Ft. Bragg Blackhawk last week at Sedgefield

The chopper was rehearsing for a dramatic appearance last week to kick off the golf championship in Greensboro at Sedgefield C.C. The Wyndham, specifically "AIG", invited soldiers from Fort Bragg out to the golf tournament... Bad weather canceled the chopper, but some of us enjoyed watching the practice runs anyhow.

Sedgefield Country Club as the MetLife Blimp Flies

Downtown Greensboro Postcard

"Snoopy 2" the MetLife blimp took me for a ride...

The King of Racing Meets the King of Swing

Local resident and national icon Richard Petty appeared with Wake Forest Alum and golfing legend Arnold Palmer to "Tee Off" the Wyndham Championship in Greensboro recently. Petty graciously deferred the opening remarks to Palmer while King Richard was content to (in his words) "draft".

Vijay Singh came to Sedgefield last week...

He's one of the top 5 golfers in the world and it was fun to watch him at the Wyndham although he was not -ugh....up to par.
