  1. I played Furth Monteith for many years. Reichwald once. I lived in Nuremberg several times in 70s, 90s, and by Koenigstein/Vileck a few yrs back. Played Heidelberg a lot also. I played there when Americans owned the course. I recognize Conny's name.
  2. Chris, I've played all over Germany and have attended many Euro PGA events. Where is you home course?
  3. Jordan Spieth Back to Defend - Valspar Championship Tampa Valspar Official Site Jordan Spieth, 10 past winners of the Valspar Championship are in the field including Vijay Singh and Luke Donald, who also have been the top-ranked players in the world. Henrik Stenson (#6) and Patrick Reed (#10) are two other players in the OWGR top 10 in the world in the field as are #11 Branden Grace, #15 Danny Willett and #16 Brandt Snedeker. Looking forward to the annual walk around the course during practice rounds and a few early rounds for 2016.
  4. Par 3 is for the entire day. Usually there's practice on the regular Augusta National course for about six hours. Then the players head to the Par 3 course. Large crowds around the fairways, greens. I only went to that once, I think. I continued to walk around the course and take pictures with no players - but a lot of greens keepers prepping the course for the start of the tournament. I don't recall anyone telling me that I couldn't walk around the course. There is the possibility for a rain out - that has happened where the entire day gets cancelled. Would be unfortunate to travel all the way from the West Coast and have that happen. I enjoyed the practice round days more than the regular event - I've probably been to 10-15 days out there. I lived in Augusta for 6-7 years while in the Army and would get tickets through the Army, from a friend, and did the lottery once and got in that way. Hotels/motel prices get to be x2-3 priced more. I'd stay in ATL, drive out early (2.5 hr drive), get there about 8 a.m., stay the day, return to ATL that night. Or use Columbia SC for hotel, and drive in (70 miles).
