I am out that weekend for sure, the mere mentioning of missing Halloween to play golf would make me more than unpopular around the house. Plus I enjoy taking my kiddo out trick or treating.

I would be in on any non-holiday weekend though if you came up with a different date. I will add you are going to have a difficult time filling 16 spots on halloween weekend.

... I HAVE to go trick-or-treating with my kids! It's a non-negotiable.

... No way I'm missing Halloween with the kid.

... Plus I enjoy taking my kiddo out trick or treating.

Those statements, right there, make all you A-OK in my book ... that's Awesome ... I thought I was the only dude that liked to see kids running around in costumes begging for candy!

I'm out for simple fact that I can't afford a flight to vegas ...

Like I said before any non-holiday weekend would work. Las Vegas is cheap and easy for me to get to so Nov 7-9 or 14-16 work fine.

One of those two weekends could possibly work for me.

I might be able to swing this, the Nov. 14-16 would probably be

better but the other doesn't necessarily rule me out immediately either.

I coach two Soccer teams so I'm out until the weekend before Thanksgiving.

Perhaps there will be another Sand Trap Open either near San Fran, or on the East Coast after December.

It would be cool to make this an annual or semi-annual thing at different clubs throughout the country for members who can't make trips across the country.

I would love to get completely demoralized by fellow members.

Curious - what's the latest tally on this?

I don't know, but I'm withdrawing. I think it'd be better to try to set something up in March or something.

For me to have any chance of doing something like this, it will have to be in the spring or later. I just flew to PA, and it will be awhile before the finances allow for another flight.

    • Why does Rory struggle with consistency?
    • I would say it depends on how the 3W distance works with the length of the holes he is going to be playing. If there are par 4s around 430 for example I think he would be foolish not to carry a club that enabled him to get there in 2. Agree however that flexibility goes up drastically if not carrying putter and with the tournament several weeks away there is theoretically enough time to get comfortable with using a low lofted metalwood or bladed wedge. Really would be ideal to know the course to help strategize.
    • i would suggest a more lofted fairway wood or hybrid since a 3 wood needs a good lie to be hit off the fairway.  If you are in the rough or in a bad lie, then the 6 iron would be your only choice.  A 5 wood might be shorter but is more flexible and adaptable in the types of lies you can play it from.  The iron for me would be anything from a 6 to 8 iron depending on your comfort and distance.  The wedge you should consider whether you can play a slightly less lofted wedge, like a gap wedge maybe.  However, the less loft you have the more skill you need in playing different shots.  Hitting a sand wedge is easier but it does mean most of your shots around and close to the green will be high lofted shots. The putter is the one club where I question whether you truly need it.  If you can putt with something like the wood/hybrid in your bag, that gives you far greater options and flexibility.  However, it would need practice since we rarely putt with any other club. In my case a 4 club choice would be 4 hybrid, 7 iron, PW and SW/LW depending on course conditions.  I would putt with the hybrid and use that for most tee shots.  On my home course, there are maybe two holes where I couldn't reach a green in regulation with those clubs.   Essentially long par 4's where I need to hit driver off the tee.
    • Are the 512 replies to this topic about Rory being overrated or has this become a Rory Catch all topic? If the latter, the topic title should maybe reflect it. Good to see him win again. His first since 2019. 2020 wasn’t his best year and an up-and-down 2021 so far with missing the cut one week and being top 10 the next.  But that has been Rory all along and maybe what spurred this topic: his inconsistent performance. One week he’s hitting it as well as anyone has and the next he’s out of it and struggling. His talent is undeniable, but inconsistency is keeping him down.
    • I'm not an expert but the swing in the video seemed like you did not bring the upper body around quickly enough. Is it possible your focus on not firing the shoulder right away is causing too much lag there? Swing is about tempo so too slow can be an error just like too fast.
