Stooch...where in Ontario do you live?

 

Timmins Area

Igloo...perma frost country...lol.

The furthest north in Ontario for me.

Thunder Bay...and extension business trip from Winnipeg....TB's results rolled into the Peg.

Then Huntsville and Ottawa...though Ottawa is considered more east than north.

 

Golf must be so cheap in Timmins with a short season??

Considering tomorrow might be a wash and to waste your time.

Talking about fake Koreans :taunt: .....this is a good interview from Jenny Shin.....nickname Jtibs...and I think she did a silly interview with an Australian?? accent when she won this event a few years ago.

 

Jenny talks about her struggles after her win and about the cultural differences between Korea & the US.

As much as we talk about how well Minjee Lee is well dressed....Jenny is also another well put together pro on the course.

Right now, they are showing tee times starting at 11:15 with the last time at 6:16. Not sure that will happen as there's a 100% chance of rain through noon.

 

I think it's very possible that half the field won't even have played a hole yet at the end of the day.

I hate the idea of wiping scores to provide "fair" conditions for the entire field. I am not a pro and I rarely play golf but there are times that I've been on the tennis court and it starts out cool and windy, as the morning progresses it gets warm, balmy and the breeze stops. For a player that isn't in great physical shape, the morning provides more favorable conditions for that player to do well. As the temperature rises that player's physical condition can be exploited and used to the challenger's advantage.

 

In her pre-tournament interview, Angela Stanford talked about the wind and growing up in Texas and knowing what to expect in the wind, so should she not be allowed to play because she knows what to expect, has played in the wind and her experience wouldn't be fair for everyone?

 

I am not talking about safety, if there is lightning and/or course fixtures are blowing around like they were in New Zealand ( which by the way, didn't seem to be cause enough to cancel play then) but in that case we would need to wipe scores. Conditions are often different from morning and afternoon waves. Sometimes it's chilly and windy in the morning and then warm and balmy in the afternoon. Those things affect the condition of the course and scoring opportunities so should field sizes be reduced to accommodate and make sure there is only a morning wave?

 

Even the way pairings are done give priority to certain players and players have talked about if you're in the marquee groups, it's scheduled that way since the course isn't as beat-up. I think Christina Kim even talks about this in her book.

 

The forecast wasn't ever changing yesterday afternoon, who knows where they were looking. Any weather radar demonstrated the storms had passed around 1:00 pm. There is light until about 8:15pm-8:30pm so round 1 could have been nearly completed.

They canceled the first round because 30 or so players reported that their balls were moving on the greens. As Judy mentioned yesterday, they'll suspend play if one hole is causing problems. In this case it was widespread.

I don't know they'll get anyone on the course today - admittedly I'm a few hours south, but it's brutal out right now.

Really dark/low vis/lightining/hail/rain/flash floods warning txts... so where are they playing next week? ;)

I'm about 15 minutes up the road from the course and it looks like the nasty stuff has passed. Still some light rain and it's pretty cloudy, but not horrible. The issue is going to be the course condition after 2 days of getting schwacked by mother nature.

 

Where about do you live? I'm also about the same time away.

Bummer. These events don't run without the numerous volunteers. Asking them to show up on Monday when they likely have work is a tough ask.

Start time now pushed back to 2:30 :(

Looking more and more like a 36 hole shoot out for 100 grand, wouldn't be an official win if that's the case

If it's a wash-out on Saturday too.

I think all the 144 pros will go to the main club house ball room at 6pm on Saturday and do a 24 hour Texas Hold Em poker event for 3/4 of the purse....Dame Laura Davis is a HUGE gambler...I'm giving her 20:1 odds to win. :taunt:

      MEZZ.1 is our new mid-mallet putter that’s fully CNC machined from a billet of 6061 aircraft aluminum (body) and 303 stainless steel (midsection) to create our best-feeling — and we think best looking — putter to date. It includes 10 weights (eight on the bottom, two on the sides) that allow us to individually build each putter to a golfer’s exact specifications.

      In a post below, answer the following questions.
       
      1. City, State?
