    Looking forward to it. Won’t get a full 18 in with a 5 pm tee time, but should be a nice couple hours

    The front nine has the best ocean view holes.

    Ogletree says he wasn't concerned with taking Saudi money because "I did my own research, and talked to the smartest people I know."  Hmm.  Also says if he had won a LIV event without KFT status, he could've come right back to the PGA Tour.  Maybe not too bright.
    “smartest people I know”? sounds like something Trump would say.

    Well that is a lovely property. Get why it’s not the most strategic for pro, but I had a blast. I spent a lot of time in bunkers myself but had a few awesome shots. Shot 50 on the front, rental clubs, felt hurried early on, some shitty putts. Overall an awesome time. Skipped a couple holes on the back… the par 5 that goes out to the ocean and skipped to 14 and hit a 300 yard drive followed by what I thought was a perfect 2nd shot but was lost in the dark and nowhere to be found. End of round

    That course punished me the 1 time I played it.  Very long course, tangly rough, and the greens are sectioned so they play like tiny targets.  The ball doesn't go as far in that heavy marine air either.  I still haven't played the North course there.  The 2016 Weiskopf renovation has it looking good, and more playable than the South. 
    I've seen quite a few Pearl Jam shows.

    Glad you got out there.  I did alright on the front nine but fell apart on the back nine there.  Just atrocious.  Was fun though.  I did get a birdie though after I hit a worm burner that ended up pin high about 3 feet away.  I'll take it though.  

    Now get yourself up to Bandon Dunes if you are on the West Coast already.

    Booked a tee time at Royal County Down and Royal Portrush next July.  Now the wait begins.   If you can get over to Ireland for a golf trip you need to do it.   I looked at international memberships but so far none make economical sense.

    Those 2 are definitely on the bucket list.  Especially after watching the NLU tourist sauce series from Ireland.  But with 3 kids 5 and under, trips like that are many, many years away for me.

    I am in my 40’s and single with no kids and a job that allows for remote working, so it is easier to get over there.  I would like to start making an annual trek to Ireland as the courses and the people are so great.

    Scotland too.  The wife wants to go to Edinburgh.  She can go look at the castle, and I'll go play Gullane and N. Berwick.

    For some reason I don't get too excited about playing in Scotland, but definitely still want to go.  I really want to play Dornoch.   St. Andrews just looks like snooze fest to me without all the history.

    Was a very quick trip for work. Was a really cool experience. No birdies for me. One par.  Was fun.  Definitely would like to get Bandon

    I don't know about this take.  The Old Course is consistently tons of people's favorite course in the world, not just for the history, but strategy too...including Tiger.

    That said, I don't get as excited about the strategy as a lot of people since I'm not good enough to really think about it.  Do I try to hit a certain side of a fairway that will lead to an easier approach? Sure, but am I happy if I hit the fairway in general? Hell yes.

    Same.  I unfortunately don’t know what my golf shots are going to look like as so inconsistent.  Always thinking about some new swing thoughts every round.  I would love to get to a point where strategy comes into play more instead of just trying to keep it in play.  

    My comment was a little strong on the Old Course.   Hopefully get the chance to play it one day.

    Haha.  The name is like an old tattoo.  I haven’t listened or collected bootlegs in about 10 years, but I am stuck with it. 

    Do you still juggle?  Ha.

    He is the absolute worst.  Takes someone else's spot in the tourney and then WDs because he had a shitty round.

    Some LIV guys a bit higher on that leaderboard than I'd like, but those top 3 are glorious, along with Lowry's comments.
  • bootlegger10bootlegger10 Posts: 14,826
    But he isn’t a true champion because they only played 54 holes.  :)

    I love this.  Rivalry has finally made its way back to golf.  This is fantastic.

    Well I just got a lifetime membership at Carne Golf Links in Ireland.  I'm hoping that it will pay for itself in the long run with discounts at other courses and rounds there. I need a Britney Spears style conservatorship.
