Anyone nearby?

Post by Ravion Hawk »

I'm currently travelling for the PGA doing upgrades at various TPC Clubhouses.

Kinda wondering who is near these clubhouses:

TPC Twin Cities, MN
TPC River's Bend, OH
TPC Southwind, TN (Already know who is here, but the more the merrier.)
TPC Louisiana, LA
TPC Craig Ranch, TX
TPC Scottsdale, AZ
TPC Las Vegas, NV

Very long story short...

Something happened to my wife years before we met that we don't talk about...

I basically have a hall pass.


But when you have to rely on Uber for transportation, 1) you look very unprofessional to the clubhouses and 2) can't cash in a hall pass.

So you're right, no hole-in-one's for me.

I am rebuilding the wife's shot glass collection though. I get the glass of the tournament hosted by the clubhouse along with the unique golf ball of the club to sit in it. Then I try to get a glass from the local area and one from any new layover stop. So far she has:

From TPC Boston Trip
Deutsche Bank and TPC Boston golf ball
New England Patriots
I (heart) NY from LaGuardia

From TPC Twin Cities Trip
3M and TPC Twin Cities golf ball
2 Chicago shot glasses (different designs) from O'Hare


In other news, being a PGA Tour employee can get me into any PGA Lounge at an airport for free and I get to play with the golf simulators (Normally around $100 cost)...
Which I remembered pretty damned quick as to why I stopped playing golf. The tendonitis and bursitis in my shoulder flared up so badly that I took four 500mg Tylenol and a Starbucks cappuccino with 4 shots of espresso in it.

That's child's play.

I take Motrin like a veteran.

4 800mg Motrin and a can of NOS (Red Bull is just nasty).

All finished with that contract.

Was able to pick up $550 worth of minis from Iron Wind Metals for $80 when I was in Cincinnati. That means after the math, each mini was $4 each.

And 2 of those minis were the $60 Orcas.

Ended the trip in Vegas and got to play the KISS mini golf course at the Rio.
