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:

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

My kids like their souvenirs.

Thanks for the outstanding week!! Absolute dream golf trip.

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.

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:

    • Sounds like he may have originated from my neck of the woods,   ‘Awayanbileyerheid’ is a fairly humorous response to someone ,  sort of like ,get lost your talking drivel (nonsense) If you want to get an insight of the meaning , Google ‘ Parliamo Glasgow’ -;))
    • I don’t think there is anything wrong with watching YouTube golf instruction videos, if and only if you stick to one or two instructors. I personally like Matt Fisher and Danny Maude myself.    Funny story: I played golf with three guys I haven’t seen in person since about 2003 today. Anyway one of the guys I played with, reminded me of a video I watched on posture recently, with Danny Maude. Me as a low single figure handicap my arms look like / at address down the line. You want them like | or \ slightly on the latter. My posture sucks… and I shot 1 under on the back today.
    • Can you share some information about your computer, such as OS?
    • There used to be a joke about the instructional articles in Golf Digest.  It might still be there, I haven't subscribed in years.  Anyway, every odd-numbered month, the lesson would be "fix your slice," but what they wouldn't tell you is that it'd cost you 10 yards.  In even numbered months, they'd tell you how to gain 10 yards on your tee shot, but not tell you that it'd cause you to slice. YouTube instruction is a bit like that.  You'll get conflicting information that may or may not cancel out.  Find someone reputable and get lessons for you not for some generic you. If you need someone online to give you something to work on, and don't feel like spending the money for something quality like Evolvr (hey, money was tight when I took up golf, I understand), at least make a "My Swing" thread and try what ends up being suggested for you.  The first time I did this, I was shocked at how someone could watch a few swings on video and give me good advice of what to practice that resulted in some improvement.
    • No. At best you’re going to get conflicting advice that may or may not work with other things you’re trying to do in your swing.
