Today was the first day of The Oregon Classic golf tournament. My daughter, Lily, is a member of The First Tee, and the kids were asked if they wanted to be volunteers at the tournament. She held the sign that displayed the player’s scores. We were with Arjun Atwal, Chris Riley, and Jay Don Blake.
Here’s Lily watching Chris Riley chip onto the green.
The day was much colder and the sign much heavier than we expected. Needless to say, Lily got a little exhausted from the experience. But we had a great time anyway. It is amazing to watch these pro golfers up close. It is also fun to be able to walk inside the ropes with the players (or, not exactly with them, but somewhat near them and not in their way). Golf is an amazing and humbling sport.
