2010 PGA Championship.

The hubs and I were able to attend the 2010 PGA Championship at Whistling Straights in Kohler,Wisconsin this weekend.  We were invited to attend through my husband's business, and we attended the event with my hubs parents. It was a sponsored event and the sponsorscompletely spoiled us, and I felt like a queen!  When you are in a port-a-potty that's nicer than your actual bathroom at home, you know this is true, Ha!

It was a very long drive to get there, but with TV's these days in vehicles(and good company:), the time flys by. We stopped in Chicago on the way there to pick-up my mother-in-law, and were able to visit my sis-in-law who just moved to Chicago. I am so excited for her and this new opportunity. She just graduated college with a teaching degree and she is so absolutely fabulous and such a wonderful teacher, spirit and person, they snatched her up for an internship, and I couldn't be happier for her. She looks like she has lived there her whole life, and looks completely at ease.  She's going to have the time of her life. I'm so jealous!  I always wanted to move to Chicago after college.

The weather was absolutely fabulous!  It is the most beautiful golf course I have ever seen. My brothers and father are always talking about how beautiful this course is,  they love to play it!  They were so right!  I grew up in a family of golfers, my dad and brothers are avid golfers and golf fans. There is always golf on at our house, and the coversations is always centered around golf, golfers, scores, or golf courses. My father won the City Golf Title when he was younger, and my brother has been Club Champion at his country club 3 years in a row.  Christmas at our house can be better known as Golfmas. Ha.  So, I was very excited to attend this event. I attended the 2007 Golf Championship in Medinah with the hubs when he was still my fiance, but that course could not hold a candle to this one.

We had a fab tent with food and drinks to fit a wedding reception, and a sky box on the 16th hole with a view of Lake Michigan.  It was so beautiful! 

The two finalists.

I have a pic of us to post before the tournament when we get our internet working. They didn't allow cameras at the tournament.

Happy Monday!
