I should be able to pull this off this year! Might have to sneak in a few work-related visits to justify the trip, but I would say the probability is >50%.

As your official profile photo taker, I will even allow a new more victorious profile picture to be taken and used. It would be good to meet up again!

did you get her a real putter or is she still using the garage sale special that more closely resembles a special effects prop then a putter?

Wait a minute!!  That Nike Method putter was generously provided by MGS and my first official forum test.  Yes, she's still using it.  I just put a new Pure Grip on it and she loves it.  BTW, she has greatly improved her putting from the last time you saw her!!  2021 Columbia Point Ladies Club Match Play Champion.

How can I pass up that offer T2W?!!  Little did you know I would have settled for 5 😉  I'll do my best, would be great to play with the spies!

I'll probably even bring the stuff to do a ball fitting. So as that to the bonus pool

I will put this on my calendar and will do my best to get there. My wife will most likely come with. We have never played golf in those parts.  The one big reason to keep us from coming would be on the dates of our daughter being home from college.  Won't know those dates until May.

Sure glad you used white balls in the photo. Yellow would have meant you were pretty backed up with beer and it was time to drain the main!

More likely jaundice.  Why is yellow a common sign of bad things?  Why is my favorite pullover yellow?

Just 2 months away. @Kenny Bis working out the final details on the golf course rotation, but some of the options look great. Who all is looking forward to this?!

I’ve been through Yakima a few times… too many. Didn’t get to explore at all, but I sure did not feel welcomed.  I was waiting for someone to abduct me like on the Hills have Eyes…. I’m sure it is a wonderful place though

Just got the go ahead from SWMBO, so I'll be there! 

Normally I get some golf in with my dad and brothers while on vacation, but since this summer there are two weddings in the family, this will be my travel golf fix for the year. Really looking forward to it!

We are going to have to add Gearhart Golf Links to the Rota next year.

Love Gearhart!!  The course was only OK, but I hear they did some renovations a couple of years ago.  The highlight for me there was Mcmenamins!!  There are a lot of them in the Portland area, and I always stop when I can.

I’ll be able to give a review in October/November probably.

Around St. Patrick's Day they have a "Nobody Here is Irish" Scramble tournament; my wife (who's Irish) and I played in it.  Fun.  Mcmenamin's has an Irish Stout that they make that is only available in March until it runs out and again 6 months later in October... my favorite ale ever!
