2023 TST Outing (OH/PA/MI/NY/WV) - Join Us May 20 @ Little Mountain!


StuM

Recommended Posts

I understand we are in late Dec. and looking at a larger storm over the holiday (in Michigan) but my mind is on Golf for next year.  I am hoping to coordinate a TST Outing in 2023 and hoping to participate in at least one other TST Outing 

I am starting this thread to solicit interest and begin planning an outing.  I encourage you to post if you are interested and if interested what locales might you be open to.  At this time it is very open ended.

We have members across a wide geographic area and some may need to drive but hopefully we can find somewhat central areas that get a high rates of participation.  It is very possible we have more than one TST Outing in 2023 so do not hold back, if you would like to participate get in on this initial discussion and lets find a way to make it work for as many of us as possible.

My initial thoughts are late May or June 2023 on a Saturday afternoon with an optional Sunday morning round for those that choose to spend the night.  It would need to be a "Rain or Shine" event since planning well out in the future.  One possible area is Cleveland, Ohio vicinity.  That is @ 3 hours from me in Michigan, @ 4 hours from Cincinnati area and not bad from Pittsburg or Western New York.

Question 1: Who is interested in a Cleveland Vicinity TST Outing on Saturday May 20, May 27, June 3, or June 10 with an 2nd optional round on the following Sunday.

  1. @StuM currently 5/20, 5/27. 6/3 and 6/10 all work for me

Question 2: Who is open to coordinating a TST Outing in 2023?

  1. @StuM - I will coordinate 1 outing in Cleveland Area
  2. @StuM - I can assist with one in Michigan if enough are interested.

Question 3: What other areas might you be interested visiting for a TST Outing?

  1.  @StuM - Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania or Kentucky dependent upon date (I do not mind traveling)

Looking forward to a great 2023 Golf Year!

May 27th is my anniversary, so I don't know about that one.

But the others should be good.

I should be healthy enough to go any of those dates.   Since I missed a significant amount of golf in 2022, I'm going to try and make up for lost time in 2023.   Count me in!   

 

@iacas,

I didn't get the @dennyjones notification.   I was just going thru all new comments.

I could make this coincide with my annual Erie trip. The last two outings have been in Ohio. Perhaps @billchao could make it too.

Yeah, that trip this year… let's see… it's good to play before the lessons, mostly, don't you both agree?

As I told @StuM in a DM… Natalie has Nationals through May 12, and then we'll have to move her in to her place in Maryland for her internship, so… the 20th is likely the best looking window for you guys. We wouldn't want to push it to June, that's for sure.

Now that we've moved and my son isn't quite a newborn anymore I should have more time for golf things like this next year. I would be in for 5/20 or 6/10.

5/27 is Memorial day weekend and we usually go to a lake house and 6/3 is my anniversary so would likely be out for both of those weekends.

seems May 20 has potential

Yeah. Playing after lessons tends to be a mess for me.

I’ll pencil it on my calendar. I don’t have any plans as far as I’m aware of.

The mentions don’t work in the topic tags like that. They would have been fine if you did it in the body of the post.

Oh yeah, me too. Sometimes golfing after a lesson I'm a like a palsy victim doing brain surgery with a pipe wrench!

I'm with you on that.  in Oct 2021 Erik changed my grip.  It took a large part of the 2022 season for it to feel natural and I was really messed up for a while.  (OK, I'm still messed up but the grip is less of an issue)

Re-tag everyone, please. "tags" are just for search and stuff, they don't notify anyone of anything.

Like this: https://thesandtrap.com/tags/@iacas/. Literally no results, because nothing is "tagged" with "@iacas". Versus, say, https://thesandtrap.com/tags/tiger/.

I'm so in for this in 2023, though May 20 weekend is out as I'm volunteering at the PGA Championship at Oak Hill. The rest of the dates work. I'm coming from "east side" (finger lakes) but can easily roam as far as Cleveland.

If there are other western/central NY and PA folks here, I'd be up for coordinating a separate event in that region later in the summer.

I've blogged about my wanderings since 2003. I love roaming throughout the USA looking for remote public golf courses to play.

    • There is no requirement for a marker to be a fellow competitor. They are simply a "person responsible for entering a player’s score on the player’s scorecard and for certifying that scorecard."
    • I’ll recount this round more specifically, then answer your question.  1) hit normal, first tee shot, duck hookish drive left of fw. Hit a low, below the trees, 95yd 52 wedge to inside 10ft. Missed the putt.  2) cut drive, still missed ever so slightly left of fw. Put approach to 3ft, made birdie.  3) 2iron to mid fairway, had 130 in and hit pw barely over the green (within 20ft of pin). Hit a putt from the rough as it was straight downhill, made par.  4) par 3, hit front edge of green after a high toe chunk of a tee shot. Couldn’t get up and down. 5) par 5, perfect drive, left with 200 or so in. Missed green to the right but pin high, chipped to a tap in.  6) par 3 missed green short right, chip hit the pin and stopped close.  7) par 5, good drive, had 5iron in, missed slightly right but carried the bunker. 2 putt birdie 8- Good drive, missed fairway, but it’s a short hole and ended short right of green. 65yd pitch to inside 10ft. made the putt.  9) pounded the drive, approach from 45yds ended up inches from the hole. Birdie 10) missed drive right into the trees, punched out, had 105yds in and put my 56 to 4ft and made par. Key par there.  11) par 5, drive missed right of fw but still fine, hit 4iron to inside 20ft, 2 putt birdie.  12) par 3, thought i hit it perfect, bit landed mid green and spun to front. Had a tough uphill putt from 40ft or so. Made par.  13) par 5, good drive but slightly left of fw, hit 2iron to pin high right of green. Chip to 5ft, made the slider for birdie.  14) 315yd par 4, drove green (must have had a lucky kick, I’ve been plugging in front approach all winter), ended within 15ft and made the putt for eagle. 15) cut 2iron down left side fw, tucked right pin so did my normal draw off it to middle of green. Had 25-30ft, made par.  16) par 3, 150yds, tucked right pin again, hit 15-20ft away, made par.  17) hit hooky 2iron, but ok in left rough, had 100yds in slightly downwind, hit my 60 8ft past, made birdie.  18) hit 2iron hard down right but hit trees and kicked, luckily, slightly left back into fairway, had 130yds in and had my 52 to 4ft, made birdie.  That is 7/14 fairways and 14/18 greens. Basically the driver was hit well, and for the most part, not in trouble and leaving short wedges in. From there I hit wedges really well, including many of the chip/pitch distances. When my game is around even par, there’s definitely no putts made and approaches aren’t as close. Mid to upper 60s means better approaches and some putts. Low 60s is good approaches with more putts made. Certainly making birdies on the 4 par 5s is important as well as making virtually no bogies.  I’ve said it before about my game but when my driver is doing good, I’m doing good. If it’s not, I’m not. My full/partial wedges are the best part of my game. Pitching/chipping is getting a ton better. Putting is a lot better but variable depending on conditions. The game just happens to be aligning more the last few months. 
    • Day 50 - Used MirrorVision to watch/film swings, focusing on my impact position.
    • 62 is cool as hell. Damn
    • Great playing! Curious when you say "good approaches" on like 1,2,17,18 that resulted in 3 birdies, what kinds of distances are you hitting for the approach shots and how far are you leaving for your birdie putts?  Maybe a better way to ask is during this great run of golf you've been playing obviously you've been doing a lot of things well, but is there a common theme among the really low rounds that you hadn't had prior to this stretch? Like has it been a case of stuffing everything to 5 feet, making a ton of long putts, not missing a fairway, etc.
