Thanks to 72strokes’s Derek Franks for capturing my drive on No. 10 4 (I think? Maybe it was No. 13?) at The Plantation Course on Wednesday. FYI, I was using other playing partner Mike Ferguson’s TaylorMade Burner driver, which, for some reason, I can’t seem to miss — even when I make poor contact, it still goes long and straight (and considering the way I was striking the ball yesterday…wow). It’s really incredible.

Great balance, though! Actually, I’m pretty sure that was the wind almost blowing me over.

Otherwise, I had a pretty terrible ballstriking day on my way to a 79. Oh, I did it! I broke 80 with an asterisk because it sure didn’t feel like a 79. (My clubs almost ended up in the ravine on 17 — no, not really, but it was pure comedy watching us all putt.)

That driver is definitely on my wish list.

Me teeing off on No. 5 at The Plantation Course

First of all, a big thanks to Merf and Conor for taking care of the blog while I’ve been on vacation (not to mention Kapalua’s Gary Planos for being the greatest host ever). You all, along with the readers, are a huge part of the WUP team. Please join me in giving them a vintage-Tiger golf ovation.

Anyway, I meant to post this video blog on Wednesday evening, but I was so exhausted that I passed out at 8:30. It must be all the golf. You know, the walk from the golf cart to my ball is pretty grueling. No, seriously, though, this is the most rounds of golf I’ve played in a week since 2004 (as of Thursday, 5 1/2 rounds — played 27 holes on Wednesday). I’m such an athlete! So, on Wednesday, I teed it up at The Plantation Course (again) with my new friends, fellow golf blogger Derek Franks (72strokes.com) and Mike Ferguson (who happens to live in Brooklyn, just across the bridge from me!), who is on his honeymoon (everyone, congratulate Mike! And see, I told you guys I was going on vacation with me, myself and honeymooners — oh, and apparently 500 FedEx employees; no wonder FedEx can afford to sponsor the $10 million FedEx Cup).
