Bill’s Corner – Golfing with Graeme

 

Bills corner - golfing with graemeAlright some of you might have read the special announcement the other day about me golfing with Graeme McDowell. Well that Super Special round of golf with Graeme (Yes we are on a first name basis now) has taken place. I think the biggest question most of the people following along wanted to know was how this was even possible. Consensus from most people was that I won the GolfNow Contest. I really did not know how I received this amazing once in a Lifetime Opportunity. Well that is a bit to dramatic I might play another few rounds with G-Mac. Why you might ask? The answer is very simple people. It’s because he knows I’m the Golf Father. No, that’s not really it. Okay I might not ever play another live round of golf with him, but I have memories of this time that will last forever! Alright let me get back to the question. How did this opportunity come about? Lots of speculation, but the answer is….. The amazing folks from GolfNow gave me this wonderful opportunity for being one of their “Most Loyal Customers”. They wrote that not me, I’m just quoting. ;-)

I am truly honored. All this time I have been grateful for GolfNow and all the amazing places I have been able to golf, because of their special deals. I have no shame in saying that if not for GolfNow, I couldn’t play some of the best courses around. They make it affordable as well as convenient to find a perfect Tee Time. Thank You Golf Now, I could never thank you enough for the wonderful recognition and experience.

Time to give you a short version of my amazing day with Graeme McDowell! It started off meeting the GolfNow Team at the Lobby of Lake Nona Golf and Country Club. They handed me a lovely gift basket and thanked me for coming. Ha-ha No Thank you for having me. Yes I said that in my mind. We went and all sat and discussed what kind of day the 3 of us were going to have. Yes there were three of us lucky people chosen to play with Graeme.

Range Time! Hit a few balls, when I noticed G-Mac driving up in his cart. Dang I hope he couldn’t tell I was nervous. We meet and greet, take a few photos. By now the nerves are really kicking in. This just got REAL, quick someone pinch me. Graeme pulls out his wedge smacks a few and we are off to the first Tee.

I could write forever about this day but I will give you the short version about our round. It took me about 7 holes to relax. During the round, Graeme was like a friend I hadn’t seen in awhile. We cracked jokes, golfed, drank beers, laughed at our games (Not his Silly people).

Short and sweet directions, that really helped me towards the end of our round. Now because I am honest I have to include that Mr. McDowell did on occasion give me some troubling advice greenside. Some of you are thinking right now “Oh No He Didn’t”. Well oh yes he did! For Example: I was in the 1st cut greenside he told me to aim at his feet, I chipped ball at his feet. Trouble is I looked down and up during that time he moved! Can you imagine that? Boy was I upset. Not really everybody laughed including myself. The round was simply perfect.

 

Bills corner - golfing with graemeWhen the round was over G-Mac asked if I wanted to have a round at the club house or Nona Blue? Now while both are great choices. The easiest choice was Nona Blue. When we arrived I got a Pint, and ate some yummy tasting appetizers. Here is where my amazing day ends.

Thank you, Graeme McDowell and The wonderful folks at GolfNow for everything. You have added some amazing memories and stories to this guy’s life. I will be forever grateful.
