Last Wednesday Matt and I went to a practice round at the PGA Championship at Atlanta Athletic Club. It was my first major.
When we got there, Tiger had started on the back nine and was almost on hole 18. We along with a huge crowd saw him play the 18th.
We ran to Hole 1 to watch him play the front nine, but he only played nine holes. Bummer.
The nice thing about golf is that you can see so many top athletes at once and get pretty close to them. It really is amazing how good they are.

Red pants… not just for Georgia boys.
Matt was a kind brother letting me follow the Australian hottie Adam Scott. I’ve been a fan of him for quite some years, and he was runner-up at the Masters this year and won the Bridgestone the weekend before. Plus, his caddy just so happens to be Stevie Williams.
Since Adam is kind of a pretty boy, I decided Keegan Bradley would work out for me just fine. :)
I also got to see Whitney’s b/f Rory McIlroy. Maybe we’ll double date sometime…
In fact, I’m still waiting on Rory to respond to my tweets.
The course was beautiful, and the weather was hot (it is Atlanta in August) but nice with a constant breeze. Perfect day for golf. The course looked impossible. Tons of bunkers and water.

Hole 18… lots of water, where we saw lots of balls go
