Shell Houston Open

I went with my Dad to the Shell Houston Open PGA golf tournament on Friday despite the nasty cold windy rainy Texas weather (not typical temperature for this time of year but fits in with the craziness that is southeast Texas weather). I had a blast, I love the golf tournament! It helps that a friend of my Dad's has an executive VIP tent so we get free close tournament parking with no need for a shuttle, A/C in the tent, private bathroom (read: no porta-pottys), free food and drinks. :-) Seriously it is a good time and I am lucky to be able to attend. I wish the weather wasn't so bad because I would have liked to stay longer. But it was seriously cold and windy. Plus we had gotten wet on the walk to the tent so we were wet and cold. And that equals sucky golf watching situation. I even drank some coffee to keep warm, and I definitely remembered why I don't drink coffee... YUCK!

But anyways, our tent was on the green of a par 3 hole #16. Awesome Awesome seats to have. I got an up close look at the golf pros as the came to putt. And let me tell you, some of those boys are PRETTY! Seriously attractive players. I am not going to lie, when I came home I googled some of their names to see how old they were and just to gawk at their pictures. After doing some researching, I might just drop out of grad school and become a PGA tour stalker. LOL, ok not really but it would be a way better idea than school!

If you live in the area, check out the tournament next year ;-)
