Springsteen’s “Shackled And Drawn” … So Good


Been beating this song up since seeing it live last November in Phoenix. Bruce Springsteen, “Shackled And Drawn” off his “Wrecking Ball” album. Looked for a live video on YouTube but everything fan-filmed was so shaky it looked like they were being chased, so here’s the studio version. Dig it.

Perez : T9 Finish At Greenbrier Classic

Pat Perez pulled in another top ten this weekend with a T6th finish at The Greenbrier Classic at The Old White TPC in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia.

Over a holiday weekend that saw Kenny Chesney and Aerosmith playing back-to-back nights for tour players and town residents, Perez stayed focus on the course and put together a solid four round run; 71-65-66-69.

The finish earned Perez 91.66 FedExCup points and over $200K, moving him from 75th to 66th in FedExCup standings and from 82nd to 67th on the overall money list.

After Friday’s bogey-free round of 65, Perez responded on “moving day” with a third round 66. An opening birdie on one set the tone and after seven straight pars, Perez birdied number nine, hitting the turn two-under on the day.

Perez went on to eagle the par-five twelfth, but came back with a bogey on thirteen – his lone blemish of the day. After a par on fourteen, Perez got one back with a birdie on the par-three fifteenth, putting him at four-under on the day, where he’d close out.

Sunday pin placements in place four the final round ensured lower scores across the board but Perez responded with a 69. After a bogey on one, Perez birdied number four and was back to even, where he’d stay until another birdie on twelve.

A bogey ensued on thirteen, bringing him back to even, but a birdie on the par-five seventeenth closed out the week and was the difference between T6th and T9th, as well as roughly 27 FedExCup points and $70K.

Next up for Perez, a return to Silvis, Illinois for the John Deere Classic. Tune in this week for all the latest from TPC Deere Run.

Can’t Beat Entertainment At Greenbrier

Kenny Chesney last night and tonight an over-the-top performance from Aerosmith. One of my all time faves. Never saw them before. Steven Tyler was in typical form and Joe Perry showed why he’s one of the best in the game. Amazing show.

Now let’s get back to the course as there’s still some work left to do.

Second Round 65 At Greenbrier Classic

After an opening round 71 on The Old White course on Thursday, Pat Perez responded strong, going five-under in round two, leaving him five strokes off the lead and T27th going into the weekend.

Early bogeys on two and five had Perez two back for the majority of round one, but a birdie on the par-five seventeenth got him back to plus-one, where he finished the day.

Friday’s scorecard proved flawless as Perez opened with a birdie on ten and picked up two more on twelve and seventeen, making the turn three-under. A quick birdie on one and another on four put him at five under on the day, where he stayed after closing the day with five straight pars.

Round Three of the Greenbrier Classic resumes Saturday morning with Perez teeing off at 11:20am ET. He is paired with Jeff Overton.
