TOUR JOURNAL Vol. 2 - Florida '05
Thanks to everyone who made the first trip of '05 such a success. The only thing better than great golf is great friends and great golf together and this trip was surely "meet new friends but keep the old, one is silver and the other gold.
PGA Golf Club - Dye and South Courses. Congratulations to Steve and Terry from NYC who are expecting. Plucky Terry played terrific while a couple months preggers with "the player to be named later" and is a Trinity College grad (my alma mater). Go fight win Trin! Also thanks to Jake, Bud and all the staff at The PGA club. I played both the South and the Dye and conditions were terrific and the pace of play was great.
Deering Bay - Miami (private) Best regards to Tico and Diego and the Alligator (see picture above). You have a wonderful club there. Anyone lucky enough to get the chance to play this playground of the stars, do it...just club down off the tee as its target golf all day long. Spandex tight, water on all sides.
Southern Dunes - Haines City - I could not have had nicer playing partners. Not only were Ron and Diane form Illinois just the nicest couple you'd ever want to meet, but Diane cardred three birdies in a row on her way to a BLISTERING 39 on the front. Not to be outdone, George from Virginia carded an incredible eagle 3 when he holed out a wedge from 70 yds out from deep in the hip high rough and mounds way right of the fairway on #15. I also had the best day of the tour - a solid 84. When in town, stop by and shake head pro Shane trice's hand. Then enjoy a wonderful day of golf at a reasonable price.
Finally, thanks to Scott Wyckoff, Stan Cooke, Garth, Jesse, Tom and all the WW crew and to new WITPers Lester, Jim and Greg from Indiana. That was fun boys.
Tour announcements will follow soon, but I hope to catch up with you Illiniosers and Indianans on a midwest swing this fall, but for now, its six weeks of hitting into a net at Chelsea Piers. See everyone in cyberspace.
