  1. How would you guys handle the tornado damage at the Ocean Ridge course in Brunswick County, N.C.? One aerial photo I saw showed downed pines scattered across a fairway, lots of others snapped off or stripped of branches. Do you call in a logging crew? Do you replant? How much does insurance pay?
  2. For those with courses that have removed a lot of trees, did you just cut them down and chip them up or did you work with a logging company to sell them? If you sold them, was it a good return?
  3. This article last year about Pete Dye noted his lawyer father-in-law told him he couldn't advertise himself as a golf course architect because he didn't have an architecture degree. So he called himself a designer. So no, you don't have to take any courses in architecture or pass any test to design golf courses. Though through his achievements he did eventually become a fellow of the American Society of Golf Course Architects. Pete Dye's Final Chapter - Golf Digest And I have a question: What does it mean when a course is a "signature" course? I assume the name person didn't really do any des

  7. The question should be what is the Tour Championship the championship of? It has a 30-man field. The winner of it is not necessarily the FedEx champion or the player of the year. If the Tour Championship is the championship of the PGA Tour, what is The Players the championship of? Here's how the modern four majors got designated: After winning the 1960 Masters with a fantastic finish, Palmer spoke about wanting to win the U.S. Open and PGA Championship. He didn't mention it at Augusta, but because the British Open was going to be played at St. Andrews, he had that tournament on his schedul

There's no need for 20 practice swings, multiple walks across a green, etc, take a few practice swings if you have to and hit the **** ball. I watch H.S. baseball and football games all the the time, their games don't take as long as the pro's, not sure why golfers think they need to emulate what the pro's do when it's likely they have no idea even why the pro's do half the stuff they do. &
  9. I feel bad for the guys playing with him who had to watch that. It had to affect their games.
  10. We have a couple of neighbors who play in the local PGA team events, and my son wants to play next year, and I'm all for that. I'm just curious, though, on the rules in these tournaments. I've played with them and the younger kid whiffed quite a bit, moved his ball around and didn't add up his strokes exactly. Not criticizing him as he's just a kid, but just wondering are whiffs and inadvertent ball movement penalized in tournaments, and who keeps up with the score, because it can get up into the low teens on some holes? Seems like you'd have to have one adult for each kid to count all the str
  11. After seeing the "do pros use broken tees on par-3s" thread on tour talk, it reminded me that I greatly prefer to use a found broken tee on any hole I'm not hitting driver than an unbroken one from my pocket. I'll scan for one for 5-10 seconds before pulling out a whole tee.
  12. > @dlygrisse said: > I watched Trevino smack the ground to create a dirt bump to tee it with a fairway wood. I saw Laura Davies do this at the '96 US Women's Open at Pine Needles. I think she was hitting driver.
  13. I played with a guy years ago who was built like a bodybuilder, probably not more than 3 percent body fat (really big and strong, not a "Rory McIlroy is built like a defensive back" deal) and it might have been only the first or second time he had ever played golf. In a 150-yard par-3 he pured a pitching wedge over the green. As for the OP, yeah, it's irritating not to hear the full story about how they're hitting "8-irons" 200+ yards.
