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:  

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

My kids like their souvenirs.

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:

    • Thank you.  I'll play this out a bit in 2022 and count the rounds at each, too.  I think for 2022, my formerly-close home course will be the most common "not my close home course" I play, so it'd be different from the rest of the away composite.  
    • BTW try to name the pictures well so that everyone knows what they are looking at. I will rename the three I added to start the album when I get a moment.
    • I'm a long time flight-simmer and have MSFS on my PC with yoke, throttles, pedals, etc.  Pretty much built my current setup around flight simming (though my daughter does some gaming and takes advantage of the hardware!).  Got the max version day of release last August and have really enjoyed it. There's a "friend" system built-in.  I haven't really used it (one random person with "Bama" in their name friended me)--but would love to fly with any of you guys.  Add me as a friend when you can.  My MSFS profile name is "THEBAMABRUIN".  I fly several times a week, mostly at night...or when it's rainy outside.  So catch me online, or message me here to link up.  Since my kiddo regularly uses my rig, I'll commandeer her sweet headset and we'll go for a fly somewhere cool.

    • Opps, bad editing.  The sentence should have read "I think his comment.....".  I started to write it one way then changed.  the "do not" should have been deleted.
