Haha if only... But looks like he's playing very solid. Almost 75% fairway hits this tournament. Man I hope so much he will play this whole tournament high on the leaderboards. He really needs a good finish on such a tournament once.

Are there many golf courses in The Netherlands? I lived in Germany for a few years ('86-'88), about 2 hours from the border so went quite a few times but don't ever recall seeing a course or a sign to a course there.

I guess not as many as in USA, but I don't feel like that there are not a lot. From my house alone 2 courses within 10 minutes, en where I play and train now it's 25 minutes away. I think we have a fair amount of golf courses. Mix of park, link and forrest.

Just being a father since 2,5 months, I really should go to bed now. Hope to see some birdies when I wake up, playing very solid again and in top 10 now. Come on!

Holy cow, our boy Joost used to be a ski jumper.

Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat? In Holland. Anything over 5 metres is considered mountainous

Ha, no doubt, I was surprised too; just heard it on the telecast.

It did occur to me that if Joost makes a move then they'll be all sorts of researchers desperately scrambling around for information on him tomorrow. Well Google index things based on content and recent activity amongst other stuff, so if we keep posting Joost numerous times and accompany it with spurious facts (or darn right lies) we could start something

Joost Luiten excelled in science whilst at school, founding the Uttrecht space agency and building 'Tulip One', the Netherlands first rocket from the spare parts of his sisters bicycle in his fathers shed. The rocket was housed inside a windmill (95% of dutch people live in windmills so it never aroused suspicion). Although it was regarded as a pioneering adventure, Joosts pet dog, and test pilot, did make the ultimate sacrifice when Tulip one failed to reach orbit on its only launch. Joost, filled with remose for the astronaut abandoned space exploration and took up golf.

The tulip isn't indigenous to the Netherlands incidentally and originates from Afghanistan

    • Yeah, I get there every year, or more, but it still seems like yesterday that we were all together, relative strangers for a day, good friends just a couple of days later.  This year, I'll be spending 3 weeks at Talamore, 1 week with a group of guys, the second week for Thanksgiving with my wife, and then staying another week in order to attend the USGA Rules Workshop at Pine Needles.  I'll be interested to try the Top Tracer, and to see the new short-game area at Talamore.  
    • It only seems like about a month ago...oh wait, cause I've been going every August since then. 😉 We moved our annual Myrtle Beach trip to Talamore because of how awesome this event was and have not looked back. https://coachjimsc.wixsite.com/talamore2022 Also Talamore has added Toptracer to the driving range and our group was picked to be the first guinea pigs. Talamore Golf Resort (@talamoregolfresort) • Instagram reel Talamore Golf Resort shared a post on Instagram: "📅 Opening Day 📅 Toptracer range officially opens Friday, September 9th. 🔘 For now, all times must be booked in advance by calling the Talamore Villa Office at...
