One of the greatest gifts any snowbound golfer can receive is updates from friends on a golfing vacation. I realize many of you may not think this is such a great thing, but in my case, I am grateful for any updates on golfing trips; especially when they send pictures.
Rick and Karen are currently in the Palm Springs area enjoying 2 weeks of golfing in the sun. Rick is a golfing buddy of mine and we hit the links many times over the short northern Canadian season. I appreciate their efforts to share their golfing adventure. To add the icing on the cake for their trip, the patio of their lodgings faces the third hole of the Indian Springs Golf Club!
To add more excitement to their amazing trip, they are attending the final round of the PGA CareerBuilder event at La Quinta, CA. They will walk the course with some golfing greats like Phil Mickelson and really get to see how good professional golfers really are. I hope they take a few pictures and maybe get an autograph or two. Regardless, their experience should be amazing!
Thanks Rick and Karen for thinking of me and sending a picture of a golf course without snow. Enjoy the rest of your trip and I look forward to hearing about all the birdies!

I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!
