Garden City Classic 2017 – Pro-Am

September 6, 2017

My player is Kendall Dye.

We were in the morning wave. Three amateurs and only took four hours. Sweet! Even earned some tippage.


It was one of the calmest days I’ve experienced here in the past three years. That will end when the tournament begins. 😦


Ever here of Holcomb Kansas? It’s eight miles west of here and back in 1959, was in the national spotlight. A family of four were brutally murdered and the crime boosted Truman Capote to national prominence. His book, “In Cold Blood”, first published in 1966, details the 1959 murders of the Herbert Clutter family in the small farming community of Holcomb.


One LPGA player didn’t realize there was more than one Portland in the US. Booked her flight from Portland Maine to Indy. Oops!


There was a shit storm of comments on the LPGA caddie message board concerning what the standard salary on tour should be. Some players (who don’t have a regular looper) are only offering $800 but some caddies think it should be in the $1300-$1500 range. Very interesting banter to say the least.


The China event, originally scheduled to be played in Beijing the first week of October, has been moved to Shanghai.
