I work as a Server Administrator in the I.T. department at a pretty large hospital in Sioux Falls, SD. I support MS Windows based file servers and the applications that run on them.

I lived in Sioux Falls for 12 years and graduated from Washington High School in 2002. My home course during high school was Prairie Green and I still love playing it when I go back. I still love that city. A lot of my friends still live there.

Welcome! What courses do you play in the Twin Cities metro (or burbs?).

I worked for Wachovia when it was Wachovia...not First Union with the Wachovia name.

Welcome! What courses do you play in the Twin Cities metro (or burbs?).

I'm in the southwest metro and on a college student's budget. So the par 72 course I most normally frequent is Bluff Creek, off of Pioneer Trail in Chanhassen. My family had a brief one year membership @ Bent Creek Golf Club in Eden Prairie about 3 years back (fastest greens I've ever played on).

Other than Bluff Creek, I do play other courses around the metro area, but seldomly.

I do a few things to make ends meet. My day job is working at a marketing company, selling land in Mexico. The rest of my day is involved with my golf product and my various web sites (dealing with real estate).

Hoping to focus exclusively on the golf product in the near future. Just got my first online store to carry the product.

    • A flushed towering 152 yard 8-iron that never left the pin to a foot and a half on the 17th hole after a solid drive. The ensuing birdie putt completed our two man team match claw back to even after being four down through 10.  Tied 18th and the match but felt like a win.
    • A gross 6 under for a scramble is not that good. I would buy it. Our gross winning score is usually 17-18 under. First time I've heard of a handicapped scramble.
    • Absolutely. If my skills were reversed and I was a better putter than driver of the ball, I would have made that 8-footer. For double bogey  Mine is completely blind because it goes downhill starting basically right at the corner of the dogleg with the fairway sloping left to right. I know the line to take from experience, but just to give you an idea how it sets up, I hit directly over the two trees that the white line on my screenshot passes over, with a draw. I'm pretty sure my ball landed on the left side of the fairway. The safe way is to just hit it 220 to the corner and leave yourself just under 150 into a pretty large green, but there's very little reason not to be aggressive on this hole.
    • Day 24: putting practice at home 
    • And yet we both made par.  Maybe drive for dough isn't accurate after all  Definitely had some helping wind on mind, it was blowing 15-20mph all day. Yours looks like a fun hole too. Looks like a couple different ways it can be played.
