Ones in school for the day so one is safe. My daughter however, I'm sure will be getting in at some point. We can't hold her off from water. Her name is Fathom (nautical) and both myself and FIL are charter captains so she's always been around it. 

Never a doubt in my mind that somebody getting wet today earlier than planned. 😂 My daughter was no different when it came to water at that age...

I'm curious where the Loop 9-hole course is that they mention on testing your new clubs out.

It looks like they have an on site par 3 course at the center. I didn't get to check the whole place out when I went for my fitting since I was also visiting my sister. 

I didn't realize they didn't do Srixon, but I was there specifically for Cobra.

Good morning all! Shot 77 today at the home course from the white tees. 36 putts with 3x 3 putts and a chip in. Along with a terrible driver day did not make for a good round. Swing hasn't felt good the last 3ish times out. Might need to do some drill work. 

Can say the back 9 was much better than the front. Hit all 9 GIR just bad proximity and bad putting.

Par 3 tracks are so much fun!! As you said heck of a test as well. Back in the day Shell Oil hosted some shows called Shell Wonderful World Of Golf. A local course called Treetops Resort that has 12 championship tracks from Robert Jones, Tom Fazio, Jack Nickalaus, Gary Player and Rick Smith also has a par 3 called Threetops and it was rated #2 in the world for awhile. I stood 12ft away from Lee Trevino and watched him hit 8 iron on this 170 yd gem and drain it to win 1 million dollars!!! Back then that was massive money but the man immediately pledged ALL OF IT to St Judes!!! The par 3 thing brought me back to that day

I think I remember seeing Trevino make that HIO at Treetops on TV! Certainly nothing downhill at Pinehurst to that extent.

Yes sir!  It may be a new favorite activity for the evening after the kids go to bed. 

It's big enough for them to splash and play at one end, and the wife and I can relax at the other end. 

My place in Michigan is on a Lake and NOTHING tires out a kid better than water!!! That before bed ensures no wake ups before morning!!! Lucky kids!!

Absolutely!  It's just big enough for them to play and if they really want to swim we can go down to the community pool or the lake.

I remember those Shell sponsored "Shell Oil World of Golf" matches.  Amazingly, those started in 1961 and continued until 2003!  They were played all around the globe and featured the games top players.  In 1969, my dad took me to the Palmer vs. Frank Beard vs. Doug Sanders at PGA National Club (Palm Beach, FL).  I can't even remember who won 🤣.

Those were great to watch.  I think they would be fabuously popular today and something the PGAT/LIV/DP Tours should look into as a way to quell the upheaval and add a fun, new twist.

The oil companies aren't sponsoring anything anymore. Races, events and athletes were all represented by them for years but now they don't need the exposure they make so much money its crazy. That is the industry I worked in. So they have done two up my way, the Par 3 shootout had Mickelson and Fred Couples against Jack and Lee Trevino.  Then they did one at Bay Harbor which is a jewel!! Same players except Lee swapped for Hale Irwin

Thanks!  I'm sure that we will!  I told the wife, I wish we had done this sooner.

For sure. As soon as I rip out the dining room window and add my door and covered patio it will be great because we can open the door and hear the kids easily.
