Stanford St. Jude Championship

This years golf tournament was June 5 - June 8. Parker and I were able to go out to the tournament on Thursday and Saturday. It was truly a great father-son moment. On Thursday, we had to quickly find Stuart Appleby, one of Parker's favorite golfers because he plays him on Tiger Woods golf on the Wii. Parker thought it was really cool to be able to see him. Then we watched Vijay Singh on the putting green and Parker quickly realized how important practicing was as he looked up at me and said, "Daddy, he never misses." We then went to the Buick Golf trailer where Parker got a visor (like Stuart Appleby), got his picture with Tiger Woods and got his first golf lesson. There was a pro analyzing golf swings and he had a 5 iron Parker's size. He showed Parker how to address the ball and swing. Parker was hitting them straight into the net and the pro said he was making great contact. Then we watched some tee shots on Hole #1 and Vance Veazy threw Parker a golf ball. He thought that was the greatest thing and wouldn't stop talking about. Parker did great being quiet while the golfers were hitting. After every shot he would yell out 'Nice Shot'. Everyone around us thought he was so funny. On Saturday we sat on the 18th green and chomped down on hot dogs and pronto pups. He thought it was great to clap for the golfers when they walked up the 18th fairway. He would say, 'Here come the golfers.' He looked up at me on Saturday and said,'Daddy, I like this golf tournament, thank you for bringing me.' That was truly a great moment and I can't wait till the tournament next year.
