The real thing

FARMINGDALE, N.Y. – Walked a few holes with the wife of a player, who told me that she and a half dozen PGA Tour wives took the train to New York City for some shopping while their hubbies practiced earlier in the week.

Having lost a few hours of my life escorting a lady or two shopping in the Big Apple, I asked if they had hit up Canal Street to stock up on fake Coach, Prada and designer purses. It’s almost a female rite of passage.

“No,” she said, “but there were some who wanted to go buy the real thing.”

Forgot my audience.
