I've already had many days with the Cup. Has Barrett been overlooked on the West Team?

@Bechambo doesn't really participate much.

And, oops, you're right. So just remove John from the list, obviously, and Hunter can send it to Dave.

Looks great, and on your birthday!  

Now that its on the east coast, it struck me that three of us Blue Teamers will be together on April 9 and 10.  @SavvySwede and @GolfLug are coming to the northern Virginia area for a couple of days of golf.   It would make a nice photo to have us three with the Cup on the first tee, or last green, or all around the course.  So I'm asking, could we plan to have it on one of our hands around the first of April?

You'll have it by then. I'm keeping it for the rest of this week thru Sunday, and I'll mail it on Monday.

I'm thinking maybe you should send it to @jamo.  If he keeps it a week or two, it would get to the next guy in late March.  I'm not trying to take over the organization, I just think it would be fun to have it here when three of us are together.

I think as @DaveP043 suggested, send it to @jamo if he wants it and then he can send it to @SavvySwede, later in the month, who can send it to @DaveP043 or drive it in with him early April for our Northern VA get together.

PART I

First picture I took with the Newport Cup, at about 7 am. It came with me and rode in the cart with my father and I as we played with the dog fight. However, it brought us zero luck, and we were both out eleven bucks. 

IMG_2411.thumb.JPG.069b0b4e6c06dd7d1f694

A cool photo I took as we ate breakfast that morning. This is inside our clubhouse, which is pretty nice, if decorated a little strangely. 

IMG_2417.thumb.JPG.e835178b81822c286dd29

PART II

The Cup had a much more productive warmup session than I did; it actually stayed there the entire tire while I was hitting balls. My shots were low pull-fades, which I don't even really want to think about!

IMG_2421.thumb.JPG.75d1dbdc378b88f78657c

I wanted to take more shots of the Cup on the course, but it had over 170 players that day, and we just didn't have the time to take any. We had to keep pace, unfortunately. 

Here I am, desperately trying to make a putt go into the mouth of the cup. The reason I am a dog whisker away from the damn thing is that I literally could not hit the cup with the ball. I succeeded this time. 

IMG_2427.thumb.JPG.443ac9988f52bb8f3da6e

PART III

Being as this was the last day for the Cup, I allowed it to sleep in my bed, and I took the floor. It was ungrateful.

IMG_2429.thumb.JPG.8b20af8346a4b99057a34

And then, back to where I had it all week: 

IMG_2430.thumb.JPG.2957f9ec0f74015110604

I didn't get to do as much as I wanted, for one reason or another. But I had a lot of fun carrying it around; I got a lot of strange looks and questions. I thought about taking it to work, but since I'm either directing traffic or in a steel shop, I thought it was probably in the best interest of the Cup to let it rest at home, lol. 

@jamo– it'll be on it's way to you tomorrow!

So, I spent my day/few weeks with the cup in a slightly more low key manner. I didn't have anything big planned, and didn't get to play any golf. So, we simply did some bonding. 

The Cup and I did some free weights:

IMG_3564.jpg

And a little cardio:

IMG_3565.jpg

We made a healthy snack:

IMG_3568.jpg

We got in our five minutes (the Cup is a lefty):

IMG_3567.jpg

We played a bit of The Golf Club:

IMG_3570.jpg

And of course, I made sure to tuck the Cup in at night (in East Coast blue even though the picture makes the blanket look black):

It sounds like @DaveP043is next up. PM me with the address!

    • Day 568, May 23, 2024 Loooooooong day today. Got some shadow work done with an umbrella.
    • Day 148: 5/23/24 Hit balls on the range measuring ball speed for each club. Recently watched a fitting video where the fitter said he targeted 5 mph ball speed increase for each club.  Mine weren’t quite there. 4 and 5 mph were pretty similar except for 1 ball. Big jump for hybrid, bigger jump for 4-hybrid, and huge change for driver. Swung for the fences with driver and hit them all pretty straight at the end of my session. Several at 111 mph, which is above my normal speed. Finished with chipping release 1 with several clubs.  Good session!
    • Birdied 15 at my home course today and made a birdie the other day at a course I don’t usually play. Will update the spreadsheet once I’m home on my computer. 
    • Day 70. Played 9 at Grand Niagara. Very very windy day, but I hit the ball well for me. The wind did help me hit my longest drive ever at 282y and I did make a birdie on a par 5. 
    • So, the struggle right now with the driver is that I’m dipping down with the body, shallowing wrongly.  When I try to get my arms down, I end up not turning much at all. End up hitting the sweeping overdraws or if I dip with the body then I’ll hit massive pushes. I’m trying to turn better with the body and also get the arms down at the same time. Easier with the irons than it does the driver. also, here’s an image when you almost entirely missed the ball. 🤣🤣🤣
