After the return from Florida, I resumed play at Sleepy, in Alliance.

I made a trip to Chagrin Falls to play Tanglewood. The course was in pretty good shape and 17 affords quite a view. Yes, I put the ball on the road after a straight pull.

Male 11's and I played The Quarry in East Canton, yesterday. It was still a bit wet and some of the holes were cart path only. BUT, what a fun course to play!

Played the The Quarry about a month ago when it was all cart path only. Wonderful course but it was exhausting!

Finally put together a decent round in the league last night. 38 with bogeys on the last two holes.

Had a great time yesterday with 1’s and Mots. I think 1’s missed one fairway all day and I never saw Mots hit the t-ball that well all day long. But the best part was having two good friends play at the course I grew up on. The North course has a couple of cart path only holes, but it’s finally starting to dry out.

It's not recreational golf, but I headed out to Firestone for the Senior PGA Players Championship today. In my nearly 50 years of going to Firestone (I went even as a little kid) it was the worst attendance I've ever seen. I would guess it was about a fifth of the usual Sunday attendance for the regular pros. Beautiful course, accessible golfers and decent golf, but people apparently don't want to watch the minor leagues after seeing top notch gold for so many years.

One of the amusing parts of the day was John Daly. He cruised up by me in his cart and in the cup holders was a can of Coke and a Burger King cup.

Mickelson is only about 11 months away from 50. Average golf fans are sheep and might be more likely to show up to see a guy like him play at Firestone.

Yes, a good time with the boys! One of the best things, we were never held up, nor pushed. 4cards was a gracious host.

I hope it just just a first year thing. The area did get a World Golf event yanked at the whims of a sponsor. (albeit a big one in Fed Ex). Couple that with new events popping up in Detroit and Minnesota, it's a bit of a kick in the teeth.

But it is a Senior major with players average golf fans should be familiar with. The area has a few more years to show it's worthy of an event before they lose another one.

I don't think the Senior Tour event at Firestone will ever draw anything close to their initial attendance projections. There is just no demand to see yesterdays greats play golf with their diminishing skills. No offense to them, but it's just not the same as watching DJ, Rory, Jordan, etc...play the game.

I talked to someone in the know at Firestone and basically Bridgestone didn't want to match what Fed Ex was willing to pay to move the event. The Pros were not happy because they love Firestone South, no gimmicks and its a big burly course that rewards better play and has little to do with luck, plus the weather in Memphis in August is brutal.
