    TCUfrog got a reaction from Rob Person in Sand Valley: Trip of a lifetime   
    Boarding my flight back from Sand Valley and Lawsonia Links. I travel for golf a lot, and I can tell you this is undoubtedly on par or better than any other golf resort in the world. 
     
    We arrived on Thursday and immediately looped the Lido course, which is the newest Sand Valley course (although they’re about to open Tom Doak’s Sedge Valley this July). The Lido is a rebuilt course that’s a carbon copy of a 1920’s Long Island Club whose course was lost during WW2. The course is littered with blind tee shots, deceptive bunkering, and MASSIVE greens, the 18th green is over 22,000 sq ft. After that 18, we bounced over to the Sandbox, the Coore & Crenshaw designed 17 hole short course. Following a dinner at the new Italian restaurant, we packed it in early cause Friday was set up to be a marathon.
    With a 7:40 tee time on Sand Valley, the original 18, we set out on what can only be described as a golf sickos perfect day. 18 holes at Sand Valley then 5 $1 tacos and 3 $2 beers then a sprint back to the short course sandbox to play 17 holes barefoot. Once we finished at the Sandbox, we all sat down for another beer and a 30 min break before we finished our day at Mammoth Dunes, the David Mclay Kidd designed course and the most fun golf you’ll ever play. After a quick thunderstorm that blew through while we were on 15 tee, we finished the last 4 holes in absolutely perfect weather that you can see in photos below. Somehow after 53 holes of just pure golf our day got better when Friday night we got to sit outside our room and watch the northern lights dance over our heads  
     



     
    After Friday, we played 18 more at mammoth dunes in the morning in extremely windy and tough conditions then drove over to Green Lake, Wi to play a local muni, White Lake Golf Course and Sunday morning woke up to play Lawsonia Links, another outstanding track. 
     
    159 holes of golf later, I’m beatdown and tired but couldn’t be much happier.

    33ft putt this morning another 12' one putt missed an eagle putt this morning because I was expecting a break then lipped out the birdy putt.  Then I started questioning every putt the rest of the round🤯

    Flying pink elephant?  5:30 in the morning must have been really early for me this morning.  Just kidding it was a beautiful morning some great putts some terrible shots off the green, but putter was hotter most of the time.

    Haha, ya the Birch Hills airstrip is next to the course actually, but for small aircraft.  Closest commercial airport for me is Saskatoon.
    I love the Wilson 3 wood. I just swing as hard as I can and it goes straight. It's in my bag for one hole on my course.  Hole 2 is a par 5, if you crush a drive there should be somewhere between 240 and 270 as its a hard dogleg left.  With water on the left in front of the green.  I've been going for it every opportunity since I got the DYNAPWR 3 wood.  Coincidently I do have one eagle on the hole so far this year.  And nailed the putt with the TS-912!

    Was going to go to the practice green at my local 9, and it was just sanded heavily.  So I went to the range instead.  $60 Canadian for the range pass for the season, lol.  I usually hit in front of the matts.
    TS-912 looking good in the bag with it's black buffalo headcover!!!

    I played a lot of golf this weekend. Got 18 holes in on Saturday and Sunday as well as 9 holes on Wednesday afternoon. I decided to break up the two rounds between the two putters, but I'm going to keep the results blind until the end of the test. 
    Putter 1: Front 9, 20 putts. Back 9, 19 putts. Five 3 putts, Ten 2 putts, three 1 putts. Longest putt made: 8 Feet. 4 misses inside 5 feet.
    Putter 2: Front 9, 18 putts. Back 9, 12 putts. 2 3 putts, 8 2 putts, 8 1 putts. Longest putt made: 16 Feet. 0 misses inside 5 feet.
    I'm just practicing the rest of the week and then on vacation for a week. Will have a final round straight head to head to decide the fates of the test when I'm back from vacation.

    Played Blissful Meadows in Uxbridge, MA today. Short game wasn't very good, but still only 18 putts on each side. Struggled reading the breaks and did have a couple pulls with the TS 912 both under 4' that turned into 3 putts. I did have 3 1putts. Overall my pushes and pulls are way down and better distance control.

    A very warm weekend here.  Saturday shot +1 with 16 putts, and Sunday shot +3 with 16 putts on my local 9.  I'm playing really well, and the TS-912 has saved my bacon a bunch of times, as my chipping just isn't up to snuff at the moment.  Leaving myself longer putts than need be.
    Really loving the Flatcat Solution's weighted grip with the face balance combo.  It really makes it feel as stable as a full mallet, but with the feel of a blade.  Honestly keeping the clubface square is easy.  My pushes and pulls are noticeably down compared to the Evnroll ER2.  Especially on longer putts.

    Beautiful skies and quiet course made for a great morning today.  17 putts, but didn’t give myself very many close chances, and i know that 2 of the 3 three putts were not focusing errors went to tap them in and didn’t set up  and one handed them passed the hole.

    Played in  scramble on Wednesday at Norway CC in Norway ME. The TS-912 was really good again. The greens were pretty flat and either you had an uphill or downhill put. Speed control was good but we couldn't figure out the breaks. Saved par twice around 12' and birdie once from 8' . The other 3 members loved the look, took a few putts and really liked it.

    Aside from the TS-1106+ we can make all of our putters in face or toe balance, the short neck of the blades make it toe hang and the long neck makes it face balanced, we can also put the flow neck in our blades to make it about an 85% toe hang almost going straight down.
