Teaser Post...Practice Rd. #2
Ok, so everyone who enjoys golf must have seen or heard of the movie Tin Cup right? The scene where Cheech Marin and Kevin Costner are at the practice range before playing in the big tournament with all the big names already hitting balls, remember? That's exactly the first thing that hit me squeezing between Bob Tway and Ruiji Imada (sp.) sorry but his bag was tilted the wrong way and he didn't appear to speak english that well so I couldn't ask him to spin it around :). Back up a few minutes and breakfast was with all the boys and Sheri...Justin Leaonard, Scott Verplank (who I shoved out of the way to toast my english muffin for Pete's sake, Steve Stricker who ate with Rod Pampling and so on. No locker room drama just a Davis Love III sighting and David Toms in the boys room but I digress...The spectators were in full force on Tuesday morning as Kenny Perry and I strode up the hill with autograph seekers lining both sides. Fortunately he took most of the rush (go figure!?) and got sloppy seconds. Oh yea and Phil was lurking...stay tuned gotta go eat with the board member from Oakland Hills. I'll be back later.
