Heading into the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles, everyone assumed that China would take the men's gymnastic gold medal after they won the 1983 World Championship. That was before they ran into Scott Johnson and the USA men's team, the "Boys of Summer" as they became called, who emerged from nowhere to win the title. This historic win marked the first team medal of any kind since the early 1930's. Scott Johnson was also a member of the 1968 Seoul Olympic Men's Gymnastics team where he served as captain of the USA team.
Following the Seoul Olymoics, Johnson was a finalist as one of the 10 amateur athletes nominated for the prestigious James E. Sullivan Award. This award is known as the OSCAR of sports awards and is presented annually by the United States Amateur Athletic Union to the most outstanding amateur athlete from any sport in the United States. The 2008 recipient of the Sullivan Award was Tim Tebow of the University of Florida.
"4U Management and Tommy Limbaugh affords me the opportunity to reach every professional goal I currently have" commented Scott from his Winter Park, Florida home Wednesday afternoon.
"Scott Johnson is a true champion and we have a history of representing champions" added Tommy Limbaugh, President of 4U Management. "This has all of the markings of a perfect marriage."

While walking the South Course at Torrey Pines yesterday, I witnessed golfer after golfer trying to figure out the kikuyu grass. This grass is thick, nasty and without question, unpredictable. The golfer is never quite sure what his ball will do.
The setting was spectacular and the crowd electric. My day began standing behind the #1 tee watching the world’s top 3 players; Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Adam Scott begin their round. Lee Janzen teed off in the group behind Tiger, Phil and Adam, which afforded me an incredible view of events seldom witnessed on the golf course. The spectator numbers were enormous, maybe 10,000 following that group.Lee played well the front 9 with a +1, then fell back to +4, tied for 64th. I followed Ben Crane 9 holes after having followed Lee for his first 9 holes and will do the same today.
The weather today is similar to yesterday, as good as it gets! Beautiful, blue skies, slight breeze off the Pacific, and in the high 60’s. Should be another exciting day on the course.

I planned to meet Dr. Dick Coop at the practice green at 11:30. The problem with that plan is that Tiger Woods walked onto the practice green at 11:20. When he appeared it seemed as though half of the fans at Torrey Pines showed up and clogged the pathways around the green where there was no movement. Cameras, which are allowed on practice days, were snapping pictures from every angle possible. It was difficult to Find Dr. Coop. We both emerged from the crowd at about the same time.
I will be following Lee Janzen for 9 holes Thursday and Ben Crane for 9 holes. They both tee off Thursday morning. Lee is playing in the group right behind Tiger, Phil Mickelson, and Adam Scott. I am so glad he is right behind instead of being right ahead of this group. The stampede of people would be too much. The predictions are that this threesome will have more spectators following them than any pairing in golf history.
We had dinner with Lee and Bev Janzen tonight. It still interesting to see how many people want Lee's autograph or picture taken with him when he goes out to eat. He is looking forward to this tournament, having finished tied for 13th last year and holding two U.S. Open victories.
Lee really likes the setup of the golf course and thinks it is going to be a great tournament.
