I have a tee time tomorrow morning at 7:02. I asked for the earliest time they had and didn't really think anything of it. I checked today to see what time sunrise is tomorrow and it is not until 7:24. I don't typically pay attention to "official" sunrise times. Are they pretty accurate? Will I be playing the first couple holes in the dark? I would assume that the course knows what time the sun comes up and wouldn't schedule a tee time in the dark. Anybody ever tee off before sunrise?

Look up the definition of civil twilight.   You'll find that there should be enough light to do most activities.   Here in Michigan, tomorrow, 9/26/15 civil twilight is at 6:57 am.   Finding an errant shot may prove difficult though.

My home course schedules their first morning tee time for about 20 minutes before you can see the ball. They will give you a glow ball in the pro shop which you are expected to use for the first two holes. I've never booked one of those times, but I believe they notify groups of this expectation when making the reservation. Anyway, I think you will be fine 20 minutes before the official sunrise, but the first hole you may want to hit a shorter club, just to be sure

my home public course has a number of retired monthly pass holders who insist on teeing off in complete darkness - more than an hour before sunrise.  It's rather unbelievable.  They're there with headlamps, a strong light on the ground and a partner keeping an eye out.  To top it off, this is the SF Bay area and it's often extremely foggy as well.  Good thing they don't hit the ball far.  I think they play like 5 holes in the dark.  It's a riot.

I know this because I'm often heading to the driving range before work.

    • Day 75.  More wall drill, plus I set up to a ball with my 6-iron (on a mat, but I didn't downswing and hit the ball at any point).  I set up, took the backswing, incorporating what I was getting out of the wall drill.  The thing I really noticed when I got to the top is that my club isn't as far over-extended (seriously, some of those face-on videos looked like I was trying to be John Daly). 
    • Hard to think of a more perfect iron shot from the rough. I guess you could ask to hole out but that seems a little greedy. Brave to even try the shot then it sounds like. Glad you were rewarded!
    • Some of DiMarco's missed putts were pretty timid efforts so that is why I described it as giving them away. He can say he misread them and that is true for some but others really were just poorly struck. It is not to say DiMarco handed the green jacket to Tiger on a silver platter but Tiger was very fortunate that DiMarco did not really capitalize on the chances he was giving himself. That said I agree it does not really take away from the case for Tiger's greatness. The post iacas linked to came off rather biased in tone so I more pointed this out to acknowledge that every Tiger victory was not a controlled cruise either. I think it just goes to show that winning a major is extremely difficult and even the greatest need some bounces to go their way sometimes. It is like that with many sports when played at such an elite level.
    • I played Richter Park a few weeks ago for the first time. It was nice, though not something I desire to drive two hours for. Playing Links at Union Vale again in a few weeks; that is a course that I don't mind the drive for. We could look at other central CT courses. Wintonbury Hills is really nice. I'm playing Gillette Ridge tomorrow, which is supposed to be similar. 
    • Jack's courses always seem to be like you have to always be calculating and many risk/reward decisions. It's harder to relax on his courses, imo.
