Yesterday I was treated by a member to play the Lower Course at Baltusrol. I must say, that course is beautiful. The whole experience was incredible. We got there at about 10am for a 1:15pm tee time, allowing for me to walk through the locker room and see who the members were, look at memorabilia from when Jack won twice, Phil won in '05 and all the old pictures from how it used to look. Playing the course was tough, hitting just 2 fairways and 4 greens. I played off the blue tees (7,000+ yards) and had a great caddie named Abdul. After playing 3 holes, he knew relatively what I was hitting and suggested from there on out. I putted quite well considering the greens were really fast, but true (31 putts). I felt like I had to share, don't know who all has played there but figured I'd post, hoping to hear any stories you guys out there might have. Btw, I shot an 87 and loved every minute of it.
