I had the pleasure of playing the Tour 18 course in Humble/Houston yesterday in incredible heat (I did my Rachael Ray impression and wore an iced-down towel on my head most of the day). I think LJ has played this course, too.

It was a fund raising tournament supporting Methodist Retirement Communities, a client of my firm.

On my team's very first hole, the ninth for the course, we faced faced the famous island green of Sawgrass's 17th. It's not long but very intimidating.

First guy, in the drink. Second guy (moi), 20 feet from the pin, third guy (firm's important client), in the drink. Fourth guy, hitting his 28th tee shot ever...10 feet from pin, d--n him!

Yep, played it. Wasn't exactly what I expected, but still was pretty cool. I was a much worse duffer then (not that I'm anything to write home about now) and the course kicked my butt.

What did you shoot Scooter?

Played pretty well for me but since it was a best ball I didn't really keep score. Team finished 2 over and winning team was about 13 under.
