Great idea, I added my "home course" as it were, basically just the course I play the most.

I did the same.

Wow, this is going quickly, thanks to everyone who's pit a pin on the map already.  I'm going to suggest that everyone rename their "pin" using their own user name, and THEN the name of the course or whatever.  The reason being, if we get lots of pins, clicking on one might get us the name of the golf course, but not the name of the TST member who plays there.

Fixed the label on mine.

So you are!  But you never know when someone from TST will travel to Argentina for business, look at this map, and decide to get in touch with you.  This was really my ulterior motive in starting this, I might find more friends to play golf with when I travel.

Added my general location as well. I dont really have a home course, I typically play anything within an hour or so from my location, but would drive a little further if it was for a meetup or something

Probably out there playing. Weenies. ;-)

I guess I am too dumb, but could not add The Vineyards Golf Course, Escondido CA. It came up with some golf shop on Auto Park Way.

Its in there now, I think you had it already.  Either that, or someone else put it in before you did.  Thanks for playing along.

I put in my "home" course (Falls Road GC, Potomac, MD), although I usually rotate among the area munis.

OK, thanks. I changed the marker color to Red to distinguish it from @No Mulligans

    • 1 - 15 chip 2 - middle 3 - downhill 4 - yes 5 - soft 6 i 6 - yes 7 - spinner 8 - in 9 - when a group behind us is waiting for me to tee off...
    • So you're comparing your answers to ONE pro? That hardly seems like a valid study. I'm a pro. Where would my answers count? Because they are… 40 foot putt or 15 foot chip? (And you almost never have a 15-foot chip. If you're on the fringe, it's a 15-foot putt. If you're in rough, the pin must be about ten feet away from the edge of the green, which is rare. Pros average 2.06 putts from 40 feet, and if you're actually chipping the lie could be bad, etc. so most people should choose the 40 foot putt.) Front, Middle, or Back hole location? Nobody should say any differently. Though people who come up short frequently would probably benefit from a back hole location. Uphill or Downhill shot? Are you asking about the lie or the target being uphill or downhill? I answered if the latter. Downwind or into wind wedge shot? Easier to judge and the ball won't drop out of the air from lack of lift. Hard 7i or soft 6i? Depends completely on the situation. Amped up? Need the ball to stop immediately? Then the answer would be different. Go to tee shot? Driver. Chip and run or spinner? Easier to control. Most people can't rely on a spinner, especially if the lie is at all dodgy. When chipping off green, flagstick in or out? In, clearly, though many higher level players get this one wrong and hurt themselves in the process. https://thesandtrap.com/forums/topic/87552-leave-the-flagstick-in-and-tend-it-too/ Most pressure you felt in golf. I dunno. Haven't really felt pressure in golf. It's just a game. Respond outside of the quote boxes, please.
    • Stock shafts Club.  At least on the GBB and XR16.  I'm unsure about the Ping G SFT but I'm pretty sure it was stock as well.  I'll snap a pic but I know the XR16 had a Speeder Evo 565, stiff just from shopping replacements. Buckeye, I could totally see abuse occurring in the GBB as I bought it used from Edwin Watts but the XR16 was new and wasn't my range rat.  Still, all three?  The odds seem to in someway, be more directed at me.  
    • Wow, a post! He mentions a return to SBS Insight. I found this YouTube clip:   Here's the video from the show's site, but I don't think I can watch it from the US. All I can find is that clip above. http://www.sbs.com.au/news/insight/tvepisode/bouncing-back  
    • 15 HCP 1. 40 foot putt or 15 foot chip? 15ft chip 2. Front, Middle, or Back hole location? middle 3. Uphill or Downhill shot? downhill 4. Downwind or into wind wedge shot? into wind 5. Hard 7i or soft 6i? soft 6 6. Go to tee shot? 5iron, if I really need to hit a fairway. Otherwise driver all day long. 7. Chip and run or spinner? chip and run 8. When chipping off green, flagstick in or out? IN. Duh. 9. Most pressure you felt in golf. First tee at a gathering when my college buddies were heckling. Not like crazy stress or anything, but I had to really focus despite the hangover taunts of about 15 guys. I was first to tee that day, and it was nearly 200yds over water.
