A few pictures from Lawsonia yesterday that don’t do the place any justice:  

@cipher called and got us some great times. We will warm up at the Sand Box every day (takes about 90 minutes, all short par threes, 17 of them): Monday, July 19 Sand Box: 8:54am, 9:06am

A few pictures I took today:

Sandbox in the mornings might end up being a good thing. I’ve read some comments from people on the internet that say it’s a good way to warm up and get a feel for the conditions before you play.

Yeah I think it will be great for that, and also for getting used to the bunkers. They are a bit tricky to hit out of.  I'm actually thinking about brining a Sunday bag for the Sandbox rounds.  Something to consider I guess with only needing a few clubs.

I’m bringing a Sunday bag.

I’m renting a cart anyway, so I’ll just use it for both The Sandbox and Mammoth Dunes/Sand Valley rounds each day.

Dude. No.

I’m going to assume you’re joking to protect my sanity.

Why not? It’s $10 to rent a cart for the day. Why wouldn’t I just rent it two hours earlier?

If you take a push cart on the Sandbox I’m banning you. 😄

Why not? Imma let you figure that out.

you need a push cart for 5 clubs? I’m not even sure you need a golf bag

Geez. I was just saying since I'm already going have to rent a cart anyway, I might as well get extra use out of it.

You guys seem to making a big deal out of nothing. I'll carry the damn clubs in my hand, f***ers 😜

Yeah, it’s us that’s making a big deal out of nothing.

It’s okay, though, Bill. The other seven of us will just all wear “I’m With Stupid” shirts.

P.S. I think if you use a push cart at the Cradle they’re legally obligated to toss it onto the train tracks. If not, they should be.

    • Did you end up checking it out?
    • You know some people pay good money to be spectators at events like these. 😂. I have a friend who thinks I'm a slow player because I always get to the course after him, take two practice swings as part of my preshot routine, and use Aimpoint when putting what's m whereas he just hits and takes a look at his putt for a second or two before putting.  I don't think I'm a slow player but maybe i am 🤷‍♀️. That said, generally speaking, i don't have a family or anything i have a specific time that i have to get back for so a 4-4 5 hour round doesn't bother me as long as we're not stop, go, stop, go, stop, go.  If it feels like we're in rhythm then i generally won't be bothered bc the round won't feel like it takes a while.  I guess playing at public courses generally on weekends when you know it's going to be filled with ppl just makes me expect that a round won't be less than 4 hours.
    • Day 27 (23 Jul 21) - long day w/the grandkids, decided a few minutes with the putter was what was needed.  Worked on backswing - downswing length making sure both are equal length.  
    • Has anyone successfully got a round off of a GG Live system via computer in the past few days?  I'm wondering if Wednesday's failure was related to some sites disappearing briefly from the internet (although I was able to access the GG site).   Right now, mine is just recharging so I can use it on Sunday.  Would be nice to get the stats for today.
