BMW Open Celebrity AM



The Highlight Of My Summer Was Playing In The BMW Celebrity AM At Cog Hill, Dubsdread On September 6th. The Golfer On The Far Right Routinely Hit 350+ Yard Drives Which Allowed Us To Tie For 1st Place In The Tournament.

The Western Golf Association Charities Benefits The Evans Scholarship. To Win An Evans Scholarship Is Quite An Honor. All The Caddies At The Tournament Were Evans Caddies. As A Former Caddy I was Both Proud And Humbled To Be In The Presence Of So Many Talented, Special Young People.

We All Had Such A Great Time!

On The 13 Tee Box An Official Photographer Took Photos Of Each Group And Each Player With The Celebrity Player. The Celebrity Was Asked To Autograph An iPad. At The End Of The Round, Each Player Had This Framed Plaque. Amazing Turn Around Time. While Getting Photographed I Was Just Itching To Ask The Photog Questions. Our Celebrity, Reg Kerr, Former Chicago Blackhawk, Was The Nicest Guy And Great Golfer Too.

We All Got Hats And Golf Shirts That Were Exactly Like The Marshal’s. Tempted To Act In An Official Way!

Bettinardi Rocks



Got An Opportunity Top Be Fit For A Putter At Bettinardi Golf In Tinley Park, IL. I was Treated Like A Tour Pro, Got A Great Putting Lesson, Cool New Putter That Fits Me, Great Putter Head Cover, Golf Towel, Met Robert Bettinardi. He Got My Autograph, But I Did Not Get His. Today Was A Very Cool Day!

I Did Not Know I Would Be In A Photo When I Left The House. Thankfully, I Am More Skilled AT Photoshop Than Golf.

The New Invaders Rocked Me! They Play 60′s And 70′s Music But are Not An Oldies Band. Oldies Bands Are Hokey, Predictable And Boring. Not The New Invaders! Every Song Ripped Like It Was Brand New! All Six Members are GREAT Singers, Many Play Multiple Instruments, Many Of The Songs They Played You Will NEVER Hear Played Live! The Hollies, Look Through Any Window Had Me Floating About 3 Feet Off The Floor!  I had Last Heard Jim Herter At The White Elephant Or A Bar On Western Avenue Playing With High School Buddies In The Wooden Planet. Off They All Went Mid 70′s To LA To Make Music. What A Treat It Was To Listen To This Band. As A Guitar Player And Former Band Member I know How Much Is Put Into The New Invaders Performances. Vintage Instruments, Learning Difficult Music, Singing With 6 People Can Be A Challenge, But These Guys, And Gal, Pulled It Off Magnificently. The New Invaders Cover 80 Bands. 80! Every Great Band Needs 2 Leed Guitar Players And A Girl Singer. Wow Can She Sing!

If You Get A Chance, See These Guys. They Have A Web Page. Google Them!
