Megan was at work and saw an email that read “the first to respond to this email gets a pair of tickets to the PGA Championship”. She responded and to her surprise she won. It was a pair of upgraded “Wanamaker” tickets, giving us access to a large and private air conditioned tent with a bar and restaurants along with parking passes for “Lot A”. She called me at work and gave me the news. It was for the upcoming morning and I wasn’t able to get the whole day off but would be able to go for at least half of the day.
The next morning we got up super early and headed to Johns Creek, GA…a short 10 minute drive from our place. The traffic was dense and congested as we got closer and we followed signs to “Lot A”…which was practically across the street from the Atlanta Athletic Club.
Once we parked we noticed that everyone was loading into coach buses that shuttled us directly there. Nice! We took the shuttle to the tournament and made it in just in time to see some big time golfers teeing off – Phil Mickelson and Bubba Watson.
After them it was Tiger Woods. We followed them around for a few holes and then walked around for a while. More khaki shirts and polo shirts than we had ever seen in one place!
