Stage 2 Qualifier 2017 – Wednesday

October 18, 2017

Picked up Angela Then through the caddie network yesterday but employment was based on my performance after nine holes this morning. I passed but I almost whiffed our tee time. Didn’t receive the text. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.


The greens on the Bobcat Course have been heavily top-dressed and puffs of sand rose when the ball landed yesterday but it was mostly gone today. Putted fairly well.


Caddie player match-ups so far: Upstate Jay is working for Doris Chen, former LPGA player Cindy Feng for Lily Muni He, The Nerd for Catherine O’Donnell, Danny Huber for EJ Seong, Jo Morley for Michele Thompson, Donna Wilkins for Jean Reynolds, Bully for Gabriella Then (Angela’s sister) and Philly Phil for Maria Torres.

Maria is from Puerto Rico. Here’s an interesting article regarding Maria’s travails after Hurricane Maria devastated the island and her career so far.


Happy 70th birthday (Tuesday) to Jarlath Hamrock aka “Upstate Jay”. After seven decades on the planet and a contender for the most interesting man in the world. Check out this article from 2001


I’m staying with Upstate and Phil in a condo behind the sixth tee on the Bobcat. Perfect location to watch tee shots and down a cold one.


Ran into my old boss Donna White. She’ll be following the progress of Nicole Sakamoto.


Over a foot of rain has fallen on the course in Taiwan in the last seven days washing out the pro-am.
