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.

    • Heck, I am 62 and on good days still swing the driver well over 100 mph,  but I am much more consistent with a spinnier 10.5 degree Ping G400 than I am with a 12 degree SLDR. Granted, when I absolutely pound one the SLDR will go further, but not down wind, not enough backspin with the low spin driver to keep it airborne.
    • The pandemic and my surgery screwed things up the past couple years. 2020 ended 12/18/2020, after 9 holes at Washtenaw.  I was feeling poorly and unknown to me, I was going to take an ambulance ride the next morning to the ER.  Fast forward to this year, a buddy and I teed it up at Whispering Willows (Livonia) on March 12.  I was still recovering from surgery but the weather was cooperating so I booked a tee time to see if I could still swing a club.  I could (barely) and so on went the season. Courses start to close down once we hit November.  I will try to keep playing until the ground is frozen, covered with snow or no course will let me play.  I am going to say 12/15 will be that last day and 3/15/2022 will be the dawn of the next season.
    • When I was in my 30's, I used to frequently play a course that was but 6400 yards from the tips, and had some pretty tight holes. I would often, especially on windy days, go all day without pulling a wood. But back then I could actually hit a 1 iron. Set was usually 1,3,5 woods, 1,  3-SW irons, putter. Seldom carried a 2 Iron, really never needed a 2,3 or 4 on that track, even the par 5's would be 1i, 1i  short iron or wedge. Now days I usually carry 1,3,5,7,9 woods and 6-P, gap, sand and lob wedge. I could lose the 3 wood, it's pretty much only used off the tee. But since I got the T300's, the 4 & 5 irons get played in lieu of the 7 & 9 woods on windy days, such as today will be, winds gusting to the high 20's. Tee time at 12:34. Long/mid irons I can actually hit consistently at 62. What a concept. Glad I swallowed my pride and got fitted into these....
    • Some years ago I was in correspondence with both the USGA and the R&A about French Drains.  The USGA were telling clubs that they should be defined as Ground Under Repair in Local Rules. The R&A were saying they were Immovable Obstructions by the then definition. After some toing and froing the USGA agreed. But I still suspect they are advising clubs to label them as GUR. Both bodies agreed that if they were grass covered they must be identified in the LR.
    • I started watching Heels the other day on Starz.  I wasn't enthralled by the pilot, but by episode three I thought it was carrying its weight.  It goes a little off the rails occasionally, but when the subject matter is pro wrestling, what do you expect?
