Good showing, thus far. Good initiative making a new thread (it was overdue).

Good to see Giovanni playing so well. Way to go Illini!

Likewise Illini women; were in third, I think, at their Medinah invitational, 8 shots behind Perdue! I volunteered there Sunday as shuttle driver and Monday as a spotter.

Medinah: what a joint! The members and staff were so friendly and helpful to this peasant. Had full run of that magnificent clubhouse. A wonderful experience.

Funny: I was trying to find my way to men's locker-room area at Medinah clubhouse where I was told I could get a cup of coffee and a mini-Danish. A man asked if he could help me; he showed me the way. He was well-dressed, sharp. And I thought: "What a classy locker-room attendant!" I later found out he is on Medinah's board of directors!

Membership to Medinah is by invitation only. Quoting Groucho Marx, I say: "I wouldn't want to belong to a club that would have someone like me as a member!"

I was a scorer both days and one of the competitors told me that the Medinah course is nicer than the Atlanta Athletic Club course. It was fun watching these women play. I saw some great putting and a couple of off the green chip ins. And the weather was perfect for Monday's and Tuesday's competition rounds.
