Have you ever wanted to shoot a PGA golf tournament? Unfortunately only those with a press can do so. However we can go to the Memorial Tournament practice round and Pro-Am and shoot our little hearts out. See lots of famous golfers and maybe some infamous golfers too. Even if you don’t follow golf, it’s a great way to view the magnificent course. I’m sure we can’t rent carts so be sure to wear comfortable shoes, lots of walking involved. Also golf course appropriate attire is required. And as always, the weather is a crap shoot!

Sounds like fun. Would you like to pick a day where you can be the “host”. This would involve gathering all the information about when, start time, stop time, directions, etc. Put all of that here, as a response to this thread and then I can add it as an event on the COPS Meetup.com schedule. Maybe the weather forecast might help pick a day? It is the Memorial Tournament after all…we will be dodging raindrops.
