Thousands of really good golfers aren't even good enough to get in the field, and this isn't a prime tour event. Just playing on tour is quite an accomplishment. Most top college players never do.

I was thinking the same thing.

Wow, another snarky comment about Ben. Qualifying & playing in the tournament should be appreciated, not ridiculed. To have two KSU alums in a PGA tournament is something of which to be proud.

After winning The Open Ben has to apologize to no one. However he made a decision not to make golf his full time job. I think we were all expecting a better career after that victory and feel a bit let down.

All very true. And not that you suggested I was, but I am not asking for an apology.

All I was trying to do was explain why Ben gets some criticism at times. I know I've done it a few times. You getting an apology never crossed my mind.

He did win 4 PGA events. Only 240 golfers all-time have won 5 or more.

He won a major.

He finished in the Top 10 in four majors including the win and a tie for 2nd.

He played on a winning Ryder Cup team.

Given how hard it is to play on the top level (look at Jon Mills who is a great golfer, but had limited success on the PGA tour), Ben has had a wonderful career and has been a great ambassador and supporter of Kent State.

Why anybody would have anything bad or obnoxious to say about Ben is beyond me.

You only know what you know. Which makes your statement true. It is beyond you.

And truthfully, IMO, I don't think a guy who hardly works at his craft is a good representative of KSU.

Ah, the Dannyb we all love. It was soooo nice when you went away for a month because you were so offended by Gflash calling out a player after a bad game, yet you feel free to go **** all over Curtis. What's all the hate about anyway. It's almost like he knocked up your wife after you got the vasectomy, except I know Ben Curtis is too classy to cheat on his own wife.

Ben isn't an undergrad. He is an adult and therefore someone I have no problem expressing my opinion about.
