I would play any goat ranch in the world if I could have some time with my mom again. That being said, I would rather choose the course, Augusta.

Easy.  I’ll take the course.

Any course? Definitely chose the course and play with random people.

I'm rather solitary any how, so I end up playing with a lot of different characters each year. 

Picking the course would be a once in a lifetime chance because I never figure to cough up the kind of money it would take to play one of the world's best courses. Think it would have to be The Old Course.

For those of you choosing the course OR the playing partners, WHERE or WHO are you choosing?

I'd choose the course. I'd likely have to choose a place I haven't played before, though one I know won't disappoint. Pine Valley, most likely, but that place will eat you up if you're not prepared. Augusta National, some part of your game had better be on point, but you could get it around. Cypress Point, perhaps? I'd be good with any of the three, TBH. Whichever had the best forecast for the day, I guess. 😄

I think this one is pretty easy. I would choose the golf course. I'll take my chances with the playing partners.

I am choosing Augusta National. Its not the best of the architectural masterpiece golf courses (though its pretty dang good), but its the least likely the I will ever have the chance to play on otherwise...so that's what I would go with. Plus I could watch the masters every year knowing I played that course and remember what it was like.

I enjoy both but since I can't sit on the fence, I'll take playing with my regular group at a completely random golf course.    This year, of  the 55 rounds I played, we played 40 different courses.

If talking a single day, then take the course - could be any truly bucket list course.  If talking about a weekly occurrence, take the buddies - life's too short.

I'm going to change my answer.  I think I read Erik's question incorrectly.  I'll go for the random course and play with Arnold Palmer, Ben Hogan and Phil Mickelson.  And if we all have to play a goat track in the middle of nowhere so be it... it'll be a change of pace for those 3 guys.

Not a Tiger fan, though I do admire his comeback from multiple surgeries.  Besides I think those other guys would be more interesting to banter with... eh, maybe not Hogan.  But I want to ask him about his book and swing.  And see if I can get him to sip a Arnold Palmer afterwards in the grill.

Two of those guys are dead. You can't play with them.

Then I'll go with Phil Mickelson, Gary McCord and Erik Barzeski.

Point well taken.  You get a treat for that answer...

Funny.  Kinda.  Perhaps I can play with those boys on a Mexican goat  track on Dias de los Muertos.  How do you say "Fore!" in Spanish?  And now I'll try to get Hogan to sip a good tequilla... loosen him up a little and let him try his swing with a sheet of glass fitted over his head.

    • Day 51 - Worked on some hip turn in the mirror. Need to film for Evolvr tomorrow, see how my setup looks. 
    • Made it through 16 holes today at +11 (73). Had 14 GIR/nGIR. I was about 30 yards from the green on a par-5 when I had to quit due to darkness. Just extrapolating my scoring, if I par #17 (considering I was close to GIR already), and bogey #18, that would be an 83, which is an excellent score for me on this course, from the tees I was playing. My ball striking was good all round, and I only had one horrendous mishit (topped a 3W off the tee on #2, ended up making a 6). The wind was strong and gusty so the ball was doing some weird stuff. On the first hole I flushed my drive, and it only got out 228 yards, then proceeded to hit my hybrid 260 yards just short of the green.  
    • Day 317 Played 16 holes today. Started pretty late in the afternoon, and was almost home on the par-5 17th hole when it was finally too dark to continue so I picked up and headed home. One of the best rounds in recent memory, and there was some pretty wild wind to contend with. Too tired for a superspeed workout so that will wait until tomorrow.
    • The only people that are allowed to whine about 3 putt pars are tour pros😉. Just kidding. Glad you got out for a round, and keep that driver in play and going LONG!!!
    • Day 126.  Speed sticks, protocol one at halftime of SNF.  It has been eleven days since I did this last;  that's way too long.
