If the East team wins, it's gonna have to be Coke Zero

Please no, that is one of the nastiest drinks ever made. YUCK!

Haha, I wouldn't know. @iacas is rather fond of it.

The ACTUAL Newport Cup...

Now I could raise that with a little bit of dignity, that other thing on the other hand... I would avoid like the plague!

I created and added some little badges to everyone's profile that I'm currently aware is a candidate for one of the teams.

If I've missed anyone, please let me know.

Mike and I have these badges:

@mvmac thanks for directing me to this. Might be a tough one to pull with getting married in October.....but Im headed to Vegas next week so if I somehow win some cash I might be able to swing it. Every dollar this year feels like it's going towards building our house and the wedding...but I should have a pretty good read by June when teams are picked. I'll stay active ITT and keep me as a tentative slot for now.

    • This is the concept I wanted to be noticed. I can recheck the numbers to make them more accurate.  The closer you get to the hole, the more the height of the player affect the reading of the putt and the system starts to diverge from reality. Aiming to the low part of the hole in short putts is a way to patch the method so that it gets closer to reality. Only using it at ball heigth, as camilo villegas used to read lines, is going to give you the exact distance away from the hole to aim at.   
    • I stepped off 10' from a wall electrical outlet this morning when I read it and held up two AimPoint fingers at about stimp 10… and got a little over 8" (because I was 10' and not 9').
    • Ah, got it. That makes sense.  I'll measure mine at the course tomorrow, I suspected it to be in that 6-12" range for 2% at 9 feet which matches what you said too, certainly nowhere close to 27".   
    • Yeah, @klineka, I get that he's just basically saying this: He's just saying the top and bottom lines are not the same length. He just seems to have missed or be off on two or three things: AimPoint is in percentage slope, not degrees. Ain't no way a 2% putt is breaking 27" from 9'. You cross over to using the low edge of the hole inside of about 6-8'. Here are some 2% putt break amounts (number is from the high side of the hole and is rounded to the whole inch, all putts are level — 90° to the slope): 9', stimp 10: 8" 9', stimp 12: 11" 9', stimp 8: 5" 24', stimp 10: 27" You have to get out to 24' to get 27" of break. Now, 2° is 3.5% slope, and… at stimp 10 and 90° a 9' putt is aimed 18" high. Still not 27", so I don't know where he's getting that.
