    we used to have fake rocks as tee markers. they were OK but some were getting pretty beat (drunken cart driving, I suspect). then, two years ago, the pro decided the front nine would become the back nine and vice versa. everyone thought it was a dumb idea, but we replaced all the fake rocks with heavy brass signs, to the tune of $22,000. we now have a new pro and are changing back to the old layout. So we got new signs again. I don’t like them. we should have just ground down the numbers on the brass signs and added new (old) numbers. I especially don’t like the font on the new signs.


    Yeah, the middle sign is definitely the nicest. The new ones almost look like somebody took a cutout and spray-painted on the metal.
    Was he trying to go with a rustic 'Old Mill' theme?

    “my” course is very wet, as well. supposed to hit 70 tomorrow, but I’m pretty sure it won’t open.

    Bryson is the worst but what he did on that 6th hole the past 2 days is just awesome.

    He won hearts and minds this weekend.  Still not sure why he is disliked.  He is peculiar, but seems good natured.

    He is not just a bomber.   He won’t win every week even with the power.  Keep the fairways narrow and rough higher at the 290 mark.  Add bunkers and trees.

    on your computer, I think it’s called “stencil” font. :angry:

    Phil dropping out of the top 100 in the world for the first time since 93 is insane. What’s crazier is that he did that without ever becoming number 1. What a career

    ha.  Should have dropped out of the top 100 a while ago for conviction of insider trading.

    That is crazy.  28 years in the top 100.  That's one of those records like Tiger's cut streak that will never be broken.  He won at Pebble in 2019 and won a WGC in 2018....amazing how quickly he fell off.  Now it's time for him to dominate the champions tour.

    Sawgrass playing brutal already.  Rory +7 thru 9 and Finau +8 thru 11.  Not a good week to use Finau in my one and done pool.

    I love watching pros struggle and bogey holes.  Makes me feel good about myself.

    Shot a 90 in my first time out in 2+ months yesterday. Happy with how I played. Had I putted like I normally do, score would've been at least a few strokes lower. I will take it though.

    Playing the first week in April for the first time in a very long time. Think I play one real round last year and played a par 3 course near me at the shore maybe a dozen times.

    Laguna or something? I played there a while back when I first started golfing. Fun little course

    It's actually a pretty great course if they would STFU about 17 for a minute.  17 is entertaining but holy shit give it a rest for a minute.

    Yeah man. Laguna oaks. I dig it. Door to door walking around it just a couple hours or so. Pop out in the morning and am back in time for the lake or beach and shit. Couple fun shots there

    yeah...here’s my thing. Outside of Augusta not sure we see more of any course and I just don’t remember too many holes. 1,2,6,17,18 is what stands out to me. We’ve been watching this course forever.

    I’ve always liked Sawgrass. Reminds me of the original Tiger Woods game. Played Sawgrass on that nonstop back in the late 90’s
