Just got off the phone.  The call was from St. Andrews SCOTLAND.  My best friend, who just celebrated his birthday a few days ago, was calling.

He was having a pint with my pal Boynie!  Boynie is a friend I’ve met online through The Golf Space.  He’s a caddy at St. Andrews.  Boynie and my friend will be doing 36 holes on The Old Course TOMORROW!  Talk about cool!  I can’t wait to hear about it and to see the pictures.

My buddy put Boynie on the phone and he sounded just like I’d hoped and dreamed.  In other words, his accent was so great I could only understand about half of what he said!  I loved it!

UPDATE 6:35ET: I’m on the phone RIGHT NOW with Alan.  He’s WALKING THE 1ST FAIRWAY.

Alan: “I’m touching the 1st tee with my hand.”
Me: “Take a picture.”
Alan: “Every great the game has seen in its history has stood at this spot.”
Me: “Ooooohhhh.”

One response to “My best friend checks in from St. Andrews Scotland!”

  1. Alan says:

    And now I’m checking in in person! Grabbing some St. Andrews Indian food before hitting the rack. Boynie has me staying in a quaint room upstairs of a local pub within easy walking distance of the first tee at The Old. More details to follow!
