Torrey Pines Golf Course is magnificently perched on the cliffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean. It is truly a gorgeous course. Just spectacular!
San Diego had a foggy start the morning of February 4, 2015, leading to a 2-plus hour delay (even for Tiger Woods’ tee time) for the prestigious PGA Tour Farmers Insurance Open Preview “Pro-Am” (Professional-Amateur) at Torrey Pines, which officially runs February 5-8.
I was invited to attend a Small Business Summit at the Hilton La Jolla Torrey Pines during the morning. As luck would have it, we received a comp ticket for the tournament, so I decided to venture out. It was a spectacular day! After walking nearly 10,000 steps I am hoping to return again this weekend for more!
I arrived a bit after noon and strolled a bit, had lunch at the concession stand and miraculously was just in time to catch Phil Mickelson finishing the 9th hole on the South course.
Phil Mickelson was kind enough to grace the crowd with his autographs after he finished playing for the day.
Oh…if you attend the Farmers Insurance Open, please heed my advice: WEAR COMFY SHOES! Hydrate! Be respectful of the players. Keep noise to a minimum. Finally, have fun!
