The Cup has arrived safe and sound in Virginia

I have a few nights to enjoy it on my own before sharing it very gladly with my teammates, @GolfLug and @SavvySwede.  We may even get a chance to fill it with snow after our round of golf on Saturday!

Sure is, looking just a little battered, but still in one piece.  Kinda like me, come to think of it.

There was a whole mess of built up packing tape when I was shipping it away, but they stripped it mostly off when I brought it to the post office.

Well the Newport Cup is now in Virginia Beach with @GolfLug.  We had a good time with it here.  If got to spend some time in one of my favorite parts of my house, right next to the beer tap:

and gambling

The Cup came to Stoneleigh for a day of golf, but it was WAY too cold to take many photos.  We did have a better day at Springfield, as captured in @jsgolfer's post here:

Just before the final handoff to @GolfLug, we got a photo of the Cup with the MVP of the competition, @RandallT

I know, he didn't actually play, but that's the MVP prize in his hand, the :ping: G30 Driver in his hand.  I think all of us enjoyed his updates and leaderboards, almost real-time reporting on the progress of the matches.  Now the Cup is on to new adventures with Vishal!

Ha, thanks for the mention, Dave. It was good to put the driver into action with two actual Newport Cup attendees. It had its share of push slices to the right, but the Ping G30's finest moment to date was being somewhat abreast with you in the fairway on Stoneleigh #12- a challenging driving hole, OB right, hazard left, uphill against the wind. In the snow, no less, as I recall. Hopefully, I can draw upon that hole for good swing thoughts in the future.

For everyone- Dave has an amazing basement/cave with golf memorabilia everywhere, pool table, the works. When I first saw the cup by the basement beer tap, I thought he'd mounted the damn tap right onto the cup before sending it along with Vishal.

Sadly, just an optical illusion.

So the Newport Cup has been a companion for last two weeks. I am finally getting my head above the water from work obligations to take the trophy out on the town for some local sight seeing.. Some photographs at some of my favorite sites:

I would love to be a part of 2016 Newport cup. When I visited Orlando with @kpaulhus and @GolfLug they were raving about it. I'm in !!!

The next one is in 2017. If you're a member with a thousand posts or so by then, good chance you'll be on the team. :-)

    • These are a great grip, played with them for years, although I just switched to the Golf Pride CPX, which I really like as well.
    • Know how to react to them. You can't stop unlucky things from happening. You can control how you react to it.  Example above, you assume the guy is waving you up to speed up play. Your initial reaction was to rush your routine. Looking at it from this perspective, you are being waived up. So, the group in front of you knows this. There is no need to rush your routine because you are saving time while the group in front of you is waiting for the green to clear. Waiving up does not equal rush to hit. That is not where the time savings is happening.  Being a 2 handicap, know your expectations. Also, know your own stats. What is your average leave for a 7-iron? Meaning how far left or right does your 7-iron end up 8 out of 10 times. Don't guess, actually measure this. People are horrible in guessing how far offline they hit it. Let's say you slightly mishit one, but it still ends up with in your expected shot zone, ok move on. You hit a ball that was ended up 80% of the time within your normal range of outcomes. No need to get upset about it.  Let's say you hit a really bad shot. Ok, what is the reaction? Should you get upset? Should you try to press and make a hero shot? Is it early in the tournament? Where are you in the standings? What are the expected outcomes of the options given to you? If you have an alley to hit a punch shot, and you know you can hit that shot "X" percent of the time, what is that compared to punching out right and hitting a longer iron in for the 3rd?  Also, take on the challenge of the next shot. If you hit a shot in the bunker, look at it as a game within a game. Instead of getting dejected, get excited about getting to hit a challenging shot. When people get anxious/nervous they are actually getting excited. Those two reactions come from the same area of the brain. Meaning, it is how we frame them that determines if we will be looking forward to something or hating it. You are not initiating fight or flight responses on the course. There is a lot of this that is just framing things in a certain way.  Guess what, you can practice all this. Go play 9 holes, and before each shot run become self-aware of your emotions and initial reactions. You got to train yourself to let those unneeded reactions go by and replace them with productive responses to the situation at hand. 
    • Some great advise in above posts. Only thing I would add is don't go out of your way to put tournaments on a pedestal. Think of it as any other non-competitive round. That is something you have to be deliberate about and will allow you to own your round more instead of the 'BS' owning it.
