My first press coverage!

The new phone book's here, the new phone book's here!

Okay, it's not, but I feel a little like Navin R. Johnson in one of my favorite movies, The Jerk, when the new phone book arrived. I'm somebody now!

I haven't received my actual copy in the mail yet, but the online version is up of the latest Fore magazine, the SCGA's bi-monthly publication. All members of this regional association receive the magazine as part of their membership fees.

This issue features yours truly because of my recent performance at the SCGA Tournament of Club Champions. That's right! My name appears several times starting on page 10 and my picture even shows up on page 12. They might have had a more interesting story if they'd have known I only started playing golf a little over a year before that tournament. Okay, if you want to get technical, it was more of a mention than a story anyway. It's not like they interviewed me or did any research.

My aces also made the book in the section called "sweet shots" on page 45. I don't know why there's a separate section for Lady Aces. Do we play a different sport?

So there it is. I've gotten my first press coverage in the golf world, or at least the golf region. Is that as far as I can go or will there be more in the future? I definitely don't want to stop there. Stay tuned... :) Well, now that I'm "somebody," at least I know better than to hide behind soda machines (there's cans in there, too!)

Next post.

Thanks, Eddie.
Yeah, I guess I'll have to do something with it. I don't know if it'll be the whole magazine or cut out the article pages to frame them or what.
Thanks for the vote of confidence. I still have a long way to go before I'm playing without a handicap like those folks on TV.
