Round Played: with Kelly and Deborah Rich –

Cleaning out the Rust –

On May 3rd 2015 I played the Kauai Lagoons Golf Course with Kelly and Deborah Rich from Santa Cruz, California.  I played so poorly the last time that I wanted to clean out some of the rust.  My wife, Sally, came along to make sure I had fun doing it.

This was a photogenic and fun group.  We laughed and celebrated everything – even the pleasant discoveries.

Sally took many of the pictures so I could concentrate.

The concentration really helped.  I didn’t qualify for the US Open on this day, but I played much better.  And Sally continued to take great pictures (who knew she had talent for that).

But of course, Sally is Sally – she wanted in front of the camera too.

Out by the ocean I had no trouble getting people to smile for pictures.  You just have to smile out there.  And I continued to strike the ball well, so you can bet I was smiling also.

Deborah even got into posing for the camera

On 14 I had a birdie putt.  It was really long, all the way across the green and up a slope, but it was a birdie putt.  I concentrated and rolled the ball up to within a couple of inches of the cup.  This brought out the ‘coach’ in Sally.

Deborah: “Wow Wayne, that was a good putt.”    Sally: “No Deborah, it wasn’t.  The good ones go in.”

Deborah: “Wow Wayne, that was a good putt.”
   Sally: “No, it wasn’t. The good ones go in.”

.

Since Sally had ‘coached’ a birdie on 16 the day before – she felt challenged to repeat it.  So, I had to both play and take pictures while she worked.

Of course I took the lighthouse picture

This was a great day on the course.  Great friends – great shots – great times.  It was the way golf should be.

Come play golf with me.

  1. Aloha Wayne,

    Glad you knocked some of that rust off. Qualifying for the US Open is almost a formality next time! Did Kelly and Deborah mention their local gem in Santa Cruz, Pasatiempo? One of my favorites.

    Cheers
    Josh

    • Aloha Josh,

      Thank you. Maybe they mentioned Pasatiempo to Sally but I did not hear it. However it is on my list now based on your recommendation.

      A Hui Hou,
      Wayne
