The Perfect Golf Day: Sun, Cypress Point and Pebble Beach

I’m more than a touch worn out from walking 36 holes (the last 18 while carrying my bag), but I’m also elated at what may have been my best day of golf — 18 at Cypress Point Club in the AM, followed by lunch and a round at Pebble Beach. I’ll go into more detail about it upcoming, but suffice to say I managed to bogey the 16th at Cypress, and par the 18th at Pebble Beach as the sun was dying in the sky. Here’s some photos of the day — more to come when I’m back in Canada.
