Valley Forge Invitational-Round 1

May 24, 2018

My player is Hyemin Kim.

Doubled the last to shoot +4. Need to get them all back tomorrow.

Everyone tees off one number one this week. No split tees. The tenth is too far away. Just like the US Open used to be. Smile

Only one pro-am this week and it was yesterday morning. The final group was 2:40 and play was allowed after but if you wished to play the back nine, you had to make the turn by 5:00. The math does not let many groups continue on in fact, Samantha Richdale, Kristy McPherson and Hyemin were the first to line up and the only ones to play the back nine.We made the turn with a minute to spare. Plenty of practice and great fun.

I’m staying at the America’s Best Worst Value Inn in Pottstown. For some reason, motel rooms in this area are outrageous. This is the least expensive and and most ABVI’s, it’s a bit of a dump. I’m ground floor so the carpet is filthy, the bathtub drain doesn’t, and I saw something scurry across the floor the other night. Way too big for a roach.

The Monday qualifier at the Volvik Championship was a real cluster f*** I heard. It was held off-site, there were no yardage books, it pissed down rain and had to ne completed on Tuesday and no matter how many holes you had remaining, a caddie was mandatory. Many of the caddies who work the Monday could not continue and had to loop for their regular player so another body had to be found. But the coup de grâce was the pin sheet. The nines were reversed!

If a qualifier is off-site, why not let the players use a laser?


Valley Forge Invitational – Monday

May 22, 2018

My player is Hyemin Kim.

Touched them all yesterday but today’s planned afternoon nine today was washed out.


Walked eight holes on Sunday then ran into amateur play. Luckily, eight green is as close to the clubhouse as one could get. The ninth does not come back to the barn.


The first eight holes are a real snooze-fest but then you’re hit with a triple espresso that wakes you right up. The rest of the course is totally different with plenty of character. The eleventh will give players fits. The hazard on the right will catch plenty of tee balls and it’s easy to go through the fairway into the trees or get stuck on a mound in deep rough. I’m sure a Rules Official will be stationed there throughout.


Walked some holes with a local caddie who’s looping for Shasta Everhart. He helped me quite a bit. Gave me some inside info like the tenth hole won’t be played from the tips because it’s six-hundred effing yards! Thanks pal. He did have a laser but not a yardage book.


Upstate Jay is here looking for a bag.


This could be one of the best backdrops in golf. Smile

Larry and Limerick Nuclear Power Plant small

Limerick Nuclear Generating Station radiates with picturesque photo opportunities. Wonder if they’re going to pass out Potassium Iodide pills on the first tee?


Do you have a bunch of dull golf pencils you just can’t sharpen correctly? Instead of trashing the little buggers, buy the Kutsuwa STAD Angle Adjustable Pencil Sharpener for cheap from Amazon and use the number one setting. Works like a charm.


Then there was this:
