    Tas-Tee at our first Korn Ferry Tour Event

    Tas-Tee at our first Korn Ferry Tour Event

    The most successful things in life seem to come naturally for us and this event was another example.  The week started by volunteering at our local Texas Rangers Golf Course for the upcoming Korn Ferry Tour event hosted in Arlington, Texas.  The tour swapped the nines, which was a little confusing but I’ll be referring to each hole as they were during the tournament. 

    I was personally on site for most of the course setup. I helped out w signage, filling divots, roping off the course and player registration. I met so many wonderful golf people; volunteers, caddies, security, maintenance, and of course, the pros. 

    Golf side story- While registering the players, I noticed David Lingmerth’s  name on the list. Though he walked in with his mask on, I still recognized him right away. Somewhat startled he asked, “Do I know you?” I said, “2018, TPC Sawgrass, island green on Sat. You hit your tee shot right down the walkway to my feet. I had to move so you could hit.” Before saying another word, David said, “yeah, I flubbed the chip then got up & down for bogey, I remember you!” It’s crazy how the tour pros never forget a swing. It was good to catch up w David & I’m sure we’ll see him down the road. Here’s a direct link to that backstory: 

    On Wednesday there was a pro/am conducted in the “shamble” format. We followed the Mayor of Arlington, Jeff Williams and the Athletic Director of UTA, Jim Baker and their group around the beautifully manicured Texas Rangers GC.  Thursday started the Veritex Bank Championship and most eyes were on amateur Tony Romo playing on a sponsor’s exemption. The weather was a bit cool, esp in the morning. Although the weather eventually warmed up, our hero stayed cold throughout most the week. Tony actually started his week w his best highlight; he chipped in for eagled on his first hole! Here he is teeing off the 10th hole on Thursday morning: 

    A pulled tee shot at 11 was corrected by a beautifully played second but he missed the birdie putt. A missed green at the short par 3 12th but he recovered nicely w an up & down. From there Tony struggled to score but played to the home crowd whenever he could muster a smile. Here’s his tee shot on his final hole on Thursday. 

    Friday we were able to get some golf in before the rain came but once it started, there wasn’t much we could do to get it back to playable on Friday and the 2nd round day was cancelled until 730am on Saturday. 

    Brick, the course superintendent, and his relatively small crew worked tirelessly Fri night & Sat morning to get the course back in tournament shape. Huge props goes to them for being able to pull this off, it was epic!

    Saturday I was officially assigned “Tony Romo Duty” as my volunteer position for the day. Having met Tony a few days earlier, we had some laughs as he and his caddie, Mark, made their way around the course. I was there for every single shot, mostly kept fans quiet & out of his line of sight but I also helped find his ball on the 13th hole. As we’re walking up 18th fairway he asked if I had any more of those Lime flavored tees, to which I said, of course! I went live on IG from the 18th fairway and he had a Tas-Tee in his mouth when he hit his final approach of the tournament. 

    I’ve been a fan of Tony’s for a long time, since I took my dad for his 50th bday to see Tony debut on MNF at old Cowboys Stadium in 2006. I’m a bigger fan of him now that he’s pursuing another passion, a passion we both share, golf! With a Lime flavored golf tee in his mouth as he’s giving the classic Tony Romo smile, I’d say he’s a fan of Tas-Tee as well 😉 

    Tony finished 11 over and missed the cut but several other golfers made this track look easy. Anders Albertson started low on Thursday w a 62, highlighted by an ace at the 2nd! Erik Barnes had a double eagle on 18! By Sunday the tournament had taken shape and it looked as if Theo Humphrey would clinch the trophy but it was 12year tour veteran, Tyson Alexander that shot 7 under on Sunday to earn his first victory as a pro. What a moment for Tyson and his family. We could really see how much this meant to him, Ty didn’t stop smiling! Congrats to Tyson and good luck on your golf journey. 

    see y’all April 21-24th 2022!!!

    Time off for Honeymoon

    Time off for Honeymoon

    The perfect wedding (finally!) allowed us to take our first trip as a married couple. We were so blessed to have our entire trip paid for by the contributions to our Honeymoon Fund. Since several members of the Tas-Tee community were contributors to our trip, I felt like recapping some of our most memorable moments for you guys. 

    We started our trip in Sacramento CA, rented a car and drove West to the coast for our first Honeymoon dinner. The sun setting at Bodega Bay was spectacular! 

    Over the next few days, we made our way up the coast on the 101; tasting wines & catching sunsets. Absolutely in heaven driving the switchbacks and meandering highway to each new spot along the coastline. 

    After finishing up the Redwood Forest trails, we headed East to Crater Lake. This was by far the bluest water we’ve ever seen. It honestly looks fake. From there we drove to stay a few nights at Running Y Resort in Oregon.

    An absolute gem in the Oregon landscape, Running Y Ranch Golf Club was perfectly manicured and the greens were very quick 👌 I managed to birdie 2 holes; hole #9 was a severe downhill so my drive rolled out to about 40yds short of the green.. a perfect pitch shot that could’ve gone in became a homie 2footer 👍 The other birdie was a big surprise on the par 5 17th. After hitting the center of the left fairway, my 240yd hybrid came up short in the bunker. On a bit of a slide slope I got too cute and left it in the bunker.. now on a slight uphill lie, I was able to pitch it right where I pictured and it rolled out 15ft right into the cup.. golf is such a beautiful game sometimes 😋

    Really enjoyed the golf course and staff at Running Y Resort. Jaren hooked me up w my round, range balls, golf cart and rental clubs. If we’re ever back n that part of the country, we’ll definitely stop by to play that track again. 

    From Oregon my wife (gotta get used to that) and I headed south to Tahoe, but not before stopping at Lassen Volcanic National Park and Burney Falls. Lassen is fantastic but be prepared for the sulphur smell, it can be overwhelming. Burney Falls was an incredible hidden gem that was as picturesque as it was quiet. Must see if you’re in the area & we both really enjoyed our walk & lunch there.

    Tahoe is the second largest alpine lake in the world and is truly an amazing scene. We heard that if you could pour out the water of Lake Tahoe over Texas, it’s cover the entire state 8in deep. That’s nuts! Plenty of activities for us so of course, I had to find a golf course.

    I chose Old Brockway Golf Course on the North Coast of Lake Tahoe. It’s a tight and well maintained 9 hole track that’s both chill and challenging. Had a lot of fun and even recruited some new Tas-Tee customers. 

    After soaking up the Tahoe sun for several days, it was back to where we started, Sacramento, to head back home. We had the best time together & look forward to many more adventures.

    Thanks again to all who contributed to our honeymoon, we couldn’t have done it without you, thanks!
