@BradSomrak are you still wanting to play? Looks like I need to give up my spot. It is my birthday and it seems my family in Ohio want to throw a proper party for me.

I was hoping the tee times were in the AM.

The tee times were known on May 18.

@BradSomrak made other plans when the spots were filled.

We have one open spot guys.

My father passed away Friday, after a four year battle with Alzheimer's dementia.  For a long time, it was an evenly matched struggle between an insidious disease and a strong, elegant man. Unfortunat

Well that was certainly an interesting 11 minutes. They moved it because you told them you had a TST outing, right? 😉

I’m wearing mine just to troll @ChetlovesMer.

Sorry all - I am a no go next weekend. A bathroom/bedroom renovation running behind and I’m in charge of the kid on Sunday. 
 

I hope everyone hits them straight.

You explained post 52 to them, right? I guess I’ll be drinking your birthday beer then.

Seriously though, have a good time with your family.

If we don't get another committed player by say 8 pm tonight, I will still play. Sorry to cause trouble, but I knew Mr. somrack was waiting and thought I would ask.

I don't know if that's necessary, especially as you're coming from Buffalo. But if you want to play, the spot is open.

My father passed away Friday, after a four year battle with Alzheimer's dementia.  For a long time, it was an evenly matched struggle between an insidious disease and a strong, elegant man. Unfortunately, the final inning turned into a rout, as his body functions shut down one by one.  We transitioned to Hospice care, and the end came peacefully in his sleep.  My efforts turn now to my mother, also a dementia sufferer, as she tries to come to terms with the loss of her companion of 67 years.

Golf has not been on my mind these past few weeks.  I leave in a few minutes for my first practice round in over a month.  I will be accompanied by my usual posse; Clank, Shank, Foozle, Flip, and Chili-dip.  Most of them also plan to travel with me this Sunday to central Ohio.  Yes, I will be there.

You are all encouraged to smile and laugh at the antics of my pals, and my very rusty golf game.  I come not to break par, but for the camaraderie that flows freely at every TST get together.

See you soon.

Sorry for your loss, Marshall.

@Divot Master Sorry for your loss. Assuming that is the elegant man standing beside you on the Swilcan Bridge at the Old Course? Good times. Looking forward to playing with you.

@iacas What tees do you think we will play? Wanting to apply some Lowest Score Wins strategies. Although it will all be thrown out the window since I believe this course has some major elevation changes and everything appears flat with Google Maps. 😄

I can't friggin wait. It looks like I'm in a great group. 

@Divot Master Really sorry to hear about what happened. I am glad that you will be hanging out with us. Nothing like seeing me spray a driver all over the state of Ohio to cheer you up though.

Sorry to hear Marshall. We’ve been through this and it’s very tough.

Yes, that is him.  We were across the pond for a wedding, and this was my 49th birthday present from him.  35 mph wind and spitting rain, cleared up just in time for me to see my tee shot on 17 bounce off the wall of the hotel.  Never to be forgotten.

Thanks to everyone for their kind words.  Mom and I are both holding up well.

And now lets all get back to the pre-round trash talk.

  • The back (black) tees are 6584.
  • The next (blue) tees are 6081.

I would think most will play black, with a few on the blue.

    • Played Quail Brook today, birdied 16 in dramatic fashion. New one for the away composite.
    • I will be brief, since others have weighed in and I echo the vast majority of what they've said (plus I love bullet points).  Naga-Waukee War Memorial - 6 A fun course, architecturally interesting Several nice views Walkable Passes the "I'd play here often" test Club at Lac La Belle - 6.5 Great Parkland golf.  I think the score suffered a little because all the other courses were so unique, but if this place were near my house it'd be one of the better courses available to play publicly. Walkable Firm, well-maintained greens with interesting contours Good combination of tough holes and less-challenging ones Not many real recovery options on a bad shot - most often, you're punching out from trees or laying up from a fairway bunker Passes the "I'd play here often" test  Favorite hole: #16 Lawsonia Links - 8 Unique and visually interesting Walkable Well-maintained greens with interesting contours, with play varying based on hole location (2) Par-3's were too long for me to really enjoy playing them Too many blind tee shots Some of the most fun approach shots I've had to play Passes the "I'd drive a couple hours to play here" test Favorite hole: #7 Mammoth Dunes - 8 Visually stunning Walkable Huge greens and fairways Turns out, I really enjoy "resort golf".  Separation value (which @iacas) referred to above is different for a 14-hcp...I liked that a wider range of shots were rewarded, but you still have to hit the ball solidly. Passes the "I'd drive a long way to stay/play here again" test Sand Valley - 8.5 Visually stunning Walkable Huge greens and fairways This is an aspirational course for me - breaking 90 the second day, even from an easier set of tees, felt like a real accomplishment...something I had to work damn hard for.  This is the kind of course I want to be good enough to play well.  At the end of the day, that's what ticked it 0.5 above Mammoth Dunes. Passes the "I'd drive a long way to stay/play here again" test
    • Our school district announced that they are going back to masks. It will be required for anyone under the age of 11, and then strongly recommended for anyone not vaccinated and recommended for anyone vaccinated. My wife (vaccinated) will likely wear one. My son will have to wear one. Honestly, I’m a little relieved. I think it’s the right choice, given the circumstances. There are probably better ways to do it, but they would involve mandating the vaccine for students and staff. I’m betting that’s coming before the start of 2022, but this is good enough in the interim. 
    • Working with my instructor on some simple grip and setup issues. I actually shortened my driver shaft and regripped with the same grip(gotta love pure grips) after testing some things out. I then added a bit of throw in the DS as mentioned in the last post to get some nice high ball flights with lots of carry and no more bottom half strikes. I am really liking the extension post impact, might need to work on the upper center getting a bit more forward but good progress for now. I don't need as much of a Bubba move as @saevel25 pointed out that I had at SV to counter an over rotating clubface. This will be counted as my yearly swing thread post with video. 😉  
    • This drill will help more for that. Try and keep the right elbow from bending more than 90 degrees too.
