That's why there is the saying "You're away".
Next time someone tries to correct you, tell them "You're wrong".
If they are not fun to play with, tell them you're going to play ahead because they are d-bags. If the marshall says something, tell him they were d-bags. At my course, the marshalls are d-bags. They're everywhere!
I must've missed this thread earlier.
We had fun gathering at Timbers of Troy (up somewhere near BWI Airport) a while back- early 2014 maybe? I can dig up that thread of players (they came from pretty far away and BWI was somewhat central for that group of 12 or so golfers) and tag them to see if they're still around.
Other than Dan ( @dsc123 ), I'm not sure how many are still active on the forum.
It was a great time, and Dan found a fun course that worked for that group. It was further north than I typically go, but at that time, we needed to shift north to accommodate the group who was interested that weekend.
@0ldblu3 plays in the Reston area, as I recall, so if he gets this, he might subscribe to the thread.
Just as big for me. While the strength of field is not as strong, that is hardly my measure for quality in this case. The Olympics are the Olympics and that is huge . Even if golf in the Olympics is not established you will forever be a gold medalist. If I was a pro golfer my list would be 1. Masters, 2. Gold medal, 3. Silver medal, 4. Other majors, 5. Bronze.
Questions about specific of players capping off the career grand slam is a little different - we've added a component. I would speculate though that we may be surprised by some answers. Undoubtedly some will say it means more while others say less. I do think that some would change their answers after the games start. A player may say that a major means more, but after experiencing the buzz, the feel of representing your country (Ryder and President's Cup is not the same), experiencing the opening ceremonies, etc. In the end it's very individual and some will covet it more than a major while others less. My assumption is that where a player stands comes down to how much they watched the games (and the majors) growing up.
Worked on my swing at the range today. Still working on the transition of my swing and focusing on my right arm position at A5. Ive really been struggling lately. Im thinking of just working on putting for a week and then coming back to the full swing stuff.
