  1. So my dream trip has finally come to an end! I can't begin to say enough about how amazing it was. If you are a golfer (of any level), you have to do everything you can to make this trip happen! I am by no means a wealthy person and this trip has put me in debt for the foreseeable future, but, being able to experience it with my father and brother was priceless. As most of you know, we started out our trip at TPC Harding Park. The staff was exceptional, I booked through the TPC MasterCard that you see commercials for during the golf tournaments on the weekends. Booking with this card sav
  2. Teeing it up on 18 @ pebble today! It was awesome, but I made it look so ugly!!!
  3. No, that's definitely the first tee box. The starter took the picture.
  4. The first at Spanish Bay! That place kicked my a$$ today, but the scenery was priceless!
  5. I live in the heart of Philadelphia.... ya get used to it!!! ;-)
  6. I will gladly ask in the morning.
  7. We made it through the first two days of the trip! Day one was a travel day, then once in San Francisco we ventured over to Harding Park. First, I can't begin to tell you how great the staff was. We arrived with our names on our carts, and also a reserved table overlooking the 18th fairway and green for a quick bite to eat before our round. The course wasn't as "scenic" as I'd expected, but the rough was pretty thick so it was all about keeping it in the fairway. Then we drove down to San Jose and stayed Saturday night and last night. Yesterday we went to the Eagles game..... if you can't pun
  8. Let me start by saying that I'm a die hard Philly fan and hate, no, DESPISE every and anything New York! However, I will give credit where credit is due here. Jeter is that guy! That athlete that you could tell your kids..... "that's the one you want to emulate"! He was a total class act his entire career and played the game the way it should be played. I have nothing but respect and admiration for #2. As for his place among the greatests of all time....... His post season numbers alone are amazing and unprecedented. I will definitely be telling my kids/grand kids that I had the pleasu
  9. I couldn't begin to tell you how blown away my dad is about the trip. Long story short he is a cancer survivor and this will be our first father son trip since he's been back in good health. As for the money.... It's CRAZY EXPENSIVE! Between my brother and me it cost us about 6k each (that includes paying for my dad). But, like someone posted earlier, it's a one in a lifetime opportunity and it will be worth every penny.
  10. Just some good hearted banter!! But, I'll be sure to take a bunch of pics.
  11. As a die hard eagles fan, I'm going to use whatever will annoy the he'll out of the locals the most...... SO FRISCO IT IS!!! Thanks for the heads up!!! =-O
  12. Just a little update on the search to get back "in the swing of things"...... I used the Pings for the first half of the season, but ultimately ended up back with my trustee burners! I guess I'm just gonna stick with what works!!!
  13. OK, Well I started this thread back in the beginning of February, and the time is upon us!!! We leave on Saturday! We are flying into San Fran and playing TPC Harding Park, Saturday afternoon then driving to San Jose. We will be staying in San Jose Saturday night and Sunday night..... going to the Eagles vs. 49ers game on Sunday afternoon. Then heading to Pacific Cove Monday and checking in at the Resort at Pebble on Monday night. We will be playing Spanish Bay on Tuesday, Spy Glass on Wednesday, and Pebble on Thursday! Thank you all very much for the info you provided. I'll be sure to
  14. I just watched the "Stadler" interview, father and son playing together in the masters is pretty awesome. I'm fortunate enough to play with my father often, but couldn't imagine playing in an event of this magnitude. They both said it will not effect them on an emotional/mental level.... Whattya think??
