  1. Yeah, it’s a real bummer. Mother Nature can be a real bitch

With all due respect your 11 hits in a mile and I believe someone remarked that his SS is at the top 5% for his age group. You already mentioned that plays 6300 yards (shoots low) and is able to reach most 400+ yards Par 4 in regulation. What am I getting at, you cannot use his ability to judge the USKG 11 Local distance- that tour is not meant for your son or the top 5% it meant for the masses .. so let us enjoy it! > > > > > > @tiger .

  5. > @leezer99 said: > Does anyone know if he has status on any of the tours? The last two weeks haven't been spectacular but I'm hoping he has an opportunity to play his way up onto the big stage. He has no status anywhere. He’s using 3 sponsors these 3 weeks and then reassessing. He’s definitely doing Qschook at the end of the year
  6. > @leezer99 said: > Anyone watch him today? I see he's going to miss the cut but how did he play? He was fine. Just not good enough. His short game needs work for this level. It’s just a different deal on these courses. Have to be SO good on so many different shots. This isn’t a hard course but if you miss greens the rough demands precision and understanding that he just doesn’t have yet. Honestly though, I like his chances of getting there.

We have status already and I cringe at the idea of paying $60 for some of the dumps our local director books. > > That’s what I’m expecting. It’s good for getting more competitive fields at worlds or whatever, but I’m not so sure it’s good for US Kids’ business with kids playing the minimum. I haven't read the entire thread so maybe someone has brought this up....There's a lot of focus on how the new system will affect the better players and how it's set up so that they'll just play 4 events, g

Akshay was super with the kids. Very engaged, very positive and encouraging and making sure to spend good time with each of the 4 juniors in our g

I’m sure my son is hoping for someone cooler. Update: my son is playing with Akshay. I’ll be on the bag. Looking forward to it

  12. > @yellowlover519 said: > > @kcap said: > > > > > > It's okay not to know the rules of golf or have no clue. My question in this topic is what you've answered. Would you/your child just let it go without penalty because they knew that the other player just didn't know. It's never been a topic on how/who to address a rule infraction. It's not intended to be a topic on how to address a rules infraction. It's a discussion on whether some players should be given leeway in tournaments irrespective of level of golf with disregard to the rest of the field. This wa

But if you shoot 72 twice or (36) then I think you're a lock. But I do agree no one really knows how they plan on doing world invitations until they do them next year, but I do think more peopl
  14. > @JuniorGolfParent said: > My son played this past weekend. Course setup plays very short now. Driver/8i (and shorter) are now the norm on par 4s, and par 5s are reachable in 2 for reasonably long hitters. > > If I had to guess, Priority Status Level 11 will be needed to get into Worlds for competitive age groups. USKG says they anticipate Level 10 and above in the 18 hole boys divisions. Will be lower than that in the younger divisions and girls divisions.

Before you wanted a bunch of 13 year old boys. Now an elite 10 or 11 year old boy could do some damage from the up tees. Same thing for girls. Be interesting to see if you see a change in the all star team make-up moving forward. > > But those yardages are just through the sections. They don't make any since. Go past Sections and everyone plays the same yardage. So a team with little kids advances and gets crushed b
