Whoops, when you click to enlarge I'm used to it opening in another window as a PDF or the like ... These guys are different and I made an incorrect assumption.

Yeah, that's just a PNG.

I'm inordinately pumped about this tournament.  Never played Goose Creek before, so I've fully been wasting time at work Google Earthing the course and noting some yardages and possible strategies for each hole.  Obsessing about my golf swing even more than normal this weekend...

 

On a side note, what's the motivation for the value of the cutoff between blue and white tee assignments?  My only experience with non-TST tourneys is approximately 6 weeks as a member of one of my local course's men's club, and there the flights (which also determine tee selection) are simply chosen so the number of players in each flight (and thus at each tee assignment) is 50/50 or 33/33/33, depending on whether there's two or three flights.  Obviously that's not the rule that was used here, so I'm just wondering the motivation.

Lihu and hacker101 are coming with their kids, so I put them on the white tees.

 

Then jefkve is a high enough handicap index that I felt he might want to play the white tees.

 

If someone wishes to change tees, I'll make the change if it's reasonable (i.e. it would be unreasonable for a single digit to want to play the white tees).

Paging @hacker101 - what is the handicap index for you and your son?

All right, I can live with that!

So unless they give more information, then, here goes:

 

 

I'm a newby to these events so maybe everyone else already knows this?  Why are the handicaps lower than the indexes, when the slopes (assuming the 127 and 124 are slopes) are greater than 113?  Normally a slope in excess of 113 would result in a course handicap that is higher than the index.

We give you 80% of your handicap because it's a team event and we throw away the highest score. If we didn't do this, the highest handicap teams would win disproportionately often.

Are you guys getting rain down there?  We're getting pelted up here in NorCal and it isn't supposed to stop anytime soon.

 

Don't go asking for any of our water or anything :-P

Guys, the weather is jumping from mid 60's today, to mid 70's tomorrow, to mid 80's Tuesday! And it's supposed to stay that way all through the weekend. Sunday is supposed to be 82 with a 0% chance of rain.

Winter, where are you?

Edit: nope, no rain right now. Just a few clouds is all.

Well, that works for me.  Good time to get away from NorCal.  Won't be able to practice though, which sucks.  Honestly I'm only coming down for a release and getaway from work/school.  Hell, I'm at work right now!  And studying when I get home.  I don't expect to play well.  

 

Maybe I can get one of those "haven't played in a long time beginner's luck" rounds :-)

Cool, we're going in first @hacker101!

I am sorry guys, between Chruch, work, work, work and golf I have not been on the internet much.

Put us down for the following.

Hacker 15

Justin 18

Sorry this is my best guess at this point. It seems my game has gone south these last few weeks/month. :cry:

Stay tuned ... we've been pretty consistent with these for the last year or more - having one basically every season - so just look out for our Spring outing coming in April or May (ish).
