It’s ‘Golfer’s Day’

April 10th, 1916, the first PGA Championship was held in Bronxville, New York. It’s believed to be the first professional golf tournament in the US. Jim Barnes was the winner and won $500. 101 years later, Sergio Garcia won $1.98 million dollars when he won the green jacket yesterday.

If you missed the Masters yesterday, you missed a fantastic finish between Sergio and Justin Rose. Or were you like me and taped it and missed the final putt by Sergio. I set the DVR to tape an extra half hour and just as Sergio lined up the putt, it stopped. UGH!

Sergio won his first major on the birthday of his idol, Seve Ballesteros. He would have been 60 yesterday.

So today is “Golfer’s Day” and what a great way to celebrate. It’s going to be sunny and 74 today. Maybe I can convince my brother-in-law Johnny V to play. Whenever we play, I write “LOSER” on my golf ball. Why?

Before we start play we usually ask each other what ball we are going to use. Usually I play Callaway or Bridgestone. I show him my ball and say “I’m playing a Loser today.”

He never gets why I snicker after I tell him but that’s one of the reasons  I like playing against him. Congrats Sergio!
