Turns out I goofed. Not exactly very proud of it. But turns out that the first round US Open leader named Justin Hicks, isn't the same Justin Hicks who played in the Buick Invitational at Torrey Pines earlier this year and gives golf lessons of which you can register online and I posted the link to that schedule earlier today. No that Justin Hicks is now officially known as Justin B Hicks.
So I wholeheartedly apologize for the error. We're not big here at the Fan Blog. We're not really even striving to be big. We just want to put out quality stuff that other fans can enjoy. Getting the facts wrong is not quality stuff.
However, it does appear that I'm not the only guy who has ever made this mistake. Here's a story that ran earlier this week in the San Diego Tribune.
And even Jason Sobel's blog on ESPN.com today noted that the PGA or USGA was confusing the two players bios. You can check out the entry at 11:59 to see what I'm referring to.
Either way, a great story emerging in Justin Hicks. He played the round of his life on Thursday, and I for one hope it continues on Friday and through the weekend. Because I'd sure like this Justin Hicks to be known as Justin Hicks, US Open champion.
And that wouldn't be bad for business for Justin B Hicks, selling his golf lessons online now would it?
