Calcavecchia: Enough of Amateur Hour
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Mark Calcavecchia gave the most entertaining press conference of the week so far after playing in the FBR Open pro-am on Wednesday.
"I'm starting to feel better every day," Calcavecchia said, alluding to an Oct. 14 operation on his knee that he characterized as minor. "Of course, it will be nice to play golf [Thursday] with two other pros for a change. Jesus. Five days in a row of chops. Four days at the Hope--mind you, they were all a bunch of nice guys, but I've seen enough bad shots in the last five rounds I've played to last me all year."
Calcavecchia said he was quickly up and walking around after his arthroscopic surgery, but that the knee led to a few swing problems that he's currently trying to fix with instructor Peter Kostis.
"I'm trying to correct those, and the knee feels pretty good," Calc said. "Not great mind you, but really from the knees down are my main problem right now, and of course from the neck up is always a problem, too. And my belly could be a little smaller, too. Other than that, I actually feel pretty decent."
