Pennsylvania Women’s Open – Pro-Am

May 25, 2017

It was a rainy and windy pro-am but I was warm and dry.

Picked up Cindy Lacrosse for the event. Only two days work but I could use the exercise. I was getting bedsores. 🙂

Here’s the first round pairings.

Four time long drive champion Sandra Sandborg is playing this week along with giving a clinic. Her dad will be pushing the trolley and offering support. Could be one of the nicest people one could meet. No better ambassador for golf. Managed to get a selfie before she teed off on Tuesday.

Hit the local Harry’s U-Pull-It the other day for a windshield washer hose. Can’t imagine a bigger bone yard than this one. My vehicle type was in row 613 which was no where near the 500s. They ran out of room and put them on the other side of the yard. Had to go back to the office to get directions.

“Follow the wall of cars and turn left.” I was told.

Found the part I needed and installed it yesterday morning. I can see clearly now…

Twenty-seven teed it up for six spots and ties in the qualifier. 78 made it.

Talked to one of the caddies who participated in the US Open qualifier in Butler PA. The course was sopping wet but they still played it down and there were only enough yardage books for half the field. When he asked if lasers would be allowed to compensate he was told “Yardage books are a privilege.”

Upstate Jay arrived yesterday driving his interpretation of the original woody body style automobile. His wood is on the top of the car though.

Tournament Directors don’t just push paper around. I found Kate Scarpetta placing a few signs on the course.

Looks like another former tour looper makes good with his business acumen. Check out Steve Alt Design Group.

Then there was this:
