Wow! You know this got me thinking...My first snarky question was going to be: "I wonder how many tour trucks they'd need to deal with all those guys?", then it immediately struck me that getting those trucks to Hawaii is kind of a problem...A big problem. I really wonder now how any of the OEMs deal with that particular logistical issue...I would think that it would be too wasteful to keep something there all year that only gets used, what, 3-4 times a season? Maybe...How the heck does that work???

They can afford it.

They use the local reps, don't think they send the trucks out here, I've never seen them. I know Kevin Na went to the same place I had my Mizuno fitting done to dial in some stuff a couple years ago.

Side note, we have arrived boys!IMG_20190111_114217.jpeg

Not much chatter about this today. I'm still rooting for Kuch but geeez he faded on the front today. Thankfully the birdie on 9 evened him up with Putman.

Hope he gives his caddy at least enough for a plane ticket back to the mainland.

Great win for Koooch!!  He certainly likes the back nine.

It was a great win for him. He was really nails down the stretch. You just got the sense that it was his after that bird on 9. Just so relaxed and calm.

It was interesting watching the facial expressions of the 2 during the last round.  Kuch's frown turned upside down after the birdie on 9 and you could tell that Putnam knew he lost it from that point on. 

BTW I liked those Hawaiian themed Ping hats!

Indeed! Just like the old bull & the young bull story...

      Took about a year, but now have officially flipped my bag for the first time. Year before, I began inundating myself in golf knowledge and equipment. Learned how the swing path and club face work together, how to shape shots and have made great progress. Now I know exactly what I'm doing, and most often know why. So far I've seen my handicap drop significantly, (15-17 down to 5-8). Technically at this point, I'm a 5 handicap, but that was one score out of 5 (5, 18 hole rounds. I've played quite a bit of 9 hole rounds) and I believe I'm closer to an 8 realistically. But maybe I'll be lower and near a 5 this year with thMP-18e clubs in my bag fully updated and have more experience with each club.
      Updated my driver and 3W shaft as well after getting them last year and I think that will be a game changer and lower my scores by hitting more fairways. Drastically improved my iron game with getting fitted and buying Mizuno MP-18 mixed set. Can shape my shots and get very consistent distances, so I'm pretty excited for this year. Wedge game improved quite a bit too and now have rounded out the SM6 set completely. Also really excited as I've been rolling the new Taylormade TP Black Copper Juno nicely in the basement, and getting very consistent rolls and forgiveness. Never have really been excited about a putter, but the black copper is sexy, and it performs.
      Looking to get on simulators a few times this winter, heated driving range a few times, a big golf show to attend, Taylormade demo fitting, and plently of swinging and putting in the garage and basement. Looking forward to early spring and am optimistic for my best golf yet.

      Trying to not get overly excited for Jan golf trip and hoping that mother nature doesn't deposit her first snowstorm on us in New England around my departure date.
