Keating has fun in Orlando
Thursday, August 6, 2009
ST. LOUIS — I’ve lived in Orlando for close to two years and have yet to go to Disney World, Universal, or Sea World.
Australian Stacey Keating played a few events in the United Kingdom, and before she headed to the U.S. Women’s Open (as a spectator), Keating had four or five days to kill before heading to Saucon Valley.
She decided to take a little detour to Orlando and do the whole “Disney thing,” as she called it. Keating, along with two other Australian teammates, spent two days at Disney, and then added another bonus to the trip.
Keating and the others managed to get on at Bay Hill and then took a trip around the corner to Tiger’s place over at Isleworth. They decided to play the Tiger tees (farthest back) and struggled to break 85.
“We hit maybe one iron into a par 4,” she said.
As for how she got on at Bay Hill, Keating said she had written a letter to them saying she would wait three weeks at the gates to meet Arnold Palmer. When that didn’t work, she called them and managed to get on the venerable track. No Arnie, though.
Seems there are a lot of things I’m missing out on.
