Guess who was the mystery guest of Bill Hughes at the Clubhouse at TPC Sawgrass?

Life has been a world wind since leaving my condo and heading to TPC Sawgrass Friday afternoon for a Farewell gathering. Interview with Calvin Peete was awesome. He hit his first hickory club on the back tee. Had some fun with Bill Hughes the GM, Kaeerir Lecker won the drawing and was thrilled to have a set of hickory clubs!

Saturday morning I drove around the fountain at the Clubhouse for good luck. My starting mileage was 127.149 and I left at 9 am. I could not have had a better host or visit to Atlanta. My host was 1972 Olympian Dennis Berkholtz and we had a wonderful time together visiting the Olympic Torch, Bobby Jones’ gravesite, East Lake Golf Park, Centenniel Park and playing Atlanta Athletic Club. I am not totally immersed in the spirit of Bobby Jones and the 1996 Summer Olympics.

I left the Clubhouse at TPC Sawgrass on Saturday morning, October 12th at 9 am."Torch," my M30 baby had 127,149 miles on her and I am hoping to see her in Rio with me with 140,000 plus in 3 months!

Dennis is the first Olympian that I have known personally and I know it has changed my life already. I am beginning to think this “Journey to Olympic Golf” is a life changer for me. And maybe you too. Come join me! But first click this First Tee link and make a little donation. Like meeting Jim, visiting the First Tee of North Florida, playing the Brentwood Course with a couple of kids really got this whole golf ball rolling and it looks like it is going to roll right into the cup for an ace!

ps- I too, like David Toms laid up on No. 18 and made a 15 footer to finish off a great round and great experience. Unlike David Toms, I was bunkered twice before doing so and in the water once. Mine was for a double bogey, his a par but there were three strokes between us as it was a par-5 for me! But making that putt felt as great!

ps- one thing I do know about Atlanta is that the Blue Ridge Grill in Buckhead is a great place to meet people!
