Garden City Classic 2017 – Rounds 2 and 3

September 10, 2017

My player is Kendall Dye.

The wind got the best of us both days. 79-82

The Monday qualifier in the Bahamas was the toughest wind I ever caddied in. Today’s may rank in the top five.

Then there was this:

Donna Andrews to play in D-Day Memorial Golf Classic in Hot Springs

Ko admits form slide tough to take


Garden City Classic 2017 – Round 1

Posted –4. Good start.

Had the Mayor of Garden City scoring for us today. The honorable Melvin Dale.

Most holes facing south have a line on a forward tee. Used a few today. Good thing. Wind was howling and will continue the rest of the week.

Played the back nine yesterday. On the final hole, I shot the reflector at the front of the green with my Bushnell and it corresponded to what Kendall walked off. Only one problem. When we arrived at the green the reflector was resting against a fence post but I swear I saw it in the viewfinder by the green. You may hum the theme from The Twilight Zone now. 🙂

Drove to the Clutter house featured in the book “In Cold Blood” yesterday. It ends at a private drive with a no trespassing sign. I couldn’t see it. Too much corn.

Then there was this:

What’s gone wrong with Ko this season?

What are your golf superstitions? Mine was that while my player was putting, I didn’t want anyone standing between her and the hole in my line of vision. Broke that long ago.

Garden City Classic 2017 – Pro-Am

September 6, 2017

My player is Kendall Dye.

We were in the morning wave. Three amateurs and only took four hours. Sweet! Even earned some tippage.

It was one of the calmest days I’ve experienced here in the past three years. That will end when the tournament begins. 😦

Ever here of Holcomb Kansas? It’s eight miles west of here and back in 1959, was in the national spotlight. A family of four were brutally murdered and the crime boosted Truman Capote to national prominence. His book, “In Cold Blood”, first published in 1966, details the 1959 murders of the Herbert Clutter family in the small farming community of Holcomb.

One LPGA player didn’t realize there was more than one Portland in the US. Booked her flight from Portland Maine to Indy. Oops!

There was a shit storm of comments on the LPGA caddie message board concerning what the standard salary on tour should be. Some players (who don’t have a regular looper) are only offering $800 but some caddies think it should be in the $1300-$1500 range. Very interesting banter to say the least.

The China event, originally scheduled to be played in Beijing the first week of October, has been moved to Shanghai.

Walked the course early and played nine in the afternoon. Buffalo Dunes is in fantastic condition.

A cold front moved through last night. Highs in the mid nineties dropped to seventy-five.
