... we asked for pictures of February 8th blizzard ...
Why am I sending you a sunny scene of a golf course for the snow article?
This is what I was seeing at the Champions Tour in Boca Raton while Melrose
was getting its plows and sanders ready to move out. It was such fun watching
the old timers that I have seen for years on tv teeing off in front of me at
the tenth. Corey Pavin, Mark O'Meara, Tom Kite, Tom Lehman, Hale Irwin and
eventual winner Rocco Mediate in his first Champions year. But I paid having
my car snowed in big-time at Logan Express.
Joe S. has taken me to task for using the phrase "old timers" and he is
absolutely correct. I was using this phrase as an endearing term of respect.
He mentions that Ken Venturi, Arnold Palmer, Tony Lima, Ben Hogan, Ray Floyd
are the old timers. The men I included are the kids on the Champions Tour.
I was caught up in the fact that we have seen them play for so many years.
They are so experienced and most still walk the course at a brisk pace.
Perhaps I am not facing the fact that I am in the old timers group, Joe.
