Today I played The Jubilee Course here in St. Andrews. The weather and the pace of play didn't warrant much time for photos other than the two below. As you can see from the picture we had a mixture of sun and clouds out there today. I played with two chaps from Manchester, John and Tony. They were in a heated Best of 5 match series and I got a front row seat. We had the best time, despite some of the dodgy golf. It is always funny to see and hear people work through some rough patches out on the golf course. While the commentary may sound a lot different, it's all the same!
I went back up to The St Andrews Golf Club for a while to wait on Kristen. She was at the spa this afternoon so I had some time to kill. More time for me to soak up wisdom from "The Elders" in the window. While there, I met another member Hampton and his son Dylan, over from North Carolina. We hit it off quickly and appreciated the fact that we spoke the same brogue. We made plans to play a new course for all of us, Scotscraig Golf Club on Thursday. Looking forward to it. Hampton is over to play The Town Match this coming Saturday. The Town Match is the biggest event of the year for the club as a team from our club as well as the others in the area take on a team from the R&A. With our troublesome Hurricane season back home, quite a few team members from all sides are not going to be here. As such, I am hoping to get the chance to compete for the club. We shall see.
Kristen came back all smiles from the spa and was ready for some dinner. We decided to try an Italian place called Zizzi. The food and service were excellent. We also made a new friend this night and his name was Chocolate Waffle.

|Yes, it was that good!!!!|
Another beautiful evening and walk home here in this Auld Grey Toon. Tomorrow we are slated for rain all day so who know's what we'll get into. That is all!
