This year’s PGA golf tournament was both entertaining and historic. The winner, by the way, was a 200-1 longshot. Nobody in the history of the game has ever won a “major” golf tournament at his age.
The final day was an up and down seesaw of great shots, followed by less than great shots.

Tenerife is an ecological paradise, too, providing a gorgeous tropical atmosphere that is only miles away from the mainland.
Glancing to your right, you notice a rocky paradise, a couple lounging upon stones that are older than time itself. Looking out across the blue span of water surrounding you, you see a catamaran navigating the glassy waters, lifting one of its hulls high off the water, defying gravity while the wind has its way with its sails.
And finally, to your right, you see a foursome playing golf on a course with breathtaking views; every swing they take brings their ball closer and closer to the shore, the mountains in the distance cheering them on.
This beach paradise is America’s beautiful backyard neighbor – Mexico. This is Los Cabos.
