Dear Ken,

Hard to believe that 10 years have passed since you were here.

Brien and I played a round for your birthday at Payne’s Valley Golf Course today. Inspired by how much you loved Tiger Woods, we played at the first public North American golf course designed by his design company. It is not fully opened yet – our round was 13 holes – which was plenty on a sunny 35C day. Pretty amazing to see a golf course under construction at the top of a mountain. The golf is challenging and fun. And the views are spectacular.

I passed a photograph of Payne Stewart in the clubhouse and it reminded me of this photo. What a swing you must have had. I wish I could have seen it. I know you always wanted me to take up golf. I couldn’t then. I’m glad I have now.

Wish you were still here to play a round with us and share a golf story or two.

You are loved and missed.

Bagels, beer and birdies


An early start to the day…
Powered by Einstein Bros Bagels, we’re all set for our second round of golf.
Love the beer cart girl- such perfectly timed meetings.

No birdies on the course, other than the feathered kind…
A great day on the course, and a Korean restaurant nearby!
물냉면 for lunch is simply perfect.

Grateful today for
a handful of good shots today,
more fun times with my MAO,
and for golf – Such Fun! Who Knew?!

Christmas Eve 2015


Breakfast at a classic diner,
and then to the golf course for game 1.
My mate is a great teacher and preps me for the course.

A super fun time,
followed by a cocktail on the beach,
and a mexican dinner with Mezcal!

Grateful today for
saying yes to our golfing vacation,
a superb golf instructor – Ed Zachary is truly awesome,
and for vacation time with MAO.
