  1. That other course looks fine to me. Definitely a change of pace. If it's flat and we take carts, I'm game. I don't think I'll have a problem walking SV 3 days in a row, but not walking a day (during or afterwards) won't be bad.
  2. Do you really want to be responsible for us animals at your neighbor's house? There's no telling what he might find after we stay there. A few of @iacas's empty cherry coke cans, maybe a golf ball or two, etc...
  3. There's gotta be a house on AirBnB or a VRBO close your lake house that would be cheap/easy to rent.
  4. First swings in about 3.5 months: Finger didn't really bug me. No pain when the ball makes contact, even when I bury the club into the ground. Which I did a few times in this session, haha. I didn't hit one super thin yet, so I don't know what that will feel like. It feels weird just to grip a club, but I'll get over it quickly. By the way, that cloud in the background of my face on view is smoke from one of the fires in Colorado right now. It is not a good situation, but we have snow in the forecast over the weekend, so that will help.
  5. I am happy for any of this. I would lean towards Sand Valley on 3 days as opposed to all 4. I'm sure I'll love SV, but I also like to experience more than just those 2 courses on the trip. A thought if we do 3 days at SV: maybe we make a foursome at each course, so that people can play their favorite of the two again. That may not work out perfectly in the end, but it's an idea. Question for you, though, Nate. Is it snowing where you are right now? I tend to get the golf bug and try to plan something like this when there's snow falling or on the ground. 🙂
  6. Virtually certain (Rules of Golf level stuff here!) in: @cipher @iacas @DeadMan High likelihood of being in: @DaveP043 @GolfLug @mvmac Most likely in: @Slim_Pivot @Hardspoon @TN94z @ChetlovesMer For those counting at home, that's 10. We have a pretty hard limit of eight here. Moved myself into virtually certain.
  7. Could be kind of funny with your buddies, but not funny with a stranger.
  8. I'm not surprised. Everyone is cooped up at home and dreaming of traveling. Plus, there's not going to be a better way to play these courses. I took a one day trip to Pasatiempo a year ago that probably cost more than this trip will, haha. Mammoth Dunes and Sand Valley are courses that have been on my list, but there's not an easy way to pull them off for me. This is an incredible way to do it. If it's half as fun as the Newport Cup, it will be an amazing experience. And it may be more fun if we're not all competing against each other. One thing to add to what @cipher said about travel is that flying into Milwaukee would give you the opportunity to tack Erin Hills on at the front or back end of the trip. Another course in the area that I've heard of is Lawsonia Links, looks like it's about an hour away from Sand Valley, but I have no idea whether that's close to the lake house or further away.
  9. I’m in. My wife gave me the go ahead, and I’m committing before she changes her mind. 😛

    Dumb Injuries

    Got the okay to golf today from the doctor! So it was just over 12 weeks from my surgery, and 3 and a half months from the initial injury. Be careful with cutting avocados!
  11. A very important announcement:
  12. He's a maniac, and a great watch. It will probably get a little tiring at some point, but hearing him complain about how bad he is at golf when he's winning a tournament is hilarious. Plus, it's always possible he'll explode and light himself on fire.
  13. You're not driving the green on 7 with those numbers ... 😛
  14. Sent an e-mail. Every time I think about this, I get angrier. Especially now, we need to be as flexible as possible, and it's just stunning incompetence to not see that this is wrong.
  15. High school sports administrators are the worst. To go through all effort to get it cleared with the proper people at the school, and then to have the PIAA seemingly unilaterally take them off the tee sheet is insane. Not only that, they freaking threatened to have the police arrest them? I'm not sure I can put in words the disdain I have for that, and this whole situation. I will try, though...
