So it this sucker gonna be on Golf Channel or ESPN?

That would be COOL! For now, I think it's just:

Twitter: https://twitter.com/the_sand_trap/

Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/thesandtrapgolf

For those who are not good at the internets (and if there's interest), I may post scoreboard updates from what I've gathered through social media above. No promises, but I would post here on this thread, if I am able to.

Below is the "scoreboard" we have tentatively worked out for now.

I don't want to interfere in their event in any way, so if they shut the idea of periodic scoreboard updates down, I'd get that they had reasons to.

I'll be VERY leery of posting bogus info, so if it gets confusing with the status and I lose track of the tweets, I'll let everyone know and not post any scores. I really don't want to inadvertently impact their on-course strategy if they somehow get bogus scoreboard update from me!!!!

I'm also not looking to steal anyone's thunder, so if the Newport Cup teams prefer to have one daily summary with a scoreboard, I'd respect that too.

The thought was that posting here periodically might garner more excitement. Might also be fun to review at the end to see snapshots of where the competition stood.

Periscope? It's not just iOS now, you can view on a desktop browser (not sure about mobile.) Or post vids to Instagram/Twitter. Or I guess could just look on Game Golf.

If any of ya'll have a water shot, it is required that you video and post it. :-D

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

Realtime updates would be awesome!

Not to nitpick, but if we were to assume the top of the page was north, wouldn't it make sense to put West and east on there proper compass positions?

The West is hosting. It's customary to list the home team second.

Every one of our sponsors has been incredibly generous, especially Pure and Ping for inviting us to spend time with them. It's been an exciting day, and we haven't even hit a shot in competition yet.

We started the day with a visit to the Pure Company. I had taken photos, but they are somewhere lost on my SD card. Hopefully, I will find them. Anyway the visit was a pleasure. We spoke with the design engineer and learned the process to develop grips. We then toured the facility, and watched the process of Pure grips being made. Pure was gracious to re-grip everyone's clubs while we were there. Many thanks to Erik, Mike and Pure Company for the tour and products. Hopefully photos to follow when found. Club Rat

[URL=http://thesandtrap.com/content/type/61/id/131635/] [/URL] We then traveled to the Ping facility for a VIP tour. It was truly an amazing experience. It's been a long day, but wanted to post photos. Guys will post their experience and details later. Again, Erik and Mike have provided all of us with a truly remarkable day. Enjoy the photos, Many thanks to Ping. Club Rat

    • 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.
