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

I said I'd have a cart, and you all go out of your way to call me an idiot. Yes, it's definitely not me who'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.

I have friends! :dance:

We’ll just get little Dechambeau/Hogan hat stickers, and have the finger pointing at it, so everyone will know what we’re talking about.

As if the goofball with the push cart on the Sandbox wouldn’t already have told them all they need to know.

I keep trying to tell myself this is a bit by @billchao, but it’s just not funny.

Maybe Bryson’s ball spritzer guy can push your push cart around the 1600-yard course for you. 😄

It may actually be less work than the spritzing.

That is perfect for air travel to resorts with a par 3 course.  Great product.

What club do you hit 145? 

Yeah the longest hole is pretty short, I think 3-4 clubs total for most of us will be fine.

I have one of those (and love it for the range). It’d actually be cool if there was a way to attach a shoulder strap. 

I’ve actually started playing more par-3 courses recently so a Sunday bag will be a good purchase.

I know I walked the Cradle with just a few clubs in my hand, that could be the way to go at the Sandbox.  OTOH, my wife has a little teeny bag normally used to take few clubs when you're cart paths only, and your ball is across the fairway.  Y'all wouldn't give me a hard time if I had a pretty pink bag for my Sandbox rounds, would you?

Only if you had matching pink socks to go with it.. 😊.

I might steal my son's bright green Sunday bag myself.

Of course we will.

I mean, what do you take us for? Polite? 😄

Hmmm, this is making me consider which bag I should bring. My clubs are basically forever in my PSU bag (I have two), but I have other bags, too. Including a little cart bag. And my staff bag (not bringing that one).

I think I am switching to my Ping Carry bag just because its not as heavy as my stand bag. 

I might just bring my PING Newport Cup bag, too.

Geeez, The bag felt heavier with out the clubs than the Ping Newport Cup bag with the clubs in it.

Doesn’t look like much of a course from a Google Maps perspective.😜

 

It's strange that Google Earth displays 2013 imagery as the base image. You can switch it to 2017.

And in 2017 you can see parts of Mammoth Dunes still under construction.  That's about the same time as these photos and discussion:

    • Day 124: Worked on backswing piece, and transition. Filmed some DTL and FO swings for my Member Swing thread, but can't figure out how to get the videos out of the Live View Pro app on my Amazon tablet to post on YouTube (in theory, the LVP camera seems like a nice training aid, but I am getting frustrated with how clunky it is to use). I noticed that it didn't look like I was making a good shoulder turn at all, at a point the shoulders stopped rotating and arms kept going, maybe because I have been working on cupped wrist feel my shoulders/core have gone dormant. So did some airplane drill to really feel the shoulders turning and then filmed a bit more.  
    • WTA Suspends Tournaments in China Over Treatment of Peng Shuai - The New York Times Steve Simon said Wednesday that the women’s tennis tour would not stage tournaments in China, including Hong Kong, because he has been unable to communicate with Peng despite repeated attempts. Go, WTA!
    • The guy pretty much knows what he's doing.  But as you said, possibly not for us mere mortals.  Though I do use this swing sometimes in the wind.  And I'm as mortal as anyone...
    • From what I've heard him say in interviews, it comes from the fact that he drills loads of punch shots, and it just kind of stuck in the full swing... It does work for him and I assume his coaching staff are cool with it, but I'm fully invested in the idea that what works for pros might not be a good idea for the rest of us mortals. I've seen some coaches say that working on post-impact positions (such as "straighten your arms in the follow-through") can lead to tension, which can be harmful. I certainly notice some tension when doing this finish in a full swing (it feels as if I need to decelerate the club more consciously),  but at first glance it hasn't had any negative effect on my shots, but rather the opposite...
    • Looks good to me too. It obviously works well for him. I suppose it keeps the ball under the wind better for those European courses?  I happen to like his putting grip as well….I’ve adapted it lately
