“If a lot of people gripped a knife and fork the way they do a golf club, they’d starve to death.” Those words of Sam Snead are hilarious. Thank God that I know how to properly grip a knife and a fork as evidenced by my fine physique. But Snead is right – perhaps the answer to loosing weight will be for me to hold that knife and fork in the same way that I hold the golf club. I spent part of yesterday on the Ambassador golf course with Gregg Charlton, Jerry Fraser and Gary Lauzon. It was a great day in support of the Essex Region Conservation Authority.

The highlight of the day was in our last hole which was number 8. It was a par 3 with a hole in one prize of a Harley Davidson. Gary Stepped up to the ball and plopped it on, it rolled past the hole about 8 inches to the right. From where we were it looked like it was headed in the hole. I think Gary’s heart stopped beating for a minute there. It was a remarkable really. Other highlights included Gregg driving the ball to forever on each hole, Fuzzy hitting just the most beautiful and straight drives, I had a few good second shots to put us on the dance floor and Gary was as I said dialled in to the point where he almost aced one. Did we win anything? No! Did we have a great time – …o yeah

It was good fun, good camaraderie, and good food and a great cause. Thank you to Gregg Charlton and Jim Evans for getting me involved in great day. It was also a great warm up for this weeks St. Mark’s by-the-Lake Open. We are all looking forward to Sunday and I feel a little warmed up now having played a scramble yesterday.  

It would be wrong to have a day so good as yesterday go undocumented. So I present to you a youtube video which shows great highlights of the day – a few good laughs in there for sure.
