It is great to be back at the Home of Golf! About to set off on a Guided Walk of the Old Course!

Mine was a round that had a little of everything. A perfect drive and pure 7-iron over the Valley of Sin to 20 feet on the final hole. A much less distinguished nervous opening tee shot. From a side hill/uphill lie next to the infamous 'Hell Bunker' I punched a superb half 6 iron right at the white flag on the 4th green; unfortunately, we were playing the red-flagged 14th. I had my share of long, long, long putts: One was about 125 feet. On the treacherous Road Hole, the 17th, I ended up in the enormous steep sod-faced bunker guarding the middle of the green - blasted out to about 15 feet and made the putt, though this was after my first tee shot (and my provisional) landed on someone's Old Course Hotel balcony ... my caddie, Steve, described my attempted line as 'a bit aggressive' on the blind shot over the famous sheds. Toward the end of the round, I asked Steve if there was anything I hadn't experienced during the round. He responded, 'Well, you haven't listened to your caddie yet'.

A dream come true for these two California gals.

Coming from Germany it was Heidi’s dream to play the Old Course. When I told her we were going to play there, there were tears of joy as a dream was about to be realised especially as our allocated tee time was on her birthday. For any golfer, this was the best birthday present you could ever get.
