@saevel25, 28 seconds for a tap-in?!? 😜

I was thinking the same thing, he cleaned his ball off on that one foot putt as well.  🤦‍♂️😜

I think taking the pin out and then taking the glove off put it over the top for me. Need to have the glove off for maximum feel on 8" putts 🤣

I am surprised there aren't more submissions. I've always been slightly *ok maybe more than slightly* envious of those who have the opportunity to take part in this.

Come on guys, let's see some West Coast submissions!

I just need to make sure it's something I can fit into my budget first since I'm in the process of buying a car right now. Once that mess is finished (hopefully by the end of the week) I have my application ready to go if the price for the car was right.

You didn’t see me check the wind speed, wind pressure, temperature and angle of the sun.

and humidity (although not a big factor in Vegas)

Flights into Vegas aren’t expensive.

The flight cost is the least of my worries.

The golf and lodging is covered.

As long as you can stay away from the casinos (might be a problem for some) the cost isn't too bad.

Right.  As long as you can stay away from the casinos (might be a problem for some) the cost is very minimal outside of the travel expenses.

Just watch out for the Phil Mickelson-esque side hustle I hear @Golfingdad likes to run 😜

All right... I'll talk to the wife about it this weekend.  My 'cap has been hovering right around 11 on my home course if that's good enough.  Hopefully my swing change can bring that lower!

    • Hoping there are a few people here who are using Game Golf Live, and can advise, as I was getting well frustrated on the course yesterday.  I am still fairly new to using Game Golf, got it gifted 6 months ago, but only now been playing with it Anyway, on the course yesterday, just could not get it to work stable.  Switched on the Game GPS Unit, it started flashing, then bleeped, white light flashing then paired it with the game golf app on the phone.  It showed my location, so thought off we go .... tag'd my first club the GPS Puck, flashed and vibrated, briefly saw the app show 1 shot, before it went back to 0 ..... took my shot anyway, go to the next shot, again, showed my location, tag'd my club, again same vibrate .. but still no register showing on the phone.  Checked the GPS unit, their seemed to be no lights on, however, it was still registering my location At this point, I ended the round, quit the app, switched off the puck, and then tried to reconnect it all again .... it seemed to go through the same as above ... at this point, got annoyed and switched it off for the round, as it was to distracting So, just wondered, what process / order do people use to get their Game Golf connected correctly.  Do you switch on the puck first, the app .. .what order is this done in
    • So, yesterday I played my par-3s in even, par-5s in one under, and averaged 4.5 on par-4s ... and no sixes.  Anywhere.  Or worse.  First time I've done that. Check it out, my scorecard from yesterday (Nov 16, 2019). f   This was from the blue tees at Encino golf course in L.A..  The second line is where I put notes for later:  G (GIR) or N (near-GIR).  I on occasion make other notations (S: I hit sand, A: got to the green as planned but not in either category;  F: messed up the hole)  I don't do this during tournaments of course.  Just saying it here because it's in the picture. In case the challenge has any such restrictions, I played blue tees which are 70.1 / 114 / 6574 yards.  No mulligans, played with friends in a skins/modified fourball type casual round.  I did accept a few very short conceded putts (none over about a foot).  I believe it qualifies for the challenge.   And I was fully aware of where I stood, score-wise and challenge wise, when I hit my second shot at #16.  So I played the last 11 strokes knowing I had a good round going and a chance to finish the "no sixes" challenge, with a par-5 waiting for me at the end.  I hit a good drive, a great 4-wood, and pitched on from 75 yards with a 9-iron (half swing).  Almost made the putt for a 75 too   76 beats my previous best score of all time by one (that 77 had two sixes on it... but also three birdies).  I get the feeling I'll have a bunch more good scores if I can produce more "no sixes" scorecards  
    • Day 9.  Hit balls for ten minutes indoors, off a mat, into a net.  6-iron.  Focused on completing the backswing.  Balls were plastic.
    • My best shot of the week was hitting a 240yd drive on a par 5 hole twice! No winter roll, no downhill/wind, no cartpath. Just hit it perfectly with a slight draw to the middle of the fairway - ended up with a birdie on that hole both times!
    • Mayakoba Update: Actual events have me standing corrected on the imagined alternative finish as suggested in the preceding post. The reduced field of the alternative scenario most definitely would have finished the 3rd and 4th rounds in one day -- a most important thing to know, if -ANY- type of change is to be made to the actual Low-65 cut rules.
