How can two guys play so well (at times) and still lose two games in the Ryder Cup today. USA leads 5-3 after the first day but the Steve Stricker-Tiger Woods pair lost two. Mickelson and Bradley had a great day as did several of the other Americans. We will see what tomorrow brings, but it's nice to start out with a lead.
Our most significant accomplishment of the day was meeting with Dr. John Summa and getting lined up with him as our family physical. He has some 8 years of experience and all indications are that he will satisfy our needs. We have been spoiled with Dr. Vahle filling that role for the past 20 years or so. He was not only our Doctor but also a family friend. As we get older, any change is difficult but we will make it. I don't even like to change the shirt that I've worn the past 2 days playing golf. I think I'll wear it again tomorrow.
The Royals are taking a beating in Cleveland where they are behind 8-1 in the 5th inning. Earlier this evening, the Indians catcher broke his bat into two pieces when he held up on a strike. I had never heard of that happening before. It demonstrates the extreme strength of an individuals wrist when they can do that.
