Donald Ross Classic-Round 3

July 14, 2019

My player is Hyemin Kim.

Another +1 has us T23.

We were paired with “The Nerd” and he rivaled Marcus in his proficiency. Just kidding Rick.Smile It was good to have plenty of help for once.

The Donald Ross Course was built over 100 years ago and the amount of slope on the greens is considerable. So much so, the pin barely changed position on seven of the greens.

It’s on to Rochester for the Daniel Downey Classic. I be with Hyemin once more.

Donald Ross Classic-Round 2

July 12, 2019

My player is Hyemin Kim.

Didn’t get it done. Shot +1.

Marcus, the other caddie in our group, is employed in the area caddie program and wore golf shoes yesterday. He had the tennies on today. Poor soul. He’s been lost for two days. Always in someone’s way.

Yesterday, we teed off two minutes early because the starter was using his watch and not the official clock that was directly behind him. Hyemin noticed the error and called in the official. The last player in our group had to wait an extra minute to let it fly.

Think I forgot my deodorant today. Got pretty ripe by the end.Smile

Donald Ross Classic 2019–Round 1

My player is Hyemin Kim.

We were first off and the leader in the clubhouse when we finished. Shot –4.

“Speedway” is looping for Sydney Cavin and “The Nerd” is on Alice Chen’s bag.

The historic West Baden Springs Hotel has a room dedicated as the Legends Tour Hall of Fame and is full of memorabilia. Included is Dee Darden’s book “Inside The Ropes” and I just happen to be in it. Of course, I left the page open to my picture. Smile


Donald Ross Classic 2019–Tuesday

July 9, 2019

My player is Hyemin Kim.

The back nine was all that was necessary. I showed two hours before our planned meeting and we went right out. Good thing. It was a scorcher.

Played the front yesterday and let all play through to facilitate more putting and chipping opportunities.

My plan was to skip this track but to paraphrase Don Corleone, “She made me an offer I couldn’t refuse”.

Hyemin said the greens are much more consistent this time around than the last two.

Look who I spotted. Speedway is in the house.
