Symetra Tour – SRHF Classic – 2017

May 9, 2017

The actual name of this event is the SELF REGIONAL HEALTHCARE FOUNDATION CLASSIC but it’s too long to put in the title.

My player is Jiayi Zhou.

Picked up Jiayi through the caddie grapevine after a round of caddie musical chairs. She played a practice round yesterday with a caddie on the front and mom on the back.

I only met Jiayi briefly yesterday and of course we missed each other when she arrived today. She was done hitting balls when Tom Borwick texted that she was chipping. DOH!

It wasn’t enough that Maddie let me go after only one event but today she sailed a ball over my head out of the practice bunker. It was the only one she caught thin. 🙂

There was a double pro-am today so we just practiced. A shotgun pro-am with the Legends is scheduled for tomorrow so we’ll play nine afterward.

LPGA ‘Founders’ documentary heading to big screen – How ironic. When Mike Whan first became Commissioner, he asked for suggestions on how to improve the tour. I recalled the two hour 50th anniversary documentary special – televised on the Golf Channel – narrated by Jamie Farr. I suggested that it be mandatory viewing for all rookies to show them how the LPGA was founded. Never happened.
