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.

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:

    • What I did with my used 2014 driver shaft.... it ended up on my current driver. It just worked better for me.
    • Thanks for your feedback very much appreciate it, I tried one of them in a callaway ut driving iron but it was I think too stiff and long, so I can do anything and it won’t matter as their cactus lol, I did love the 3 wood and I had the full set of irons that I sold. They were from a Aussie Pro I had a lot of lessons with, the heads were crap well too difficult for me except I loved the 2 iron and 3 wood… again thank you..
    • The main difference between GI irons and blades - I've played both (my blades were like that shitty rental set Shorty was talking about)  - is that with the GI iron, when you mishit or thin a shot won't sting as much, especially in colder weather. If you have a GI 7i and hit that say for example 160 yds. If you're 1/4" off the sweet spot it'll go 145 yds. With a blade if you're 1/4" of it'll go 100 yds. and either to the right or left. If you hit the shot fat with either club, the ball isn't going far anyway. A hosel rocket will go further into the woods with a GI iron.  Play whatever you want. You have to determine how much time you have to practice. How often will you practice. If you have high expectations and will practice everyday, by all means, go for the better player irons. You don't have to use butter knives, but if that's what you want, go for it. It's your money.
    • I am not new to putting, but I can guarantee that I am definitely more confused about it than anyone else on this forum 🙃  We’ll get through it together. 
    • My takeaway here is to take nothing for granted. I read the second putt as a new putt given a little more information from others having putted.
