Back on May 20th, Ray and I were lucky enough to have free tickets (including FREE parking) for the Byron Nelson golf tournament at the Four Seasons Resort in Irving, Texas. Sounds swanky, I know.
I'm not keen on golf on TV - boring! But I kept an open mind about seeing it live, and I came away duly impressed. Plus I saw Sergio Garcia in his bright red pants. He's quite popular and is a fun player to watch - very enthusiastic. Alas, he fell apart on Sunday and did not come close to winning.
Aussie, Jason Day caught my eye. Very spiffy and the man could whack that ball hard. Hearing it live, watching it zing far, and joining in the oohs and aahs of the crowd was very amusing. Jason ended up in second place on Sunday.
More Jason plotting strategy
Placing the ball and ready to swing. Fore!!
So, golf live gave me a new perspective and appreciation for the athletes. Always good to try new things. (Plus we walked over 10,000 steps - not too shabby).
