Same Day: Spieth Plays Pine Valley & Augusta National 

Fine tuning the game for his TBD 2013-14 PGA Tour debut, Jordan Spieth put up a sweet 67 at Pine Valley, then played a late nine at Augusta National according to tweets by his playing partner and Dallas-based performance coach Cameron McCormick.

Pine Valley is in fall color mode...


And confirmation of the incredible same day PVGC/ANGC combo.

If they had needed a third ...

It's good to be king. Or king-in-waiting.

How nice!

I have had the privilege of playing Pine Valley and I concur about its status as #1. For any serious golfer with a bucket list it should be at the top. Wish there was some way to have the Ryder Cup matches there :)
Another sweet doubleheader: NGLA in the morning, hop in the G5, and then Cypress Point in the afternoon. Not that I've done it, mind you, but a man can dream.

Sounds like Spieth is a good friend to have.

Harv, sounds like Spieth has a good friend with a jet.

Also, I know that your alias is the late great E. Harvie Ward, did you hear about the death yesterday of Bill Harvey, another NC legend. Stories about his golf and his life are book worthy.
Wonder how the members feel about Augusta National being an afterthought...
10.16.2013 | Unregistered Commenter3foot1
S&T, I saw that and if you happen to see the reigning CGA POY please pass along my regards.

As for E. Harvie, I once caddied for my Dad in a pro-am at Billy Thomas's place on Roswell and his pro was none other than Mr. Ward himself ;) Oddly, the thing I remember most is he was a little guy...

I cannot bring myself to like a 20 year old millionaire pro golfer.... Sorry.
10.16.2013 | Unregistered CommenterCK
s and t, thanks for the heads up. I did not hear but am in the process of reading about it right now.
10.16.2013 | Unregistered Commenterol Harv
Thanks guys for the info on Bill Harvey. Scott is a friend, but I wouldn't have known about it otherwise.

This reminds me of the joke email that comes around every year or so comparing "her perfect day" with "his perfect day" -- I know we've all seen it.
