  1. New badge in the catalog. Thanks to @Pinger_MV for the suggestion: Survivor is for anyone that's overcome a scary sickness in their life. Could be anything, not specific to the big C or otherwise. If you're comfortable, we'd love to hear your stories too.
  2. Definitely better to err on the side of caution. I've accidentally pushed myself too far a few times already thanks to poor route planning. That's the good and bad part of training outside....you can't just jump off and be done.
  3. Happy to. Just need your transaction ID to add the donor badge. Feel free to send that to me via PM
  4. Just to chime in on the topic, the browser version of the site gives the truest experience. This would either be on a regular desktop or in the mobile/tablet browsers of your choice Safari, Chrome, Firefox, etc and it's my preferred method. That said, totally understand the desire to have a dedicated app. There's currently 2 ways to access it: standalone MGS app and via Tapatalk. The experience is the same in each since Tapatalk hosts both. Problem is, Tapatalk's software is steadily diverging from our forum host so the functionality continues to dwindle as we get further apart. This manifests itself in various bugs and errors that we can't fix although the apps are still mostly compatible. Sounds like there's not a solution? There is. Our host, Invision, will be offering mobile app support with the next major system upgrade. This will be great for us all in the way of a native app that will continually be upgraded to keep common language with the forum. It'll take the forum of a multi-forum environment like Tapatalk but specific for Invision-hosted sites. I'm really looking forward to it but am still cautious that it may take time to get it right. So, we'll be carrying the Tapatalk tie-in until we feel comfortable enough to fully transition.
  5. Ha! That's a super funny take. Sadly, I can relate. PS. You got the badges
  6. To use a line or not to use a line? That is the question. It's not exactly Shakespeare, but when lining up a putt, it's a question I'll bet you've asked your self more than once. Some golfers use tracing devices while others opt for the free-hand Sharpie method. Additionally, on pretty much every tour-level ball, the side stamp doubles as an alignment aid. Some companies (namely Callaway) have taken the conversation a step further with advancements such as Triple-Track Technology. Given all of this as the context within the ball industry, Golfballs.com spawned the idea of Align XL. Simply, it's a custom print option that places a straight line 180° around the ball. The result seems rather basic, but drawing a straight line on a curved surface is a bit more complex than one might think. With that, Golfballs.com developed in-house technology to maintain certain levels of quality control and fast turn-around times on all custom orders. Now, we want you to test it. Golfballs.com will be providing one dozen of any type of ball on their website with the AlignXL personalization. This opportunity is open to golfers residing in the US. To apply, reply to this thread with the following information: Location and HC Current line method Ball choice and personalization
  7. Fun fact, this change has actually made our short lists longer because we've got more people getting involved than before. I wouldn't read too much into the raw application numbers.

    Need to start shooting the courses now that things are greening up.
  9. Would love to but I'm sorry we can't. Besides, I don't think you'd appreciate it very much. The season has gone along so far at this point that the player pool would be slim and you'd never climb out of last place. We'll be starting fantasy football soon though and you're welcome to join that.

  11. Had a brief chat with Fantrax about the schedule and conferred with the other commishes. Seems the PGA officially counts the US Open and Masters in the 20-21 schedule since it occurs after the Tour Championship. So Fantrax followed suit and this fantasy season will end with the Tour Championship as our final event and the PGA as our only major. Sucks, but what can you do. Looking to 2021, I have a hard time starting the golf league right back up so we can capture these events. The leagues take a lot of attention so the prospect of running golf and football at the same time isn't very appealing. At this point, I think the best course of action is to continue our season with the original playoff format playing as many events as we get, watch the new fall events as fans, then start golf back up after football is over. Any opposed?

  13. So, have you guys forgotten about the league? I know I certainly miss it. The new schedule is throwing a wrench into our current setup so there will definitely need to be a new playoff structure. The other commissheses and I have chatted around a few options but I'm interested to see what you all think. Ultimately, the decision will be put to a league vote but let's talk about options now to see what we even vote on. Current: This one will closely mimic the FedEx playoffs and runs during the same weeks. 30 teams make the playoffs, 20 from the first event advance, and the final 10 will compete for the League Championship Points are reset heading into the playoffs. From there, the totals are cumulative (ie. points from the first playoff event carry to your 2nd and 3rd.) Bonuses are awarded based on regular season finish. 1st: 40 2nd: 35 3rd: 30 4th: 25 5-10: 20 10-20: 10 20-30: Good Luck Revised??? I guess one assumption is that the Masters will be our final event? Tough to say. The Safeway Open is actually the PGA's listed start for the 20-21 season so I'm curious to see how Fantrax handles this overlap. An important question here is whether we include the fall series or skip them with a big gap between the US Open and Masters. Then, the progressively limiting fields for the playoffs in the middle are kind of funky themselves. For assistance, here's the new end-of-year schedule: AUG 6 - 9 [ORIGINALLY MAY 14-17] PGA Championship TPC Harding Park, San Francisco, CA AUG 13 - 16 [ORIGINALLY AUG 6-9] Wyndham Championship Sedgefield CC, Greensboro, NC AUG 20 - 23 [ORIGINALLY AUG 13-16] THE NORTHERN TRUST TPC Boston, Norton, MA AUG 27 - 30 [ORIGINALLY AUG 20-23] BMW Championship Olympia Fields CC (North), Olympia Fields, IL SEP 4 - 7 [ORIGINALLY AUG 27-30] TOUR Championship East Lake GC, Atlanta, GA SEP 10 - 13 Safeway Open Silverado Resort and Spa North, Napa, CA SEP 17 - 20 [ORIGINALLY JUN 18-21] U.S. Open Winged Foot GC, Mamaroneck, NY SEP 25 - 27 Ryder Cup Whistling Straits, Kohler, WI SEP 24 - 27 [ORIGINALLY MAR 26-29] Corales Puntacana Resort & Club Championship Corales Golf Club, Punta Cana, DOM OCT 1 - 4 Sanderson Farms Championship CC of Jackson, Jackson, MS OCT 8 - 11 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open TPC Summerlin, Las Vegas, NV OCT 15 - 18 THE CJ CUP @ NINE BRIDGES Nine Bridges, Jeju Island, KOR OCT 22 - 25 ZOZO CHAMPIONSHIP Accordia Golf Narashino CC, Chiba, JPN OCT 29 - NOV 1 World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions Sheshan International GC, Shanghai, CHN OCT 29 - NOV 1 Bermuda Championship Port Royal GC, Southampton, BER NOV 5 - 8 Houston Open Memorial Park Golf Course, Houston, TX NOV 12 - 15 [ORIGINALLY APR 9-12] Masters Tournament Augusta National GC, Augusta, GA
  14. At :27, did......did he swing THROUGH a tree? Anywho, I'm pumped for a golf game. Especially one that includes a course editor. Golf games have always been plagued by bugginess but I'll still be grateful to have an option back on the market after such a long break from the Tiger games. Interested to see if 2K can avoid the pitfalls EA hit when they tried to bring it to the current gen. Only problem is, I have nothing to play it on
  15. New OEM Logos added: Thanks to @Pkkenny88 for the suggestion to add Sub70. You made me realize we had others that needed to be added as well.
