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!

    • Day 274: worked on my priority pieces with a revised feel rehearsal. Results were an improvement. Trying to feel the left leg straighten and push the left hip back from A5 through impact. 
    • Yes - I saw those figures. I'd love to say it's unbelievable..........😘
    • From an early July report/poll... see below:  Shorty, in the U.S. the current government is already unpopular with the Republicans so it's kind of an "I don't care" situation.  For the most part, the vaccinated are happy with their government.   "The poll found that while 86% of Democrats have received at least one COVID-19 vaccine shot, only 45% of Republicans have. In addition, the survey found that while only 6% of Democrats said they would probably decline the vaccine, 47% of Republicans said they would probably not be inoculated. "  
    • Played again today, a course I played a couple of times before and broke 90 easily. Shot 86 with 2x ob and one water hazard. The work that I put in the last year really shows and I feel that on the right course on the right day I could break 80 even this year. It probably won’t happen but that’s the goal for next season.    I see that I must work on 100 meters and in. So on one of the hardest holes which is a 440 yard par 4 I drove the ball over 310 and then had a pitching wedge in. It was a bit of an awkward stance but I was just left of the green. Almost chipped in but then messed up the comeback putt and instead of an easy par I made a bogey.    Maybe I’m being too hard on myself looking at the tour averages but I feel like that’s one area of the game I need to clean up - no 3 putts and more up and downs. And I really need to put more work / decide on how I want to pitch and then really let that sink in and finally get the distances for all 4 wedges for 1/2, 3/4 and full swings printed out and stick them on the clubs. 
    • Birdied #4 and #12 at Sand Valley last week, as well as #9 at The Links Course at Lawsonia. The 4th hole is the only new addition to my away composite.
