Happy Father's Day Dads

US Open weekend is big in a lot of ways.  The best players in the world gather at an extremely severe golf course trying to win one of the most coveted trophies in all of sport.  The USGA always sets up the course so pars are extremely good.  Birdies are few and far between.  And it's all about making a bunch of par putts from 8-10 feet to save your round.

And it usually happens on Father's Day weekend.

This is the weekend I always got phone calls from my Dad.  His commentary was always better than any of these guys on the Golf Channel or NBC.  He would bring up things these guys wouldn't even think about.   It's a perspective that was always one of a kind, just like my Dad.

It's a perspective that's definitely missed.

Happy Father's Day to you and yours.
