St. Andrews allows women (BTW - I hope Condi joins)

 

First tree has turned colors at my home course.

 

Woolly caterpillar sighting - 100% brown - no band

They sure rushed into that one. It only took them what; 600 years?

 

Starting to loose balls under fallen leaves. Winter is coming.

I find it funny that we've got this one tree on our course that always turns 2 weeks earlier than it's brothers on the same hole. I find it disconcerting to see woolies that are all brown with no bands. This week I also I heard a report of a dog owner saying that their dog had put on a heavy winter fur layer by this time last year, but this year nothing.

The membership tradition is certainly changed, but the finest female to play St. Andrews is still Joyce Weathered. Compare her swing to Bobby Jones or even Nicklas, and you will see what I mean (after adjusting for the the torque in the hickory era clubs). Jones said she was the finest golfer he had ever seen, and if not for the difference in their "sex," she would have beat him in the exhibitions they played. Like Jones, she was shy and didn't like pressure, and retired by age 24 or 25. She came out of retirement to play Glenna Collett Vare for the championship at St. Andrews, and won.
