That being said, Hogan’s Alley was worth the struggle with parking every morning. Beautiful bunkers, great undulations on the greens, and everyone and their mother this past week said they’ve never seen the course in better condition. So, of course it had to rain.

Here are some of the highlights:

2. Corey Pavin’s Assistant Captain announcement and red-velvet cupcakes
3. The Soap Opera that ensued with the catering people
4. Joining Tim Clark’s posse on the last day
