Stevenson Leads the way!
Happy FAT TUESDAY!
Yep that’s right it’s Mardi Gras time once again and a time for celebration. It’s a time to try and forget all your worries and enjoy life while being safe. There is some great history behind this tradition. Here’s a link for you if you’re interested.
Mardi Gras History
I’m reminded about this great celebration of life by a photo sent to me by Jason Ricks who took this photo of his son Chase Ricks and playing competitor Bryson Hughes walking down the cart path during play of “THE BATTLE AT NORTH HAMPTON this past Sunday.
Winter Olympics: As the medal pile up and the freezing temperatures continue at the Olympic Village, it was another great day on the course here in Florida with the temperatures in the low 80’s, a little cloudy and breezy but great golfing weather none-the-less. It was good to see the Olympic committee also cancels or postpones events for player safety, as we recently had to. Always better to be safe than sorry!
This week 72 player’s tee’d it up on one of the toughest and most demanding golf courses we play. The course itself is one of the best tests of golf around. Play this course well and I will guarantee you that you are a serious competitor in the game of golf.
The course was in wonderful condition with greens on the slow side, but as I tell everyone this is an element of the game and you have to adjust, adapt and overcome if you want to win. All good players will. It’s no different than wind, rain, wet conditions, hot or cold. It’s a condition you must adapt to. The sooner one learns this the better you will be.
Many thanks to the PGA Professional Blaze Grinn and his professional staff for their fine service and support of our TOUR and junior in golf. It’s Pros like Blaze who grow the game. Send him a note of thanks and thanks for doing so.
