Lucky us. Tom and I were given ground passes to the PGA (Professional Golf Association) Championship at Valhalla today. This was only a practice round and it was packed with people, especially when Tiger Woods showed up for his round at 2:00 p.m., after I had left but while Tom was still there. I did see Rory McIlroy who is fit and has the most comfortable and easy swing and is in total command of his game from what I saw. It was so doggone hot and humid on the course that I had to leave around 12:30 and make my way back to the bus shuttle. I took the shuttle to Churchill Downs to hopefully catch a cab back to the hotel. It took me 55 minutes to wait for the cab and then a 20 minute ride. I was cooked and done.
While outside the hotel this morning waiting for our ride to the golf course, Sir Nick Faldo was waiting for his car. Tom took a picture of us together . . . as you can see, he's quite tall. For those of you who don't know who he is, Sir Nick Faldo is a British golfer who has won many championships and now announces for CBS.
We're flying home tomorrow morning, dark and early. We have to depart the hotel at 5:30 a.m. to catch a flight to Atlanta before heading to Seattle. As you can tell, these were not travel arrangements I made! See you on the other coast . . . if not tomorrow, on Friday!
Don't forget . . . this Friday is Journal Club at Art 'n Soul between 4 and 6 p.m.
