  1. As in 2017… @mvmac and I are going to use this topic to gather applications for the 2019 Newport Cup. Those of you with Newport Cup Candidate badges (and if you're interested, this year you can add your own… we just ask that you're below a 13.0 index, or will be), we've got another very simple video survey. As in 2017, the video helps us (and your prospective teammates!) not only put a face to your name, but to learn a bit more about you than what we can discern from a username, an avatar, and what you have to say in your posts. The questions are almost the same as last year. VLog a Par 3, Par 4, and Par 5. Talk as little or as much as you want. Narrate your strategy, describe the hole, tell us about your best shot ever there, whatever you like. The only requirement is that you Include your full pre-shot routine and the shot itself, but you can trim (or keep) anything else. Shoot from whatever angle you want, too, so long as we can see you the whole time. Pretend you just holed a bomb to win the Newport Cup for your team, and show us how you'd react: a fist pump, a leap into Poppy's pond… something. This was a bit of a dud in 2017… we want to see something entertaining! Play it up a little. It's all for fun. Why do you want and deserve to be chosen to play in the 2019 Newport Cup? (No more false modesty about how you don't "deserve it" but you "want it" - be bold and talk yourself up and tell us why we should pick you.) What is your best competitive golf memory? Your greatest sporting achievement? When did you join TST, why, and what have you enjoyed about it since joining the most? Tell us something about yourself that a prospective teammate or captain might not want to know. Who is the person on TST - regardless of location - you'd most like to have on your team? Who is the person you'd least like to face on the opposite team? (You must choose different people.) Why? If you had to invent a slogan or a team motto for your team (East or West), what would it be and why? If you were hosting the champions dinner at the next Newport Cup as the prior NC's MVP, what would be on the menu and why? Some basic rules: Production quality counts, but only for a little, and only to the point that it may demonstrate a little bit about how much you'd like to make the team. It's not a video production contest. Repeat the question (at least enough of it so we know what you're answering), then give your answer. Smile. These videos should be fun - to make, to view, etc. Be creative. So long as it's not offensive, have fun with it and be creative. Just because there's a list of questions up there doesn't mean you have to just repeat them and answer them. Have your wife interview you. Shoot it Barbara Walters style. Whatever tickles your fancy. Elaborate. Entertain us. Don't just say "I'd like to have so-and-so on my team because he's a good player" or "My best sporting achievement is when I won the city ping-pong championship in 2003. That was fun." Upload and embed. Upload your video to YouTube (or Vimeo) and embed it here in this topic. Make it unlisted if you want, that's fine. Title it something like "@iacas's 2019 Newport Cup Application Video." Other rules may follow if necessary. We'll append them to this first post. So… let's see 'em! Start planning and, for those of you with lower handicaps in particular, start filming your videos! Please also add (in text, to your post here) this information and anything else we may need to know: Shoe size(s) Shirt size(s) Pant size List the brand names for the sizes in case any adjustments need to be made. Note: Not listed here but very important is the amount an applicant posts here on TST. We want to get to know people before we meet them at the Newport Cup. That's part of what has made every prior Newport Cup so successful - we already felt like friends because we already were, and we'd gotten to know everyone already. Someone with only a few posts per week is unlikely to be chosen. And seriously, guys, do this ASAP. Teams will be chosen by mid August, so do not procrastinate.

  3. Not sure if this is where I'm supposed to post pictures with the Newport Cup Trophy, but now that I've handed it off to @DaveP043 after having a couple of beers with him and his lovely wife Mary Anne at the Union Street Pub. Here is the after golf festivities at the Hickory Tavern enjoying a nice IPA. Getting ready to leave the condo and hit the road home. On my way to one of my favorite restaurant near my office, Sweetwater Tavern. And lastly on our back deck after the snow, end of the golf season. And now it has been passed to Dave. He has the picture of the passing of the torch, so to speak. Again, the Newport Cup was a blast, I can't reiterate enough at how great an event this was. Thanks again to @iacas and @mvmac for putting this together and to all my playing partners, @coachjimsc @DaveP043 @bkuehn1952 @cipher @NCGolfer, it couldn't have gone better and to all our playing opponents, @phillyk @Pretzel @Golfingdad @DeadMan @mchepp @kpaulhus it was a pleasure meeting you all and the golf was awesome. I look forward to getting to see you all in the future. Cheers Jerry
  4. The 2019 Newport Cup Las Vegas, NV* So, just a quick note to say that @mvmac and I are looking at having the 2019 Newport Cup, a six-on-six Ryder Cup-style event in mid- to late-October, 2019 in or very near to Las Vegas, NV. Follow this topic if you'd like to stay apprised, and begin thinking of what you might say in your candidate video. * The event as a whole and the location are both tentative but likely at this point. All are encouraged to apply, but teams will likely still be comprised of 10 handicappers or less (it simply makes everything easier). While we'll encourage as many new players, we're not opposed to players making their second or third recent appearance. Costs will likely be the same as the last time - about $750-800 plus however you choose to get there. Regarding "goodies" we're not looking to top what we've done in the past, but Mike and I like goodies too. 🙂 Competition time frame is mid- to late-October, 2019, with teams chosen by mid-August. Format will likely be similar to 2017, with some small changes likely coming to the "Challenge Ball" idea. I may update this bullet list as I think of other things, or things change. That's all I have for now. You can't officially begin applying now, but you can denote your interest, and you can "follow" the topic so that you get instant updates. https://thesandtrap.com/newport-cup/ Edit: Add the appropriate "Candidate" badge/award to yourself here: https://thesandtrap.com/forums/topic/99617-2019-newport-cup/?do=findComment&comment=1421967 Thank you!

  12. The 2017 Newport Cup is set to kick off in just ONE WEEK, so before we forget, it's a great time to start this topic and get the discussion of matches kicked off. The teams this go 'round: East (Blue) Team Captain: @iacas @coachjimsc - Jim Morgan (1.8) @DaveP043 - Dave Panich (2.4) @NCGolfer - Dave Koster (0.7) @jsgolfer - Jerry Scott (5.2) @cipher - Nate McPherson (6.6) @bkuehn1952 - Brian Kuehn (8.3) West (Red) Team Captain: @mvmac @Golfingdad - Drew Sebilian (5.4) @phillyk - Phil Kohnken (-1.0) @Pretzel - Tyler Faye (-1.0) @DeadMan - Daniel Prieve (5.1) @mchepp - Michael C. Hepp (5.4) @kpaulhus - Kyle Paulhus (5.3) Schedule Thursday, October 19th: Morning - Foursomes at Mid-South Afternoon - Fourball at Talamore Friday, October 20th: Morning - Foursomes at Talamore Afternoon - Fourball at Mid-South Saturday, October 21st: Late Morning - Singles Matches All matches will be a Nassau format with one point on the front nine, one point on the back nine, and one point total. That's three points per match, with three matches per session and six in singles. Foursomes: 18 points available. Fourball: 18 points available. Singles: 18 points available.* * In this year's edition we're making an additional six points available during the singles matches with a special Optic Yellow Get Sum. On any hole during the singles matches, each team can challenge the opposing team to play the hole with the Yellow Ball. If the challenged team makes a NET par or better they earn a point. If they make net bogey or worse, the challenging team earns a point. Before we get started, I'd like to thank the 2017 sponsors: Talamore Golf Resort - home to spacious and comfortable villas and lodging, a weekly pig roast, and two of the finest golf courses in the golf-centric Pinehurst area. Snell Golf - makers of a golf ball that offers tour caliber performance at an affordable price, and the company shaking up the golf ball industry. FlightScope - New in 2017, a pocket-sized launch monitor called Mevo, with a pocket-sized price and BIG performance for measuring and improving YOUR game. Mission Belt - No holes belts as seen on Shark Tank, now with a great new canvas strap option! Delilah Club Covers - Custom, hand-made driver, wood, hybrid, and putter covers, along with caddie bags and more. Frogger Golf - Developed the awesome Latch-It technology for rangefinders, phones, towels, and other accessories. PitchFix - Makers of the world's finest ball mark repair tools, customized with your own logos or designs. TRUE Linkswear - #EnjoyTheWalk with some of the best golf shoes on the market. I'd like to offer, too, a special thanks to @RandallT who will again be keeping track, either in person or off-site (but not off-"site" if you know what I mean ) of the current standings in a nice leaderboard that he'll post here in this topic throughout the rounds, as well as the likes of @nevets88, @billchao, and other members of the staff who will likely be monitoring our Twitter account @the_sand_trap and posting those Tweets and updates to this topic.
  13. I've uploaded about 125 photos from @mvmac and I, and if you were a participant or a huge helper (@RandallT), I encourage you to add your own images. Just click "Add Images" on the album page (I scaled my photos to 50%, so they're mostly 800 KB to 1.5 MB in size). If you have any troubles uploading, let me know. I can adjust the media allowances. Here, too, is a video showing just about every video clip Mike and I recorded. (Yes, it'll take awhile to upload.)
