  1. I saw this on the local news: It's heart breaking. OREM, Utah (AP/Meredith) — Authorities say a 6-year-old Utah girl has died after her father accidentally hit her with a golf ball. Police say the ball struck the girl in the back of the head on Monday morning, while the father and daughter were golfing at Sleepy Ridge Golf Course in Orem. The ball collided with the base of her neck. Lt. Trent Colledge with the Orem Police Department says she was flown to a hospital in Salt Lake City in critical condition. She died from her injuries later that evening. Family members later identified the girl as Aria Hill. A GoFundMe page has raised more than $11,000 to cover her funeral expenses. "We are so grateful for all the love, support, and prayers made in our behalf during this difficult time," a statement on the page reads. "We've truly felt comforted. Aria was the sassiest girl in the world. She was silly, spunky, creative, unique, and so so full of love for everyone she came in contact with. There is a huge hole in our hearts that she has taken with her back to Heaven...Fly high my little angel" Police are investigating but are not planning to pursue charges because it appears to have been a tragic accident.
  2. Did you play in the tournament? I don't play in tournaments but played Leslie Park back in June. Maybe the stars will align and we can get a Michigan golf meetup again.
  3. Flint golfer makes LPGA Tour ‘debut’ caddying for Tiger Woods’ niece Updated Jul 17, 12:23 PM; Posted Jul 17, 7:07 AM Willie Mack III of Flint tied for third in last month's Michigan Open. 1 By Brendan Savage | bsavage@mlive.com FLINT, MI -- Willie Mack III of Flint is going to make his LPGA Tour debut this week. LPGA Tour? Yup, Mack will be between the ropes for the Dow Great Lakes Bay Invitational in Midland but he won’t be swinging a club. Instead, he’ll be serving as a caddie for Cheyenne Woods, a buddy from the days when both were playing on the junior golf circuits around the country. Woods, the niece of Tiger Woods, is among the 144 players who will compete in the first team event in LPGA history. She’ll be playing with former Wake Forest teammate Olafia Kristinsdottir when the event begins today at Midland Country Club. Grand Blanc's Willie Mack III qualifies to play on PGA Tour Latinoamerica Mack shot 69-72-70-73--284 at the qualifying tournament in Bogota, Columbia. Woods was in need of a caddie this week and knowing that Mack was from nearby Flint, she texted him to see if he was interested in looping for her. Mack was happy to help and will be carrying a bag for the first time since doing it for fellow Flint pro Shasta Averyhardt -- who is also good friends with Woods -- several years ago during a Monday qualifier. “I think (Woods has) been going through caddies, local caddies, so it’s probably good to have somebody that she’s friends with to keep her loose,” Mack said Tuesday night. "I’m just there for whenever she needs some help. “We know how to play golf. Whenever (she) needs some help, you can chime in and help out.” Mack, who said he played Midland CC while in high school, is free this week because he's between events on his schedule. The 2011 Michigan Amateur champion has been playing various mini-tours and other events around the country while pursuing his dream of making it to the PGA Tour. He tied for third in last month's Michigan Open after holding the second-round lead and has been a regular on the Advocates Pro Golf Association Tour, where his four top-10 finishes include a victory in the Tampa tournament back in March. The only time he missed the top 10 on the APGA this year was when he finished 15th in Scottsdale. “There are two events left,” Mack said. "The money leader on the tour gets $20,000 at the end of the year, Q School paid for and an exemption to (the PGA Tour event at) Rivieria. "I was first going into the last event that we played in Dallas. I came in seventh and moved down to second place by only by 56 points or so. It's pretty close." After next week’s event in Chicago, Mack will head to the APGA Tour Championship Aug. 19-20 in Atlanta. But before trying to earn that free trip to the PGA Tour Qualifying tournament, he’ll tee it up in the Michigan PGA’s Tournament of Champions July 29-31 at Boyne Falls. If he doesn’t win the trip to Q School, Mack said he might try and instead qualify for the Korn Ferry Tour -- formerly the Web.com Tour -- or make a run at playing on the European PGA Tour. Grand Blanc pro golfer escapes with his life, and clubs, from burning car Willie Mack III is thankful to be alive. Mack said he’s been to Q School "five or six times: and admits it’s been frustrating at times not getting a chance to realize his dream and play on the world’s best circuit. But at the same time, “a lot of people have tried way more times than me and get through on the their 10th, 11th try,” he said. One good thing is he's been making enough money in the various tournaments to finance his career and is encouraged by the way he's been playing since putting a new set of irons into his bag two months ago. “I’ve been playing pretty good since I got those,” he said. “I was having club problems for two years and finally got some clubs that I can rely on and trust. Hopefully that brings some better luck this year.”
  4. Hope you see this...Congrats on your 2019 T9 finish at Leslie Park.

  6. Nice round. Nice way to execute. Congrats. I really enjoyed playing Greystone last year. It was one of my better rounds. I believe they have one of the best finishing holes in 16, 17 and 18 of any course I've played. We have another Group Golfer voucher to play it again this year. I'm looking forward to it.
  7. Before I retired from GM, we were allowed 5 sick days per year which did not need a reason/excuse for an absence. If you were not coming to work, it was mandatory that the hotline was notified at least 30 minutes before the start of the shift or the sick day was not approved. For those 5 days, you didn't need an excuse but the hotline forced you to enter a code. Our vacation time was prorated and you needed 20 years seniority to get four weeks vacation. Vacation that was not pre-approved was not permitted.
  8. Keep up the great work. It's exciting to see your improvement. Congratulations.
  9. Stay in that place down south!
