  1. So there was a US Amateur Qualifer at a local club today that I used to belong to. A young acquaintance of mine was playing and a good friend caddying for him. So I decided to go walk their first 9 this morning with them before heading into work. It was an eye opening experience. I got to see a lot on the range. It was filled with a bunch of "flat bellies" who all had the Jordan Spieth, Matthew Wolff, Collin Morikawa, Wyndham Clark etc look. In other words, young athletic and tour looking swings. It was impressive to see. Even more impressive. Having played this cours
  2. From the news feed today. It's sad that the first time I've heard this story was for Forest Fezler's passing but I'm glad to have read it nonetheless (I'm actually younger than the event itself ). Besides the fact that he had a hell of a golfer name, I think it's so awesome he had the guts to publicly throw a middle finger to the USGA in its biggest event. It's one thing to do it before missing the cut, it's another to do en route to a runner up finish on the 72nd hole. I'm sure this was quite controversial when it happened but could you imagine how bad it would be if someone did i
  3. Colorado Springs, CO - The Broadmoor is hosting the 39th U.S. Senior Open this week. http://www.usga.org/content/usga/home-page/championships/2018/u-s--senior-open.html#!Latest The Broadmoor is celebrating its centennial this year. Over a rich 100 year history, the resort has hosted 8 USGA Championships (6 on the East Course). The 2018 US Senior Open is shaping up to be yet another feather in the cap of this 'AAA Five Diamond' facility's impressive list of successful USGA Championships beginning with Jack Nicklaus' victory in the 1959 U.S. Amateur. Playing at ~6000 feet of altitude

  5. Last week on Tuesday and Wednesday I observed the Washington State Golf Association (WSGA) process for rating golf courses. Why did I do this? Well, I was curious why I could shoot certain scores on some courses, but not fair that well on other courses with similar ratings and slopes. I'm still not sure about that, but at least I now know (sort of) the process used to come up with those ratings. The team was led by the WSGA Director for Handicapping and Course Rating who is a WSGA employee. The five other team members are volunteers that have gone through a training program to learn
  6. Say what you want about the USGA, but they do provide some useful information -- a good guide on how to set up a match between a high and a low handicapper playing from different sets of tees... Setting the Proper Course For a Two-Tee Match By Jonathan Wilhelm, USGA November 26, 2014 Just one extra calculation is needed to correctly allocate handicap strokes for players competing against each other from different sets of tees. (USGA/Don Liebig For the average golfer, understanding the USGA Handicap Systemâ„¢ might not seem like the easiest of tasks. And while making heads or tail
  7. A study by the R&A ranks these five factors as the main issues of pace of play. Do you agree? USGA findings are in red. My thought is improper use of carts can be a major contributor to slow play. Get the chart in the general area and then go look for your ball, bring some clubs, hit and move along...
