FireKeepers Championship – Round Three

Lost a few more today but I it was a good first week on the Symetra Tour.

Winner, winner and the chicken dinner goes to Madeleine Sheils and her looper Wayne. Congrats to both.

Played with Kristy Obrien today in a twosome. I noticed the Crooked Stick logo on her bag and asked if she knew “Speedway”. Silly question. Of course she did.

During yesterday’s round (or the day before) one of the caddies felt what seemed like a vibration coming from the bag on his shoulder. Figuring it might be his player’s cell phone, he decided to investigate. Turned out much worse. The top of the container housing her protein shake had come loose and the contents spilled onto her three month old Bushnell laser. The liquid shorted the electronics and the laser was a total loss.

One facet of golf etiquette is shunned out here but for good reason. It speeds up play. Playing out of turn is common. I also noticed players don’t always go to the right side of the tee. What ever is the closest suffices. No one seems to mind.

    I’m amazed that a player would keep a rangefinder in her / his bag during tournament play. A single brain phart could be disastrous.

      Don’t see that happening pcb_duffer. They use yardage books or the numbers painted on the fairway. Lasers are used before and after the round on the range so it would be too inconvenient to leave them behind.

        Fair enough, and that’s yet another argument for using a professional bag man as opposed to a random chump like me.

    Which is the “right” side of the tee? Out of your players sight when addressing the ball or what exactly? Sorry for the dumb question. Thanks

      Right vs left. Since most players are right handed we stand on the right side so we are not to the player’s back.
