24 Hours in San Diego
January 26, 2005
Recently I was able to escape the sub-zero temperatures of Montreal for a meeting in San Diego for a few days. That would have been enough until I saw my lodging arrangements and noticed I would be staying at La Jolla Torrey Pines, along the 18th fairway of one of the most recognized golf courses in the world. Again, this would have been enough until I learned we would be there the week the Buick Invitational would be held at Torrey Pines. Luckily, I wasn't leaving until Thursday afternoon, and was able to catch my first ever glimpse of a professional golf event, which featured four of the top six players in the world. My experience starts the night before.
