My Player Is Birdie Kim
We were first off the back nine before the pro-am. Done by breakfast.
A match made in heaven? Or hell? It all depends. One player/caddie combo no one expected to see, had some wondering how long the twain shall stay together. When asked, the player responded thusly. “Two weeks or until I kill him”. This also qualifies for quote of the week.
They all look alike? Not really. Just ask Pat Hurst. When leaving the chipping area the other day, the volunteer shuttle driver called her Christina.
Fancy that: I’m working for Birdie and my roommate for Maria Hernandez. Birdie and Maria are staying together in private housing.
Eternal optimism: As I mentioned in a previous post, many Nationwide caddies are toting this week and some expect to be here long term. One was asked what the length of his employ was and responded “The rest of the year". Out here, that may be just a matter of hours! Had a guy stay with us in Hawaii a few years back and he had similar expectations. After one week, he was off the radar. Wonder if he ever made it back to the mainland?
Don’t go there: Plenty of work was afforded to the mounds of fescue that dot the course and give it that links look. Heard they totally dug them up and sodded ‘em over. If you hit one in the junk, you’ll be lucky to find it let alone play it.
No Rescue From The Fescue
