    Okay fun quiz for you all who know who some of the young guns are on the full pga and web.com tours.. This is a picture of the Western Amateur sweet 16 from the year 2014. Matthew is top left. Can you identify/recognize any players here? Hint- one of them won about a week ago at Harbor town..

    Who's that guy third from the left, front row. Looks like he might make some noise at some major tournament in early April in Georgia. Maybe even contend on the back 9 on Sunday. ;)

    As an Illinois grad I have an unfair advantage here since I see 3 Illini there. I've got the leftmost 7 in the front row and the 2 dudes standing next to Matt. Won't spoil the quiz for others, but the 3 Illini are Nick Hardy, Charlie Danielson and Brian Campbell.

    A couple others I might have a guess on.

    Great pic!

    One thing I learned from that picture is that if you're a really good golfer your forehead is a lighter shade than your face.
    Kinda weird how Doug Ghim isn't doing as well as some of the other guys.

    To be fair Doug Ghim turned pro later than some of the others. He just turned pro mid 2018, I think.
    This year, he's made 5/7 cuts and is 32nd on the Web.com 25. He's in a good spot as of now to have a chance to get a card for next year.

    That's pretty cool. I think Matt has a perfect mindset. He isn't forcing things. He will bust out soon. You can feel it......

    I would find someone fun to play with who doesn't take it too seriously. Having a buddy that enjoys and loves the game no matter how he or she plays is a great way to enjoy golf.

    Thanks for following along guys. It has not an injury, its more embarrassing than that.

    Yesterday was my US Open Locals at notoriously challenging Classic Club. I had not touched a club for 8 days going into the round. My family and I went on a cruise to Alaska which was a lot of fun. My swing felt surprisingly good on the range but as I learned that was the range swing and on course is a little different when the lies are flat. I normally pack 10 golf balls for a round of golf and 6 or fewer for qualifiers (since if I lose 6 balls in a qualifier I won't be making it through anyways). Thats exactly what happened yesterday.

    I started on 10 which was the most difficult of the day with a slight push on my 2nd shot into the water. Then the next hole I thought I hit a good line with a drive but it didn't carry the water, then the 3rd hole a par 3 it landed on land and bounced into the water...not a good start. I hit some good shots over the next few holes but I had to get aggressive since I was so many over par. This led to a couple more balls in the water on the first 9. Basically my ball striking spread was wide and when forced to be aggressive in the middle of the round I had to still attack pins even with this wide spread. I lost my final ball with 4 holes to play and had to walk off the course.

    On Sunday I leave for Vancouver for the first event of the Mackenzie Tour Season: Here is the link to the schedule

    Hmm...that's a great point on not having to bring many balls to a qualifier, hadn't considered it like that! Good luck in Canada.

    hey, i'm caddying in vancouver the first two rounds this week and then course marshalling on the weekend. they had a shortage of caddies on thursday/friday last year so i thought i'd lend a hand those two days. so i will see you out there... i am caddying tuesday pro-am too.

    as per Point Grey, fairly tight, not that long. vancouver is at sea level so you will generally need more club (a friend of mine won in vancouver and specifically mentioned that). not too windy and unless things change it'll be dry and fast (you might have heard vancouver is rainy)
    no great insight on the course........ i think par 4 15th out to water is a key hole. fairly tight drive and then a very tricky approach shot (so you combine the 2 things it can be very tricky. not that long a hole though)... i think they are renovating the course (they needed a bigger driving range) so not certain how that will affect things)

    i will try to be there when you tee off around 8 am-ish. (can't remember exact time nor the tee but i'll look it up). i will try to wear an oregon state shirt (orange). will your parents be there?
    i would say to remember to check the pin on 11 when you get there. because it's not that easy to figure out from below.
    most of the other pins i think you can see.
    vancouver is wet/dry sometimes. dry on top but not necessary underneath. you probably have that in morro bay. if not, you must have competed in pacific northwest before.
    15th out to water is a really important hole. tightish drive. then alot of angles of approach shots are protected by trees. not that long a hole
