Chehalis Represented in Rick Reilly’s Mailbag

July 10, 2011 in Uncategorized

One Chehalis golf fan had his e-mail to’s Rick Reilly posted online in Reilly’s latest “Go Fish” magazine this week.

HERE is the link to the mailbag.

Reilly, former a writer and columnist at Sports Illustrated, is now a featured columnist for ESPN’s Web site, and is one of the most well-known and well-read sportswriters in America. His mailbag features e-mails and responses to his columns and posts, typically with a note from Reilly on the matter.

Bruce Baskin, of Chehalis, wrote:

After McIlroy wins ONE tournament, albeit a major with a dominant wire-to-wire performance, golf is saved? Puh-leeeze! The kid’s photogenic enough (he reminds me of Danny in “Caddyshack”), he’s proven he’s not afraid of microphones and he’s obviously got talent, but one European Tour win in 72 starts since 2007 and one PGA win doesn’t have me calling the Vatican and telling them to get the white-smoke machine ready.

He was writing, of course, about Rory McIlroy, the “new” golf phenom who won the U.S. Open. Good call on the Caddyshack look, Bruce. He’s got that going for him.
