PGA Championship Checklist

Disclosure: Authored by Kurt

As the PGA Championship is fast approaching in Sheboygan, Wisconsin at Whistling Straits. I felt it was only fair to run down my checklist for the event. As many of you that listen to Jim Rome, you will understand; as this is something similar to “USC Fan” or “Ohio State Fan” game day checklist.

No specific order:
1. Print Governor Jim Doyle’s PGA remarks from 2004 and see if his 2010 remarks are the same.
2. Check the Sheboygan County Highway Department Website for updated construction information.
3. Read the Wisconsin State Patrol News Release from August 2nd, 2010.
4. Check the local weather at Whistling Straits via IPS MeteoStar or the National Weather Service.
5. Drive down the on ramp to I-43 at Rowe Road to experience a waste of $2 millions if they decide to only have it open for 10 days every PGA Championship at Whistling Straits.
6. Read the PGA Championship Spectator Guide and play close attention to prohibited items… Tweeter is a no go folks!
7. Download the PGA Championship App for the IPhone and try to sneak it past security. Good Luck!
8. Take my Tiger Wood’s Jersey Polo Shirt out of the closet.
9. Iron my Tiger Wood’s Jersey Polo Shirt.
10. Put new batteries in the digital camera to take as many pictures as I can during the practice rounds.
11. Pack for 10 days of clothing, however only wear 4 outfit’s the whole time.
12. Check the Wisconsin State Fair Website or Brewers game options against the Diamondbacks for Plan B.
13. Lock all the doors to my house as I make the road trip to the PGA Championship.
14. Flip a coin to see which friend will drive the first leg of the trip.
15. As you leave Illinois entering the great state of Wisconsin, when the toll booth ladies says, “Thank you”, you reply, “No Thank you” as you pretend to reach for something on the ground.
16. Read a list of 100 new facts about the State of Wisconsin in the past two years.
17. Argue that “Eau Claire,Wisconsin” is the 58th State because it was said by the leader of the free world.
18. Stop at Kopp’s Frozen Custard in Milwaukee for lunch and apologize for someones comment’s made a few months ago.
19. Discuss about taking the “Train to Nowhere” for the next road trip and then realize how much of a bad idea it is.
20. Arrive at hotel the night before the practice rounds and head downtown to Sheboygan to enjoy Michigan Ave.
21. Eat a famous Johnsonville Brat and suggest to official’s to move the “Pretzel Bender” to the first Monday of the PGA Championship vic the Monday after the 4th of July.
21. Arrive back at hotel at 0100 in the morning and set the alarm for 0600 to attend the first tee off at 0700.
22. Bring a lawn chair but not the over sized chairs because they are prohibited.
23. Convince to out of state’er that you can milk a bull.
24. Ask official’s if the President of the United States is coming since the Oil is capped in the Gulf. He told us he wouldn’t rest until it was.
25. Conclude the road trip and insist that you saw Tiger Woods in the bathroom. Then tell them and all your friends, you “kicked his ass”.

While I know this list could go on and on; it had to come to a end sooner or later.

  • Hey, the PGA motto should be “Golf like you mean it” to echo that very meaningful new Wisconsin state motto someone thought up that I think they ending up dropping anyhow: “Live like you mean it.” No, wait, the PGA one should really be “Watch others golf like they mean it.” And they do mean it with all the perks, money & fame in play.

    Some of us in the Sheboygan area “disappear like we mean it” during PGA week to avoid the golfish crowds and especially, traffic. But we hope golf-lovers have fun hitting a hole in one into our local economy. (:
