Island Resort Championship – Thursday

June 23, 2016

My player is Madeleine Sheils.

Placed third in the pro-am. Played with the Tournament Director/ Casino Manager. Plenty of laughs and a nice gratuity at the end.

Caddies were invited to the pro-am party and I took advantage. Great food and drink.

Maddie was in charge of the LPGA Snapchat feed yesterday.

This is Sweetgrass’ version of the Bushwood caddie shack on Tuesday. The  baseball team from local Post 438 baseball team were offering their services.

From the eighteenth tee you can see the hotel and its water tower. It’s 620 yards to the the ball on top but plays 728 adjusted for elevation. Info only a caddie would appreciate. 🙂

Heard one player state that she had a great practice session late Tuesday evening. Outlasted every Asian. 🙂

I was in Boise for the Nationwide Tour back in 2003. There was a best-ball shoot-out of John Daly and Michelle Wie vs Hank Kuehne and Nancy Lopez. Maddie was there also. She was thirteen years old at the time.

There was a rules meeting this morning conducted by the new kid on the block, Tiffany Priest, and JR. Very well done.

A couple players received penalties for slow play in the final round last week. One was leading at the time.

Then there was this:
