I’m leaning toward mixed tees.

1, 6, 8 on the front white. On the back 10, 15, 16, 18.

I like this. Even though I don't know the place, shortening up the longer par fours would be much appreciated, and fun idea to make 16 even more in range for the longer players, could make for interesting skins action.

I know. Play along a bit longer though man!

If only I had those speedsticks that I've had my eyes on. Probably gonna snag those up after this trip.

I’m not playing at a 5. I’d feel a lot more comfortable at, say, a 15.

This is pretty accurate. Whispering probably is the leader in courses I’ve played where, when calculating my score, I think “how the hell did I put up such a high number?” 

In the same week, I shot like 102 and 82 at WW, so there’s that. It you’re hitting the ball poorly it punishes you, but if you keep the ball in play, there are scoring opportunities.

It is not hard; yet, you can put up big numbers in a hurry if you are playing sloppy.

It’s not hard. It’s not easy, though. Can’t really get away with bad shots.

Ah, it's so simple. All I have to do is only hit good shots. :beer:

Conservative play at WW is often the best approach to scoring. But can be a bit more boring.

Quota rewards a steady game. And you don’t play for skins; they just happen.

I suspect @saevel25 was trying to goat the rest of us into blowing up...  Which I totally respect by the way....

Staying at the Hilton Gardens in downtown Erie. Coming up on Friday night, but may make a pitstop in Cleveland for dinner with a friend on the way. Definitely willing to carpool to NY on Saturday if anyone is close by.

Hopefully you all do better than Le Maison des Cafards or whatever that place in Norwalk was called.

Yeah, well probably can't do worse.

Athenaeum Hotel in Chautauqua. I don't really need a hotel from where I am located, but my wife likes that sort of thing. She is driving back Sunday morning.

$20 on Sunday ($45 for greens fee/cart if you're not a member of WW):

  • $5 toward Net Skins pot
  • $5 toward Gross Skins pot
  • $10 toward Quota Game pot

The quota game will be a pretty standard quota game. I'm not sure if I'll do a percentage of handicaps or what…

  • Bogey = 1 point
  • Par = 2 points
  • Birdie = 4 points
  • Eagle = 8 points
  • Albatross = 12 points

To make payouts easier, please bring four $5 bills or at least a $10 and two $5s.
