Although I am not sure it can capture the rebelliousness and individual expression so prevalent throughout On the Road, I am still glad Kerouc’s generation-defining book has been given the green light. The Beat Generation is a time everyone should recognize as a genesis of artistic expression, considering that is where the BEATles got their name.

The Future is Now…

…in the golf world anyway. With Tiger Woods shooting a 79 (I could do that) and missing the cut this week at Quail Hollow, the door was open for someone else to emerge. Many thought Masters champ Phil Michelson would win (he was close) while others thought Billy Mayfair would turn his overnight lead into a victory.

Not so fast.
20-year-old Northern Ireland native Rory McIlroy shot a course record 62 (10 under) to win by four shots. Although he is only 20, Rory is already one of better players in the game and will only continue to get better; in others words he is the future of golf. 18-year-old Ryo Ishikawa also won today on the Japanese tour – he shot 58, the lowest round in competitive golf history. So we have McIlroy shooting a course record to win his first U.S. PGA tournament and Ishikawa shooting 58. Maybe golf can survive sans Tiger.
