I played in the Sybase Classic last week, and I have to say that it was my favorite tournament so far on tour. Being so close to New York City and New Haven, CT, where Yale is located, made me feel right at home. A couple of my friends from college and my uncle's family even came out to watch me play. Last week also made me realize that the beauty of having friends that have no golf knowledge whatsoever is that I get to hear all the hilarious golf questions and comments they come up with. Here are some of the best ones so far:
"*gasp* Do you ever step on those tacks with your bare feet?" - Jess after seeing some tees lying around the floor of my apartment.
"No, we should wait here to tell Jeehae which ball is hers!" - Brian on day one of Sybase after I had hit a drive that ended up right next to my playing partner's.
"We should invest in some Segways (the personal transporters) for next time we come watch you play. Are they allowed?" - Dan and Brian after round one of Sybase… Are they allowed for spectators??
"I wanted to tell you that you have awesome calves, but it was so quiet out there and I didn't know if I was allowed to talk at all." - Brian after round one of Sybase.
"Can I call your caddy's cell to see which hole you're on tomorrow so I can get there just when you're on 9? I don‘t want to bother you during your tournament" - Diana on the night before round two of Sybase.
I should have recorded all of our conversations, because there were so many more of them. By the way, what the heck is "Tiger vision"?
Anyway, aside from their ability to make me delirious with laughter even after a bad round, friends and family make this life worth living. It wouldn't have mattered if I had shot 59 or 79. They couldn't wait to tell me how proud they are of me and how much they believe in me. Success is great, but it's the bad times that reveal life's true friends and meaning. So I'll count my blessings here and continue plugging away. Thank you all for being so loving and supportive. : )
