    I believe we gave almost all the scorecards to @RandallT, though I don't know if he still has any of them.

    First, I concur that you should not have a pic of @NCGolfer as your avatar. :-P I know I got a great pic of you at A6 as you hit put your 2nd shot on for a par 5- love the colors on that pic. That red uniform was a thing of beauty. Maybe crop it somehow? (I won't be offended it you don't use it) Here it is:


    And yes, I collected them all, but last seen in Erik/Mike's room on the kitchen counter when I departed. I'm not trying to shovel responsibility off on them, but I wasn't sure they were ever needed again myself and I voiced that opinion. Little did I know people would want to reconstruct rounds from them.  If I were Erik/Mike, I'd likely have tossed them cleaning up the room.

    For what it's worth, at least one card from every match was accounted for. I know that because I labeled them all as Thursday AM or whatever, and each batch had a 1/2/3 accounted for.

    Secondly, here's the big board from the entire event (all rows unhidden):

    Just thought someone might want to see it all at once, rather than individually as they were posted through the event (for less clutter).

    Lastly, if someone ever googles "Webb friggin Simpson" (with the quotes) they will now get a link to this thread. Perhaps the only time in recorded internet history that that exact phrase has been used.

    ....(and witnessing my chip in eagle!).

    I was bummed because I BARELY missed both yours and Phil's eagles. For his, I was just on my way to to the 2nd tee, since I just took photos of your group in the fairway. I was a bit above your green, but looking the opposite direction. 

    For yours, the lighting was poor as I was looking back up the toward the green, so I chose not to take a photo. In fact I went and got a refill of water at the station on #16 tee when I heard the roar. So that's 2 eagles I was near, but didn't see. Were there any other eagles (other than those two) at Newport Cup 2017? 

    If it's any consolation, I think this video below shows the very place you got your eagle so viewers can imagine it. Dave K's approach is shown here, and Nate is at the bottom watching for where it lands. I doubt Dave K could even see the hole from there. As I recall, Dave K hit a beautiful approach to 10ft or something.

    Your 2nd shot is already over in the area where you start to see Nate (just right side of the green, but pin high, right?). Pin was front left. I remember all of us guessing how long of a chip that was as you were walking off the green. I should've used the new app I installed that is pretty cool to get an exact measurement! 


  3. I am not counting points yet for points that are obvious: for example, in Match 5 Phil is up 7 after 15 for the overall. That will be a point for red, but it's too confusing to partially do that.  

    There are 12 points up for grabs for the back nine and total. You can decide which are the ones that are basically conceded. 

    Plus, I believe there are still 5 challenge points left.

    Blue needs a big big comeback. It’s not looking good for the host squad right now.


    I think the challenges will be a crazy finish. Anything could happen.  

    You have the latest info, but as the board stands it's 28-27 RED.... IF all matches conclude the way they are now (a big IF, granted), with 5 challenges not invoked.

    Then it boils down to: BLUE would need 4 of the 5 remaining challenges to win, 3 of the 5 remaining to tie.

    The challenges should be fascinating. Our hunch is that there will be many challenges on the difficult par three 17th, but each team will make decisions independently (and could vary based on conditions as they go).  6 points up for grabs with the challenges in today's matches. Reminder, the yellow ball will be played alternate shot and team that shoots par or better (net) gets the point.

    Felt like adding commentary on hole

    Match 1 finishing front 9 as Match 2 preps for approaches down the hill and over the hazard to #9.

    One of my favorite holes at Mid-South. Nice little amphitheater grass slope, and view of the approaches coming from up the hill (in background of pic).  Hard to top #6 though (par 3 over lake), which I enjoyed. Gorgeous holes both.
