I know I am overdue for a post about my Sonoma/Napa Valley trip but I spent the day yesterday at the PGA Championship Tournament in Atlanta and I find that I just must talk about my day.
First of all, I love golf tournaments. I love the landscaping at golf courses and I like 96% of the people that attend the tournaments. You have 3% of the men there that think they are experts. You can overhear them recommend club choices or explaining why a shot went wrong…but HELLO..when was their last qualifying round? I mean really, have they ever won more than $20 on a round of golf?
So you are probably wondering, who are the other 1%? Well, those are the women in attendance that think they are going to meet their husband at the golf tournament. Yep, Mrs. PGA! Ok, I have to admit that when I was single I also thought golf tournaments were a great way to meet men. I have NO problem with that. The problem I have is that this 1% doesn’t dress for a golf tournament, they dress for a dinner out on Saturday night. They are in high heels with a sundress, pearls and a large purse. I’m no expert on guys but I do think they are smart enough to know that when a woman is dressed like that at a golf tournament, they AREN’T there for a golf tournament. Come on women, dress the part. You can look really cute in a golf skirt and polo. As an extra bonus, most golf skirts have pockets so you won’t need that extra large purse that is the size of a small suitcase. While you are at it if you are planning a trip to the PGA tournament, watch a tournament or two on TV a few weeks before so you know what a Par 5 is and how many shots equal a birdie on a Par 5!
Oh and one more tip, if you are going to a golf tournament, spend a little time walking the course and enjoying the game.
Back soon with my Sonoma trip review…I promise!
