    Pairings

    John,

    In case you're not familiar -- there is a Monday qualifier where there are 4 spots open. So, I'm thinking that the final pairings for rounds 1 and 2 may not be posted until after the qualifier...

    There may be something in the newspaper ---

    Cheers,
    Thanks for the screen-time.

    The starting/pairing times are available Wednesday at www.cncanadianwomensopen.com and for Saturday and Sunday they will be posted 1 hour after the conclusion of Friday's round.

    Got an e-mail through my Sens account manager for deluxe Ottawa Senators suite passes on the balcony overlooking the 9th green and 15th hole par-3.

    However, its $525, per day (for 2 people)!

    I got my hands on Champions club tickets for saturday and have access to the 18th fairway sky box. Really looking forward to it. Anybody else have these tickets?

    I just got back from the practice round and it was pretty dead there with the exception of the little crowd following Wie, and the people gathered around the putting green and driving range.

    Those girls don't miss many fairways. Lots of smooth swings out there.

    You left early. It was rammed for Sorenstam. People were getting trampled.

    She must have kept her entrance rather low key, because there weren't more than 20-30 people at the putting green while she was practicing. There were a few more back at the Range later on when she was warming up.

    There were "many more" than 20-30 around the putting green when Annika was there........even more people arrived when Paula joined her on the green.
    Did you see the mob scene when Annika was trying to leave the putting area for the practice range.......There had to be at least 30 people within 15 feet of her all surrounding her and holding out hats, programs.........Paula even stopped putting, turned around and watched the mob scene for about 30 seconds......

    Was very suprised that many people either left or did not know Annika was teeing off #1 about an hour later. It was a good sized crowd, but I expected to see a much larger crowd at the first tee.

    I had the third green staked out and there were only 40 or so following her. But it was pretty late so I assume that she ended up collecting just about everyone along the course on her way. She was nice, and was signing stuff. Her only request was that we keep moving towards the next tee box.

    I saw people buying tickets at the gate. Do not think there is any problem of a sellout.

    anyone know the best places to watch the action? I have access to the skybox on the 18th fairway but I'd rather have a close up view of them putting and teeing off.

    The best place to see if you want close up action is to follow the golfers you're interested in. There is a set of stands set up on the first tee, but they are first come first serve, so I imagine they will be filled up by 7:30. Same goes for around the 18th and other locations.

    Can I sneak a liitle point and shoot digital camera in with me this weekend or are these forbidden? The tickets say no cameras, but all tickets say that.

    No cameras at all on the weekend. Cameras are only allowed on the Pro-Am and practice round days.

    They have enough volunteers that it would be confiscated if you were seen with it and security at the front gate as well.

    Was with Se Ri Pak group at Pro am as standard bearer this AM.
    What a ball striker! bit of a balky putter today,despite that I think she managed to finish 2 or 3 under. Incredibly pleasant lady, very engaged with partners and gracious with anyone wanting an autograph or photo.

    I remember when the LPGA was in town in 1994 at the same course. During the practice round we were getting some autographs. It wasn't busy but some of the big names at the time were hard to get to - Laura Davies, Nancy Lopez, Meg Mallon, Beth Daniel, Dawn Coe. But there was this tiny girl that nobody was paying attention to so I told my buddy I was going to go over and talk to her. His reply was something like "Why bother, we don't even know who she is". I just felt sorry for her. Nobody knew Annika back then before she had won a tournament. She was very polite and friendly and was happy to sign my program. It's now framed on my wall and I'll always have great memories of that tournament.

    No problem...I noticed people's cell phones were being taken away from them at the gate yesterday. That's why I figured I'd mention it.

    Assuming they keep to the standard bearer schedule, you'll be following me as well big guy.

    I pulled the shift with Se Ri Pak and Lorena Ochoa.
    Not fat anymore. Need to get better at golf now!

    He's one lucky dude for sure.. I got Helen Alfredsson's group... very nice lady, and chatty with the group. She signed my Canada hockey cap and even mentioned they are the second best team in the world next to Sweden!!

    Folks, if you even has an opportunity to volunteer or caddy for the pro tournamens in the future. Do it!! Being inside the rope was an amazing experience
