Rainy, "Green" Sunday!

Today was an interesting day. I was able to play Toqua Golf Club, a Tellico Village course I have always wanted to play but haven’t because it is private. Well, today I got to play it – in the rain. The weatherjerks got it wrong again and it was a steady rain when I arrived at the clubhouse to meet the good folks nice enough to sponsor my round – my buddy, Scott Saidak and his dad. After a hearty Southern breakfast with a bunch of old, retired Yankees, we decided to brave the weather. I was personally rewarded with a terrible front nine and soaked clothes. The sun came out on the back nine, as did my game . I still scored poorly, but there were some shining moments. On a 322-yard Par 4, I drove the green, yet managed to three-putt for par. However, and I am not just saying this, all three putts were tough on the challenging greens they have out there.

Suni spent this evening going to Knoxville to gather up all the goodies about which she has been reading in her Gorgeously Green book. Should be interesting. Waylon and I went down and visited my parents. All in all, a pretty good day. I am on the road a lot this week, so hopefully Suni keeps me posted with the blog entries.
