No need to apologize, looking forward to golfing with you all tomorrow!

Tried to post this earlier (in " real time") but failed. Our fearless leader (Mvmac) with the first tee shot of the day. Center of the fairway, as usual. (So boring to play golf like that ;))

Anyways ... Had a great time, and B team was victorious!! Everybody contributed, however, Brandon (bplewis24) came away with MVP honors after a solid 81! (Net 69 I believe??)

Thanks to everyone who came out!! Can't wait for the next one!

Woohoo!  Team B squeezed out a narrow victory over Team C (115-114).  Looks like the difference was the number one handicap hole, #16.  Coincidentally, that was the hole I did absolutely nothing to help on, and GD had a birdie (net eagle).  

 

Anyway, I had a lot of fun meeting and golfing with everybody.  Thanks to the guys who hosted/helped organize, including Mvmac and Tristan.  Hopefully I can make it down another time.  For now, I'm going to take a nap here at the airport until my flight is ready to board.z3_sleep1.gif

Brandon, thanks a lot for coming down!  I thought that was really cool of you.  If you come back again, lets try and get out and play a round on Sat/Sun before or after the TST outing.

I think late September would be a solid time to pick.  I'm in!

Yes thanks everyone for playing today.  Very cool to see the SoCal outing grow to 5 groups!  Also congrats to Team B!  

 

Some pics I took today

Here are some photos of Team A, B and C.  I apologize to Team D and E for not getting photos of you guys.  I tried to take these on the first hole.  If the teams behind us took any pics, please post them!  Great playing with you all today. I had a good time and it was great to meet Big C.  Dude has a very solid swing... Once he cleans up a few hiccups, he is gonna be going low on a regular basis.

 

Hole #9, 407 yard Par 4.  I had to take this as I had a Cheese Squeeze drive and left myself with 88yds into the green. f1_cool.gif

Too bad I left the sand wedge 20yds short of the pin and ended up with a par. d2_doh.gif

 

Team C, Monti - the Bosox / Bruins fan.  He's a hockey goalie and played well today.  This was taken on #2, a Par 5 up hill.

 

 

Team C, our ringer Dan.  A USC Trojan who played quite well.  He shot a Gross 76.

Team C, Big C!  Had a great time with Cullin.  I thought it was pretty funny... He's a Notre Dame alumni, and was riding with Dan the USC alumni.  The good news, we finished without any fistacuffs!

 

Team B, Brandon aka world beater!  Dude flew in from Norcal to beat some tail and take the MVP trophy from the Socal beach bums.  Nice round Brandon!

 

Team B, this is Tristan's buddy, Barrett.  But I knew he was a player after he stripped his first tee shot.  I should've known Tristan was gonna bring a baller to help his team win! c2_beer.gif

 

Team B captain - Tristan - he asked for a breakfast ball off the first, but I wasn't having any of it! (Hahah busting your chops bud!)

 

Here's a little pre-shot fake by Tristan - showing off his right leg extension.

 

Team B, Cheesanator - I didn't know you birdied #16!  Damn son!  That's a legit birdie.  I know Brandon smoked the field, but that was a huge hole for you and your team given it was the #1 handicap on the course.

 

Team B - The winners of the day (2 of the 4 foursome)

 

Team B, The other two birds who helped win the trophy... Brandon - don't you just hate taking pics by Cheese?  He makes us look like dwarfs!  Hhahaha  

Team A, the infamous Pakoh! 

 

 

Team A, Golfswine aka Libby.  You know you hit it a country mile when you tee off on #1 with an iron - when everyone else is banging driver.  

 

 

Team A, MDL (Matt) says he isn't playing any golf and just working on his dissertation.... But will be finished later this Summer.  MDL is on my team next tournament!  Means he is gonna have more time for golf and his handicap is gonna be going down! c2_beer.gif

 

 

Team A, Mvmac getting ready to rip one down the middle.  No kidding - a nice push draw.  Textbook! c3_clap.gif

 

 

Overall, it was a great day... The weather was a little chilly and overcast in the morning, but later in the day on the back 9, it became really sunny with a pretty healthy breeze.  The temperature was around 75 which was perfect.  Especially since the price of your first beer at the bar after your round is the temperature!

 

Lets do it again this Fall!  My picks are Industry Hills, Goose Creek or Oak Quarry...

my only other photo today ... The result of my tee shot on the par 3 7th hole. :)

It was a great time out there and it was nice to contribute (and win) after playing rather poorly the last time out. I still didn't shoot well but that is attributed to a couple bad holes.

 

Looking forward to doing this again... I was thinking the fall as well and since Mr. Desmond said he'll be down between 9/24 and 9/30 I say we go for that week. I was thinking maybe in the Temecula area since we haven't been there yet and it is kind of central for everybody.

 

Brandon was definitely the MVP of the thing and hopefully he'll be able to make it out for more of these outings in the future.

Kaili and I are up for that. If Brad wants to carpool, we can do that too.

Our new strategy is to play our courses up here like the next fairway is OB. Then, next time, we'll be ready for these beautiful South County and San Diego area courses.

Thinking back, I actually enjoyed the thrill of hitting blindly over trees towards a target pole, then discovering my ball in the fairway. Now I know what is really considered a forced carry.

You guys are great at finding these fun courses. Kaili and I are planning monthly trips to this and the last course we were on.

It was really nice to have that GPS built into the cart.

Lihu, if you like the last one we played at (Tukwet) I recommend that you try the one just on the other side of the freeway, Oak Valley... That is a GREAT course.
