See Ya Next Year

Well, maybe not me but some of my buds will.

McChrystal wins Symetra finale; 10 earn LPGA cards

While parking a car for one of our guests, something I’ve haven’t heard for many a year filled the airways via his Sirius Radio connection. It was the Catholic daily mass in Latin. Wow! Memories of pew-sitting in Cleveland’s St. John Cantius Church flittered through my brain.

Picked-up a single loop just before quitting time. A 9-holer turned into touching them all but it was much more than that. Basically, an 18 hole playing lesson by yours truly. Oh, the pressure.

Lorie Kane Wins Legends Championship at French Lick Resort

A Legendary Week

September 27, 2013

The LPGA Legends Tour is in French Lick IN for the Humana event. On theirs bags are some legends in their own right. Here are a few classic combos.

Mark Scott & Liselotte Neumann; Motorcycle Jim & Betsy King; Donald Sneeden & Cathy Johnston-Forbes. There’s a few more but I forgot who. If anyone knows, please comment.

After glancing at the field, looks like I looped for 23 of them at one time or another.

On Holiday

September 22, 2013

It just happens that a quirk in the schedule has given me a stretch of inactivity until the middle of next week.

Today is a scheduled day off, tomorrow a paid day off for perfect attendance and scheduled days off on Tuesday and Wednesday adds up to a mini vacation. Sweet! Rain curtailed play yesterday and only three guests showed. Otherwise, it would have been five in a row and not four.

When I come back it’ll be a different story. We’re in for a big week. The Slavic Invitational returns for their annual visit.

Congratulations to Team NJ who won the USGA State Team Championship! Alice Chen, Cindy Ha and Tara Fleming (shouldn’t that be Tara Kim or Lee) took home the crown. Tara is a former LPGA pro who I had the pleasure of working for on many occasion.

The fifth major is officially in the books. Too bad Lydia didn’t take the crown.

Did Mika make a caddie change? Where is Cheeseburger Chad? He might have been some help today. Shot 79. From the penthouse to the outhouse.

They took a page from baseball and used tarps to cover the greens overnight. Only received .5 inches of rain which was less than expected.
