Great name, wrong sport

Postcard From Spring Training

March 06, 2007|By PETER SCHMUCK

Mark Wilson won the $990,000 first prize in a four-man playoff at the Honda Classic at PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens, but only after a guy named Boo Weekley missed a 3-foot putt Sunday that would have given him the victory and basically made his life.

I realize I should be the last person to comment on somebody else's funny name, but you have to admit that Boo Weekley is a pretty odd moniker for a golfer.

When I first heard it, I thought it was the Orioles' 2007 marketing slogan.
