I’ve finished uploading my photos from the Robert Trent Jones Sr. designed, and Robert Trent Jones Jr. restored Dorado Beach Resort’s East Course. There are about 70 images of the course, many with my new killer Nikon mega-wide lens.

Dorado Beach Day Two = Fantastic

The humidity here in Puerto Rico is about 4,000,000%. I don’t normally sweat much, but today was so bad my Sumi-G belt is hanging out to dry. There’s a whole other dimension to playing golf in high humidity which I’m not exposed to much, living in a mountain desert. It took a while to adjust. I tried to keep myself hydrated, but I must have failed or just the brightness all day got me. My right eyeball feels like Joe Pesci has it in a vice and is slowly tightening it more and more.

I’d love to post a bunch about today’s round on the East Course here at Dorado Beach, and also the quick nine on the front of the West Course. Unfortunately my body is telling me to shut down. However, I have loaded a TON of photos to the East and West Course Dorado Beach HOG Galleries so check ’em out.

I’m going to try to hit the East course for a few holes in the morning tomorrow before my flight home. Then on the plane I’ll do some commentary on the rounds today, the place, the people etc. Hope to post Sunday if possible.

Cypress Classics Golf Box

Cypress Classics Image Box - Click for larger image

I received a sample Large Box from Cypress Classics a few days ago. Seldom have I gotten this stoked and had such a great first impression of a product like I did with this one.

About Cypress Classics

Cypress Classics makes some very nice tee prizes, award plaques, keepsake boxes, awards, logo ball displays, throws and picture frames. The products are very classy looking and well made.  I particularly like the wood finish and the lamination.

Large Box

My Large Box is really neat.  It has a picture of Lake Nona on the top.  The image is atop a ceramic tile inlay in the lid as well.  Very nice.  Cypress can put any image you desire on the top of the box.

The fine wood of the box is a red colored maple hardwood and the lid’s hinges are made of brass.  Very elegant.

The inside of the box is lined with a forest green fabric which is great for putting fine items inside.  The large perfectly fits four sleeves of golf balls.

Conclusion

Hard to write a 2000 word review on a golf keepsake box.  This review will top out at about 250, but I could sum it up in five words.  Cypress Classics products are cool.

I have my keepsake box on my dresser and put small valuables, pocket cameras, football tickets and my wallet in there.  Love it.

2011 U.S. Open - Congressional43 minutes ago Tiger Woods posted that he will not be competing in the U.S. Open next week at Congressional:

“Not playing in US Open. Very disappointed. Short-term frustration for long-term gain.” ~Tiger Woods

And I was just about to predict that he wouldn’t win the Open this year… Guess I was right.
