Really happy for DJ.  He was choking up during the award presentation, you can tell how much this meant to him.

Echo the previous sentiments, it was glorious to see Bryson suffer. Probably the easiest player besides Patrick Reed to root against, and he might be passing him in those rankings.

My boys and I competed in the Philadelphia Disc Golf open this past weekend.  All three of us "cashed" and took home some prizes.   So cool to share a new sport with the juniors.   Looking forwar

Back from the Azores. Tom may want to relocate. Temps in the 70s. A brief shower or two most days.Thick, weed-free Bermuda grass on lawns and golf course.  Looked bullet-proof.

My 8 yr. daughter’s school project (planting sunflower seeds after shutdown) has umm....been a success. She is ecstatic, 10-12 feet later.

#1 - Up to this point the lack of fans at golf tournaments doesn't seem to have really impacted the game however the Masters without fans is not the Masters.

#2 - If the only thing your watching is news then God bless you for not slicing your wrists by now. There is no bigger steaming pile of dung than the vast majority of local, network & cable news outlets.

It was only natural the Bryson would garner quite a bit of pre tourney hype after winning the US Open but that 67 is par for me at Augusta comment really raised some eyebrows. He was part of the early opening round streaming coverage & never looked comfortable from his 1st tee shot. He appears to have righted the ship today at 12 and has an eagle putt on 13 to start tomorrow so with 15 & 16 still to play he has a solid chance of making the cut. It's amazing what pressure & the spotlight can do to some golfers that's why Tiger performing at enormously high level while always the focal point of every tournament he plays is such an achievement. 

Wolff also rec'd quite a bit of hype coming in & he's definitely missing the cut.

Tomorrow looks light another green light day weather wise with little wind. Could be some 20 mph gusts SUN so maybe the course as we normally know it show up for the final round.


 

 

I have to disagree with #1. The masters is the course. Yea, sucked without that fanfare and the roars, but that course is absolutely gorgeous and stunning.never gets old to look at . The green fairways, with the Pine straw contrast... man, just beautiful.

Heading out to Fox Hollow to play a round in a couple hours. Seems like many others doing the same, no tee times left for today.

 

I looked to book on Tuesday, and every course within 20 miles had no tee times.  Stinks.  Funny, there is Fox Hollow course in my town too.

Yup! I booked on Monday and it was sold out today. Weather was A+ on the course today and play moved well. They are booked all weekend.

I am headed out to Loch Nairn this morning. Anyone ever play there? It's only my second time out this year so I'm sure it will go well. 

How did it go? Nice little course. Lots of small ponds/creeks. Old farmhouse makes attractive 19'th hole. For some reason doesn't get much play during the week.

Figured this was the best place to ask this, but as you can see from my above photo, we put some inflatables on our lawn for Christmas.

Since this is literally the first time my wife and I have been able to do this, what's the general care instructions for our Christmas lights based off of the forecasted snow tomorrow? I'm guessing that we should at least unplug everything - but I'm not sure how to handle the inflatables. Remove them from the yard completely or just uncover them once the snow is done? 

I just have no experience in this area at all.

Had to head down to Egg Harbor, Twp. to find some open courses, thanks to a family connection were able to get a tee time at Harbor Pines as all the places down there were booked solid. Equally fortunate to finish 18 since there was a 2 hour frost delay & we didn't get started until 12:00. Very slow play with backed up tee times & golf path only. I don't know how they'll stay open after the next monsoon, many holes are completely saturated. Always good to squeeze in a winter round whenever possible.

Played Eagle Ridge in Lakewood, NJ for the 1st time Thursday, very nice 27 hole public course. Greens were still pretty wet however the rest of the course was in great shape as it drains well over in that area. Unfortunately the new ownership leaves much to be desired & are looking to develop the property that's not on the landfill. Quite a battle going on with the local residents who are fighting the development. 

WED / THURS this week looking like nice winter golfing days.

Eagle Ridge was once a quarry for the little orange/brown pebbles you see on many shore house property. Good course. One nine is so far away from the clubhouse that you need a cart to get there. But it is the best nine .I know what you are talking about the future development but it would be politically incorrect to mention the responsible party.

It was....challenging :)  First course where I've really felt like I needed to put my driver away on more than a couple holes.
