57. You play two rounds at the fantastic new course in Huntsville on Sunday afternoon, foregoing any chance of getting home Sunday night (Too many moose in the park after dark).

Monday morning, You get up at 430 am and drive for 4 hours to make a 9 o’clock meeting with two minutes to spare.

You daydream through the meeting and most of the day because all you can think about is playing JCP's Triple Crown at 5…
