Monday Golf and the Eclipse.

Chuck Z

As the eclipse approaches Charleston on Monday and will be departing the U.S. around 230pm, excitement abounds. Approximately 2 million folks have headed into the number on tourist destination increasing our state population by about 40% for this weekend. Due to all the rain lately the golf courses have lost a bit of revenue and hopefully these tourist brought their golf clubs. Our course has a message on our sign at the entrance inviting guests to join us on Monday to watch the eclipse because the course will close during the event. I saw an abundance of approved glasses on the general manager's desk for the event. Our senior men's group will be there Monday morning for our normal blitz. Should I stay or come back home and go to the beach to watch this spectacular event as it leave the U.S. Will I balls fly farther as the event approaches? There are a lot of myths that go along with an eclipse. Like dragons and dogs swallowing the sun and the spitting it back out. Another beautiful day in Charleston, SC. Where ever you are along the path, enjoy the event and your day.

    I am a teacher of special needs students and our high school science department has provided our student body with glasses. We will be viewing from the football field. Only about 85% coverage here in Northern VA, but will be interesting to say the least.

    Back at home from a morning round and was sitting in my backyard with my wife as we went into Totality. Totality for us only lasted a little less than two minutes, but it was very cool to say the least.

    Came on home and my wife and I watched the black out from our front yard. Thought I would share some photos for those who did not get to experience the total blackout. I stopped before the sun became too bright. I still believe in digital cameras. Kinda cool. Cheers, Chuck.....

    Schools were out here today. The total eclipse would occur during the time schools would let out. With all the additional traffic in the area they did not want any issue with the buses getting the kids home on time.

    I played in Plymouth when it was 60% covered. Very cool round. We brought a piece of welders glass to look at it.
