I went to Newport Beach Country Club on Saturday afternoon at 2:30pm to see the Champions Tour, hosted by Toshiba.  I’ve seen these senior guys on TV before, and I’ve known their names.  Seeing them in real life was a different experience.  I don’t go out to see golf tournaments, so when I get a chance, I usually go.

Some  of the things I observed there:

  1. Quite a big turn out.  Lots of crowd in the 1st tee.  Also on 9th, 18th, and 15th greens.
  2. Not many giveaways.
  3. A lot of people like to scream (heckle?) at Fuzzy Zoeller.
  4. We arrived late at 2:30pm, so we missed the Toshiba “employee appreciation” lunch.
  5. They ran out of red hats to give away.  But my wife managed to get one from one of the staff.

Eduardo Romero was on top of the leaderboard when I was watching.  He went to win it on Sunday.

  1. hey Rudy,
    I’m glad to hear the golf tournament was busy. That must be a positive sign for the economy?
    I admire golfers. I’ve tried golf, and appreciate how much concentration it takes. And perseverance, especially in a sand trap. :) ~ Steve, the trade show guru

    Well, it’s Newport Beach. They’re not really affected by the economy – do they? :-)

    Golf is not for everyone. It requires time, money, and patience – which no one really has a whole lot of.

  3. Hey Rudy,
    Your reply cracks me up! I do remember the few time I played when I lived in the midwest that racing around in the golf carts was the funnest part. I think that says how serious we were.
    Time, money, and patience… yes, I could use more of all three. :)
