  2. Agreed on all counts. My problem is that this isn't black and white...subjective to a "reasonable" amount of time. There could be many scenarios where one official might call a penalty and another would not.
  3. This. I'm sorry but you can't claim pace of play when you sit in the fairway agonizing over five variables and/or take minutes to line up a putt with a green book analyzing slope. If there is stricter enforcement, I guess there might be a problem evaluating when a person should mark their ball. What if I hit a 100 yard shot to 2 feet behind the hole and my partner is already lining up his chip from 20 yards away. Do I need to run to mark the ball for fear of penalty? What is a reasonable amount of time?
  4. If it's wacky like Tot Hill, count me out. If it's some of his earlier work or in the style like Caledonia or True Blue, I'm interested.
  5. Tot Hill Farms is the most quirky...Tobacco Road has a lot of weirdness to it as well but not as severe. I personally don't care for either of them all that much. Tobacco Road has its moments though. At least both of them (normally) are in good shape. 🤷‍♂️
  6. Goals for 2019: Get to and maintain + handicap for entire year. This is already trending in right direction from the end of last year to beginning of this year. Improve driving. Strokes gained is MUCH better on the approach (irons) side of things. Driving is very average and would like to improve consistency in both distance and accuracy Get to a positive strokes gained in Putting. It's my worst stat. I have improved after some bad putting rounds towards the end of the year. Changed my grip and things started clicking and have been putting well since. Need to commit to the new grip and start making more putts in the 5-15' range. Play in at least one of our CGA championships. Haven't in a long, long time. I feel good enough about my game to get out and play in one of these. Repeat club champion. 🙂

    2019 Newport Cup

    LOL. It wasn't a knock on the company...you played well and was tired of seeing your name across from mine! 🙂
  8. Just realized that I will be traveling out to the Grand Canyon the Saturday/Sunday of the Masters. Not great planning on our part but hard to move our kids' spring break. Going to have to get my portable battery charger ready. 🙂

    2019 Newport Cup

    I've been lucky to enjoy this competition more than once...the first one many, many moons ago. Erik and Mike did a great job last year putting this together at some awesome courses and added some excellent swag as well. You never know what to expect going into a golf trip never meeting anyone before but I have to say all the guys were great and would have absolutely no reservations on doing it again (except playing @DeadMan every round) and hope some new blood will get to enjoy this experience.
  10. That thing would have to get dropped from 50 feet to take damage. I was about to throw the box away and thought it might be a perfect fit. Our under-sink water filter could double as the trophy if need be. 🙂
  11. The Newport Cup is on its way to @cipher! I found a perfect box to protect the most valuable non-major trophy around.
  12. I wonder if LaCava will have a Poker Stars hat on or something else. It is Vegas. 😀
  13. My expectation with keeping a common scorecard or having to report my score is only: A tournament or A group game (i.e. skins) Other than that, I never expect (or really want) to have someone else keep my score.
  14. I've got it. It is resting comfortably at home on a shelf next to my Pinehurst collection. Appropriate since that was the area of its last tournament (and victory.) Hoping to take it to the scene of the 1974 PGA Championship (Tanglewood) where Lee Trevino held off Jack to win.
  15. I think most here have seen this article about Molinari's distance gain and how it helped him. Broadie even tweeted about it. Really good read.
