Played there a few years ago. Played the Ocean course one day and the Nicklaus (Turtle Point) the next day. The day we played the Ocean course there was very little wind so I didn't think it was really all that hard. The next day at Turtle, the wind really picked up (and the temperature dropped about 15 degrees) and that course was brutal. I kinda wish it had been the other way around.

I'm really hoping to see Lee Westwood use his Ping Fetch putter to take his ball out of the hole.  I would enjoy that!

LOL  Yes..., and Pine Valley just looks like a little pitch and putt course.

Are they trying to get people to WANT to play the course with that video? It kind of gives me a sense of dread...

I know -  I think it would be very possible to lose three balls on every hole. And that's if you picked up after losing your third.

But @Bucki1968thinks it's pretty easy so I'm sure we'll see him contending on the weekend. 🤣

If you want to see a lot of videos of shots at the practice rounds, check out CountryClubCollection's Instagram stories. Do it quickly though, videos will get deleted soon.

John Daly grew a lot of beard.

Jordan Speith has a huge what's the name of the company I can't remember urgent, no Under Armor logo on the back of his shirt.

~7800yds. I don’t care if it was a vacuum. That’s hard.

Dude is getting ready for ZZ Top tour.

McIlroy and Fleetwood in sync.

Like in the Indiana Jones movie, "X marks the spot!"

I hope they don’t give too much tv time to Daly. Just had enough of him and his silly brand. Nice he’s given to some charities but damn…it’s just gotten old for me.

    • From what I've heard him say in interviews, it comes from the fact that he drills loads of punch shots, and it just kind of stuck in the full swing... It does work for him and I assume his coaching staff are cool with it, but I'm fully invested in the idea that what works for pros might not be a good idea for the rest of us mortals. I've seen some coaches say that working on post-impact positions (such as "straighten your arms in the follow-through") can lead to tension, which can be harmful. I certainly notice some tension when doing this finish in a full swing (it feels as if I need to decelerate the club more consciously),  but at first glance it hasn't had any negative effect on my shots, but rather the opposite...
    • Looks good to me too. It obviously works well for him. I suppose it keeps the ball under the wind better for those European courses?  I happen to like his putting grip as well….I’ve adapted it lately
    • I really like Tommy Fleetwood's three-quarter finish, both aesthetically and in terms of the feeling of control it provides. I haven't found any good technical discussions on potential trade-offs and risks. My current instructor is not against it, but he hasn't elaborated on the topic.  I plan to do a little statistical experiment where I try a three-quarter vs. a full finish at the range. In the meantime, what are your thoughts?
    • It's not the handicaps we're concerned about....we know that's going to be accurate. It's the weekly and overall year-end competition we're concerned about. We're thinking average scores will be artificially lower than they actually should be. Players just turn in their gross scores and the software does all the calculating after someone (meaning me) plugs in everyone's gross scores hole by hole. There's no way 99% of these guys would be able to figure out which holes they get strokes on and how many. Since I'm considered the numbers guru, I'm the one elected to figure this stuff out and will ultimately be the one who makes the decision (and get the bitching afterwards). I'm leaning towards agreeing with @iacas though.   
    • 84 today at RiverBend from the whites.  Today I decided to play “worst ball”, using two balls off the tee (one white, one high vis), the second shot(s) would be from the worst of the two drives, then taking the worst shot of those, do the same.  Also could not use the driver, fairway or hybrid except only when teeing.  This meant irons/wedges all the way in.  Third part was that I would change balls after 6 ans after 12.  Three sets of different balls should make things more interesting. Thought I had made a big mistake doing this as I was double bogie on 1 & 2 for 4 over.  Too heavy with irons, especially the 5.  Went bogie, bogie, par, bogie to be 6 over thru 6.  Time to apply the next kink in the game as I swapped the ProV1X balls for Top Flite Hammer Control balls (yeah 2pc cheapies).  7-9 were bogie - par - bogie to finish the front 8 over at 44 off a par 36.  Started the back nine par - bogie - par. Irons coming around and I am starting to feel better about this exercise.  Third set of balls now in play at 13, Titleist DT series balls, just because I had some.  Bogie - par - par - bogie - bogie - bogie.  Closed out the back 5 over for a 40 off a par 35. Stats were dismal, 4 of 14 fairways hit (would have been much better as I had a good number of “better” drives that were in the short stuff), 2 of 18 GIR (again playing the “worst” had me playing less than optimal shots).  Putting was decent with 29 putts.  A lot of that was due to scrambling to make par - work w/short irons and wedges in the backyard paid off.   This is for me one of the better on course tests I can do.
