Well, I took some time off for the first time this year. I really took it easy while I was home, just doing family stuff and running some errands. It was a nice break, as I'm not likely to get another before the end of the "season."
Today I made most of the drive to Garden City, Kansas. I'm about three hours away, so I'll be able to get a practice round in tomorrow. The tournament has the pro am format, two days playing with amateurs, the final day with pros (after the cut). The BIG difference is that you don't play with the normal 3 amateurs in a foursome, but with 5 amateurs in a sixsome. This will be new to me, and I expect the rounds to be very long. Patience will pay off this week, that is one thing I'm sure of. We'll see how it goes.
