The starting line of a race is always tense. Everyone is a bit too tightly packed in which adds to the tension as the competitors size each other up. As a co-chair of Booth’s Golf Club, I knew that attending this unconventional outing is an annual Booth Golf tradition. Back on the starting line, contestants scanned the crowd and realized who their main competition would be. My group of Boothies had been in line since 6:00 AM, so we were anxious to get going.
At 7:00 AM, the front groups got the signal and the race was on. Next to me, the guy in the Romphim quickly sidestepped the guy wearing the “Saturdays are For the Boys” flag like a cape but was deftly blocked at the pass by the girl in the sundress. Of course, as you may have guessed by now, we were at no ordinary race. We were at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, often described as “The Greatest Show on Grass.”
