First golfing tour of 2016 and we are heading out to Charlie Lake…..and I know, it’s not a big tour, but it’s a tour none-the-less. I have not seen hide nor hair of the LPGA scouts and it’s almost the end of July already for heavens sake, so I’ve decided that maybe I should go and look for them….and where would scouts mostly likely be? Well, obviously at the ladies only Golf Fore The Cure golfing tournament at the lake, so this is exactly where I will be headed. This will be my third time participaing in this wonderful tournament for a wonderful cause, supporting breast cancer. Our regular ladies team is a member short, as someone is holidaying in the sunny south, but not a problem as we were able to get a lovely and talented future DIL of Miss Wendy to fill in the spot.
I am all ready, fresh teal toenail polish to match the new clubs and I shall be wearing a lovely teal golfing shirt, and yes, it is all about the fashion, have you seen those ladies in the LPGA tour, all matchy matchy. I want to show the scouts that I am one of those ladies. Tonight is just a practice round and martini social so I have hired a chauffeur, ok not exactly hired as in actually paying him, but He Who Volunteered to Drive, will be doing the honors. How lucky are we. Tomorrow will be a pink day for the tournament, because that is the official colour, so it will be pink shirt, hat, golove, ladybug, tees and of course golfing balls – and if that doesn’t catch the scouts eye, I’m not sure what will.
“They” said it was going to be a nice weekend, and I guess technically it isn’t the weekend until tomorrow, but where the heck did my sunshiny morning get to. The wind has picked up and the clouds are building, and they’re not the nice white puffy, marshmallow clouds, these are more the grey, black angry looking clouds. I will keep my fingers crossed that the winds will blow the angry clouds away and blue sky will be all that is left.
I leave you with these words of wisdom: Always remember and never forget: As you walk down the fairway of life you must smell the roses, for you only get to play one round. ~ Mr. Hogan.
