It’s upon us. It’s that time of the year where we pay tribute to all the dads. Happy Father’s Day – Dad I wish you were around today and that we could play a round of golf.
I’m reminded, that while I do miss my dad, that I’m grateful to have a daughter that calls me ‘dad.’
US Open is upon us as well and finishes on father’s day. This is definitely a US Open unlike any other. So many players in contention. Definitely anyone’s game. Fifty years ago today Jack Nicklaus met Arnold Palmer and had one of their legendary matches.

I appreciate everything that the USGA is doing to honor ‘The King’. Today they’re giving everyone in attendance a replica of his 1960 player’s badge.
Golf Yesterday at Sycuan
Pete and my buddy Gary took second. Two man scramble for the seniors and it’s really just such an advantage to have a low-handicap player to start with.
Doug and I got out for a fun round. His wife will nice enough to let him to get out for some golf. This week and next. Two rounds of golf in two weeks. Next Friday we’re at Aviara and got a great rate thanks to my coach, Bob Madsen.
Doug definitely had a good round going.
Myself – just a casual 76 where I was just out there having fun. Not bad for playing from the tips.
What do I take away from it? I didn’t get a single opportunity up and down. Four opportunities and didn’t get one up and down. Three putt on 16 was stupidity. So it’s another round that could have been much lower.
