On Tuesday I popped by Paramount CC, where I am very fortunate to be an unofficial honorary member, in Rockland County, NY, about an hour from my ‘hood in NYC, to work on my short game and putting because it’s not like I didn’t do enough of that between 1995 and 2005! No, it’s freaking cold af, and on a related note, I was hoping for another Indian Summer, but I have a feeling we’re in for a particularly brutal winter.
I always love hanging out and catching up with two of my favorite people Steve Scott, the head pro (and yes, it is *the* dude that almost beat Tiger Woods in the 1996 U.S. Amateur at Pumpkin Ridge), and Brian Chapin, superintendent and all-around awesome human at Paramount CC — an A.W. Tillinghast gem that recently went through a restoration. I mean, SO MUCH that I drove (with pseudo-blurry vision post-PRK surgery) to see them and record the pod in person, and we rocked out and had a GOLF POD PARTY! As you’d imagine, it was off the heezy.
Steve provided astute insight and advice on folding sweaters, and Brian shared revolutionary tips on maintaining cart path edges.
Parting thought: One of the major reasons I love Paramount — not just because it’s a fun and challenging course kept in immaculate conditions — is the people. 🏌🏻♀️🏌🏻♀️🏌️🏌️⛳️⛳️✌️
