|Bonnie Bell, |
2014 Star Fort Ladies Golf Association Champion
I'd just settled in and adjusted to the fact that Pettersen had dropped back and there was a rookie in the mix at the Meijer -- Mirim Lee was playing at the top of the board alongside golf's Serene Queen -- when my Facebook chat went wild.
Matt Hooper, St Andrews Golf Magazine editor and Les Bailey, ProGolfNow editor, were yelling at me:
You're missing a classic . . . this is the matchup we've waited for . . . and no Tiger!

But I had some good shots to tuck into my memory bank and I had one shot out of a bunker that was downright terrific -- it would have qualified for a Golf Channel replay!

About eighteen months ago Charlie Bethel -- my younger son who does not play golf but with whom I share a passion for the written word, and who was working on his own writing project while he was visiting me -- suggested that I start writing a golf blog. Over a pleasant alfresco lunch on my deck we talked about that suggestion. Quite honestly, I'd never considered blogging. I'm a writer of books. But I followed Charlie's suggestion and found an intellectual, literary, and spiritual home in blogging. It's a dynamic form, offering an almost instantaneous connection with my readers, providing a venue with an embedded feedback loop, a virtual conversation.
You are crucial partners in this ongoing conversation that I enjoy so very much.

|Monnie at the 2014 SFLGA Spring Tournament|
Let me describe Monnie: she's the Lexi Thompson of the geriatric golfer set. She's strong, has a powerful swing, and is always nicely put-together, with a seemingly endless supply of matching visors, gloves, shirts and shorts.

Friends who neither play nor follow golf and who do not share my passion were waiting for me to join them for dinner. I texted -- order some appetizers and have a drink -- I'm going to be late -- must see this hole to the end.

|Wes Bethel, fully kilted and ready for battle, |
The Links at Bodega Bay, California
Wes Bethel takes his golf very seriously and he's rolling in Monday evening for another 2 or 3 rounds in the ongoing Bethel Wars match play. I wonder if he's bringing his kilt? He's sort of cute in a skirt!
