Never been to Arizona before. So there was no way I was passing up the opportunity when a friend of mine said he was doin’ both Troon North courses for a story he was writing and wanted to know if I’d like to tag along. Plus, he set me up to review both Boulder courses (North and South, both of which were absolutely tremendous) for his magazine Avid Golfer. Plus, there was an opportunity to get a credential to the Waste Management Phoenix Open and witness the Greatest Show on Grass; the par-3 16th (something every golfer MUST see).
PLUS, the opportunity to see my best friend who just moved to Tempe. So you know, it was a win-win-win-win-win situation.
A few highlights.
