I wasn’t planning on attending the Boeing Champions’ Tour event this year but Schwab gave me a pass to their hospitality suite overlooking the 18th green so I decided to take advantage for the offer. I followed Tom Lehman and Rocco Mediate for five holes or so just to watch two guys who don’t have classic, super athletic swings but still are superb ball strikers. It was really fun, especially when Rocco birdied four of the first five holes. These guys are so impressive.
Another Fantastic Day at the Boeing Classic Golf Tournament
I think this is the fifth year I’ve attended the first day of the Boeing Classic Golf Tournament at TPC Snoqualmie Ridge. Once again, it was a perfect weather day: mid 70’s with just a few scattered clouds. I watched warm-ups for about 45 minutes then had a traditional hot dog for lunch with a couple of scoops of Ben and Jerry’s for dessert. I watched several groups over the first four holes, spent a few minutes at the number 9 green then camped out just off the 14th green to see who could successfully navigate the now famous “canyon hole.” It was perversely gratifying seeing Andy Bean take a seven on the hole, hitting out of two bunkers, sculling the second attempt into the woods and finally two-putting from inside ten feet.
