Stars at Top Golf

Yes,  we are still here in Houston having recovered from the Bloomin Onion. Have enjoyed the last few quiet days lazing around.

 Our peace was disturbed though yesterday with a trip to the Top Golf range for a round of ‘stand and deliver’ from the tee, blasting our chip controlled ball  away out into the night sky to try to land on the computer controlled multi coloured greens. Scoring points accordingly. The trick with this establishment,  however, is that upon arrival we discovered we had to wait 210 minutes to get our slot. This is apparently somewhat longer than normal as there is an NBA Allstar Game  extravaganza on over this weekend in Houston,  with all the attendant partying.

 In the meantime we sat down and enjoyed some beers and a selection of chicken pieces in Buffalo, BBQ and Asian spices. Finally, we got our slot and proceeded to the tee. A bit of mayhem for the next couple of hours as all the skills were on display.

Where did that ball go?

Earlier in the week Tyler had attempted the Woodland Orchard Drive underpants wearing record. He fell short by one  (I think?) managing only 23 pairs and will have to try again. This was a most  entertaining  performance and we await a renewed attempt.

Attached photo does not do it justice but there are a couple of videos to record the attempt.
