Hello Golf Fans!
It's another Major week in golf and I'm excited to talk about it, but I can't go any farther until I spend just a few lines praising the great win last week at the John Deere by Steve Stricker! I was attending a very important birthday party that Sunday (my nieces, Ce Ce & Sami are 3!) so I missed watching the final round, but I did get to see the final hole ...the amazing bunker shot and the putt/chip from the back of the green for the win. I loved that fist pump!! And I think it's important to note that this was his 3rd victory there in a row...WOW! And this wasn't a slouchy field either. I mean many of the big boys were already over the pond, but he definitely had some contenders. Way to go Steve!!

It's Here!! The 2010 PGA Tour season starts this week! I realize for some golf fans the PGA season starts with the Masters and ends with the PGA Championship, but after finding an exploded case of Diet Coke with Lime in the back of my car on Monday (yes, it was THAT cold in my garage!), I need the warm thoughts of golf and Hawaii to replace the dread of having to clean out my car...thank goodness there were no golf clubs back there!

I thought it might be a good time to check out how I did on my predictions for the 2009 PGA Tour season. Back on January 6, 2009 I made the following guesses in italics (see the 2009 Predictions Thread in the forums):
I think I can only improve from my predictions from last year - they were not good -
This is a true story. I'm awful at making predictions, but there is something fun in getting the chance to guess right every once in awhile!

My brain is jumbled with golf thoughts this week. I think I'm finally recovered from our great golf scramble last Friday. It was a terrific day! Well, except for the fact that we didn't win...again. My team battled hard and we ended up tied for first place (-15) but the scorecard playoff didn't go our way (which reminds me, next year, sudden death playoff!). But the sun was out, I got to spend the afternoon with some of my favorite golf pals (who can really hit the ball and Jason's putter was hot!), I heard lots of cheers and laughter, and we were able to help out our golf course and our high school sports teams. I call that a success!
When I found Tees2Greens website and forum I found a happy place. There were great people there and in 2009 they asked me if I wanted my own blog space. It was a dream come true!! The site is down now, but I was able to get all of my posts to be able to post here. I will always be grateful for all of the Tees2Greens folks!!
