Magical Torrey Pines

I have spent a lot of my free time this July playing golf with Max and his friends. I can't believe how strong Max's game is despite hardly playing golf this year until July.

During the week, Max has been waking up early to go to Torrey Pines to play the south course twice a day. He walks on as a single and has had no problem.

The south course is fantastic but a little too much pain for my game.

Today we played the north course which has been rejiggered by Tom Weiskopf. I think it's fantastic and by the time Max finished today, he agreed. The stretch of holes 14-16 are really magical along the Pacific.

Here is a shot of what the approach shot looks like on 10 (it used to be the first hole):

Here is Max warning up on the 16th tee:

It is amazing what can be done with the iPhone camera as an aside. Here is a video I shot of Max hitting a wedge into 13:

Here is the putt for birdie:

And here is his drive off 16 with our new friends we made today goofing off in the background.

I'm glad I finally took advantage of the amazing Torrey Pines public facility in La Jolla.
