Carolinas Mid-Amateur

I am coming to you live from the Hampton Inn in Morganton, NC. They have free wireless internet access, a nice plus. They are also located near Mimosa Hills, host of the Carolinas Mid-Amateur for the next three days.

I played a practice round this afternoon and really enjoyed the course. It is a classic Donald Ross design recently restored by Kris Spence of Greensboro. The conditioning of the course is a bit suspect, though. The greens have not recovered from aerification two weeks ago and the fairways are not cut very short.

As the saying goes, the conditions will be the same for everyone. But we all hope the conditions are as good as possible for everyone.

This tournament is the championship for North and South Carolina for amateur golfers aged 30 and over. Needless to say, the competition is keen and I am pleased to have qualified for the tournament. Now I have to go out and prove I belong here.
