After being reminded by ‘Jaybird’ of the schedule (week off after Canada then The Open) and realizing my plans to find a bag for the Manulife entailed a 1,160 mile one-way trip, I reconsidered (actually it hit me like a kick in the groin) that going back on tour now was ludicrous.
Think I’ll spend a few more weeks here and see if a bag is available at the Walmart event. It’s not too far and the rent is reasonable. There’s another week off after then the British. I can return home then go to Toledo if I wish.
Luckily my apartment wasn’t let to another party but it was close. If the new tenant would have sent a deposit, I would have been on the street, or in the car, depends on your perspective.
It was great touching base with a few old friends. Plenty of new faces but the behind the scenes bull crap remains the same.
Everyone possible is in the field this week. Jamie Hullett was planning on playing the Symetra event but is now on her way here. Better hurry, she’s in the first group.
Another last minute entry was Ashli Bunch. She’s next to last so take your time Ashli. BTW ‘The Nerd’ got the loop.
Came home to find my internet and TV service was on the fritz. After calling Cable One and following the automated troubleshooter to no avail, I was handed off to a real live body. He couldn’t determine the problem so a technician was sent.
Less than an hour later he arrived which has to be some kind of record. The trouble was found and fixed in short order.
The Open qualifier held in Virginia, following last week’s event, found ninety contestants vying four five spots. Two players were tied for the last opening and went into a playoff. After nine holes of dead even play, it was called for darkness. The final results following resumption the next morning are so.
Rebecca Lee-Bentham – CANADA
Alt – Sarah-Jane Smith – AUSTRALIA
Then there was this:
After Safeway exits LPGA Classic, a Portland company saves the day – Truly great news. Hate to lose such a historic event.
