2014 Petersen Shootout Day 2


The golf trip includes a bunch of complementary stuff, including a free breakfast each morning. Moving a little slow, Larkin and I eventually wandered down and had breakfast in the hotel. Catching up with Gainsley, we wandered across the street to an odd little shopping mall looking for a charger for my phone. I left home without one…

Back at the hotel, we packed everyone in my car and left about 9:30 am with the intention of making a stop for provisions. We played the second day at the Sun Ridge Golf Club. Rather than playing your own ball, it was a shamble; you play the best drive and then your own ball from there.

One of the highlights of the day had to be Gainsley's pants!

Teeing off at 11 am with a shotgun start from hole #2, we played with the same foursome as the first day [Larkin, Gainsley and Mike Roessler]. I continued to struggle with my putting, but started to drive the ball well on the back nine. I think that we may have used 5 or 6 of my drives on the back nine. I ended up with a liberal winter rules 101.

After everyone was finished, there was a closest to the pin contest on the 19th hole. I am not sure who won.

Heading back to the hotel, we stopped at Best Buy so I could get a phone charger. Getting cleaned up, there was a group prime rib dinner at Red's Old 395 Grill. The restaurant put the group in a large room where they could close the doors.

I played Blackjack for about an hour and a half after dinner with a couple of the younger guys in the group (Rod's nephew et al). Putting down $100, I walked away with $149.50. I was very pleased. I finished the night watching SNL and listening to Larkin snore.
