It’s letting your kids cheer on some of the best golfers in the world and write them notes they’ll actually find in their lockers.

It’s making sure you bring the appropriate shoes to walk with the players—and plenty of water. It’s going to be hot, and besides, all that cheering will leave your throat extremely parched. coloradoavidgo lf e r.c o m
