Pebble Beach

Here is the way the 18th hole at Pebble Beach looked this afternoon just minutes after Phil Mickelson made a birdie putt to assure him the win at the Pro-Am meet. He is shown picking his ball out of the cup after having shot a sensational round with Tiger Woods. Tiger was on the green in 2 at the par 5 18th and missed a short birdie putt to finish tied for 15th place. His putter let him down all day.

Here is the way the 18th hole looked on June 29, 2000 when we visited there. I took the picture with my wide-angle Advantix camera. Elaine and I went out to California a few days ahead of a family reunion at Merced.  We saw some baseball games and visited Pebble Beach. It is a very beautiful place, and I would enjoy playing golf there under the right conditions. Those conditions would include: An 80% reduction in fees; no spectators; only one playing partner who wouldn't laugh (Don, Larry or Charlie); an extra dozen yellow balls; and, something interesting for Elaine to do during the several hours that would take us to get around.

  1. When you come out to the Family Reunion , 2013- we'll have to see what we can do about that - wouldn't that be awesome? I'll have to see if I know anyone that is connected there - - have to work on that one!
