Someone lost their job on this one!

R&A; Touts "Groundbreaking WiFi Network" As Sign Installation Severs Line, Knocking Out Media WiFi!

All I can say I whoever did this is likely looking for a new job today. Fiber repairs are not cheap and the lose of connection probably cause a bit of panic among the media there. It is pretty impressive how quickly it got repaired, but I'm sure that came at a premium price! I've made some goofs in my years working, but never something that was nearly this costly. Anyone every do something this bad and keep their job?

I worked for a large financial operation in the back office as Compliance/Security Mgr. A Nigerian check stealing ring infiltrated us, walking with almost $2MM in checks over a couple months. All the precautions we had in place and still we got hosed. I was nervous then because I would have been an easy scapegoat but I survived and worked with Feds to recover about $1.5MM and put a couple people behind bars.

Wow, I can't imagine something of that scale happening. Kind of makes this fiber fiasco look small potatoes!

It was a crazy situation, about 11 years ago now. Very sophisticated. Recruiting people who would pass background checks, acid-washing checks, moving from house to house so the Feds couldn't catch up to them. The all the negotiations with banks who had ultimately cashed the checks. Very interesting 18-month or so period of my life.

People who should get fired are the ones who didn't map or mark out the line, knowing that infrastructure was being installed there.

I don't know, around here it's the responsibility of the person putting something in the ground to ask about buried lines.

    • This will happen to me when I have the optimal club release. My distance hog is that I don't release the club well into the ball, and I kind of just pull it through. It works, but when I relax and get a good swing with a great controlled release through my hands I can feel the difference and it does go MUCH farther. 
    • A couple of videos and pictures from Turnberry yesterday - didn't play brilliantly, but managed +12 in serious wind, particularly on the front nine. Putting was hard with the new greens and I three putted twice on the front nine for the first time in ages. I also found it very hard in the wind and kept trying to fight it, overthinking things rather than sticking to what I was comfortable with. As a result, I only really found my game with a few holes to play. Highlights were a birdie on the par 5 eighth, an awesome drive on the 10th, which I got on camera, and making the Tom Watson 2009 up and down, having gone over the back as well from near the plaque . The course itself was incredible - the greens haven't yet fully settled in and so there are different speeds all over the place, but it's such a good test. If you don't find the fairway, you can't score.   Very short swings due to crazy amount of wind! Fourth green - with the wind, you have to start the ball off the left of it, pretty much on the ocean...: Second shot into the 7th green. Didn't make the putt (story of the day!): View from the new championship tee for the 9th: Panoramic view from the 10th green. Arguably the most scenic par five anywhere: My Tom Watson 2009 moment captured (sort of - plaque, tee shot and where my 6 iron over the back finished up): Not worth the money, I don't think - hard for it to ever be the case at the price, but I loved every minute of it. It's a great course and deserves to have the Open back soon. Western Gailes today and hopefully my swing is on better form!

    • Count me in. Charlotte is only about an hour away for me, which is no problem.
    • I hit whatever the current TM model was in the spring but really like the AP1's. But I'll do a proper unbiased fitting and see what the results are as in both instances for iron fittings, it's been done by Titleist reps.
