5 Thoughts on the Liberty Bowl

Charles Howell’s triumphant return to the field:

Former Oklahoma State golfer Charles Howell III has had his fair share of difficulties during his career in the PGA. Now, after 4,292 days without a win, will return to the field in the Sentry Tournament of Champions. Despite all the challenges, he told Golf Channel that there’s nothing he would change.

“I wouldn’t [trade careers with Daly]. As painful as that is to say, because he’s won majors. I am proud of the consistency I’ve had and the finishes I’ve had,” Howell said. “When I went to Oklahoma State I wanted to see how good I could be. But if you’d have said, ‘Charles you’re going to have a 20-year career on the PGA Tour,’ I would have signed up in a heartbeat for that.” {Golf Channel}

Morgan Hoffman is engaged:

Congrats to former Cowboy golfer Morgan Hoffman on his engagement. He ended 2018 on a high note after a difficult rode battling muscular dystrophy.
