As much as I'd love to be part of the East team, I'm removing myself from consideration. 

10 days in Europe in Sept, 4 days in Vegas in November for work, and an unexpected/recently planned 7 day couples trip (with some golf) in the Dominican Republic in December plus my wife wanting to get a new car this fall/winter uses up most of our remaining "fun/vacation" money for the year.

I'll definitely follow along through the submission process and the actual event and hopefully plan better the next time the Newport Cup comes around!

If true, we may need to contact the New York Times for the earth shattering news this represents for the red team. This means we have a fighting chance!

It's like if Tom Brady was injured before Super Bowl Sunday. Now all we need is a family member in @jsgolfers family to get married and we might win one of these darn things.

@mchepp You may have got your wish, I just received a promotion and may not be able to make it.  Plus who knows, maybe Erik wouldn't pick me again anyways, I have been playing rather poorly this year.

Congrats on the promotion! You are a gamer so I am sure by the time the event rolled around you'd have had your game in shape. I am certain @iacas would have picked you because he can't leave the MVP on the bench.

Hopefully these buggers are gone before then.

Grasshoppers have invaded Las Vegas following a wet winter, and the swarms are so large that they're showing up on weather radar.

Word is two, to four weeks before their numbers drop very much. It's a migration. The critters there today, will move on at night, but are replaced by others as they arrive.

I played Arroyo club (the public course, not the private club) in late April this year.  The course was not in a good shape.  I would not play that course based on my one and only experience in April.

Even though I would love to participate in the Newport Cup one of these days, my travel plans are so erratic, I cannot commit until a week or two before.  So good luck to everyone this year and GO WEST TEAM!!!

Huh, it was good when I played it in late May.

    • 40-60 year old golfers, do I have a project for you! I was once-upon-a-time gifted a set of Founders Club forged blades, 2-PW. If I told you they had minimal wear, that would be an understatement. I hit two shots with the 2iron just because I had two. Otherwise, 7i to PW has maybe five shots of wear on the face. But that's besides the point.  When I was a 15 year old I had my first set of Ping Eye 2 and for.the life of me remember having Langert woods. Does anyone have a lead on a Langert Driver and 3 Wood? Particularly with a shaft I can only remember as being labeled the "Brush Stroke" shaft...  I could be totally wrong being that I do remember have a Founders Club driver back on those days  However I'm 95% certain it was a Langert head, with the "paint stroke" graphics on the shaft. If you happen to know of this club and live in the LA area, I'd love to buy it off you, after which I'll invite you to play at the club where I work and kick you butt with some 1990s ancient club technology...   Thank you.    Ben. 
    • Your hands move out and up rather than tracing inward. That’s all. A little of that is fine. You’re bordering on a bit too much IMO.  As I noted it does help you loop it back to the inside on the downswing.
    • As a 20 I agree.  I'm 66 and still want to lower that number, bought the book and this winter (starting next week) am going to practice and get a few more yards on my full swing shots. My short game and putting are not going to get much better or better enough to give me 5 strokes. Maybe I have drunk the cool-aid , but I have seen that GIR is a way better place to lower my score. Th alternative is ok-play for GIR +1-and live with 91-95. Its closer to par than 102  
    • Unless they are bringing in hazards, OB, that is the proper strategy to achieve that goal. Being as close to the hole as possible on each shot without penalty will help greatly in breaking 90.    No offense but I think ‘ realistic’ could be replaced with ‘ easier.’ If you think you have the ability to improve your distance then that is the best way to start breaking 90 unless you have a glaring weakness with your short game. Which doesn’t appear to be the your case if you struggle to reach most par fours in regulation due to distance.
    • vote was yes. My guess is that the non alcoholics all voted no. Drunk driving laws are like locks...they work for honest folks. If I drink, I will probably drink and drive...so I have stopped drinking. Once I black out all bets are off.
