Last year, a group of football players visited St. Kitts for a golf tournament, and we saw Michael Strahan and Clinton Portis at the Marriott pool: Old post: Famous football players at the Marriott
Well, apparently the trend continues, because 2 weeks ago during the mid-semester break, we got to see more. But this time, it was a lot more fun! A group of football players came down to St. Kitts to participate in a golf tournament called the G3: Gridiron Golf Getaway (G3 Website). Our friend Todd, who is in Cory's class and on our volleyball team, got to play in the tournament because his dad helped set it up in the US, and he invited Cory to play as well. So Cory and Todd were paired up with Indianapolis Colts player Courtney Roby, and they got to play the scenic Marriott golf course. Another person who was supposed to be part of the foursome dropped out, so I got to ride along in Courtney's golfcart and watch the three of them play.
Here are Cory, Todd and Courtney teeing off at one of the holes with the Marriott resort in the background
Then when we got back to the clubhouse, we saw a bunch more players
