Here in NJ I hit a shot 100 yards and it bounces and goes 107 or so. Now Im concerned that I should be hitting a 95 yard shot and letting the ball release up to the pin....
I kind of assumed this thing lost its steam, being so close to the proposed date and not any concrete plans, yet. Shame. Anyway, I convinced the wife to let me go to the one in Erie, so I doubt she'd let me do two outings in the same year.

Btw, greens are probably a little firm because we haven't gotten much rain lately. If you can't stop the ball on the greens, then I definitely would recommend hitting it slightly shorter.

Yeah, and that's largely my fault. I should have pressed it harder, sent out group PMs, etc.

I'd still like to do something though, even if it's only a group or two. So what I think would work the best is just to set a date (likely in July), and then whoever can come can come, and whoever can't, well, sorry. But that way we'll have a super firm date.

We will have to try again. Like I said, I won't be able to do anything else this year, but if the wife gets used to idea that I travel sometimes for golf... I'll keep wearing her down a1_smile.gif

Looking forward to meeting you in Erie, though.

I think the best option is July 19th. Plus/minus one week if we really have to.

But put that in your calendars, and I can start making arrangements with the course.

I can't go this time, sorry guys. Between the Erie outing and the 5SK clinic, I've used all my brownie points for a while.

He may not. It is an American reference.
