LSU fans have been jaded for about 10 yrs now.  Les is a very good coach IMO.  When I was in HS in Louisiana (late 90's), they were still struggling to get 8 win seasons.  I'm thinking for the national title......somebody not named LSU or A&M will beat Alabama.  For some strange reason, I see it being Ohio St/Oklahoma.
Pretty sure they made most of that back by selling the ad rights/on site tickets at a slightly higher than normal rate as some sort of 'novelty'.
This was quite the 'who can top me' match (could've used another word but I digress) b/t Golfingdad and phan52.  However, getting to the original post, I think Costas was using a bit of hyperbole.  Since events of this type require more 'luxury' accommodations (for people like Costas himself), I'd compare an open at Merion more to having a Super Bowl at Lambeau or an All Star Game in a city like Memphis....places where big events are held, but it's a stretch logistically...
TPC may be too rich for my blood, but the Westin seems reasonable.  Barton Creek, I may save for a trip with the lady.
It's a good number of people on the board from North TX, never had any complaints, so I could try that.  I'm thinking either San Antonio or Austin for starters.
I'm thinking of going on a golf vacation solo due to not having a lot of golfing friends willing to go on a trip of this sort.  Has anybody thought about this or done it before?  Just soliciting some opinions before pulling the trigger.
Maybe a slight re-wording would help, assuming the OP meant playing while there's golf on TV.  And actually the back-nine talk would only apply to the Masters/US Open, since TNT shows early coverage of the PGA.
I'd have to say only a compelling major (I generally DVR majors and go play due to the lack of people on the course) or something historic like a grand slam attempt or Tiger passing Jack.  I have to say only on TV, because the USGA/PGA seems to not like picking venues in the Southwest for their majors  
Can I call BS on this.  If not I will anyway.    Is Woods a saint......NO.  But you have managed to make the old guard seem like deities (despite their own issues) and show your own misguided beliefs or flat out denial of the issue shown to the board.  This takes a special talent, one which I want no part of.
  No.  But my experience with schoolyard joking (or playing the 'dozens', in some circles) lends credence to the following theory:  Those with thin skin will joke about the following more often than not, because they know no better:  1) parents (especially deceased parents)  2) girlfriend/wife 3) stereotypes.  Sergio, one who is known to have not only rabbit ears, but thin skin, fits this mold to a T, much more so than him being out and out raycess (spelled like this on...
