Delo’s Divots: Don’t miss chance of a lifetime and help young athletes, too

DeLo's Divots: 'See your knuckles' to achieve the proper grip

You may have missed Willie Mays play baseball, Joe Montana on
the gridiron or Michael Jordan on the basketball court. But don’t
miss your chance to see Tiger Woods, arguably the best golfer of
our time, playing in our own backyard at CordeValle during the
Frys.com Open Oct.3-9.
You may have missed Willie Mays play baseball, Joe Montana on the gridiron or Michael Jordan on the basketball court. But don’t miss your chance to see Tiger Woods, arguably the best golfer of our time, playing in our own backyard at CordeValle during the Frys.com Open Oct.3-9.

Sure you can say, ‘I’ll see him at the U.S. Open at Olympic Club in San Francisco next summer.’ Yeah, you can, from two fairways over, behind a tree and over the fat guy with the wide-brimmed hat.

Remember, CordeValle’s use permit will only allow for 15,000 tickets per day. You will be close enough to see him sweat, hear the ball spin of his clubface when he hits his stinger 2-irons and be able to hear his ball fall in the cup.

It is kind of like having a private concert with the Rolling Stones on your back patio. Once in a lifetime.

And to make this even better, you can buy tickets and help out our local young athletes as well.

Go to frysopen.com/tickets. Once you choose which day, or days, to attend and how many tickets you want, go to the checkout and enter a Partner Code from the drop down list. Enter Gilroy Golf Course and I will donate 25 percent to the Gilroy and Christopher high school golf programs. There is also a Gilroy High Athletics Partner Code as well as other deserving partners.

So buy your tickets, see Tiger and the other great PGA stars, and help out the young golfers of our community at the same time.
