Four Winds Invitational 2017 – Round 2

June 11, 2017

My player is Alex Milan.

Not a good day. Off to Decatur this morning.


For the second day in a row, one of the caddies in our group lost her player’s sand wedge. It was easily found the first time but took a few holes yesterday. DOH!

All I kept losing the head covers on the hybrids.


Nanna Madsen, the medalist in the US Open Sectional Qualifier was DQ’d after the first round. Don’t know why.


This was Robby’s first week on tour and maybe his last. After caddying at Old Memorial for a few years and being released from a Class A baseball ballclub, he decided to see what pro golf was about. But as luck would have it (good, not bad), after his first event he was recalled by his former team.


Along with the Gideon Bible and local telephone book in my table drawer, is a pristine copy of this best seller.

Four Winds Invitational 2017 – Round 1

June 9, 2017

My player is Alex Milan.

Was hoping I would get an under par round birthday present but it was not to be. Shot +4.


The 15% chance of rain turned into a downpour accompanied by thunder just before we teed off. Wasn’t much of a delay and we played our round without another drop.


I’m driving back from the course and hit some real nasty bumps which activated my “check engine” light. So I opened my Torque Lite app which connects to an OBD II scanner I have installed. It showed a small emissions leak. Got back to the motel, opened the hood and found one of the hoses was disconnected. Plugged it in and cleared the codes. All is well once more.


Went deep at the New Balance store for my present then got a legitimate call from the IRS saying I owe them money. I filed an amended return and asked them to call since I’m on the road. Can’t believe they did.


Then there was this:

Four Winds Invitational 2017 – Thursday

June 8, 2017

My player is Alex Milan.

Played an E-9 this morning and my day was done. Alex is very low maintenance by her own admission.


Heard some players discussing the high hotel rates in French Lick. Host family housing is being discouraged in order to boost the local economy. Yeah, they’re all one-percenters out here. 🙂


Here are the scores from the Sectional Qualifier in Massachusetts. After the one day delay, a few players chose to WD and make other commitments.


Then there was this.

Picked up Alex Milan for the event.


Checking rooms for the Symetra event in French Lick. Yikes! Way too pricey. Probably won’t go. There was an option twenty minutes away though but all the reviews cited a roach infestation. Will have to think about it. 🙂


Tuesday’s sectional was rained out in Massachusetts and is being played today.


Then there was this:
