Wow. I've always had dreams of coming to New York City. It fascinates me, and I can't wait 'til I get to see it. I was pretty close today. The license plate on my car says New York, so that's cool, too.
I flew into Buffalo to save a few bucks. That also allowed me to see Niagara Falls. It is amazing. It took me awhile to get my rental car, so I didn't have a lot of time to linger. Maybe Sunday night. It was a bit of a dream come true, though. For some reason New England has a hold on me. If you get the chance to see the falls, do it. Along with the Grand Canyon, it's some of the most amazing scenery the country has to offer.
I've gotten to go to some amazing places this year. Hawaii, Mexico, Victoria, Calagary (the drive to Calgary from Vancouver), Montreal, and now Niagara and Toronto (the list goes on including past years...Monterrey, Rushmore, the Sturgis rally, the Texas Book Depository). My golf hasn't been as good as I hoped, but I'm learning a lot. International travel is different, but fun. I haven't been overseas yet, but I look forward to it. I'm living the dream, and I want this life more than ever. I'm VERY motivated, and I think this is going to be a good week.
I ended the Utah Open on a sour note. All was going well, but an aweful back nine left me with 76. I tied for 50th. Not very good. My swing came around this week, but I couldn't get it going. The last nine came with some bad breaks and some bad putting. I can't let things snowball like I did. Overall, though, I think I'm in good shape.
I'll see the course tomorrow. Canadian Tour Championship satrts Thursday.
