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!

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.

    • The round I played yesterday was the first time when both my SG:D and SG:A were better than the 10 handicap level.  That's pretty good, especially since I know what I need to work on in terms of long game (and that has been improving a bit, too). 
    • Day 70 (6/13/21) - My wife filmed me taking swings with an 8-iron and Driver (w/o a ball) in the backyard. Positions seemed pretty good in the backswing, but in the downswing, I noticed that I have a tendency to let the club open up as I started down, thus requiring a correction at impact. Based on this information, I did several more swings focusing on keeping the clubface square to my line throughout the swing. Will work on ingraining this feeling again tomorrow. 
    • Every other weekend I play a modified version of match play with a friend of mine.  We play all 18.  Today I lost 8 to 6.  However...we also keep a cart score:  the winning/tying score, each hole, being the cart score for that hole.   Our previous low cart score had been +4.  This morning we managed a +3.  
    • Whoever chose this course (me) should be punished. And @georgep too. Apologies.
    • I recorded my swing in face on and down the line and have uploaded it here. Please critique and provide feedback. Appreciate your time on this! Thanks! 11 HCP. 8 Iron. Looking to optimize swing and learn to score in Golf.
