Ok guys, is it time to start planning out next outing/taunting all the people in cold weather states? I know there was talk at the last outing of playing a round in early to mid January (you know, when its only in the 70s). Chime in in interested with potential locales, dates, etc. Also, let everyone out there know how nice it is playing in January =)

March could be okay too. My birthday is the 23rd. :)

Yes, @turtleback we'd love to have you!  Join us!!!!  Not counting you yet, here is the updated list considering the "events" of this morning ... @iacas

Ok so for future outings remember the point of this stuff is to play in different groups with different people

Wait a minute, FL, AZ, TX, LA could do the same thing.

The most important thing is, where?

I would vote for Hidden Valley in Norco, CA.

I can't make any commitment at this time. New baby will be here. Plus I have a trip to Taiwan pending in Jan before the Chinese New Year. The first quarter of 2014 is going to be real crazy schedule wise.

I have no idea what my available dates are yet.  We have guests in town from New York sometime in the middle of January, and I have a couple of tournaments I hope to play in January and February.  Unfortunately, I don't yet have the exact dates for any of those.

---------------------------------------

I know that most of us are from OC/LA but we still haven't made a date in San Diego yet.  I wonder if people would be interested in something in North San Diego County?  Here are a few to perhaps check out ...

The Crossings ... http://www.thecrossingsatcarlsbad.com/carlsbad.asp?id=182&page;=3854

Rancho Bernardo Inn ... http://www.jcgolf.com/course/rancho-bernardo/

Arrowood ... http://www.arrowoodgolf.com/about/

And there are a jillion more. ;)  I realize that the Riverside/Corona/Norco area is probably the most central for everybody, but just thought I'd throw a few SD ideas out there too.

Just looked at Drew's link. Crossings, would be nice, too. I'm up for it, but for those of us in the LA area, we should make it later in the morning so we don't all have to book hotels. I might overnight it just for a mini family vacation.

For me, January is a pretty good month. No vacations or work trips planned currently and unlike Beachcomber, my wife isn't due until March. I don't have my personal schedule set that far down the road, but I am guessing that most weekends and locations would work fine for me.

Depending on how many folks we get, I think mixing up the format is a great idea. A Ryder Cup style format (two teams) where we send out group in competing 4-ball matches would be a lot of fun, but I am game for anything.

January sounds good to me. I'd be for mixing up the format as well if for no other reason than to try something new. It might be kind of cool to try do some match play or something like that.

I'd be for doing it in the SD area as well. There are a lot of nice courses out there and we haven't been out that way yet. Coming out my way (Palm Springs area) could also be an option. The weather is perfect out here although it could be a little on the pricey side. If that's something you'd guys would like to look into, however, let me know and I'll call some of the courses up.

Mike, Can you get us discounts to Torrey Pines?

I'll even go midnight

Sure, I'll give the new mayor a call ;-)

@mvmac

Since Erik brought it up, is this something that would be possible? What kind of cost would we be looking at?

No idea what Erik is talking about lol  I could look into it, I think my guest fees are about $70 but not sure if I could bring out four groups on the weekend, Sunday afternoon would be probably be the best time, no chance on Sat or Sun morning.  They usually schedule "outside" tournament event on Monday.

    • They could leave the Masters bubble and focus on total career achievements, but maybe that deviates from the intention. Eventually they may have to choose players who only won once. «First on the tee, Patrick Reed!». Or maybe they’ll be off with the whole thing. There aren’t that many multiple winners these days. Phil, Bubba and Tiger are the only ones with wins this millennia.
    • I’ve had my Leupold GX-2 since 2010. Don’t remember the price, but perhaps around $200-300. Not a big investment if divided per year or round. I’ve spent way more on balls. It’s not a replacement for the course guide, which I always want to carry if they got one. The rangefinder is a distance measuring tool and doesn’t show the layout of a hole. Many courses around here doesn’t have much in ways of markers. Typically 200, 150 and 100 meters. So the on-course aid hasn’t been affected by the tools. I used to have to study the guide, look for one of those three markers and try to walk off and guesstimate distances. Now I can focus on my approach, where to aim and quickly get the distances I need. I play faster and better with it.
    • Yeah, @iacas, here’s another article echoing the last one you posted: CDC Studies 'Breakthrough' COVID Cases Among People Already Vaccinated COVID-19 vaccines are highly effective but don't always provide perfect protection. Some...  
    • Lesson coming up on Thursday 4/15: After 5-6 weeks of really good ball striking (by my standards), full swing has regressed. After my last lesson, I had some backswing and transition weight/pressure shift feels that worked really well. I was hitting almost everything with center-face contact (within tolerance of a mid-handicap player), AoA and launch angles were all in the right window, ball was going where I aimed it, shot shape was reliable, distance improved. Then in my last round suddenly I had no idea where the ball was going to go. I have a little deal with myself, that if I can get my index below 10 and keep it there, I am getting fitted for a new driver, so I am a little miffed at what I experienced last round. I doubt there was a sudden change (maybe there was, who knows), but what I suspect is that there was some slower, less noticeable regression that was going on, that finally transitioned into a significant on course problem. Putting and short game are still good enough (nothing special), so that at least I am not losing any strokes with these elements. I've gone back to basics for now with practicing, and I don't want to over-self-diagnose any issues and use a shotgun approach to problem solving, so happy that I have a lesson this week to figure out what's gone wrong.
