Yesterday, we went to 9:30 mass at The Basilica Church of Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary. I was baptized in this church back in 2003. It is very beautiful and full of stained glass windows and murals.
Then in the afternoon we watched the singles matches. First we watched them on No. 1 and then walked up to the top of the course on No. 3 which is called The Alps and you can sit and watch the shots come in then watch them play onto No. 4 hole – The Redan.
After watching a number of matches here, we walked over to No. 6 and sat in the grandstand watching the players hit into the short par 3. One of the American players named Max Homa, had a hole in one just after we left the grandstand but we could hear the shouts and watched him take the ball out of the hole.
We then followed the first tee time of Bobby Wyatt (USA) versus Neil Raymond (GB&I) down the 14th hole since he was 3 Up and would win his point if he won this hole, which he did.
We then went to the buses to go back home since the USA was winning the other matches and we didn’t want to get into long bus lines. On the way up the hill to the 16th green I helped a man in a disability scooter who was having trouble going up the hill. I had to push him all the way to the tent where they were stored. His name was Eric O’Brien and he lives in Dublin and Palm Beach.
Now I am getting ready to fly home tomorrow. Tonight is my Mom and Dad’s 13 wedding anniversary and we are going out to eat dinner at The Plaza Cafe.
This is Frederick and I can’t wait to go back to school and see my friends.
