20 posts in this topic

I am looking for the following tournaments all year long:

1) Individual Stroke Play events

2) One Person Scrambles

3) Cash Scrambles

4) Calcutta Tournaments

If you guys hear of anything coming up let us know.. lets get some traveling going on.

Here is my example:

I have a 2 person Cash Scramble coming up at Innsbrook Resort in Wright City, MO on August 24.

I have an individual club championship coming up in Waterloo IL at Annbriar golf course on September 21st.

And Sunday I have a 27 hole individual event that pays some good cash at Birch Creek Golf Course in Union, MO

To be honest I don't know of anything like that at all in our area. Once a year we have the city men's championship that lasts a week, but as for other stuff I haven't seen/heard of anything.

Really? No Cash tournaments.. those are the best because you have a chance to get paid to play on those days.

The only things I saw when I did a quick search were about 2 hours away. But those are also amature competitions so I don't think they can pay out anyway. Either way, I'm not good enough to get into anything like that. Only handicapped one I know of was the city tournament that happens in June here. I may try my hand at that one next year if I can get even a little more consistent with my game.

If it is flighted, I say go for it.. you never know where you might fall. I want to play a full schedule of amateur events next year around 20 events hopefully and see where I can get. First I need to win a club championship here or there or qualify for something. Making a cut at a pro event I played in this year is a goal for me too.

Calm down Rulesman, I am new and put it in the wrong thread and people responded to it. I reposted in golf talk.. Obviously you are the guy that is all about rules and this must have pushed your buttons being in the wrong room. Sorry about that.

I think the vast majority of us probably use the 'new posts' function and hence, have no idea which sub-forum we are in at any given time.

Next time, don't just repost it. Send one of us mods/admins a PM or even flag it as spam. I deleted the other thread, and am moving this one to Golf Talk.

LOL Really you guys have never heard of a one person scrable.. there are a couple of formats but basically it is one person who gets two shots on every shot including putts. The only trick is that if you hit a second shot, you must take it most of the time. But I have played some where the drive is the only one that if you hit a second drive, you have to take it and get two shots from all other areas. It is like having a free mulligan on every shot. they are my favorite

Nope, never heard of it before.  But then, I tend to completely tune out anything related to any kind of scramble format......

    • I think an active lead knee (or both knees) certainly helps with sequencing. In order for the knee to move forward and around (and straighten) it helps for it to gain some flex and rotate internally on the backswing. Creates some "flow". I basically described what I mean by active knee movement in my previous post in this thread. Like I said, doing the knee stuff in of itself might not be the answer, have to consider how the torso is working to facilitate the motion/pieces. While I love Jack's swing and think there is a lot we can learn from it, he was a special players and he would have been just as good with a swing where he kept the lead heel planted.
    • Quality over quantity! I understand the concept, but 2 grand for 3 wedges? There's no way they out perform vokey or any of your other major wedges enough to warrant those kind of prices! That's just my opinion. You're 100% correct there are people with money to blow who will buy them just to say they did. IMO it's all about the player. Spieth for example could take any wedge and most likely perform better than I ever will be able to. Which I'm sure you will agree to some extent. Just blows my mind at the cost! 
    • I'm still putting my money on you being the bigger head case.  
    • The dude has won 2 majors with glaringly less talent than the other top players....I don't think that happens to a head case. People tend to think otherwise at times because he wears his emotions on his sleeve so vividly, but Spieth's mental game is still more of an asset than anything else for him IMO. With his relatively limited talent, you don't accomplish things that only Jack, Tiger, and Seve have done if you're truly a head case. Reality vs. perception difference here.
    • The site of the 2017 U.S. Open is near my old stomping grounds...I was born about 30 min. away from where Erin Hills was eventually built.  I moved from that area long before the course was even planned, so I've never been there or played it or anything, but I learned some interesting things this evening. I have a good friend up there who works for a limo/shuttle company, and he has been driving people from Madison, Milwaukee and O'Hare to Erin Hills for several days, and he made several comments on how remote the golf course is.  It might not be exactly in the middle of nowhere, but apparently a short drive would get you there. There is only one way in, and one way out.  And these are country roads, not four-lane highways. They announced this site would host the U.S. Open in 2010...seven years ago, and they couldn't get a better road system in place?  I thought that was one of the things that they took into consideration when they scout potential sites?  It sounds like this course was earmarked to host USGA events before it was even built, so if they set out to design a course that would one day host a major, why wouldn't the road infrastructure be included? Anyway, the course itself is a monster...or at least can be, when the stretch it out.  From the blacks it plays 7,800 yds, but it looks like it will play about 7,700 during the tournament.  All four par 5s are over 600 yds, two par 4s are over 500 yds, and two others are over 480.  This is the first time in many years the course will play to a par of 72, which actually gives the guys a chance to make up some ground.
