Yes, I know in Wisc we have one qualifying sites all around the state (like 5 sites), from there I believe the top 3 or 5 go on to a final qualifying site in Wisc before a national qualifying site. I knew one guy that made it into the second round of match play (which was quite impressive). It all depends obviously on the course and the conditions of what you have to shoot. Somewhere near par would give you a chance on any course.
I agree, I'm glad some of the best players are coming back to the States to play. Should be a fun 2012 for golf watching! I will miss waking up on the weekend and turning on the Golf Channel to watch those guys on the European Tour.
I'm not saying on a regular day I could compete with these guys, but the finale was some terrible golf. Neither one would've broken 80, if they weren't given every putt because the other guy was out of the hole. They both hit 2-4 greens in reg, that is really bad. I guess I just expected more from two guy who have aspirations of becoming legitimate players. From all the shows I saw, they aren't even close. Cheers to Julien however for snagging Mallory! 
Why is it that every team who doesn't win, thinks that the winning team cheated? It is possible to win and not cheat! I have gone 15 - 18 under and won, as well as gone 15 - 18 under and lost. I didn't accuse anyone of cheating, however. My goal is to 1. have fun 2. drink plenty and 3. Win if possible, but that is just an added bonus. People should not play in scrambles if they always accuse the winning team of cheating!!
I like scrambles, and win a lot of them actually. But they mess up my stroke play for at least a round or two following. Guess the reason is that I am the longest, and expected to be the longest, so I swing outa my shoes on nearly every drive. I always play to win, but have a lot of fun doing it. People that take it too seriously, are missing the point.
It will be some fun TV watching this weekend. I am rooting for Duval and BOOOOOO. I can't believe some of the big names, and major winners (Janzen), who are in the field.
I am thankful for: - having a job that pays me enough to fund my outragous golf addiction year-in and year-out - the birth of my first son this year who will undoutably be on tour in 20 yrs or so! - all of my friends and my father whom I can always call and get a game with anyday and anytime
Happy Thanksgiving! It's at least nice to go into the winter with good memories in your head of your last round. I tend to play my best really late in the year and again in early spring because I don't expect much out of myself, and therefore relax and have a good time. Easy to say, "why don't you do that all the time?" but for some reason my mind won't let me???
I would love to try that. Money might be the deciding factor though..... Have a limo and some drinks waiting to take you to each course. Play some awesome courses and then turn around and try to go back from the west coast to the east coast the next day.....even harder
I am working on my anger issues and my language used on the course. Don't know why I take this game so serious that I let it get to me like that. Stupid Game. My story: I was pissed off in general at another crappy round. On a par three after missing another green, I took an angry swing at the tee box. A huge divot flew up and hit my buddy square in the face, knocking him backwards. After filling the divot with mix, my buddy tackled me on the tee and told me I was an...
