I spent last week in Miami attending several NFL Alumni events and playing in golf tournaments. We played golf with the NFL Alumni on Sunday and Monday at Doral. Sunday we played the famous Blue Monster Course. This is my second time to play the Blue Monster. It is such a great course. I had the pleasure this time to have the use of a caddy. This was my first time to ever play with a caddy and let me tell you it made a world of difference. Sully (Sean Sullivan) was his name and he changed my golf game forever. Sully taught me how to hit the Pull Fade. Once I was able to grasp Sully concept and tips I was hitting the ball longer and straight than ever! Thanks Sully!!! I played this day with one of my friends and co-worker Al Marez, my good friend and professional triathlete Mark Fretta and NFL Alumni and former Miami Hurricane Fred Marion. Let me say that Fred is one of the nicest people I have ever had the pleasure of being around. He is a great golfer too.
On the second day we played the Greg Norman Signature White Course at Doral. I played with the same guys minus Fred. This day we played with NFL Alumni Dick Anderson of the Miami Dolphins. Awesome guy! We had a rain shortened round, but we had a blast while we were out there. And yes the Pull Fade from Sunday was still working! Thanks again Sully.
During the weekend we had the pleasure of talking and hanging out with NFL Legends like Lawrence Taylor, Sterling Sharp, Richard Dent of the 1985 Super Champion Chicago Bears, Mark Duper, Rollie Fingers and many more great guys. Let me tell you Lawrence Taylor is a GREAT golfer. He had his hand in a make shift cast and still shot 6 under the first day on the Blue Monster! Pretty impressive!
I wanted to share this story to give you a little peak into my personal life and let you know there is more to me than working out and thinking about nutrition. You have to keep life fun!
If anyone has played the Blue Monster at Doral or the Greg Norman Signature White Course, I would love to hear about your experience.
