CHASKA, Minn. — This picture spoke a thousand words to me yesterday. Tiger Woods, one of the 2016 Vice-Captains for the USA Ryder Cup team, walking ahead of his designated foursome of U.S. players during their practice round.

Each Vice Captain was assigned to a group to observe, advise and guide the group through the masses of fans and gentle rolling mounds on the greens. This Tiger was saucy, confident, and even daring you to confront his “guys.” He was protective yet announcing their arrival at each tee.

Tuesday was warm up day at the Ryder Cup, not only for the players but for fans. The 24 players, 12 representing the USA and 12 from “across the pond,” practiced their skills with captains, vice-captains, and swing coaches watching their every move.

The Iron Horse Half-Marathon is always one of my favorite events.

One of my favorite running events every year is the Iron Horse Half-Marathon in Midway. It’s a scenic course — with more than enough hills — but the community and race officials do such a great job that even when I am questioning my sanity, I never leave disappointed.

Watching horses run along fence rows as runners go by is inspiring. This year’s even is Oct. 16 and since I always see many, many UK fans during the 13.1-miles, here is some pre-race info for this event two days after Big Blue Madness.

J.B. Holmes named to Ryder Cup team

U.S. Ryder Cup captain Davis Love III has chosen Rickie Fowler, J.B. Holmes and Matt Kuchar for three of his four picks for the upcoming showdown with Europe at Hazeltine.

Love announced his choices on Monday, a day after the BMW Championship.

Holmes finished 10th in the Ryder Cup standings and is one of the few active Americans to have never lost in the event. He played at Valhalla in 2008, when he went 2-0-1.

My friends, family and acquaintances get excited the minute football starts. They love the fall, the hype, the commercials, the pregame, band, cheerleaders, fantasy football, tailgating, outside weather, and noises associated with football. Those folks are understandable; I have no criticism of their misplaced excitement.

But, for me, the announcement of football, smell of new pumpkin spice cupcakes, pumpkin lattes, and a new crispness in the air means only one thing – it won’t be long before I get my invite to the Women’s Clinic. I associate the smells of fall with the upcoming email for the Women’s Clinic that I have been awaiting since August. When it arrives, I have emailed my daughters, my new extended family, and made my reservations within 30 minutes.
