I used to think golf was the most boring sport to watch on television. That was before I owned my own set of golf clubs and developed an appreciation for the sport. Now I happily spend days like yesterday watching The Masters and rooting for Bubba.
I’ve never been to a golf tournament and it always looks like such an interesting process when I watch it on TV. I mean, would I want to stay in one place? Follow a favorite from hole to hole? What is it like? Then this morning’s inbox came with information on a perfect way to find out – the Walmart Northwest Arkansas Championship, the official LPGA Tour event, returns to Pinnacle Country Club in Rogers June 25-July 1 and brings the world’s best female golfers to the area.
