@kpaulhus, Sounds like an awesome trip. Meeting Arnold, what a once in a lifetime opportunity. Awesome stuff man. 

In 2013 and in 2015 I played in Orlando. I played OC Panther in 2015 and in 2013 I played Shingle Creek. I thought OC-Panther was a better course as well. Shingle Creek we played when it was wet and cart path only. I didn't find the course to warrant the top public course. It was good, but not that good. 

It's a bit of a trek, but if you are ever down there again give Southern Dunes a try. It's about 30 minutes south of Orlando. It's one of my favorite golf courses to play. 

Thanks for putting up a recap. This is going to make be break out my camera for my trip to Pinehurst next week. :-D

awesome read @kpaulhus. while I did manage to get an 8 on a par 4 and still go on to shoot 75 you forgot to mention your major melt down on #18 at bay hill (which I recorded). Also you forgot to mention that we had a bet on all 6 rounds for total strokes for the week. Going into the last round I was up 25 strokes. Now I know you like to forget these minor details from the trip, but do not worry I do not forget and I am delighted to share them with the members of the sand trap.

@GolfLug is doing the rounds, because I just met/saw him to play a couple rounds this past weekend up here 850 miles farther north near DC, and when he pulled out the photos of Palmer (and the personal lesson from Breed) and told similar tales, I was similarly struck with a bit of disbelief at first. Very cool story at Bay Hill, and great trip overall!

This made me laugh out loud. I could totally see one of my friends creating an account on a site just to post something like this.

Sounds like an awesome trip!

...So after my two weeks of a whirlwind golf + work trips I am back to some normalcy. Just wanted to drop in thank @kpaulhus for arranging a fantastic trip. The courses were absolutely top notch, the group was sturdy and fun and the experience was worth memories of a lifetime.  

Of course, cannot say enough how much of a pleasure was it meeting Mr. Arnold Palmer. Certainly will treasure the moment forever. Also, met Michael Breed of Golf Channel fame and an impromptu diagnosis (courtesy of my new friends who threw me up to him for nothing more than entertainment purposes.. ha ha) of how my crazy-ass swing address and move worked. A genuinely nice fellow to meet in person.   

@kpaulhus,I am looking forward to more adventures next year!

    • My school just announced similar last night:  masks for all, regardless of vaccination status, when indoors on campus, with some exceptions like if I'm alone in my office.  Students who plan to return for the fall term must either be vaccinated or have an "approved exception or medical exemption," although that's been announced for a while.  Tomorrow is four months since I got my second shot, so I'm good to go as far as that goes. Edit to clarify:  I have no problem with the policy.  "I'm good to go as far as that goes" was my saying I don't have all my lesson plans for the term already in order, that sort of thing.  
    • My wife has a cousin whose wife is completely off the rails.   I mean it’s a planned pandemic, micro chips and Bill Gates are behind it….or worse.   She has had so many posts taken down on FB for the misinformation and crapola that she spreads.   She, albeit briefly, was posting about how the vaccine gets in your blood and makes you magnetic.   So yes, she believed that you could stick keys to your head because of the vaccine. kind of makes deluding yourself you can make that forced carry (when you can’t) seem sane….
    • The anti-vaxers have a ton of excuses.  I have heard many of them.  I have an unvaccinated friend (yes, I even have stupid friends) who quite often "cherry-picks" articles from alternative publications that support his view and he texts them to me.  Anything to support a bad habit.  Smoking is good for you...
    • It would be nice to watch Covid slowly just fade away as vaccinations increase. Unfortunately the dopes who have refused to get it will dream up some other reason why Covid faded. Or we’re in for another lockdown as Delta and other variants surge and they’ll say, ‘ see..what good is the vaccine any way.’ Again, profound ignorance.
    • Birdied #16 at Quail Brook today. Pulled my drive onto the 15th tee box and got to my ball where a couple of my friends were waiting to tee off, ready to heckle me. Had about 90 yards to the flag and hit a partial GW to 2'. The ball mark was 2' short of the hole from where I was and the ball ended up 2' past it. I don't know if it had a chance to go in; it probably took a hop and spun. I would have never heard the end of it if I didn't hit a good shot there.
