First World Problems: Having to Cash In Pro Shop Winnings

It’s that time of year. The courses in northern Utah are slowly winding down. Snow will be flying soon. Many of the courses have a deadline for players to cash in their tournament winnings. “Use it or lose it.” Because of some good results for me in the gross match play, and the city amateur, I had some money that had to be spent by today. Here’s the take from Bonneville:
Winnings
Since I have one of the world’s longest running and most popular golf blogs, the last thing I need to do is buy myself is golf stuff. I seriously trip over training aids in the dark at 3 a.m. on the way to the bathroom. So the pro Steve at Bonneville for the second year in a row has let me order street shoes from Ecco, since they’re an Ecco dealer.

Throw in a couple of Utah Utes items, one for the bride, and good to go.

I know. I know. It’s rough.

My long distance golf buddy John Duval from IntoTheGrain.com gave me some custom logo Bridgestone B330’s earlier this year.  I love it when golf buddies are in town traveling and have to “leave” me great golf balls because they don’t want to pay the airline’s excessive overweight baggage fees.  Thank you.  Come again.

At the rate I’m using these balls they’re going to last me until 2019 though.  This ball simply refuses to die, and I some how can’t find a way to lose it.

Nice to share a birthday with one of the greatest ever, but Annika didn’t win TWO club championships at River Oaks in Sandy, Utah!

St Andrews New Course Yard Sale Bunker

St Andrews Old Course has many famous bunkers.  There’s Shell Bunker, Hell Bunker… and of course the most famous bunker in all of golf, the Road Hole Bunker.  But on the St Andrews NEW Course (1895), did you know about the Yard Sale Bunker?

While playing on the New Course a few weeks ago a gust of wind (known as a “wee breeze” in Scotland) blew my lad Todd’s trolley (known as a push cart in the USA) into a bunker. I caught it before the wheel stopped spinning.

Video highlight from the back nine at Royal Aberdeen Golf Club in northeastern Scotland.  No, the beauty swing you see isn’t mine.  It’s my lad Shanego.  Nice little windmill serves as a backdrop.
