Thomas has High energy Authentic Jake Arrieta Jersey , said Heaney, who worked with Thomas for 24 years. The guy burned through a lot of Diet Coke. It kept him going.
Some of Heaney s favorite memories about Thomas dedication are from watching him work the State Amateur when it was held at Pebble Beach. The weather sometimes turned nasty in June.

And Bob s out there running around with his camera. It was like a bad scene from Caddyshack, Heaney said. Bob s going crazy, trying to stand still in the wind to get a shot. It was classic Bob.

Through the years, FORE Magazine has been dedicated to covering the top level amateur events in the state, and Thomas attended nearly all of them in his 25 years. It was easy when there wasn t an Internet and people dutifully waited for the magazine to come out. In recent years, fans and families of players have wanted instantaneous results, and the SCGA was one of the first organizations in the United States to offer live scoring.

Thomas remembers first going live at the 1996 U.S. Amateur at Pumpkin Ridge, won by Tiger Woods. There were more than 50 Californians in the field Authentic Miguel Montero Jersey , and Thomas went to elaborate lengths to update each player s card, hole by hole, on the Web.

Two of the longest days of my life, Thomas said.

Of course, this was the same guy who years ago brought, every day from home, the first computer into the SCGA s Studio City offices.

It was supposed to be portable, Thomas said, but it weighed 25 pounds.

Thomas has seen an amazing array of talented players and quirky characters compete in SCGA events. Some of his favorites: Craig Steinberg Authentic Anthony Rizzo Jersey , Scott McGihon, Pat Duncan, Mark Johnson, Ed Cuff, Jason Gore, Kemp Richardson and Todd Demsey.

There also was the guy who drank beer during events and teed his ball up on a beer can.
Hard to believe, but I watched him do it, Thomas said.
Not surprisingly, Woods stands out Authentic Addison Russell Jersey , too.

In 1994, Woods was a national star, and he jointly entered for the only time the SCGA Amateur and State Amateur. Tiger was well beyond us at that point, but he took the time to play, Thomas said. I never asked him, but I think it was his way of saying thanks for us being there when he was a kid. That is the most special memory for me.

Woods fired a 62 in one round of the SCGA Amateur at Hacienda Country Club and won handily. In the State Am, he reached the semifinals, but was upset by Cuff, the San Diegan who went on to win.

Thomas has seen the ups and the downs of the golf industry. He believes it takes too long to play a round Authentic Jason Heyward Jersey , that courses have been made too long, too difficult and unwalkable. The prevalence of golf carts is a blessing and a curse, he said.

His gravest concern? Water will be the biggest single issue over the next 20 years, Thomas said.

Thomas will keep his hand in some golf marketing, and he ll now have more time to enjoy his other interests ? classical music, church activities and public transportation.

Maybe he ll get more time to enjoy himself on the golf course, made freer with no camera over his shoulder. He can pick some sunny days to play.

Golfers are unique, Thomas said. The overwhelming majority of them are solid, wonderful people. That s been the greatest thing working for the SCGA Authentic Ben Zobrist Jersey , the people I ve met.

Christmas is nearly upon us and I expect many parents and families are looking at what toys to buy their children this year. Christmas should be a happy, fun time of year with children playing with their new toys, but thousands of children every year suffer from eye injuries caused by toys. These can range from minor accidents, which don’t require any attention from an eye doctor, to more serious accidents and even blindness. Some examples of eye injuries caused by toys are corneal abrasions, increased intraocular pressure and traumatic cataracts.

Here are 10 simple tips that can help you make the right toy choices for your children this Christmas.

1. Try to avoid toys that shoot objects such as arrow guns for children under 6 years old, even after this age they should always been supervised when playing with them. Children should be advised never to aim at someone’s face, even if the object they are shooting is soft such as foam.

2. A toy should be labelled with the age range it is suitable for, for example if there is a chance of choking Authentic Kris Bryant Jersey , the toy should be labelled for children over 3 years old only. When making your Christmas shopping trips it is always best to follow the advice on the packaging of the toy but these are guidelines and children develop at different rates, so you should always go with what you think is best for your child.

3. Make sure toys will not shatter when played with or have small pieces that could break off easily. These small shards, which may be sharp, could be thrown up into a child’s eye if it breaks which can cause serious injuries.

4. Try to also avoid toys that have sharp edges or points, they could poke their eye or another child’s.

5. Christmas time is when families get together and there may be a large age range of children playing together, always try to separate children’s toys so younger children don’t play with toys that are meant for older children.

6. You may be thinking of buying an older child a chemistry set, always supply them with safety goggles to avoid any chemicals getting into the eyes which can cause nasty injuries, and always supervise them while they are .
