Ricoh British Open – Tuesday

My Player is Moira Dunn

It’s pro-am day. If you’re not in, no playing the course before or after. It was a double-shotgun this year.

I met Moira at the course for breakfast then hit the rock pile. Chipping and putting afterward.

Had fish and chips for dinner at Murrys on Gray Street. Just a short walk into town. Had to at least once. I was low on oil.Open-mouthed smile

SunStruck gold with the weather today. Best I’ve ever seen here. Sunny and a light breeze.

Borrowed £10 from Louie yesterday. Had to add 20p for the vig  when I paid up this morning. There’s a reason he owns half of Deland.Money

Some caddies just won’t take no for an answer. It took one LPGA rookie almost a half an hour to axe her looper today. He kept trying to talk her out of it. Looked like the “It’s not you, it’s me.” episode out of Seinfeld. The dramatics went on and on with her mom paying very close attention. He finally agreed and put the bag up. Heard she’ll be taking a local.

Ran into former LPGA pro Diane Barnard. Worked for her once many moons ago in St. Louis. She’s now working with the LET Access Series which is the counterpart of the Futures Tour. Still looks great.

CameraAlso saw Stephanie Croce. Yes “Little Rick”, your hello was passed on. The Nerd will try and take her pic and send along.

Another former LPGA pro, who grew up just around the corner from the Carnoustie Course, is looping this week. Kathryn Imrie is toting the sack for Jenny Shin.

This travel-woe-trifecta may take the prize. One of the caddies had a scheduled pick-up from tournament transportation in Evian on Monday morning to catch his flight in Geneva. They whiffed the pick-up so he missed his flight. Of course, his connection was toast also so a new ticket had to be purchased. He then missed the last train to Carnoustie and had to pony-up $250 for a taxi! Besides all the lost time, it cost him a cool grand for the extra arrangements.

I finally got some sleep last night but still a little groggy. Maybe one more day. I’ll try counting someBlack SheepBlack SheepBlack Sheep
