Steve, on the far right, with fellow golf fanatics Tom, Jim, and Charlie.
You all know my knowledge of golf is limited. My mom and dad golfed, my son and husband golf and, of course, your Chief Tormentor, Steve, golfs. A lot! So why canít I get the facts right?!
I previously regaled you all with the story of Steveís trip to the Augusta National Golf Club to golf with one of my favorite Stave puzzlers, Jim G., from Birmingham, Alabama. It all came about with a casual chat I had with Mr. G. while he was ordering a puzzle. ìIf Steve ever wants to play Augusta National, let me know.î Little did I know what an impact those words would have on Steve.
Did You Catch Me?
Steve left for Augusta on Thursday, May 13th, and returned Saturday evening. When my phone rang Sunday morning and I heard who was on the other end of the line I knew I was in for a great story. It was everything Steve had hoped it would be and so much more.
On Monday morning Steve showed everyone the photos he had taken and shared his adventure with the whole gang. Needless to say, we have all heard the stories several times now. So donít you think I could get my facts straight?! Magnolia Drive, Magnolia Lane. A water trap, a water hole. 210 feet, 210 yards. Whatís the big deal?! Ok, Ok, Iíll give you the feet vs. yards thing but the rest? Minor details to a girl like me but HUGE for all you golfers out there in the world.
Iím taking this opportunity to admit my mistakes and make things right. As much as I like to tease Steve and embellish the story a bit I do appreciate the thrill and honor it was for him. The generosity of Mr. G. is over the top and he presented Steve with the opportunity of a lifetime. But whatís even better is it got a ton of brownie points for me!
Enjoy the pictures and please, if you catch me in any mistakes, donít tell Steve!
I guess I can’t always be right. (Don’t tell my husband!)
