"Uh oh, I don't want to play against THAT guy"

GoZags aka GoClang aka GoShank? ;)

Pendo's leadership and how this group is working harder than ever before stands out to me. I think these Zags are hungry for next year.

Now there's a positive swing thought.

I would say the benchmark to be labeled a Monster was set by James Dorsey of Memphis last season. Dude was a physical specimen. Wonder how Ira compares to him.

I would say the benchmark to be labeled a Monster was set by Joey Dorsey of Memphis last season. Dude was a physical specimen. Wonder how Ira compares to him.

Fixed it for you. Carry on.:)
