Hot Day Riding @ Texas Dirt Slingers

Corey and I took a Monday off to ride the dirt bikes. Nice day but the 100 degree temperature is tuff!

Spent the day with PGA Pro Billy Andrade

Well, I flew to Rhode Island and drove over to Massachusetts to Kittansett Golf Club to do an outing with Bill Andrade. Kittansett sits on the the Atlantic Ocean. It across from Martha 's Vineyard and down the road from Cape Cod. He's won a few times on tour and is really a great guy to work with.We finished up a long day on the course and he asks me if I play. I told him I grew up playing and kind of gave it up for motorcycles. He asks what my handicap was and I tell him a 5. He then starts announcing as if we where teeing it up at the U.S. Open. Hilarious!! He gave me a stroke on the last hole- a par 5- for the championship and announcing as I hit my tee shot: "On the 18th tee- with a one stroke lead- going into the final hole, Gary Perkins, a golf photographer from San Antonio, Texas..."
And even with all that- I hit my tee shot straight down the fairway! The badgering continued onto the green. I made par, he made birdie- which made us tied. The playoff will commence down the road at Philadelphia Country Club in July... when we meet again! Thanks Billy for making my day fun!!!
