    A 67 would have been glorious but nothing to complain about with two sub-70 rounds out do the gate

    Thinking about tacking on golf in Scotland to this PJ tour.  Will be motivation to practice during the winter months because game right now is not ready to enjoy those courses.

    Hope tiger comes out with another solid round today. His ball speed is reaching 180! He's going full f'n throttle!!

    Also, is there a bigger douche bag than brandel chamblee? If there is, I'm yet to find this person.

    Was supposed to do a Scotland or Ireland golf trip this spring but not gonna happen with a little one on the way. I hear it's awesome.  The real
    gems are in some of the small muni courses. 

    Hopefully I can pull it off the following year. Golf, whiskey, castles. Can't beat that

    I hope you get there soon.  I hope I do too!  Trying to convince a few folks to fly over.  Definitely want to get on the Old Course and perhaps Troon or Turnberry.  Anything more than the Old Course will be gravy.

    I'm going to Ireland for the Open Championship summer 2019. Hoping I get to play golf somewhere.

    Driving the green and hitting the putt.   

    270 yard 2 iron into the wind.  

    Fix the chipping and things will get interesting.

    Fowler’s front nine was nuts.  8 birdies.

    Great week for tiger..i was most impressed with his driver. Now he just need to play more. Hopefully he can play more tournaments than the regular pre masters schedule.

    Torrey, Phoenix or pebble, bay hill, masters. shouldn't play more than that. I also don't love the idea of him playing Torrey, but just assume it will happen.

    With 2 WGC events in March which he can't play he might be forced to play the Puerto Rico open or shell the week prior to masters. Shell highly unlikely since he never has leading up to masters.

    I don't think a rigorous schedule is the way to go.  He knows Augusta better than anyone.  Get some tournaments in but a lot of practice more importantly.

    Was listening to Hank Haney's (not a Tiger loyalist by any stretch) show the other day and he's been saying ever since Tiger posted the driver swing on twitter that it's a swing he can win with. This weekend just reinforced his belief. 

    Really fun watching him this weekend. Can't wait for Augusta!

    I’m not sure he can play this one since it’s the tournament of champions. But if he can, I agree, he should.  

    Side note...anyone who gets a chance to play this course (the plantation course in kapalua) absolutely should. I was lucky enough to play it on my honeymoon...what an amazing experience!

    What kind of golf bags you guys have? I'm in need of an upgrade and have asked Santa (my wife) for a Ping Traverse bag for xmas. Cart bag. It's one of the few I've seen that have full length dividers. Good reviews on it.


    Boggles my mind that more bags don't come with full length dividers. I can't stand when my clubs get tangled up at the bottom and it takes more time than it should to push it in all the way (edit---HEY OH).

    Kapalua and prime time golf this week.  Love it.
  • bflynn1bflynn1 Posts: 1,029
    I get to play Kapalua in March when I go to Hawaii. They have a package that includes 3 rounds. Two are at The Bay course and one at the Plantation course. I'm excited and humbled that I'll get to cross the Plantation course off the bucket list.

    Nice. That's awesome. I was able to pull off one round on my honeymoon and played Poipu Bay in Kauai. Kapalua is definitely on my list though.

    The wife got me a subscription to The Golfers Journal as a Christmas gift, and I gotta say, it's fucking awesome. Tons of great stories and photography. Highly recommended. Hopefully it does well
