Garden City Classic – Tuesday

September 15, 2015

Nothing on the line so far but I have a couple bites.

Update: Last week was a shutout and this week had two players and had to pick.

I’m will be looping for Liz Wendt. She just got in. I have her for 2nd stage so it was a good fit. Hated to leave the other player hanging and then I find out they’re rooming together this week!


Checked the course on a buggy. The only way to go when it’s hot and windy. 25-30 mph steady all day. Like being in a convection oven.


Left of the fifth fairway is where the buffalo roam. Spotted these two along with a calf.

NOT! They’re just silhouettes. The real buffalo have long been decimated by the evil white-eyes.


A  post on Facebook has Mike Carrick fired after the final round in Evian. Finished T-4 with a $151K  paycheck.

“This ain’t Dodge City. And you ain’t Bill Hickok”. – Matthew Quigley

In fact, Dodge City is just down the road. Have to go through there on the tedious trek to the next stop, El Dorado AR.


Upstate Jay and Tom are headed in different directions and will miss the Garden City Charity Classic here in America’s heartland, Garden City Kansas. “The Nerd”, originally scheduled to be here, yearned for the trappings of home and is bound for Florida.


I was told Garden City was devoid of interest but that’s not quite true. It is home to Garden City Community College and the Finney County Game Refuge. So it’s got that goin’ for ‘em. 🙂 Compared to last week, it’s a booming metropolis.


Staying at the “newly remodeled” Flamingo Motel at the beginning of the industrial part of town. Perfect caddie digs.


The Solheim Cup is this week. Does anyone care?


Speaking of cups, possession of the Potawatomi Cup was solidified with the win by Annie Park. She gets bragging rights and an extra $6K for the effort.


I was considering using Waze instead of Google Maps to navigate here but it was 45 minutes longer and not a direct route. I’ll stick with Google.


Then there was this:
