  1. Bittersweet one today...one of the two holes I haven’t birdied so far is a 549 yard par 5 (#14). Tees were back today too. Nice drive. 3 hybrid to preferred approach shot territory. 9 iron to front edge of green. Drained a long uphill putt. Tee to hole in four strokes and a tempered celebration. Why? I could not find my ball after my first tee shot so I returned to the tee to hit another. Then Played the hole in four shots, but carded a bogey. Happy to “save” the bogey, but would have loved the birdie.
  2. David, Allen Park, MI Would love to test the 460 Swing Speed: 100
  3. Finally birdie #10. Pushed my tee shot right so I had to take an 8 iron up over the trees on to the green. Drained a 20+ putt for the birdie. Was in a 2 man best ball event where it was a net eagle for the hole, but was almost happier thinking about being able to X this one off the list. Two more to go to cover the course.
  4. I’m in (if it is still open). Dearborn Country Club, Dearborn, MI. A great old Donald Ross course.
  5. Anybody playing in the GAM Senior Match Play next week at Stoatin Brae? This will be my first time playing in this event. Looking forward to it and meeting any forum members who might be playing.
  6. Inclined to say TPC Sawgrass, but it was a rainy day so I don’t know how much to factor that into the equation. For some reason The Harvester in Iowa put a beating on me. Very windy day and first time playing it gave me nightmares on distances, etc.
  7. I have only played 8 and I’d rank them as follows: 1. Kingsbarns is incredible. Played with guys who have been both places and compare it favorably to Pebble Beach. Got to play 36 on a beautiful day there in 2016. 2. Old Course, St. Andrews. Hard to beat the majesty and history. The tee shots on 17 and 18 on a beautiful evening were near perfect golf memories. 3. Turnberry was gorgeous too. Locals were very positive on the changes. 4. Carnoustie. Definitely the toughest course we played (36 that day) and my travel mates didn’t want to see it again. May be a glutton for punishment, but I’d love to take another shot (or two) at it. It won the first two matches! 5. Gleneagles King’s. Loved the walk through the two older Gleneagles courses. First full golf day of the trip, so was pretty pumped about it all. Because we were assigned tees based on the highest handicaps in the group, the par fives played more like long par fours for me. Helped my scores. 6. Gleneagles Queen’s. 7. New Course, St. Andrews. Rainy morning, so it wasn’t the best time to evaluate (plus I was worn out from 36 at Carnoustie the day before). We played it in the morning before the Old Course too, so I may have been looking ahead to that. 8. Duke’s. Just arrived after an overnight flight and was jet lagged, so I may not be giving it due credit. For a week of golf it is hard to imagine topping this trip, especially when you throw in watching rounds 3 and 4 of the Open at Royal Troon. Once in a lifetime trip.
  8. Used a blade putter all of my life, but recently switched to help with lag putt distance, so the Odyssey (for this week!).
