    Was admiring the Titleist Tour Van parked by the Player’s Check-in. Wait - are there 2 vans?? There must be one at the Travelers for the TSR woods.

    Will be watching Nellie carefully. She should still be using the TSi-1 driver. No announcement on the TSR-1, yet. .

    Congressional looks awesome!! I love how the women's tournaments are moving to some more historic venues.

    Volunteering at the event, staying with son’s family in Bethesda. On transportation team so my shifts are before and after the 4 days of play. The AM times had rain until about 11am. Afternoon times get the luck of the draw today. Not bothering to go today. ..Fair weather watcher..

    I was hoping to go. I truly enjoy watching the LPGA. I follow many of those girls closely. Unfortunately, we are short staffed where I work in the proshop this week, so had to take extra shifts, including both weekend days. And today (Friday) I have to get in some golf on my day off. (Too much golf-WORK, not enough golf lately.)

    If you are going to be in town for awhile, I might be able to comp you and your son (does he play?) for a round on one of the better public courses in the state. Certainly, one of the tougher ones. (Typical Dye design.) Probably a mid-late afternoon round would be best, since I work those shifts most. PM me if you will be in the area for awhile.

    I don’t have access to pm here. You could find Don O’Brien on Facebook from Madison, WI to message there.
    My son has other things going on. Accordingly I left my LH clubs at home. Allows me to go directly to TSA with just my TT Titleist duffel bag.

    I’m scheduled for Tuesday 8-12:30 but all the courtesy cars should be returned on Monday (my other shift). If canceled I am twiddling thumbs until a 3 pm flight from DCA.

    Will just be hanging on course watching what could work for me. The woman play a similar game to mine. I have no idea what game the men play. Nothing like mine. The course looks huge. Prior to the rain, it was really pristine. One volunteer that is also a member noted they had to use a small mat for all short iron shots in the weeks leading up.

    I use to work the women's tour when it was in Charleston and hosted by Annika. I was head of security and there were four specific players we targeted with security. As Security Chair I choose to walk with Annika staying in touch with my other three teams by radio. These ladies play a great brand of golf just a bit shorter then the men. Annika actually played on the men's tour for an event or two. Pound for pound their swings are as good as any men's tour player. I only wish I could compare their game to mine. These ladies can definitely play a game I am not familiar with, having worked with them up close on the course. I have a special place for the LPGA and respect for the abilities.
