So, I'm on the golf course today and somebody almost hit me with their golf ball, it landed about 10-12 feet away and I couldn't wait to see who the idiot was.
Oh crap, it was Lucas Glover-
OK, so now you know I wasn't at my local course playing golf. A couple of buddies and I were at the Travelers Championship today.
It's been raining all week in Connecticut and the grounds at TPC River Highlands were just lots and lots of mud! The fairways and greens looked great, but the areas where spectators could walk around were so muddy...yuck. Most of us were prepared and wore hiking boots and brought umbrellas and Mother Nature didn't disappoint...it poured on and off for about 2-3 hours and we got soaking wet.
Well, here are a couple of other things we got to see-
Here is Justin Thomas putting on the 3rd hole-
Here are Phil M., Marc L. and Jordan S. teeing off on the 5th (I think it was the 5th)-
And here are Tony F., Bubba W. and Brooks K. putting on the 3rd-
We saw someone hole-out on 15 from about 35-40 yards out (I don't remember who it was) and we almost saw a few holes-in-one on the 16th...that was exciting.
Overall, we had a great time. Sure, we got soaking wet, but what a small price to pay for getting to see the players some of us watch every weekend on TV up close.
Now let's have a little give-away-
I'll put everyone's name that responds to this thread into a hat and pick a name at random, the winner will receive a 2019 Pairings Guide from the Travelers Championship from today along with a TPC River Highlands ball-marker and Travelers Championship ball-marker hat clip set, seen here-
I also have two more Pairings Guides for second and third place prizes (if interested). I'll probably choose a winner on Monday after the tournament.
That's all folks.
Oh...and here we are at the tournament-
