Despite my best efforts (cheering, praying, rally caps, eating cheese) Steve Stricker did not get his first Major championship last Sunday. After Thursday's round, I almost felt like things had already slipped away when he carded a 2-over par 74, and the leader was at -6. But on Friday the weather came into play and a +1 (73) was almost 5 shots better than the scoring average of just over 78. 45 players shot 80 or worse that day (including Matt Kuchar- ouch!). At +3 he was still 7 shots back, but he made the cut and would be playing the weekend.

When I talked to my brother this morning he said that Tiger Woods has already practiced at Hazeltine this morning - flew in from OH last night and was on the tee at 6:45am today. The PGA Championship has officially started! Up until this morning I didn't think I would be heading down to the Championship, but I was lucky enough to get some tickets by entering a contest online (Thank you Ryan & Waggle Room!).
So now it looks like I'm going to head down for 2 days...YAY!!

My refrigerator died yesterday. I sort of knew it was coming, but the strange noises it had been making had stopped a few days ago so I figured it had just cured itself. Apparently you should not ignore the "code blue" noises your appliances make. After an hour or so of throwing away all of my formerly frozen treasures I realized that I have to shop for a new refrigerator - now.

I needed to go to a happy place this week. We have had three days of rain, which turned into ice, and the gloomy weather has put a damper on my golf enthusiasm. It's easy to get depressed this time of year...the transition into spring can be very slow and it seems we become prisoners of Mother Nature. If it were golf season I'd make my way to my local course. Even walking around without a club in my hand is enough for me - I'm happy there. But the snow is still hanging around and the soggy ground needs time to dry up and prepare for the upcoming season - it's not ready to be my happy place.
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!!
