My Player is Moira Dunn
Played eleven holes with Boo. Will finish the rest tomorrow prior to the pro-am.
As I stated last week, the application for the China visa was FUBAR but as it turns out, it was all for naught. That’s because the whole event is FUBAR. It was cancelled! The players will hear the details in a meeting tonight.
It’s like I just can’t get away from Michelle Wie stories. I watched her enter the clubhouse and refusing to show the doormen her ID. She just said “I’m a player.” and just kept walking. Never even looked them in the eye. You should have seen the expression on their faces.
Recently, we’ve noticed that reachable par fives have been lengthened. Found out it it’s to speed up the pace of play. No more waiting for groups to clear the green.
Speaking of greens, the ones here are superb. They switched over to Champion Bermuda and they’re like carpets.
More qualifier info: Played with seventeen year old amateur Janie Jackson in the qualifier. She absolutely bombed it! Was hitting wedges all day. Shot two under, finishing first, but should have been more. Suggested the belly putter to her caddie/dad when we finished. Hey, he asked.
We made the turn yesterday in 2:23 which I thought wasn’t bad but with six holes to go, we were three behind! To be fair, DIna Ammaccapane was in the group in front of us. She plays so fast, it might as well have been a twosome.

Then thee was this:
