I´m typing on a Spanish keyboard so if any strange spellings or key strokes happen here please forgive me.Mike and Kevin Foley & Me
Today was an absolute blast here in Bogota, Colombia.  I had the great privilege of playing golf with the current Tour money leader Kevin Foley.  He won the first event last week in Panama and thus is the current money leader!  The blast part comes from how far he hits it here at about 9000 feet above sea level.  I figured out how to club off of Kevin, he hits his irons exactly 28 yards farther than I do.

Below is my caddie Arthur, who did a great job. When you and your caddie do not speak the same language, the communication can still be great, as was the case today.

Caddie Arthur and the Birdie Man

The Pro-Am was a scramble for the amateurs.  I managed FOUR natural birdies and made an 80 foot putt!  My new Colombian knick name is birdie man.

I´ll be uploading photos throughout the week.  Check out the Colombia Championship image gallery.
