Nine of us traveled to Big Cedar for the Legends of Golf Tournament for the second time and the course was gorgeous!  I am getting ahead of myself though.  Thursday night we went to the Worman House for dinner and that is when things got interesting.  My nephew, Bucky, is an avid golfer and during dinner he caught sight of two of the players.  After waiting until they finished dining, Bucky asked for photos and they gladly went for it.

Bucky was in golf heaven!  We also caught the sunset and took an obligatory photo:

On Friday we went to the actual tournament and the weather was perfect.  We followed Gary Player, Jack Nicklaus, Lee Trevino and Mike Hill for the first round.

We also watched Chi Chi Rodriguez and Fuzzy Zoeller in the afternoon.  I never got to see Tom Watson this year because he was on the Buffalo Ridge course the day we went.  Maybe next year!

Bucky also ran into Dude Perfect and got a photo with them.  I did not know who they were but you can watch them on youtube here.

And my favorite which is the sinkhole that developed right after last year’s tournament.  It is impressive!

After a fabulous day of traipsing around the Ozarks, we went back to our lodging with overlooked the pool.

Uncle James grilled pork tenderloins and we put together a feast with decadent deserts that Charlotte brought.  We were happy campers.  A great trip was had by all.

Who wants to go with us next year?
