Oh, it has nothing to do with being private, not wanting to be seen, or anything like that.  My aversion is just based on my inability to make a video, much less edit it, like I have seen some in the 2017 applications...

If it would help I can have my own "She...." talk to yours.  When I was a little uncertain in 2015, she let me know that I BETTER accept the invitation.  Just one reason we're still together for our 35th year.

Well, the boss is onboard. 

We will have to do some arranging and all. Knowing the dates will help. But as of now I'm interested in applying.

Nothing to worry about, I knew absolutely nothing about video stuff prior to my own application a couple of years ago.  Lots of the others were better, for sure, but I was pretty pleased with the end product.

Great. We aren't looking for your video editing skills. Anything reasonably well cobbled together is fine.

Alright. You guys asked for it!  It will be a challenge for sure (probably greater than the golf part)...  :whistle:

I edited my entire submission in youtube itself last time. It was a bit of a pain, but it was fine. It definitely wasn't polished by any stretch of the imagination. I wouldn't worry too much about it.

I had a blast in the 2015 Newport Cup, and found it to be a great blend of competitive golf and camaraderie. Erik and Mike spent a lot of time and preparation to make sure it was really a first class event.

I'd love to participate again at some point down the line, but I'm afraid 2019 may not be the year for me. I spent most of my "golf capital" (both financial and intangible) on a four day trip to Bandon Dunes, Oregon last month - which was amazing in it's own right.

That said, you never know how things will shake out, so I'll keep an eye on this thread and may even toss in an application when the time comes for that.

I added myself in! Not entirely sure I'll be able to go (I've got a few other vacations planned), but I'm sure come application time my schedule will be clearer. Should be a lot of fun again!

The only strange one is where the Mississippi River diverges from the state border up from Minnesota and Wisconsin near Minneapolis. :-P

 

Topic followed, interested.   and us Minneapolis people consider ourselves in the West.

As of right now only 10 people have given themselves the East Team Candidate badge/award and only five have given themselves the West Team Candidate badge/award.

https://thesandtrap.com/awards/category/2-site-awards/

Directions to do so are here:

Add the appropriate badge/award, please, as that's the easiest way for us to find people.

I have not been as active in this forum as in the past a few unfortunate events caused me to not play as much as I used to namely my course closing, but I'll see if this summer I can reestablish my index and add my name.

I was wondering about the 2019 rendition of the cup. I'll have to start filming B-roll for the Rocky style comeback training montage with the 6 inches of snow that just got dumped here locally.

One big plus, if it's in/near Las Vegas, is the very cheap flights available. I'll also finally be 21 by the time October rolls around, so when in Vegas...

Could use some more Western team candidates. @Pretzel @phillyk @mchepp @Golfingdad

 

I threw my hat in the ring. If I am honest I would rather see some of the other folks on here get to play in it. It is such a blast that everyone who wants a shot should absolutely get one. I'll do the work to get my submission in, but I'm hopeful there are tons of worthy candidates and I can enjoy seeing some of the other great members on here get a chance to play. 

That said, I may still go for a day to watch. It is such a great competition that I may come just to watch, take photos, post what's happening on the site. Like @RandallT did in 2017. Vegas is an easy flight.

    • Hi Ace Hmmmm....another issue at the club you've resigned from....I'm shocked...LMAO....as I've said many times before...this club/course is a GONG SHOW. The mistake seems to stem from a booking issue....a 730am start time on A and your 930am start time on B. Your group had already teed off at 930am before the turned group got to the tee....if I was in your group....I would have told the starter to "pound sand"....and the group behind can wait....what's time more minutes. If the 730am group was at B already before your group was on the tee...then they should go ahead and play and then your group would wait the 10 additional minutes. These type of issues must be a daily occurrence at a 27 hole facility.....many groups will play slower and/or faster at the 2 hour 9 hole pace.....golfers just have to show a bit of patience......it's a 10 minute delay. As I said before....2 groups seems to be playing B at 930am...you had already teed off. Besides.....if I was in the 730am group to turn on B....I'd let your group go ahead so I could tell all my POSER golf partners..."look at Ace....watch her play golf for the next 9 holes....you could all learn something.....that's how a 5.5  cap plays golf"😁 Just think positively....you only have a month left at this club....but when you're gone....I will miss all your posts about all the NONSENSE that happens at your club.....I don't think you'll have many DRAMA posts from Paako.  
    • So last Friday I bought a dozen ProV1s and TP5s for me and my son to play Friday and Tuesday. Just now bought a set of M6 irons for my son. 
    • 91 tuesday.  Good round after a triple digit disaster a couple of days before.  
    • I’ve considered the possibility that many people lose interest in pursuing his method due to his incorrect statements. I know @JimVenetosGolf thinks he’s right. But you can’t just answer with ‘try my swing’ or ‘ join my school.’ For instruction sure. But when you’re asked to explain the science and show the data of said claims....you have to produce.  I noticed many of JV’s followers still believe in things like short game being the most important factor to improving scores. Hell one of his main guys ( who has since left) was making YouTube videos about his journey with this method. He still used the old argument, ‘ Putts contribute the most strokes to a round...putting is where you’ll improve your score...that’s what separates the pros from the amateurs.’ Of course that’s completely bogus. I’m not sure why Jim just doesn’t promote his method for what it is. A pretty solid method to play some good golf. But it’s not a method for elite golf.    @JimVenetosGolf I don’t think showing your 118mph driver swing on a TrackMan is in any way an unreasonable request nor disrespectful. It’s 2020. Let’s see the swing and the stats on your +7 hcp golfer. We don’t have to prove the ‘traditional’ swing is successful. We have years of the best golfers in the world winning with it.    I really like this swing and continue to play it. But enough with the ‘ pros are inconsistent’ and ‘ they’d be better with this method’ jargon.
