  1. I would change it from one major and 2-3 in total to 2 majors and 2-3 in total.
  2. Tiger kinda liked it 😂
  3. At the WGC matchplay Tiger was hitting his driver almost lazy and with a perfect swing. Yesterday at -3 and beeing in contention, his driver swing got erratic again. To my opinion that’s his biggest problem, not the putting.
  4. Definitly below sea level. The dark blue indicates 4 and 5 meter below. Golf course is situated just south of Purmerend.
  5. My former home course in the Netherlands (Purmerend) has a 262y par 3 if you play from the back tees and the pin is at the back of the green. Played this hole many times, always needed a driver. Its a 36 holes course, this hole I disliked the most.
  6. I was a 7 in the Netherlands and it took me a lot of time to recognize how to play courses. Sometimes even on my homecourse, that I played a lot. When playing together with better players, they sometimes opened my eyes. So yes, I only recognize by making a lot of mistakes. Now, two years later, I play in Spain of 10 on a very difficult course. It took me a year to handle the course the way it needs to be handled. I am just not good enough to hit the shots needed on this course. Course design by Ballesteros.
  7. Haha, so this is a thread about an amateur event? Sorry, Anne is playing the first LPGA major this weekend. Got confused.
  8. Come on @iacas , you really think there is more than .1% chance @3jacker is serious here? Love to see some footage of this tournament. Dutch longhitster Anne van Dam is playing. The only Dutch woman on the tour this year. Rooting for her
  9. Good match by Tiger and Bjerregaard. Pitty someone had to lose.
  10. Sergio is an idiot. And I dislike Kuchar too.
  11. Only 4 usa players left? Just by the numbers it should be 7 or 8. How are the odds for Tiger-Rory? I will root for Tiger, but think the odds are against.
  12. I never had this problem in 10 years playing golf. Played on my own in lots of European countries, also Florida and Arizona. Sometimes you get paired, some times you play by your own. Once they said ‘you don’t have standing as a one ball’. So people in front of you don’t let you play trough, which is fine by me.
  13. I have done the same many times. Wait until the last moment to make a bid, so the price goes up like mad the last two minutes. This is because others also use the same strategy. Nothing fishy in my eyes. You did not get a bargain? And now the seller is wrong?
  14. True, I heared an English commentator say something like ‘course setup is a bit like European style’. Don’t know if thats correct, but the Euro’s were in form at Bay Hill.
  15. Many years ago I did a golf clinic because I was invited. They gave me the prize for ‘most promising non golfer’. 10 years later I bought a second home near Orlando (was living in the Netherlands). During my discovery of the surroundings I bumped into some golfcourses and decided to learn playing golf. That was 11 years ago. Two years ago I retired, sold everything and moved to Spain/Andalusia. I’m 15 minutes from the costa del sol, also known as the costa del golf. Living and playing at the golfcourse Alhaurin.
  16. You know @iacas never made a hole in one ever? So lets say he is a scratch golfer, and he never ever made a hole in one. Its not about beeing good at golf. There is luck involved. What do you think would happen if you missed the first 1,000? There would be stress, cause you could go to jail for 5 years. It would ruin your life.
  17. Just made my third hole in one, 110y wind helping, green slopes back if you hit it long. So pitchingwedge just less then a yard long and..... in tha hole! Still not going to take the challenge though. 😉
  18. Here in Europe a pizza with egg on it is nothing special. I for myself don’t like it.
  19. No! Don’t want to hit 250 shots every day with my 8 iron. And I’m a lot better making hole in ones with my hybrids. So, not gonna take the bet.
  20. It didn’t work for the long run. Used it 5 rounds, the good shots were really good, but the bad shots were too bad and occured 1 out of 5 shots. So you loose confidence and stop using it.

    Joost Luiten

    And a T10 at WGC Mexico, well done Joost. Believe he can play the Honda classic now, but he has to choose between that and Oman. He won at Oman last year, so thats a tough decision to make.
  22. Paging @David in FL he is a member at both if I’m correct.
