I played 18 holes at Laurel Golf Club in Billings, Montana on Friday – a great course. Thursday, I played an equally scenic course, Briarwood. In six days I’ played six rounds in all in the Billings area and was written up in the Billings Gazette. Someone should inform me that my program only calls for two rounds per state! I was recently told that the late Ely Callaway liked to under-promise and over-deliver, so people always got more than they expected, and it made them happy. The Happy Golfer likes that philosophy.
Here’s a link to a nice story from the Billings Gazette; don’t miss the fun photo gallery: http://www.billingsgazette.net/articles/2009/06/12/sports/local/21-happygolf.txt
I was eagerly waiting at the airport Saturday for my “mystery guest.” Like the line from Casablanca goes: “This could be the start of a beautiful friendship.” My visitor arrived at 1:42 p.m., and the Do Not Disturb sign went up on the Winnebago View at 1:47. Yes, the guest was my lovely wife, Fran. The Happy Golfer has a smile on his face.
Stay tuned; there are more ultrasurprises coming this week …
