Caddie Sighting

March 31, 2014

Congrats to Kendall Dye for her Symetra Tour win and to Debbie Raso on the bag. That’s correct you old timers, Debbie Raso. Haven’t heard that name in ages.

Kendall Dye and Debbie Raso

Brooke Pancake@BrookePancake Missed getting into Kraft by one person! But that player had two hole-in-ones and two hole out eagles from the fairway this weekend! Wow!

I doubt if anyone showed to play at Fallen Oak. I’m sure the bunkers were washed out once more. Bet they can’t wait for the new system to be installed.

Had today off so I took my car in for plugs and wires to D&H Auto Repair. They gave me a ride to the Waffle House and after breakfast, walked the rest of the way home. Haven’t been to the “Awful House” in a couple years. No changes.

March 26, 2014

Putting in a normal eight hour shift seemed just too easy after MGRC hell week but my body clock will soon normalize.

We’re using the Better Billy Bunker Method in the renovation of Fallen Oak’s 83 bunkers. Looks very promising. Will eliminate washouts which is a persistent plague in this rainy part of the country.

Besides the bunkers, the fourteenth green will be made smaller, some tees redone and a few other things to complete the project.

Another 12+ hour day but the craziness is finally over. We go back to normal tomorrow.

Everyone caddied and some of the staff even played  for missing contestants.

Maggert Wins!

Here’s a quarter. You know what to do.

It was an 81.5 hour week for me but it still isn’t over. Some of the seniors will be staying over for a pro-am here. Another 5am course arrival for our entire crew is scheduled.

Bobby Wadkins was the first one on the range after the second round. Asked how the course was, he answered “The greens are perfect but the fairways are too soft. There was mud on every shot”.

Just had to do this. Actually, I was moon gazing at the time.

2014 MGRC Round Two

March 22, 2014

Freddy fell out of the lead but only by one. His back looked tender on the range warming up.

Another easy day on the rock pile for me. Tomorrow may be a different story. Rain expected and they’re splitting tees to try and beat it.

Our ball washer has been on its last legs and finally bit the dust this morning. A call to another course had us using theirs by the afternoon.

If I go back on tour for the summer, I have housing in Waterloo CN. A volunteer on the range lives there and will be working the LPGA event. She invited me so stay with her and hubby.

David Frost got DQ’d for removing a pebble in a bunker according to his caddie. Told our guy in the cart barn “We do it all the time”. WTF!

The other day on the range, Tom Kite came over for some balls and participated in the obligatory social protocol with my co-worker by inquiring how he was.

“Blessed”. was his response.

“Cause you’re working with me”. I added.

That had Kite waking away laughing.

March 21, 2014

Split tees had us actually enjoying the sunset on the drive home. Tomorrow they’re all off the first tee. I work from ten till close but in the cart barn instead of the range.

BTW the range never looked so good during this event. We did a great job. 🙂

Freddy Couples leads with a 66.

Cheyenne Woods@Cheyenne_Woods With the one and only, Renee Powell. I’ve been so blessed to get to know this woman over the past few…

As I Said

March 20, 2014

The last two days have been brutal, Up at 3 am home at 8:30 pm. Put in 48 hours this week so far with three days to go.

Tweet from Angela Stanford@Angela_Stanford @lpgafounders week is here! Y’all know what that means…..%50 of what I earn this week goes to the @4ASFoundation #letsgo

Looks like it’ll be zero. +8 opening round.

Looks like there was a parking snafu at the Founders Cup. Ran out of spots for the afternoon players. Caddie cars getting towed to valet. Only thing stopping them from going to the pound was club repairman Paul.

2014 MGRC – Tuesday

March 18, 2014

Fished staging the pro-am carts and worked the range until my departure at four.

Ran into Mike Eggling. Still on tour as a club manufacturer’s rep.

The next two pro-am days will be brutal. 4:30 am start and stay till closing. 😦
