Decatur-Forsyth Classic 2017 – Round 2

June 18, 2017

My player is Jiayi Zhou.

Eighteen straight pars and missed the cut by one. Jiayi hit it so well it could have been sixty-five easy.

Oh well, on to Harris but the weather forecast looks awful for next week. Will be spending a lot of time in the casino.

A question for Holly Sonders. Are they real and are they spectacular? Jerry Seinfeld would like to know.

Then there was this:

My player is Jiayi Zhou.

Even par for today. Played easy.

The other caddie in the group asked if Jiayi and me were related. You be the judge.

Lexi Thompson is not the only player I know of who had to give skydiving a try. Jiayi took the plunge last year in San Diego from 4,000 feet.

Then there was this:

Decatur-Forsyth Classic 2017 – Practice

June 15, 2017

My player is Jiayi Zhou.

Played the back nine this morning then a touch of practice. Afterward I watched a bit of the Open in the clubhouse with my friend Miller. He’s less filling.

Touched them all on Tuesday. Heat index of 105° made it a long day. Yesterday’s practice was called off (at least with me anyway) so stimulation conversation at the course was the order of the day.

Former LPGA Official Jim Haley (aka Comet) is back on tour helping out officiating. Besides this week, he’ll be in Harris MI, Rochester and Battle Creek. Portland and Indy are also on his schedule on the LPGA.

In my quest to find the best chicken with garlic sauce in the US, I tried Asia House just across the street from my motel. It was OK but didn’t make the grade. Too sweet for my taste.

Then there was this:

Decatur-Forsyth Classic 2017 – Monday

June 12, 2017

My player is Jiayi Zhou.

There’s an afternoon pro-am but that’s about it. Taking it easy.

Congrats to Kendall Dye with Billy Prentice on the bag for their stellar performance in the final round last week. That’s the way you play on Sunday folks.

Kudos to the American farmer. The realization of the sacrifices endured by farming families hits home when driving through the miles and miles of farm land as I did on my trip to Decatur. The isolation alone would try my sanity, what’s left of it.

I’ve been having trouble using Google Maps lately. The instructions on when to turn was lagging about a half mile behind which forced me to constantly glance at the map. Through an internet search, it was suggested I reset my GPS satellite locations using a tool in the GPS Status & Toolbox app. Seemed to do the trick. Instructions are now on the money.

It was one day late but I had a birthday brew with Tom Borwick at Wings ECT. last week. Tom treated and of course I ordered the large mug. 🙂
