Drive was beautiful.

The Arizona sky, the sky is bigger there. It took my breath away. That doesn't happen everyday.

Another piece I hear when in the great state of AZ:

Kill slow play. Allow walking. Reduce ineffective golf instruction. Use environmentally friendly course maintenance.

Your avatars are defeating the purpose of an "Avatar."

Maybe make them unique so they actually serve the purpose of what an avatar is meant to do?  Right now the site is very awkward.

The Newport Cup ends at the end of the week. Regular avatars will be back before you know it.

Yeah, it's just like wearing your team color shirts when you go to see the 'game'...

To be precise, the Newport Cup ends at 6pm Pacific Time this Friday. By that point, the West Coast lead will be so commanding that the Saturday singles will merely be a formality.

No its not...  Read what an avatar is meant to be.

You are not identifying individuals at "the game."

I get that you are supporting a side, but think it could have been done in a way that keep the site users unique.

Everyone's name is still there.

Names are not avatars....

And yet they keep users unique ;-)

Names are not visual representations of a users unique identity...

The point behind an avatar is to recognize that person easily because of their graphic ID.   When everybody has the same image the entire point of an avatar is ruined.

The support of the Newport cup team would be more appropriate in the Signature line for the user.

Cool, I am prophesizing that you will come into the great fortune of meeting some very tidy people from the EST zone.. ;-)

This might be a foolish question but is there a post that shows who is on what team?

There are but they're lost back there a few pages somewhere.  Here's the easy route: http://thesandtrap.com/t/83905/ping-2015-newport-cup-prediction-contest-win-a-g30-driver/0_30

    • There's more grass in them now than shortly after the renovation. It grows over time. Cool. Here's the deal we'll make you. If you're right, we'll remove your restrictions. If you're wrong, you'll never again be permitted to whine about how "easy" a golf course played (particularly given that you wouldn't likely break 90 at it), and if you do, you're gone forever.
    • Looks alot  like those  "native areas" a few  years  back that were supposed to be tough but ended  up being  just another fairway shot  unless you were  very  unlucky and  got right  behind a tuft  of  grass. I  predict  -15 for the win. Someone will be  -8 at the end  of the day tomorrow.
