Danielle Downey Classic-Round 2

July 20, 2019

My player is Hyemin Kim.

We needed to ace our final hole to make the cut. I’ll be watching The Open instead.


Hyemin has a different looper next week but I’ll be on the bag the two after that. It will be parking lot duty for me.


We were having a conversation on the putting green the other day and ‘The Nerd’ asked, “What was that movie where the guy kept getting younger?” His Player, Alice Chen, answered, “Benjamin Button”. When Hyemin heard the response, she queried, “Benjamin Butthole?” I don’t know what to make of that.


Then there was this:

Paul Boehmer, the LPGA’s ‘club guy’

Deal to sell golf courses at LPGA headquarters likely dead


Danielle Downey Classic-Round 1

July 18, 2019

My player is Hyemin Kim.

Played steady. –1 on the card.


It seems that some players only want a pack-mule and not a caddie. One of my compadres worked twice this year for a certain player on two of the hilliest courses. They finished T5 and T4 making almost $20K. But when he needed a loop for this week, she decided to tote the bag herself. Shameful.

After my win, I have heard from that player only once. She wanted me to find her a looper for Decatur. Sad smile


How about some of those teams at the Dow Great Lakes Invitational? YIKES! A new event prior to a major gets hammered every time. Well, any event does but to do it to a new sponsor? More shame.


I received an email from a reader who bemoans the lack of play from Hanna Green after her win at the KPMG. He wonders if her mentor has advised skipping the little fish in lieu of catching another big one.


We snagged an excellent pairing the first two rounds. Jillian Hollis and Nuria Iturrioz who are number two and six respectively in the race for the card. We managed to edge them both by two shots.


”Upstate Jay” is in the house looping for Alexis Belton.


Food vouchers are provided for the volunteer caddies only but for some of us, it’s just a minor inconvenience. If you know what I mean.
