Long Drive Competition in Mesquite, Nevada

Ever since last summer Austin has been talking about entering a long drive competition. This last year he found one in McCall, Idaho about 2 hours from our house. We were going to head up there, but Austin called to register and was told they only had one other person sign up and had to cancel the competition. The next competition was in Billings, Montana. Even though we would have loved to drive there and visit my family, we couldn't go.

A couple weeks later Austin's dad called and said there was one more competition before the finals this year in Mesquite, Nevada. I couldn't take off work, but a boys' weekend was well overdue anyways. I am a little bit embarrassed now, but before he left one of the main things I was worried about was whether or not his outfit would match. The whole week before Austin kept talking about how excited he was to go down, and spend time with his dad, and all the while I'm putting potential outfits together in my head. Sad but true. I was bummed I couldn't go, but glad they had such a good time.

So after work on Thursday, Austin took off down to Utah, jumped in the car with his dad and they headed down to Mesquite. They got there around 11 o'clock that night and checked into their hotel. Then they drove over to the range to check everything out. There was a security guard there who let them walk around and check out the range.

He hit three different rounds. His longest drive was 331, not near as far as he has hit before. But he had a lot of fun. We'll have to try again next year.
They were able to golf 36 holes as well. Austin said the courses were very nice, but it was super hot.
