Last year, we had a great opportunity to work with Jerry O’Neil, and his radio show, for their Monday After the Majors events. We were a secondary sponsor for the events. After the US Open, we were disappointed that they didn’t have any more events as Jerry was taken off the air in some poor business decisions.
Jerry is back on the radio in Orlando and working with the Shot Doctor on the afternoon drive time show on 96.9 The Game an iHeart Radio Station and they have brought back the Monday After events at Celebration Golf Club! I got in touch with Jerry and he was excited about having us back! Along with donating the Precise Golf Waterproof Stand bag we donated koozies for everyone playing.
I played with my dad as my partner in a 2 man scramble event. We were paired up with another one of the sponsors and the team from Jenkins Hyundai from Leesburg, FL. We had a lot of fun with these guys as they were easy to play golf with. We had a lot of laughs.
My dad and I birdied 3 of the first 4 holes to get off to a great start. My dad hit his approach shot to a foot on 1. I chipped in on 2 and on 4 we were in the greenside bunker in 2 and made up and down. We then got on the par train (choo choo) and thought we jumped off that on 14 when I made a 40 foot birdie putt only to be derailed with a bogey on 15.
After 3 more pars we were in with a -3 score of 69. We did tie for 8th with that score but knew we left a few too many out there to bring home the trophies.
After golf, there was a great Masters themed luncheon that included Pimento Cheese sandwiches that everyone enjoyed. There were also some drink specials that we all enjoyed.
Dads Say So, even though we didn’t win we had an awesome time. Any time I get to tee it up with my dad as my partner is an awesome time. For less than $80 a person we had golf, range balls, breakfast, lunch and everyone won a raffle prize. Jerry and Shot will be doing 4 more events this year with the next one coming on Monday, May 14th after The Players. We know we will be there and you should be there too.
