Evian Masters – Round One

My Player Is Seul-A Yoon

Three over today. No birds. Papa wasn’t pleased. He has “a fire inside” according to Seul-A and refused to eat lunch. Afterwards, it was off to the rock pile for her and the beer garden for me. Two short ones sufficed. I’ll be up before dawn for our 7:11 tee time. Our warm-up starts 1 1/2 hours before.

Seul-A favors a tart, mixed-berry drink when she plays. Took a sip on every hole out of the stainless thermos I had to carry.Winking smile

We played lift clean and place. Don’t see that changing anytime soon.

Storm cloudOne thing is for certain, weathermen suck no matter where you are. A 10% probability of rain turned into 100%! Some groups played every hole in the crap. It was only around  4-5 for us.

Mobile phoneIt’s a high tech world and here is no exception. When entering the chalet (restaurant) our credentials are scanned with smart phone devices to see if entry is permitted. Our name is displayed and we’re given the right to pass or not.

PlateDon’t get me wrong, the food here is great but I’d like to see some meatloaf, smashed taters and apple pie à la mode mode just once.

A fly in the ointment: No practice rounds will be allowed after the pro-am at the British Open as in the past. Since it is played on Tuesday, the players not in the pro-am and having their clubs transported by truck, via the service provided, may not tee it up until Wednesday. The truck arrives 6 PM Monday if it’s on schedule. There is plenty of daylight though so a late nine may be in the offing for many.

Then there was this:
