But, on the positive side, the weather is great and I love the courses. The only bad part about the views is that they won’t let me take any photos. I can already feel myself getting into better shape with all of the walking, and a lot of “big name” golf writers are here: Rex Hoggard, Jeff Rude, and Ron Sirak to name a few. It was weird to look at one of the flat-screen television sets yesterday and see Tim Rosaforte doing a report for the Orlando studio, and then walk outside the hole in the media tent and watch him do it live.
Surprisingly, I have only walked the South course once. I guess I’m saving it for the last two days—the fewer times I have to walk a 7,600+ yard golf course the better.
I’m staying with a friend of a friend, and it sure beats staying in my car or the tent. I’m still trying to work on where I’m staying in LA for Riviera next week, and so far I’m having no luck. I looked at every “State park” around there, and the only one that was open is only open Friday’s and Saturday’s, they have no showers, and it’s a mile hike into the woods before you can set up a tent. So we’ll see. Maybe I’ll sleep in the parking garage at LAX. That should be interesting. I could be that bum that never leaves the airport. Or, perhaps I will leave, because I’ll be getting arrested.
But take care all. It’s been a fun week so far, and I haven’t even experienced Saturday and Sunday at Torrey Pines yet.
