Tiger Sighting at Pebble Beach

Monday morning dawned cold and foggy. I'm glad we brought lots of layers of clothes, and we wore them!

We took the shuttle from downtown Carmel to the golf course. It was a nice ride on huge buses, and they dropped us off a little north of the clubhouse by the main entrance. There were metal detectors to get in, and I set one off on my first try (cellphone in my pocket). The second time, though, it didn't beep, so I got in with my celphone. I had set it to "silent", but I probably won't take it with me tomorrow.

We checked the practice round schedule - Tiger usually tees off the earliest that he can - today it was at 7 a.m. It was almost 9:30 by the time we got there, so he was almost finished. We did find him on one of the last holes and I got a couple of photos.

Then on the next tee, there was a huge crowd around and I had no view to take a photo. So, I asked this very tall man (5' 5") if he would take one for me.

We walked and walked and walked and were really happy to get back on the bus to go "home" to our little motel. The sun finally came out about 3 p.m.

Lots of other golfers there, of course. Here is Stewart Cink being interviewed.

I look a mess here, but you can see the beautiful view:
