We need a 4 day tournament or something from this website. It is the only way to clear up how everyone actually plays. Let's all meet up play a couple rounds of scramble and an individiual event. then the winner can say whatever they want about their swing.

Let me know when you have the tee times made and have booked my travel arrangements.

People have proposed this sort of thing several times before, and they always die before they happen. Use the search function to find out why.

Pick a course, get it pre-paid and people will show up. Hell if the goofy golf channel am tour gets people to travel I don't see why people wouldnt for this. We all have friends who play too and could bring them.

it's a solid idea, however just this spring we tried to get people from the Chicago area together for a golf outing.  We had 3 pages of people that said they were interested.  I took the initiative and organized a round for the beginning of the season, one other player actually made it out.  A few weeks later, somebody else tried, nobody was available.  After that, nobody even bothered posting to the thread.

If we can't get a group of people that live in the same city together for a single round on a saturday a 2-3 day 4 round event isn't likely to happen.

Hey!  The Am tour is fun!  (I don't really travel for it, as I've played 6 tournaments pretty much all in my back yard this year)

And there have been a few successful regional get-togethers of people on this site.

Those of us in Southern California are going to be having our 4th this coming October, and a bunch of guys in the Ohio/Pennsylvania area put one together just a couple of weeks ago.

But a National one?  Yeah, that would be tough.  (Unless you want to hold it in Socal!) ;)

I am not saying it isn't fun. I just can't believe people pay SOO much for a round of golf. A one day tournament you have to pay membership then like $125.00 and take a day off work.. Play a weekend Amateur event that is two days it is 150 or less, 2 rounds, and on the weekend. I just think they rip people off is my only bout against it.

Okay. Book your tickets.

Next August 7-10 at Whispering Woods Golf Club in Erie, PA.

One "get to know everyone" scramble on the 7th, and individual competition with 85% handicaps on the days that follow.

Entry fee is $10 + greens fees/carts. The $10 will go directly to the prize pool.

The winner, by my estimations, will walk off with a cool $30 or so (50% of the total purse).

I feel that will be a prime time for me to come up and work with you guys and then go out for some golf!  I missed the one a few weeks ago and I don't plan on missing the next one!!

Yeah I think Houston TX would be a good central location for this event.

    • It's fine that he apologized. I think better of him for doing that than had he not. But he's still earned a net negative in this whole thing, and I think he was speaking honestly before. He thinks the USGA is punishing him or something, when they're just enforcing the same old rules.
    • For me the range is about coping with some performance anxiety. I have some serious anxiety and obsessive compulsiveness when it comes to anything competitive. And the range allows me the option to freely express my pursuit of excellence. A lot of the time I prefer the range because I can focus inwardly and really feel different things.     
    • Inferno - Struggled to make par. Hanks kept the story going but they left a lot of the charm of the book out. Manchester By The Sea - Birdie. Excellent acting and the accents were much better than some other Boston movies (I'm talking to you Marky Mark). It is not a feel good movie, just to warn those who have not seen it.
    • Just a Sunday morning commentary about selling used clubs and offered trades.  I currently have a set of irons posted for sale locally. For some reason the PGA ValueGuide shows my clubs a little higher than I would have thought. I've checked at Dick's/GolfGalaxy for trade-in value and get different answers depending upon which store I go to and who I talk with. I suspect the sales people and golf department workers are quoting from either the retail column or trade-in column or wholesale column. In any case their offers don't quite get me where I need to be towards a newer set of clubs.    So recently a local guy offered a Scotty Cameron putter in trade and he referred to the PGA guide to coax me into my clubs plus cash for his putter. I looked up his putter and the valueguide actually shows it slightly less than my clubs, but I suspect an anomoly on my club values. I don't know if he has the head cover for his putter, but I do know that there are too many stolen putters floating around. I'm not saying his putter is stolen, just that when it comes to high demand/priced putters I tend to add caution to my dealings. Anyway, I then looked up reviews on his putter and found one from this site from around 2011 where the general concensus seemed to be marginal or unfavorable for various reasons.    In any case, I passed on the trade offer. But now I'm curious if there is a stolen putter database someplace. And if my clubs don't sell and if I can't get a workable trade-in locally, then I'll just use them this season. Just that sometimes horse-trades get some interesting offers. I recently sold an electric guitar and amp on craigslist and someone offered me a set of china dishes for it, I passed and found a cash buyer, which got me closer to funding new golf clubs.    Anyway, it is Sunday morning, I'm on my first cup of coffee, the local golf show is still a few weeks away, and it snowed yesterday, and in this past week the local temps have hit a high of 71degF and are currently around 19degF. And sometimes I type too much, sorry if I rambled, back to watching a recorded School of Golf and day dreaming of when the local courses open.
