The fairways are very big, the long stuff really should not be that much of an issue.

Will certainly take your word for it....doesn't look that way when viewing on the internet, but that can be deceiving.....good to hear quite frankly

I guess they could have tightened up the fairways since I was there though.  But the fairways also angle away from the tees on a lot of holes as well making the landing areas a bit wider if you hit your distances.  There are a number of blind shots on the course though as well.  I would imagine we'll hear some complaints about this from the babies. ;-)

Two of the players with local ties to Mid-Michigan qualified yesterday, both at the Springfield sectional -
Brian Stuard, Jackson native, Oakland University - finished 2nd at -9
Ryan Brehm, Traverse City, MSU - finished 4th at -7
(Brehm had a 30 on his final 9, closing with birdie, par, birdie, birdie) for the final spot)

Madison home-boy Steve Stricker shoots 67/65 to win the Memphis sectional.  On his way to Erin Hills!

:dance:

 

That is great!  I was hoping he would do so as well.

A guy in my PGA chapter qualified, Derek Barron.  He won the Tacoma, WA sectional at -7.  He works at a course near where the sectional was held, so he had some home field advantage.  I'm looking forward to see how well he does at Erin Hills.  He usually finishes well in our local events.

Airline loses bag, qualifier WDs. Explains why he didn't use rentals in the timeline.

 

It's his fault for putting his tee time so close to his inbound flight. He gambled and lost. I bet he wishes he flew in the day before.

I'm sure Billy H will be chirping about it. Although he should have bigger fish to fry at home than complaining like he always does.

I have to agree.  In addition to losing your bag, there are way too many things that can cause flight delays.

    • I see this often in casual golf.  Frequently if playing a new course with someone who "Knows" the course they inevitably tell you how to play each hole as if they are your caddie.
    • Played a strange 85-shots round at my home course yesterday. 1/13 fairways and 4/18 greens was actually flattering with the long game I displayed. An absolute horrorshow of ballstriking. Thinned it, sliced it, shanked it, pulled it and duffed it short, left and right.  Upside: From 50 yards and in was excellent and I made 9 up'n'downs from 50 yards and in and no 3-putts. I haven't hit a single 3-putt on my homecourse in the last 5 rounds. My long game can't possibly get any worse and I still shot 85 and 36 stableford points. 
    • This is one of those that depend on the situation.  If you do have a cart path right next to the hazard and your two club lengths drop comes into there, you are entitled to free relief from the path (ball or stance).  In theory you should mark the spot, then take relief from that spot as GUR relief, but many people choose to do it all at once
    • @BeauJoe - welcome to TST. Don't worry about older clubs.  Quite a few of us here have them.  The oldest clubs at home are a Dunlop set from 1986, which I use when I don't want to travel with my clubs from my apartment in the city to our coffee estate
