How do you switch?

I use Google Earth program, so I got more options than searching google through the browser. I thought there use to be a way to switch images, but they might have gotten rid of that in the browser form of google maps.

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

Well at least we know the sand is a natural characteristic there. 😊 It is supposedly around 200’ deep in some spots.

I think you mentioned that the sand was different, what makes it tricky?

Be careful how deep you wiggle your feet into the sand...

I don’t know what sand they used for the bunkers near the greens. But if my memory serves me well, which is questionable, it is very soft and unforgiving.  I’ll also be using the putter as much as I can near the greens. My short game still sucks. Haha

This is often the best play where I've played on sand-based courses, like Scotland links or the Pinehurst area.

I have read that putter is a viable option even from 60 yards out at times.

Well at least for some people. Not me, though. I struggle to hit my putter 60 feet.

We got some rain last week, hopefully some here in the near future as well.

I have a few yardage books from over the years. I have SV but need to get the Mammoth one.

I have downloaded the pdfs. It's time I get myself used to working yardage books.

Good video to help plan for the Sandbox, what clubs you want to bring or how you want to approach it.

There MD and SV vlogs are great too. Thanks. I think I saw somewhere on the vid that they are UW college players.

Yeah I think UW Stout.  Which is near Eau Claire, not far from where we will be staying. 

I did an old man thing and bought a cart bag this morning, Ping Traverse with a built in cooler pocket. My stand bag does not have tie downs for the legs and it is always an issue on push carts.

    • 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
