Love the West Coast Swing

The Northern Trust Open at the beautiful Riviera CC in Pacific Palisades!  This is one of my most favourite times of the year for the PGA Tour.  This course is amazing – starting from the elevated Tee box #1 that is located right in front of the pro shop to the Bunker in the middle of the green on the par 3.  Great test of mental skills – do you go for the green on the drivable par 4 #10 or do you lay up?  Great holes – Great players!  Here is a picture of Me and Sergio when I was there a few years ago watching a practice round.



Pebble Beach Pro-Am

This weeks PGA Tour event is the Pebble Beach Pro-Am. I was fortunate to play both Pebble Beach and Spyglass in 2008. Both courses have their own challenges: for me Pebble was difficult due to strong winds and light rain the day we played. On #7 it was only a little chip 54 degree wedge to the middle of the green. Looks like the pros have a nice weather day today! Spyglass weaved its way through the local trees, up and down, and around the dog-legs. I could lay across the middle of the 4th green and touch both edges of the fringe with my toes and finger tips! What makes these courses difficult are the small greens – you have to be precise and have the sun on your side.

Looking forward to enjoying the final round at Pebble…is Tiger on his way back?
