John Smoltz Ready for South Georgia Classic
By mustang6560 on 4/27/11
The tee times are out and John Smotlz is set to go Thursday at 9:05 AM in the South Georgia Classic. Smotlz received a sponsor's exemption last month to play the Nationwide Tour event in his home state of Georgia.
Smoltz isn't trying to do anything but play some good golf and I think he will do just that.
"I'm not kidding anybody. I'm not trying to reinvent the wheel here. I just enjoy golf to the point that I want to test my mettle against the best to see what my best can be," Smoltz, 43, said in a phone interview. "I have a mind-set where I am not afraid of what it looks like at the end, or the failure part of it, or what people think. What I believe is what matters the most.Having John Smotlz play in the South Georgia Classic is good for the Nationwide Tour. I understand the value and purpose of the Nationwide Tour - it's the PGA Tour's developmental tour - but to be honest, I think I would rather watch an LPGA event. At least with the LPGA, I know it's the best of the best battling it out.
But by having a big name like Smoltz - who has a realistic chance of making the cut - playing in the South Georgia Classic, it will help draw attention and interest to the Nationwide Tour. I know I'll be following him hoping he makes the cut, and then wins it all!
Good luck Smoltz-y!
