|Early Morning on the Practice Green|

I finally made it to the shuttle. Rode over to the course and realized my volunteer badge was still in the car. Back to the lot! Once this was recovered, things went smoothly from there. However dark the walk from the road to the course was. It was crazy. I couldn't believe how dark it was on those roads, but I finally made it to the volunteer tent.
After check in, I found my spot next to one of the entrances to the practice green. Things were slow for a few hours. The first to tee of in the 7 am hour were out to practice. It was the New Breed ProAm. Lots of local stars (like Chris Paul and Roy Williams) were playing, as well as some well-known players like John Daly and Webb Simpson. I liked my place because I got to see all the golfers on the putting green See how the interacted with the fans and who was fun and who was too serious.
|Do you know how you can tell the Pros from the Ams?|
Pros are required to wear long pants. Most of the Ams wore shorts.

By mid afternoon, I was sleepy. My shift was from 6 am to 7 pm. I was so glad when we were dismissed at 6:10. I had a great time and would sign up again in a heart beat. I feel lucky that I was given the opportunity. Did you know that all PGA tournaments are done for charity? I didn't and that made it even more exciting for me.
The rest of the week was early to bed. We had dinner with friends on Friday night and that turned into a late night. Good thing we all have the same thought, though....we turn into pumpkins at midnight. We had a lot of fun and were grateful to be included for dinner. Lots of laughs and plenty of fun.
I hope you have had a fabulous weekend, too!
