2015 PGA U.S. Open

It's been a while so time to catch up with a few posts.  The first is my trip to the PGA U.S. Open with my Father, Dwight and Brad.  It was an awesome 2 days at the Open watching the best players in the world compete.  The course was unbelievable, especially the greens which were like nothing I have ever seen before.  Here are a few pictures from our trip to Seattle.
 
 
Can you tell I'm excited to go to the Open?

After day 1 at the open we went downtown Seattle to a Mariners game.  What a cool stadium.
 
The stadium was very nice. Great place to watch a ball game.
A ball game isn't complete without a spicy kubasa

Day 2 at the open we walked pretty much the entire course, which is a trek!  It was 21 stories from the bottom of the course to the top!!!

A great few days in Seattle.  Couldn't have asked for better company to see my first, of hopefully many, PGA tournaments!
 
Stay tuned for pictures from Penticton
