2nd Stage Qualifier 2017 – Round 3

October 21, 2017

My player is Angela Then.

Not a good day. No birds. Shot +5. Still in the mix though.


Had a great time at Gabby Then’s birthday party yesterday. It’s not until tomorrow but the timing wasn’t right. Wowed ‘em with caddie lore.


Many thanks to Bully for organizing the festivities at The Sand Trap Sports Bar. Cake and balloons included.

Fairways and greens. Good advice.

Wonder what she’s wishing for? 🙂

2nd Stage qualifier 2017 – Round 2

October 20, 2017

My player is Angela Then.

Didn’t hit it as pure as yesterday but still only shot +1. Birdied our last which is always sweet.


The Panther seems to play tougher of the two. It seems to catch more wind and the greens are firmer especially fourteenth. It’s fairly new and balls land like they were on the runway of Sarasota International.


Looks like Bully put the hammer down today. Shot –5 on The Bobcat. The braddah can still go.


Ya got to know dem rules. Case in point. The twelfth hole on The Panther is a short dogleg right with a water hazard bordering the left side of the landing area. One player in our group hit three wood off the tee but turned it over into the hazard. She took her two club relief and dropped the ball.

She then announced that the ball rolled out of the two club measurement and asked if she should re-drop. Another player (not mine) said yes and before the situation struck me, she had ball in hand.

I walked over and and asked if it had rolled closer to the hole and she said no. I indicated that she had two club lengths of roll after the ball hits the ground and she looked dumbfounded. In fact, I was the only one in the group that knew the rule including the other two caddies. After calling for an official, she had to add one more shot for picking it up.


I was treated to the buffet lunch in the clubhouse and the salmon and New England clam chowder were spectacular. Topped it off with a little peach cobbler.


We hit the range after lunch and Angela said I could chill. I noticed an elderly lady on the bench behind us and told Angela that I was going see if she would invite me home.

After a few minutes the lady departed and my boss headed for the practice green with her sister and coach. I wasn’t far behind and when I arrived, made the following statement. “Got her number. I better call before she dies”. Everyone cracked up.

October 19, 2017

My player is Angela Then.

-2 on The Bobcat today. Good start.


I’m low in the condo but Upstate and Phil are only one back.


More player/caddie match-ups. Jorge with Margarita Ramos, Benito with Samantha Troyanovich and Louie with Stacy Bregman.


Caddie quote of the week so far. As I was walking The Panther course yesterday, a player hit a good shot to the seventeenth green and her caddie responded with “I could feel that shot before you hit it”. Splain that to me Lucy!


Then there was this:
