The Golf Pics

I had a blast on Wednesday golfing! It was the 8th Annual Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Tournament...and my 3rd time golfing in it. 2 years ago my Mother-in-Law was diagnosed with breast cancer at the same time that I just got back into golfing. So I played the tourney for her. That year I won "best dressed in pink". I know I am not going to win for best golf played, although my team shot a low 78 this year! Last year I took second for best dressed...this year I was back with a vengeance.
I cut the crotch off of some little girls tights and wore them as leggings. Found a shirt to match and bought some pink hair-dye spray, said a prayer that it would come out and hit the course. Some people were surprised by my look, but not many were all that shocked that I would do something like this. We ended up having over 50 golfers and raised over $2,000. Not bad hey?
My teammates were: Bea, Wanda and Carol. We hit the front nine hard and shot a 38. We were hot and tired so we grabbed a drink and hit the back nine and fell apart! Shot a 40. And if you are not familiar with our course, the back nine is easier and has a lower par. But when we teed off on the first hole we said we weren't here to win, we were here to have a great time, laugh and raise money. And we accomplished all of the above.
Another team: Marcia, Punky, Sharon, (Survivors) Terri and Marlene. Punky and Martha do a great job organizing this event and it gets bigger and better every year.
Anybody got any ideas for next year? I need to hang on to my title :)
