I got some telephone updates yesterday from my best bud Al who was playing with my caddy connection Boynie, The Old Course at St. Andrews. They had a spectacular time. In the morning my bud played and Boynie caddied. In the afternoon Boynie hung up the caddy bib and threw on his clubs to play with my pal Al.
Al called me from the road hole. I actually felt bad because he was using a cell phone on the course but I was happy to hear from him. I felt like I was there. Connected to the course just a little. All my pal could say over and over was “you’ve got to come out here.”
I’ll be getting some surely great photos soon, which I’ll obviously post here.
2nd day in a row of birthday wishes to a special lady. Yesterday’s special lady was the USA. Today’s special lady is my lady! Big 40 for her. Unfortunately for me she’s in NYC, 2000 miles away but she’ll be back tomorrow and the big 40 bash is coming up soon!
Happy Birthday to the USA!
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.”
Last week my men’s league had “ladies day” which is where all the men play from the ladies or red tees.
Lowest score other than mine was a 70. My score? 65! I found my true calling in golf and crushed the field by five shots! And I even bogeyed a par five. I had two eagles in a row and had a five footer for a 3rd but lipped out…
I’m proud to be ladies’ day champ. Look out Michelle Wie…
