  1. I would love to win the Speed Cart GT https://shop.sunmountain.com/Speed-Cart-GT-20119-detail.html in White-Cobalt! I have owned a Sun Mountain Speedcart for many years and love it, the design is great and it is very reliable. My oldest daughter is starting high school golf this coming fall so this would be for her, need to start them young with Sun Mountain quality!
  2. Are you all going to yell "Get in the hole" and "Bababooey" after every shot? LOL
  3. I don't think he will break 127. Can you pair him up with 3 other strangers, preferably better players? Also, would be good to get an announcer on the first team to call out names, exchange scorecards etc. I remember my first tourney, the nerves do a lot to alter your ability.
  4. You are thinking like a guy here, when women get together, time is no longer relevant. A spa day will be a full day, you won't need to worry. My recommendation to you would be to put a schedule together, so everyone is on the same page, that way you will be able to carve out the time you need for golf and let the wife know when she needs to self entertain. 7AM group breakfast 8:30 - 4:30 men are golfing (2 rounds per day right??) 6:00PM group dinner etc. etc. etc.
  5. Well, if you booked on-line for an earlier time as a single, then you would have a reservation for that time and the course would most likely honor it. They are probably giving you a later time verbally as they are more confident there would be room at that particular hour. Either way, you will be fine.
  6. @Golfingdad I am really bummed but my daughter now has a piano recital scheduled that day, at 1pm, so there is no way I can make it now. Sorry, I was really looking forward to it. Next time!
  7. Very cool. I bought two of those posters on eBay last year, the 2008 (Torrey) & 2012 (Olympic Club), both framed and signed. The guy that shipped them did a terrible job with packaging and the glass broke and ripped the posters to shreds. I was so bummed, plus when I opened them up all these small glass shards went everywhere. No fun, had to get a refund, etc.
  8. Yes, the cover photo is very misleading, here is a picture from the actual article:
  9. Received, framed and hung the print in my office.
  10. Since it's conceptual at this point the answer is yes, it will work.
  11. I was watching GC and they had a segment on with Tom Kite. He was showing how he would practice his chipping from 20, 30, 40 yards. Basically he had his caddie stand at each station and bark out how close he was to hitting the yardage. So if he hit it one yard past the 20 mark, she would say 21, etc. Immediate feedback. He said he did that drill every day. I thought it was a great way to practice, but unfortunately, I don't have a full time caddie at my disposal. So, imagine a device about the size of a Amazon Echo, that you would place out at whatever distance you wanted to practice hitting to. It would have a spinning laser that would create a 10 yard circle (non-visible) and track where your ball hits in relation to it. It would communicate back to your phone the results, audible each time and also track the entire session. Is this something you would buy?
  12. I voted #3. I would feel most confident with an iron short and left of the large bunker, trying to get into the 130-140 range as there is not much protecting the green on this hole. I played this course once, in 2014, I bogeyed this hole but I did hit the fairway looks like.
  13. That was very entertaining! My favorite parts were the explanation of the "white stuff" and moving the ball out of the divot. You seem like someone that would be fun to play a round of golf with, good luck!
  14. I agree, it's part of the role. I think Bob Costas does a good job too. I don't care for Joe Buck as much. How about Lester Holt? LOL
