Fill it in and be done with it. Bring some soil from Sand Valley for the last scoop you use to fill in that hole.

Sounds like you’re throwing good money after bad.

That is a SERIOUS consideration. If it wasn't for Emma, that would be the plan for sure. It's not completely off the table yet. I could build me a sim room in that spot...haha.

I know, I know. This pool is going to cost me about 18k to repair though.

Oohh, my sympathies. That's a gut punch. See you in another outing. I am sure there will be more.

I think 12 is a good number, so while I have spaces out to 16, I think internally both Nate and I are liking 12. Or 8, but 12 is better, IMO, and I hope we can stay at 12 or so.

I am going to have to bow out as well. The estimates I am getting to repair my pool aren't looking good and I will need every dime I can gather. Replacing all of the concrete is not going to be cheap....sorry guys. 

Sorry to hear it, that is a tough break.

Not ready to be added to any list yet, but I did just catch up on the thread and my interest is piqued.  @cipher, just curious, is it at all feasible to do the 5th day if you're flying through Minneapolis?  Cursory glance gives me nonstop options through MN but more expensive and longer trip options to MIL.  But if they are in complete opposite directions, then maybe that just won't work.

The courses all look amazing too.

That would be tough but not impossible.  Might requite flying out on the 6th day.  From Lawsonia Links it would be a 4 hour drive back to MSP airport.

Waiting on my pool quote to come in this week, but I foresee it killing my golf trip budget.

Me too, my wife and I are in the process of looking for/making offers for a new house so we are keeping as much cash free as we can right now. Plus I started a new job back in Jan which has 5 less vacation days than my previous role.

Sheesh, people are dropping like flies. We don't smell that bad...

:-D:-D:-D It's not about the smell I promise! Our original plan was to start looking for a house late summer/early fall so I thought I would have been fine for the trip but then the new job came with a pretty good salary increase so we were able to start looking for a house earlier in the year plus the loss of 5 PTO days didn't help my case either.

Increased salary and scaling back on golf doesn’t make sense. 🙂

Completely counter-intuitive.   

But this leads me to ask, are the dates definitive enough that I should really start thinking about booking flights?

That de-escalated quickly...  Well, I'm not dropping out.😉

Most (maybe all?) airlines are still allowing free changes and refunds. So it might not be a bad idea to jump on a cheap flight if you see one.

Yes, if you are able to find cheap flights you could do so at this time.

    • Playing well enough to like golf a bit more lately but camera kept telling me that I haven't made any real change. It took me an hour of recording and deleting to get to this one. Everything else looks like the same old garbage.  Throwing hands as far back as possible is not changing anything it seems. Not sure why I couldn't get wide even for a practice no ball swing after 4-5 mins of super slow reps. This seems like a small stride forward. @iacas let me know if you agree. The feel is to let hips and chest open to the camera so the trail arm freely goes out and wide. 
    • You may be right but the patch towards the top and the one bottom right look to be bigger than a normal divot hole. Also the divots are a) behind the holes and b) look to be much smaller that the holes. I would like to see some sort of scale, the grass seems to be very long for a fairway cut.
    • Good article and plan. I need to do a better job of making my practices more focused. I know what I have to work on, which helps.
    • I don't do podcasts. But I listened to this and enjoyed it. It nice to learn more about Erik's background and teaching philosophy.  I wish there was someone like that around here.
    • So I was watching this French comedy about flat dwellers dealing with the onset of COVID (8 Rue de l'Humanité/Stuck Together - Netflix) and there's this scene where someone says le COVID and then is corrected la COVID. It made me look up - French language covid feminine vs masculine. Apparently this was decided on last year by the authorities of the language. It's, la COVID. I wonder what other languages that make the feminine masculine distinction decided. French Linguists Conclude The Debate Over The Gender Of The Word 'COVID-19' French linguists at the Académie Française have finally put an end to the debate of which of the definitive articles — a masculine le... BTW, the movie was pretty funny, I laughed... a lot. Actually I cracked up a couple of times. So much that is relatable.
