Boy, those are some great golfers there. I'd bet it's a thrill to get to see them in person. Looks like a beautiful course too.

Get this- my good friend, Paul Clark, used to be the chaplain for the Sr PGA. He asked if he and 2 of his friends could stay with us this week. I said SURE! He brought 2 of his best friends, Bernhard Langer and Fred Funk.

Tuesday and Wednesday we went to the course with Bernhard and went everywhere Bernhard went, ate where he ate and walked both courses while he practiced.

Paul introduced me to every pro we met. I can't name all the players I shook hands with. It was surreal!

And then every evening, we've all went out on the lake fishing.

I'm here to say these guys are first class. They understand that they are truly blessed to do what they do and are eternally grateful.

All I can say it ... unmerited favor and grace.

Wow that's awesome. Fred Funk has always seemed like a pretty cool cat. Neither one of them wanted to hold their own fish? And if you walked Buffalo Ridge then you definitely got your hike in for the day!

My brother and I had a great day at top of the rock. Phil said it best "surreal". We shook hands, autographs and walk the path with the players and governor Nixon (not stating anything political just the facts) and Johnny Morris. It was truly a blessed day for he and I. It's a beautiful place!

Naw- I try to hold everyone's fish. Better for the fish!

Never been to anything PGA. From the view on TV, no fans had any contact with the players that I've ever seen. This event is so different, may be because of the lack of space, especially at Top of the Rock, for spectators.

I guess most of the fans left after the second rain delay today. Fred said the course was bare. If there's another delay, if you're thinking about going, that would be a good chance to go and really have your way- go where you want to (outside the ropes of course).

That's very cool. Somehow I'm not surprised they are so grounded. Did you meet Tommy and Jack? I figure you did, but just gotta ask.
