I recently played golf at TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm. It was a chance to get out and play a course that will be played by the professionals who are on the Web.com tour. When you play golf, you never knew who you might meet. I played with co-worker Ron Thompson, a D.C. lobbyist, Marcus, and a teenager, Tyler Dunmyer, who is playing a different course everyday for a school project. He’s a Quince Orchard student who is also raising money for Junior Achievement, while enjoying those days on the course.
I had a chance to meet former Redskin QB Joe Theisman. I was glad to meet Joe and wondered if I should share my story of where I was on the day his playing career ended. I decided that he’s probably heard too many of those stories over the last 25 plus year. I also met Jason Gore who has played on the PGA tour and will be part of the Mid Atlantic Championship May27th – June 2nd. We happened to have a mutual friend, so I’ll be out following him when the tour comes to town.
If you watched Tiger win this past weekend, you also saw a couple of guys who spent some time on the Web.com tour. Tiger was paired with Casey Wittenburg, who was last years Web.com player of the year and David Lingmerth, last years Mid Atlantic champion, who wound up tied for second.
