When I Was Born

Last Thursday, I went to the fabulous Oak Hill Country Club in Rochester NY to watch the opening round of the PGA golf championship. In prepping for the trip, I flipped through my considerable collection of gaudy Loudmouth golf shorts to pick out the pattern I would wear. In short order, I decided to to wear my cherry bombs.

As you might guess, I received lots of comments while cruising the course all day among tens of thousands of other people. Most of them were along the lines of “cool shorts” – especially from young kids. One dude asked me if I lost a bet, to which I replied “how did you know?“. Another guy asked me “when did you decide that you just don’t care?“. After a quick LOL, I told him “I don’t know exactly when, but perhaps it was when I was born“.

    Nice shorts! If you are a golfing fan you have probably heard of Stuart Appleby? Wikipedia….’He was born in Cohuna in rural northern Victoria, and grew up on a nearby dairy farm. He began in golf by hitting balls from paddock to paddock after his farm chores were completed.’ He grew up on a farm near my sister and went to the same school as me :-). My sister and his mum are friends – a little bit of trivia 🙂

      Yes I do remember Stuart. It wasn’t so long ago when he was right up there with the best in the game. He’s faded a little because I don’t see his name in the big tournaments anymore.

      You must have been rooting for Aussies Jason Day and Adam Scott. Jason Day made the best shot I saw on Thursday.
