World Am Update
I go to the Pro Shop and had them call the course from the day before to see if they found my camera. Yes they did, and they gave it to one of the 47 other ladies in my flight to give to me. Great. I'm relieved, so now I go down to get my putter so I can hit the putting green since I've now run out of time to trek down to the driving range.
I get to the cart where my bag is attached. There is NO PUTTER. Panic. I tracked down the dude that had taken my clubs and told him my putter was missing. He told me that it had fallen off the bag so he just put it INSIDE my bag. However, my putter wasn't IN my bag. Oops!
He must have put it in the wrong bag! I spent the entire time going cart to cart digging in everyone's bag looking for my putter, even after they had made announcements asking people to look in their bags. Ten minutes before tee time, I still had no putter so I went and borrowed one from the Pro Shop. When I arrived back at my cart, someone came running with my putter and the crowd of ladies erupted in applause! Success! So I get to start my round with no driving range practice and not a clue about the roll of the greens. What the heck! Let's just enjoy.
But what about my camera? I was in a threesome that day, and the golf gods were with me, because one of the ladies in my threesome was the lady they gave my camera to. What's the chances? The other lady in that threesome was a lovely lady from Guademala. She had no GPS or range finder, so I became her personal caddy. She ended up winning low net for the day. I was proud for her.
If any of you want to combine golf with a family vacation, Myrtle Beach is a great place to do it during the World Am. There is all kinds of activities for the whole family and shopping like you've never seen before. The tournament is held every year the week before Labor Day, so keep it in mind for next year.
