I had a wonderful stay in Chicago with cousins Sophie and Leo – lunch at Rocks, George and Tammy’s great new place. The Memorial Day BBQ at cousin George’s, fabulous golf at Turnberry Country Club, playing with George Manta … what a layout! A huge thanks to PGA pro Jami Brighty for golf, lunch and setting up the Channel 5 TV interview with Paula Farris. (Her husband, John, missed a hole-in-one by 2 inches on hole No. 8!) 

I played in Wisconsin, where pro Al comped the green fees and pull cart; it had rained and the greens were wet. Thanks also, Al, for the cap; I’ll wear it on my home course in San Clemente. As I was leaving the parking lot in Racine, Wisconsin, “Kinky Dynks,” who have played together every Tuesday for 40 years, handed me a cool one and wished me well. Thanks Lee, their main man. 

I played 36 holes in two states on May 27. Rain, again, so I donned my Callaway rain gear, opened the umbrella, and wiped off my glasses (they needed windshield wipers, it was so blustery) and then I was off again. Keep happy, The Happy Golfer.
