The par-3 course at Valderrama is the most fun place I've ever been to. We were like kids there today. I wish I was a kid again. Then I would quit school and hit wedges all day...shouldn't have written that...can't find the erase button in the dark now...damn it.
Last day here tomorrow then to Sicily. Cool:)
2011-03-10 Here are my brilliant ideas so far this week:
1. Let's go to Malaga to practice in the rain and cold where the courses aren't open. Yeah, such a good idea.
2. Let's play Valderrama when it's storm so you really think you suck! Yeah, what a great idea.
3. Let's eat as much crap as you can and see how slow you are in the gym. Awesome idea.
4. Let's stay as far away from the golf course and facilities you will use as possible. Another seriously good idea.
So far this "camp" is not perfect by any means but I've actually have gotten some stuff done. Maybe more tomorrow. Playing Sicily next week so I want to get in shape for that. It's going ok.
NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO...Valderrama was closed today because too much rain...NO NO NO.
The weather forecast looks crap from here on as well. I guess my anger right now is similar to a skier's anger when finally being able to go to the alps and you are not allowed to ski for a reason. Maybe not because of rain. I've always hated rain and now I disguise it. Go away.
Hung out inside Jason Floyd's acadamy at Sotogrande which was nice. But hoping for a dry day tomorrow. Costa del Sol??? sure...
In Puerto Banus now.
It felt weird going down here. No hire car booked, no hotel booked, no golf course to practice at booked, nothing booked at all. Usually, it's all booked and lined up. I feel like a backpacker.
I am given 2 or 3 days at Valderrama. I want to treat those days with care...be there when they open and leave when the sun goes down. I'll wait and use the days in the end of this week when the sun is up a few minutes more...:)
My nightmare now is that Valderrama has airified their greens with huge holes and the course is closed. That would be great. NOT.
If anyone feels like they are getting old quickly (I do), my advice is to board the Norwegian flight on a tuesday down to Malaga. You will guaranteed be the youngest on board.
Alone at a hotel room again...I'm going to bed and hoping for the sun to shine tomorrow.
Was hanging out with these high school kids today. They were fun.
