Wow…it’s been a busy few weeks in my world and one thing I’ve really missed is doing my weekly golf writing therapy. There’s a lot on my mind so I’d better get to it!
First of all...congratulations to Webb Simpson on his US Open win!! Honestly, I didn't see that one coming. He had been under the radar for most of the year but he played steady, solid golf with the fewest mistakes. Great guy, great champion.
Rumor has it that Sam Johnson went on vacation and didn’t take his golf clubs. This girl, on the other hand, has clocked quite a few miles on the Callaway travel bag, most recently on a trip to Nashville, TN, just 2 weeks ago. Back in 2010, I wrote about my first time to Nashville and the courses I played there. I was excited to be back, but not super excited to arrive to average temperatures of 95+ degrees – this Minnesota girl is not used to that kind of heat!

I just returned home from a 6-day trip to Tennessee/Kentucky. The main purpose of the trip was to meet friends and head to a concert, but since I was travelling, I figured I might as well try to fit in some golf, too!
Even though I didn't book any tee times before I left, I was able to golf 4 courses on three different days. Day one was a Thursday trip to The Hermitage. There are 2 18-hole courses - the President's Reserve and the General's Retreat. When I called that morning to see if I could play, I was able to get in with a two-some at 10:30 on the President's Reserve, the newer and more expensive of the 2 courses.
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!!
