It appears that our previous discussion about the relationship of the Gulf Stream and hurricane direction is paying off. Hurricane Irene seems to be catching a ride on the Gulf Stream from the southern tip of Florida; and is aiming for landfall in the North Carolina, Virginia area. Some forecasters are predicting landfall even further north towards New York City and Boston.
We are happy that TPC Sawgrass is in the clear, but we are still nervous for our peers at TPC Boston. TPC Boston is hosting a FedEx Cup event next week. A couple interns from TPC Sawgrass are up assisting with TPC Boston's tournament preparation. They are going to get a great learning experience in tournament preparation while facing adversity from mother nature.
