B.O.B. is in the house. Working for Amy Hung. 2013 was his last season on tour. Also, Pete Smith is back. Working for Annie Park.
Beth Bader is the first alternate. This field is not exactly the who’s who of the LPGA.
A call for a courtesy car this week went something like this.
I would like a courtesy car please.
Are you a player?
Yes, I’m the defending champion.
OK Catherine, we’ll reserve one for you.
Kris Tamulis is defending.
Smetri Mehra had to WD from the Monday qualifier. Her caddie went down from the heat at the turn and she had to carry her own bag (was allowed by the officials) until a replacement was found. As she lifted the bag, something in her rib cage area went awry and playing the remaining holes was not in the cards. Had to call it a day.
The conversation in the caddie tent is escalating to the inane. Reminds of the movie “Barber Shop”. Nothing is off limits.

The prediction of all day t-storms and two inches of rain never happened. Teed off on time.
They played ball in hand in anticipation. That kept the scores down considerably. Eventually the round was suspended around four.
A fourteen year old amateur made the cut. Karah Sanford shot –2 to finish even.
An ongoing weekly scam is to pass along the wrist band – that allows you in to player dining – to other family members but the security guard at the door is on to it. Making everyone put it on their wrist instead of just showing it. Can’t imagine what that costs the sponsors each week.
The Wi-Fi is screaming fast at the clubhouse. Equal to what we had at volunteer Dave’s in Rancho Mirage.
Stimp and fetch it? (please, no comments) Taking a reading on the ninth this morning. Running at 11.5.
Heard Smetri Mehra will give it a go in the Monday qualifier next week. Looking for a looper.
Caddies will be gettin’ down tomorrow evening. Happens every year I was told.
Then there was this:
