The pros are already arriving in Maui and some are even grinding it out at The Plantation course! The above action shot comes courtesy of friend of WUP and Kapalua’s unofficial mayor Gary Planos. This morning in a practice round for the Hyundai Tournament of Champions, Rocco Mediate aced the par-3 No. 11 with a 7-iron.
Gary and course superintendent Orlando Baraoidan served as witnesses, watching Rocco drive his cart down to retrieve his ball from the cup.
I’m guessing drinks on Rocco tonight. Better yet, wait until tomorrow (naturally, for my arrival)!
