Knowing you, I'm going to guess you went to the gym. 

Would you think different if my screen name were RFKLOVESCHET? 😜

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.

Ah... yeah... and I'd be a bit worried to be honest.

Whoever chose this course (me) should be punished.

And @georgep too.

Apologies.

What was wrong with it?

I played there one time last fall and it was in decent shape back then but haven't been up there yet this year.

I think nearly every tee shot on the front nine was a blind tee shot. Then you have every 2nd shot on the par 5 being a blind 2nd shot/layup. There was a handful of 2nd shots on par 4's that were blind. It wasn't enjoyable. The back nine was much better.

Yes the back nine was much better. Only two blind shots.

I enjoyed the course. Really enjoyed the company. Did not play well. Did hit a handful of really good shots. Generally followed shortly thereafter by a horrible shot. It was a great time.

I had a great time - it was good to see everyone, and I really enjoy when we get this group together (almost) every year.

I've played a lot of courses with changes in character (some tree lined holes, some stretches more open), but I can't remember playing one with such a vastly different "feel" between the nines. You play 10 holes in a row with drastic elevation changes, blind shots, limbs overhanging tee boxes...and then you walk onto the 11th tee and see a 50-yard-wide fairway and the next 6 holes laid out in front of you in open field.

As I said to @iacason the 15th hole (or so): "I really liked the second course we played today much better than the first."

My sentiments exactly. It was great getting together with everyone for sure.

11 is the (goofy) par three. But your point stands @Hardspoon.

Ah, right - it was #12, the par 5, where it really opens up.  Hey, we're lucky I even remember it at all!

Had a great time as always. @georgep @Hardspoon @saevel25despite our differences (Buckeye vs Wolverine), nothing unites a team quite like battle, and those first 11 holes were a battle. It was an honor to claim victory with you. 

Thanks @iacasfor another great outing. See everyone next year.

To all who attended: you have your "outing" badge already, right? I think so, but thought I'd double-check to make sure.

Sorry for whatever role I played in choosing the course (none). But I still don’t get what’s so important about seeing your ball land. Matt had several that no one saw land (and maybe they never did).

It was great to see everyone yesterday!  Next year, we’ll find a flatter course.

Maybe one with fewer than nine blind shots in the first eight holes and fewer 210-yard par fours. 🙂

Also, photos!

    • I found that very interesting.  I'll defer to the rules guys on here but I can't think of anything in the rules saying you need to dry your clubface if it is naturally wet.  I suppose you couldn't use a spray bottle of water any more than you can use vaseline, WD40 or 10W40.

    • When I say "as one" I mean should you rotate them both at the same speed, so that they both will match up in their rotation on the backswing?    Reason I ask is because since the spine can rotate more than the hips, should the spine be rotated more quickly - or should you rotate them at the same pace, then when the hips reaches it's limit, keep rotating the spine until it turns 90* while the hips stay in the fixed position   Here's a pic of what I mean, you can see his spine is rotated far more than his hips, because the hips have reached their limit 
    • You can use it. But you gotta pay me a royalty. 
    • Okay I played 18 early this morning. First one out. They sent us off the back, as they had a middle school (9 hole) tourney going off the back at 8AM. I finished my 18 holes and went over to see where the middle schoolers were, and how they were doing. I watched them play a couple of holes. Every last one of them dragged their driver up to the teebox. Not neccessarily off the teebox, but always onto the teebox.  So, I was curious and asked one of the parents there. "What's up with dragging the driver?" The parent told me the kids had been coached to do that. When asked why I was told that dragging the driver to the teebox covers the face in dew. The idea being the wet driver face will reduce spin off the face.  "Does that actually work?" I asked. "No idea, but they've been told to do it."  A million things went through my mind.  Firstly, Is that legal?  Secondly, if its not legal, what kind of coach teaches middle schoolers to break the rules? I would think at middle school level you are just trying to get them to enjoy the game and play by the rules.
