What a night
One of the unique perks about covering a major event like the Masters is getting invited to some of the various corporate parties that are thrown during the week. Mostly these parties are for clients, but we in the media get invited here and there. That's how my housemates and I ended up at the TaylorMade party on Tuesday night.
It was awesome!!!
As we walked through the front door of the house, we were nearly run over by Darren Clarke, wearing what looked like the "puffy" shirt from the old Seinfeld episode. Clarke was on his way out and knowing what we know about Clarke, I'm sure he wasn't headed home for the night.
As we wondered through the house, we saw other TaylorMade pros Scott Verplank, Retief Goosen, Fred Funk and Sergio Garcia.
The food was superb, deep fried turkey, which was unbelievable, and all the fixings. We made out way outside and sat poolside, where we were entertained by a local musician who played songs from some of my favorite artists such as Billy Joel and The Eagles.
Then came the highlight. John Daly joined the musician and proceeded to sing a collection of songs ranging from "Knocking on Heaven's Door," to Sinatra's "New York, New York." He did so while consuming a fair amount of his favorite adult beverages. It was an amazing scene and one will be talking about for years to come.
