    I actually took my customer who is Verona there last year. It is very nice.

    When you mentioned it I was actually thinking SentryWorld which I have not played.

    Played Ives Grove with my old boss yesterday.

    I shot 42 (with a 5 on a par 3) and 38 for an 80. Woo Hoo! It is my second or third best round of my life. While I did hit some very good shots, I only had one really bad one. I also putted pretty well.

    Weather was great, company better. Shooting 80 on Nov. 5th was a special day.

    I shot a 78 on a par-72 course when I was 16 years old - and never broke 80 again.

    just kept getting a few shots worse almost per year, all the way to where it was a struggle to break 100 and now I have retired from the sport. congrats on the fine score - you almost shot your age!



    btw Gary Player is turning 85. I'll bet he hasn't failed to shoot below his age in at least 5 or 8 years.

    That was an awesome round for you at any age.

    Thanks for the congrats on my round it was really fun.

    I bet you are right on Player.

    A different buddy of mine and I have a 9:15 tee time at this same course. Nov.19th golf in Wisconsin will be awesome!

    Hope it'll be better down your way. Looking at 40s and raining up here, which would approximate my winter UK golfing experience from the late 1990s. "Awesome" is not the term I'd use.
    I'm just here for the baseball.

    62 parly cloudy 0 chance of rain. A bit windy at 19 mph but no big deal for Nov. golf. Hopefully more holes with the wind than agin it.

    AT&T Pebble Beach Pro Am today.

    Love to watch golf on that course. I have visited it but did not get to play. Maybe someday.

    The Masters at Augusta 2021 is this week.

    It is my favorite Tournament on my favorite golf course. I have been blessed to attend a practice day many years ago. I hope to return again someday.

    I would like to see Jordan Spieth win this year. He is 10-1. Last year's winner Dustin Johnson is 9-1.

    Ian Woosnam is the longest odds at 4000-1.

    I grabbed Spieth before last weekend's Texas Open win to take The Masters - at 14 to 1.


    also Cameron Smith and Scheffler each at 40 to 1, and Ancer at 66 to 1.
