My coach and her partner Gina were here for a week-long visit. Pat Park coached me during my five years at Lamar University, in Beaumont, Texas. It truly was from her that I learned how to get the ball in the hole, no matter how poorly I may have been striking the ball. I can hear her saying to us members of the Team, "Y'all have got to learn to golf your ball." It was the beginning of something big. To be able to score well by having a creative imagination and a good short game was invaluable throughout my career. Good stuff.
It was great to see them. We had a lot of laughs during the week, remembering the good old days. We took a trip to Whistler, they toured the city, and we had a nice dinner at home with special Lamar University Golf Team Alumni guests, Patty and Phil Jonas. They both played on the Golf Teams at Lamar and that is where they met. Their great kids came too, Emma and Patrick. Lots of old stories were told. Golf is the bond, after all of these years.
