Wow, I'm looking forward to the State Championship that starts this weekend (June 14th). As usual, it'll be hot, but it's worth the "torture". It's always an exciting time to arrive and find out who your first opponent will be....sometimes one of your very best friends.
Last year it was amazingly hot, or maybe it was because I was sick. I had shingles in my throat. This year is better: I only have two spider bites on my feet. I'm wondering if this is a "sign". In May next year, I'll not only be anticipating the tournament, but I'll be wondering what dramatic "ailment" I'll have in the weeks just prior to championship tee-off.
I'll be out-of-pocket from June 13 thru 18, but as soon as I return, I'll have results and pictures to share with you. For all our SWGA members who are participating, please check with me if you get a chance so we can be sure to get a group picture for this site.
Sure hope that if you aren't going this year, you'll start thinking about next year already. In the meantime, good golfing!!
