Sue ‘Ace’ Dubay Only Needs One Swing on #8

Congratulations to Sue Dubay. Sue aced the par 3 8th hole this afternoon from the gold tees. She was using a 5-wood to negotiate the 132-yard shot while playing with Jim Evans (he wouldn’t tell me what HE made on the hole!). This was her first-ever hole-in-one.

Way to go Sue!

Karma – It’s Real Enough if You Think It Is

I’m not sure if it’s real or if it’s like your daily horoscope. If you’ve done something sketchy and then have something sketchy happen to you, is it really Karma coming back around, or is it like a horoscope where you make the situation fit the circumstances?

To answer those last two questions, I would have to say no and no. Continue reading
