Greetings from my hotel which just happens to have a free wireless internet connection! It’s day 2 of my trip and day one of 6 straight days of golf. If I’m this tired now, I have no idea how I’m going to survive the next few days. I am beat. At least all my clothes and car smell good since my brand new bottle of Hummer cologne completely leaked all over all them during the drive last night. My socks never smelled so good.
Last night I rolled into St. George Utah and stayed with a golf buddy who brought his travel trailer. I didn’t get any food for dinner but fortunately my pal had some cheese curds and donuts…dinner of champions.
We camped in Snow Canyon which is a spectacular little canyon near an awesome golf course called Entrada. We woke up before sunrise (you do that when you’re “camping”). The moon was just coming up over the red rock plateau above our camp site (see pic).
The round today had some crazy happenings. On the first hole alone we had a broken club, a chip in birdie and a snowman. Unfortunately, the snowman was mine. The round took FOREVER. 6 hours to be exact. The course was packed for the nice weather and there where hackers everywhere. 6 hours is terrible.
We played many individual bets, team bets, skins and a Chicago. Thanks to my buddy with the travel trailer chipping in for eagle on the last hole, we won many of our two man bets and most importantly the Chicago. All the players chipped in $10 to a pot so we call got some cashola back. I also won a skin with a par on a difficult par 4. All in all I must have won about $60-70 in bets.
I won some bets but played very badly. I hope to play better tomorrow… I’ll post an update tomorrow evening.
Oh, and my fantasy team this week stinks! Both my A players missed the cut as well as several of my B and C players. I have hardly any players to play…
