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:
- Quite a big turn out. Lots of crowd in the 1st tee. Also on 9th, 18th, and 15th greens.
- Not many giveaways.
- A lot of people like to scream (heckle?) at Fuzzy Zoeller.
- We arrived late at 2:30pm, so we missed the Toshiba “employee appreciation” lunch.
- 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.
