Symetra Tour Championship 2016 – Round 1 and 2

October 15, 2016

My player is Madeleine Sheils.

+2 for our opening round. Skunked on birds. +2 second round. Missed by one. Had to get a couple cold ones afterward.


Last week I was in the parking lot at Alaqua talking to Jeff Decoen and the first person we see pull in was Charlotta Sorenstam. This week I was with him again and the first person we see was Annika.


Walked around downtown Deland this morning. One of the best small towns in the country.

You never know whom you may run into during Biketoberfest.

After reading this facetious sale sign outside a collectibles store, a lady came in and asked “Where is the 569 rack?” DOH!

Symetra Tour Championship 2016 – Tuesday

October 11, 2016

My player is Madeleine Sheils.

Played the front and called it a day.


No play was allowed till after 12 and only off the first tee. Take a number ladies.

Annika was in the house. Made some kind of presentation and took photos with Madelene Sagstrom.

My first take of my Airbnb booking in Deland thought I made a double bogey. The advertised “studio” is just a 12×15 bedroom with a fridge but it does have some pluses. Private entrance, very comphy bed, remote controlled AC and good shower. Doesn’t have a TV but I brought my own from Tampa and the OTA antenna gets plenty of channels.

There is something odd though. The AT&T internet service refuses to connect to The Drudge Report website. Keeps getting a “404 – not found” error. Must be a liberal conspiracy.


Went over and checked Louie’s hose. A tree came down buck it was off his property. His house is behind the big tree.

Symetra Tour Championship – Tuesday

October 13, 2015

Nothing lined up for this week. The field is only 108 so prospects are dim.


I took honors in our house pool in last week’s final round with three under and also won the total score. Got a wad of singles burning a hole in my pocket so I treated myself to breakfast at Hamptons Restaurant. The $6.75 special was a pile of eats with coffee included.


After the round, I had a three-way with Rachael’s dad and Rachael interpreting. He made me a long term offer I would have to think hard about. I must have made an impression. 🙂


Louie made chili yesterday and it was the best I ever et. He used venison instead of hamburger which really put it over the top. Key lime pie from Publix was the exclamation point to a memorable meal.


Heard a player on the range compare this week to the movie series “The Hunger Games”. All that’s missing would be the report of the cannon and the picture in the sky of the player eliminated.
