So...the actual event. My coworker received an invite from one of the corporate sponsors which equals a tent filled with free food and drinks all day and great seating on the 17th hole. Sure, I walked around a bit, but didn't stray too far. Beautiful sunny day, sitting near a pond, chowing on delicious chocolate mousse cake and watching the Pro-Am go by - totally worth not going into the office. And since it's Chinese New Year and work was slow....yeah. That worked out well!
George Lopez played in the Pro-Am, I guess he does most years. We caught him putting while Luke Wilson looked on. Sadly, I missed Josh Duhamel. Oh well...... the celeb team ended up winning that day. What a life.
Below is the infamous 16th hole, probably the loudest hole of any course in the country. This year it's fully enclosed by seating, so there's no escaping the noise.
Hottest player in the tournament, Camilo Villegas.
After the day wrapped up, we grabbed our VIP passes and headed to the after party at the Birds Nest. More free food, drinks, bands, DJs and amazing people-watching that goes on til all hours of the night. We called it a day around 10pm. I'm already scheming for next year, cause it's totally awesome. And maybe I'll work on my golf game now.....this could be good.
