    Ironically Tiger is responsible for the level of talent on tour today. When I was in high school golf in the early 90's was an image killer. Tiger made golf cool (and lucrative). Many of these guys likely would be playing other sports if it weren't for Tiger!
  2. I played at Medford Village for 4 years or so and that course is the same way. After heavy rain the pro shop always sent golfers off the back 9 to allow the front 9 time to drain a little bit (plus there weren't really cart paths on many of the holes on the front 9).

    Tee times were moved up due to expected weather in the afternoon. Before the event used to be shown on tape delay but I believe that CBS switched their policy after some backlash earlier this year.

    There really is no comparison between the two course, although I struggle on the South with its narrow driving areas and smaller greens. Right now the South is in terrible shape, as the plan is to sell of some of the land for housing (I assume the land on the other side of the street). Concert Golf (the company that bought Philmont 15 months ago) has focused its efforts on the North Course and clubhouse (and rightful so).

    The new 18 is a huge upgrade. I birdied 7 last Friday. Great hole. The greens on the north are phenomenal, much better than my previous club. It will be interesting to see what happens once ClubCorp takes over and part of the South course is sold.

    #9 north at Philmont is a hard dogleg right. So even if you blast a 300 yd drive, you have a 260 yd 2nd shot up hill with numerous trees in your way. Its one of the harder par 5's to even lay up on.

    I just joined Philmont. The rough is brutal and pretty much forces you to wedge out.

    Could be an unpleasant start to The Masters

    10/29 major coastal low

    I am playing in a fundraiser golf outing on Monday at the ULGC at Torresdale. Hopefully we don't get 2+ inches of rain or I fear it may be rescheduled/cancelled.
  10. My neighbor and I were talking about this last night. I'm glad I live in the city so my lawn isn't too bad as far as maintenance but I usually go through a box of 38 lawn bags every 1 1/2 - 2 years and this year I'm already on my 2nd box (granted some were for shrub/tree trimming).
  11. Thanks Tony! Hopefully we can dodge the storms on Friday!
  12. Ugh! Headed to OCMD for a golf weekend. Gonna have to pullout the old shirts and hats that I don't mind sweating thru!

    Its Masters Week, Yes Sir !!!!!

    I'd love to see Langer win. But with temps back in near 70 and light winds I expect to see some low scores. Langer will have a hard time if he needs to shoot 66 to win. That also doesn't bold well for Spieth if he is scrambling all day, but at least he is 3 clear of his biggest threats - Jason Day and DJ as both can overpower the course.

    Sapril 9th Snow/rain obs

    I assume it will be fine by mid-afternoon when temps get into the upper 40's. Most of these matches go off 9-10AM though, although I suspect there will be some lengthy frost/freeze delays.

    OK - thanks! I'll let my buddies who are making the trip know - I'll be in a warm basketball gym.
