Going Golfing

Yeah, I’m ditching responsibility and going golfing today. Well, not exactly…I’m too much of a conscientious dork to fully neglect all of my duties. However, I am headed to the desert for a quick round. Yes, I know that it’s July and the desert is hot. I like it that way. I went golfing in the desert earlier this month and had a blast. Of course, if you aren’t a heat-lover, I don’t recommend trying to play 18 holes in 100+ degree (F) weather. It really is nothing to joke about and you can get into serious trouble quickly. Please take my word for it on that one.

I’ll be trying out my cool new golf shirt from Tattoo Golf. It’s in bright orange so no one will be losing sight of me on the course. Hopefully I can find my swing because it sure didn’t come with me to the practice range last night…argh! Talk about an exercise in patience.

Check out a five questions interview that I did with Tattoo Golf earlier this year here. As I’ve mentioned before, they’re one of those companies for those of us who don’t want to wear the traditional or stuffy attire but still want to look sharp. They’ve got new designs all the time so check them out.

Other golf happenings this weekend:

The Evian Masters is happening in France. Lorena Ochoa is ahead at this point at seven under. Annika Sorenstam is trailing the pack at one under.

The RBC Canadian Open has begun with a soggy course. Eric Axley, Mike Weir, and Anthony Kim are tied for first place going into today.

The Mastercard Senior Open Championship and Nationwide Children’s Invitational are also happening now.

Lucky you, you got to ditch everything and head out golfing on a Friday. How did it turn out? 100+ degree heat does not sound like fun to me. Did you jump in a pool afterward?

I had a blast as always - I love the desert! Nah, no pool time but I did have a couple of refreshing beverages at lunch.
