Issue.

 50.

 Breakfast Balls is officially over the hill and before we dig into another issue, I want to take a quick moment to thank each and every one of you readers out there.

 Whether it's replying to one of my insane calls for forever courses - suggestions still welcome! - or simply just making this email part of your Friday/weekend reading schedule. I appreciate you all!

 And as a token of my thanks, I'm hiding an Easter Egg in this week's issue. Click it. Answer my questions. And the first person to hit my inbox with the correct answers, will get a little somethin somethin.


The John Deere Classic

HEY, WHERE'D EVERYBODY GO?


The Tour arrives in Silvis f*$%#n' Illinois this week for the John Deere Classic.

YEE-HAW!

 Though someone forgot to tell most of the Tour because the official field is pretty damn weak. Apparently, most of the top tier players decided to go to The Scottish Open instead.

KROOKSY, GOT ANY SWING TIPS?

Maybe I was just in a good mood for the 50th, but this post hit.

 Posted without any further elaboration - the headline said it all.

 Any tips on how to keep the driver head attached at impact?

The Open: Fun Facts

IT'S BIRDIE, BAD BIRDIE

Found a great piece by Golf Digest—breaking down how Royal St. George's was a favorite haunt of James Bond author, Ian Fleming.

 So much so, the guy wrote 50 pages... (hey, that's the number of this issue!) in his 1959 classic Goldfinger, detailing a fake round between James Bond and Goldfinger at "Royal St. Marks" aka Royal St. George's.

 Maybe it's just the Bond nerd in me, but that's definitely not something you'll be getting on the broadcast next weekend. I guarantee that.
