ANA 2016 Pro Am

March 31, 2016

Watched a little yesterday and saw all I needed to see.

Former LPGA Commissioner Charlie Meacham played with Mike Wahn and I caught them on the ninth green. Said hi to Charlie and got this photo. Come to think of it, Carolyn Bivens would have rounded off that group nicely. 🙂

Then I waited for Caitlyn Jenner to appear. She was playing with Abby Wambach.

They played with Danielle Kang on that side and heard that after Danielle chipped in on 18, Abby took off her shoes and jumped into Poppie’s Pond.

To all who have experienced this tournament when it was truly a premier event, it will always be known as “The Dinah”.

Volunteer Dave will be working the tee on number nine the first two rounds only. He was notified that he may have to wear a wireless tablet around his neck on a lanyard. It is to provide access to real time scoring for the players and caddies if requested. Something new the LPGA is trying this year. I guess they wish to know how many Lydia is ahead. 😉

Mutt and Jeff (Matt and Dave) are still running the caddie area and it’s been a steady downhill slide for the last twenty-five years. I thought of getting an afternoon pro-am loop but after hearing that only one caddie got work in the morning, futility became the word of the day. Went to Sam’s Club for a fill-up and a slice instead. The weather turned nasty anyway. Would not have been a fun time.

Flipper was in the house looking for a loop. Wonder if he has the FBI on speed dial?
