Updated. Add your name when you're "in."

Saturday (Practice) at CHQ:

  1. @georgep
  2. @Hardspoon
  3. @BradSomrak
  4. @Bonvivant
  5.  
  6.  
  7.  
  8.  

Sunday (Playing) TBD:

  1. @saevel25
  2. @georgep
  3. @Hardspoon
  4. @BradSomrak
  5. @Bonvivant
  6.  
  7.  

We'll take up to ten people on Saturday, btw, but once we get to six I'll basically be able to say the entire day is for TST practice/lessons/etc.

The practice facility here has our own range (for instruction, practice), three putting greens, one of which has a bunker and is good for chipping/pitching, and a lower one that's good for putting and chipping/pitching, with three 150-ish yard practice holes. All included in the $78 with my instruction. (Again $60, my junior rate, for the never-ending all-day revolving lessons, and $18 for the day pass for the facility.)

But anyway, we're at four, so once two more people commit to Saturday, it becomes an "all-day" thing, and we can start and end at slightly different times than the 9-3 I proposed. Could do 10-5, could do 9-5 if we get more people, etc.

Lol.. Y'all were lot of fun to spend the weekend with. Honestly the best parts was catching up with old friends and now getting to put a face on the the handles of new friends. Shout out to @iaca

Some data: The winner (@DrizZzY) of the quota game and $80 shot +1 to his quota. There was a three-way tie for second, and @DinnerTime won $60 for making a three from 137 out on the ninth

My calendar shows me open for that weekend. I have to check with "The One Who Must Be Obeyed". She's in a meeting right now, upstairs in her office. Maybe I'll go press my face against the glass window of her office until she waves me in. 

Oh btw, if I come will @iacas sign my copy of LSW?!?!

Trying to figure out what do with my wife for that weekend. We are new to the area and I hate for her to have to play the golf widow. Looking to see if there would be things for her to do. Looks like the second day would most likely be in PA. Is the waterfront developed in Erie? Are many restaurants and attractions open?

I'm a definite for Saturday. Name added to list.

Thank you for putting this together. I can't freaking wait!

The boss says I can play. I'm in for both days.

Cool guys. Is everyone on the list?

BTW I’m happy to expand hours Saturday and also reduce cost slightly if we get more people. So keep filling it up as the more the merrier.

We can go beyond those as needed, and we'll work out "shifts" or something on Saturday for the "lessons" so everyone isn't wanting to start working on "things" at the same time. The whole day Saturday is for y'all now, so that's good.

Is this something where we could spend all day there if we wanted to too? Just to be around golf and new people? If this is the case, I wouldn't mind taking an afternoon slot. I've never had any kind of lesson and wouldn't mind waiting and just moseying around and warming up.

Yeah, you can spend all day there. Right now we don't need much "afternoon" time. If we have eight, my plan would be for people to start showing up between 9 and 10:30. If you're going to be a later "lesson" you can putt or chip for awhile, with some others, and if you're going to be an earlier lesson you can warm up and get into it a little bit.

But you can easily spend the day there. There's a decent lunch place (just takeout subs, a small grocery store) not far away, and we might even eat outside as a group that evening at Andriaccio's there in CHQ.

If we go beyond 8 or 10, we can make "shifts" of sorts, as people will not want to be there for nine hours straight (then again, what else do you have to do, since you can also just bring a book and take an hour-long break 😄?), but you know… 😉

    • It was probably a gift. Personalized golf ball. 
    • Day 72 (6/15/21) - Worked on tempo with my putter and a metronome.
    • Three rounds to catch up on: 5/12: Played Hillandale from the whites. Not a good start, +5 after 3 holes, but I parred the tough fourth hole and battled back to shoot 44 on the front and 42 on the back for 86. I was pretty happy after the poor start. Irons were spectacular, but short game…not so much. 5/14: Yesterday it was back to Umstead Pines, and we decided to play the blues. I played a solid front nine, 44. Three pars and two doubles. My bro played one of the best nines of his life. After a triple on the first hole, he parred the second and then bogeyed in. 47 for him! We moved on to the back. I slipped a little to start the back, but I righted the ship again and parred the last two holes for 45 on the back and 89 total. How I shot 89 is beyond me, because my whole game felt shaky after about the sixth hole. 5/15: I had a feeling before we played that I would go low, and I did. I was +1 through 7, and while I doubled 8 after an unlucky bounce on my tee shot, I rolled in about a ten footer for birdie on 9 to shoot a two-over 38 on the front. And after 12, I was still only +3, having started par-bogey-par.  Thoughts started creeping in, and I doubled 13, 14 and 16 with a three putt bogey on 15. +10 going into 17. I caught a horrific bounce on my approach and had to settle for bogey, then I parred the last hole to shoot 45 on the back and an 83 total. Unlike the last two rounds, short game was on point today. I hit nine fairways, and two of my misses were by no more than a yard. I’ve got an early tee time tomorrow morning with a buddy, and we’re planning on playing a handicap match. More on that tomorrow!
    • Day 1 backswing work yesterday at Golf Evolution with @iacas   Day 2. Back home.  Did mirror work drills this evening.
    • Day 112.  Morning I snuck out to the putting green;  after warm-up, I did the 4' drill.  Must have had a harder break this time, took me 18 putts to finish.  Not bad, not great.  Got home, got some work done, went back to practice (the rest is at home).  I did a dozen chip shots with my 54 (well, a friend's 54 I'm thinking of trying for a few rounds) and then did 20 full shots with the 7-iron (slow, as I'm practicing something).  I think adjustments after the video the other day have helped to change the picture, and I want to go confirm this tomorrow if I can.
