Oh what a day! First of all, the Honda Classic took place over the weekend. This event brings the world’s best PGA Tour golfers to (normally) sunny Palm Beach Gardens, Florida – but Saturday’s rains pushed Sunday’s starting times, and the tournament ran over into Monday. Guess what happens then… free golf! Monday’s golf was free to all attendees, and even free preferred parking! I managed to make it up to the PGA National Championship Course to catch Phil Mickelson finish his round, and then the thrilling Harrington-Benson playoff!
PGA rules forbid photography and video recording during tournament play, but I managed to snap a couple photos of the 18th hole – gorgeous day, huh?
After a wonderful day of golf, Susan and I decided to take advantage of a great happy hour at Morton’s Steakhouse with Meredith & Danielle. They call it the Power Hour, with discounts on beer, wine, cocktails (Mortinis), and a nice selection of Bar Bites. First, we had a couple cocktails – a pinot noir for her, a dirty martini with bleu cheese olives for me:
And then to the food. We decided on the Filet Mignon Trio, served with Sauce Au Poivre, Béarnaise and Blue Cheese Butter. Also the Crab, Spinach, & Artichoke Dip!
