SLAM!!!

 

I can't argue with that, and wont try :-D

I appreciate that y'all want Mike and I to play, and there's still a good chance, but… we have to do what makes sense too. :-)

Blue tees are 6475 yards, not too bad. This course it tough because it's kinda tight off the tee, and there are some hazard areas. Its also up and down, bit hilly. so some approach shots play further. 

Its a great course though, lots of character. 
Length isn't so much an issue for me, but at 141 slope, will definitely be one of the hardest courses I've ever played.

Nah. That assumed you hit clubs certain distances and had certain Shot Zones. a2_wink.gif

It'll still be fun. I brought 3 sleeves, plus the two we're getting. Should be good. a1_smile.gif

That's why I am taking 4 iron off every tee!! 

 

My theory is, if I can hit the green 1 out of 5 times from 200 yards, then I am saving strokes over stroke and distance penalties on my driver! :whistle:

Yea I'm aware a large part of the reason I'm not better is because I don't play enough. Good thing I'll be able to prepare on Saturday. I better re-read the tournament prep chapter.

I am pretty sure you're kidding at least a little, but… you cannot "prepare" in one day. :) Just in case anyone else thinks that applies.

 

P.S. Tournament Prep chapter won't help you. You're not near the course. :)

It didn't seem like an unreasonably difficult course when I played it. Some tough greens, some trouble to be had, but overall...didn't seem crazy difficult. Keeping my fingers crossed for you guys....weather forecast looks AMAZING right now. 74 and sunshine.

A bit, but the Saturday stuff is still going to help. Just being able to see the course before the actual round is more than I get at any other new course I play at.

Yea I just read it again, doesn't help me much.

So when do we find out about the groups/pairings? How are they picked - pulled out of a hat or handicap balance?

17 maybe

18 maybe

 

Anyway, that's the point of the Saturday round - so y'all can see the golf course.

Since you cite your example, and if it is not like asking a lady their age, would you mind telling us your carry distance and ball flight? I think your maybes might be definite yesses for me and some other who carry 235ish.
