Blue Team?  Have to poke a little fun to start the comradery.

Now can someone help my find my ball in the woods? 

If I did my math correctly, the average age difference in the two teams is 21.2 years.  The East is more than one entire @Pretzel older than the West.  The individual ages I found are (a couple are somewhat educated guesses or I knew the year but not the month):

West: 19,27,30,30,39,43 and East: 37,45,53,55,61,64

The best part about being an old man, @DaveP043, confirm this, is that we have a slew of jokes and put downs of those less experienced golfers.  Unfortunately, all these inexperienced compatriots and opponents are too self-indulgent and unaware to appreciate them.

I don't get it.

It's hard to hear snide comments when you're 50 yards further down the fairway...

It is way past our bedtimes, you are going to have to wait for a snide response until we all get up at 5am.

I'm 43...and had lasik so I can find my ball just fine.  I won't conveniently be able to track yours as it lands deep in the pines.

Whoops, my bad.  I'm probably older than TWO East players then.

I will trust that the Marshals and galleries will help me find my wayward balls.

I don't think the llamas are going to help you. :-P

I love the banter here

This thread reminds me of a comedy reality show I had an idea for which 8 regular golfers (friends) traveled and played tour courses (not on tour, though) for a month or so. I think it would be hilarious to have them all "mic'd up" so you could hear everything that goes on during the round - it would give perspective on how average golfers would play on tour spec courses. There would be banter, side games, betting, good shots, bad shots, night life, drinking, cigars, fishing (for me of course), cussing, drama, and most importantly, GOLF. There would be some sort of prize at the end. Playing with @kpaulhusand our weekend group made me think of it - multiple HUGE personalities and some good to bad golf all the way around.

Anyway, just an idea - if anyone goes live with this, just let me be involved :)

You should read the 2015 Newport Cup matches thread. There was plenty of drama, to say the least. It's a hell of a tournament. Usually pretty chill at night because 36 holes of competition each day really takes it out of you.

I'm planning to add the earlier years in there too.

    • Direction of play is to the right - the trench runs more or less perpendicular across the fairway. There’s definitely a lot of foot wedging going on there. Because the trench was shaped to collect and divert water along the natural slope of the hole, it also tends to collect balls and divert them into the flatter parts of the trench.
    • Welcome.  Before the snow flies in Kelowna I'd get out on the course for at least one round... to see what you need to work on over the winter.
    • I may have just been helped to find the answer.    Is rule 1.3b the answer? Is the measure now “reasonable judgement” of the player rather than KVC?   If so, I think that opens the door for those who would be inclined to bend (I’m being kind) the rules to benefit themselves.    It seemed clear to me that Jimenez didn’t agree with the “reasonable judgement” that Cejka used - and I’m not implying that Cejka cheated - just that Miguel disagreed with the drop. 
    • How was KVC determined for Cejka’s drop after hitting into the water (I think on 15)? Jimenez questioned the ruling and I think that he was correct in doing so.  How did that official determine with KVC that the ball, before going back into the water, bounced inbounds on the green side of the hazard? Nobody saw it and TV footage only showed the golf ball bouncing before returning to the water (not that it ever cleared the line for the penalty area).
