It's official! Monte qualified today for the 2019 US Senior Open. Not only that, he was co-medalist!! The conditions were tough, cold, and windy today at Valley Country Club in Aurora, CO, but he persevered!

 

I want to be the first to congratulate him! We all know how much he's contributed to this forum and it's great to see the golfing Gods smile down upon him!

The 2019 US Senior Open will be contested at The Warren Golf Course at Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana. It will be the first US Senior Open played at a university golf course or at a public course. Follow along with this thread as we get closer to the tournament.

 

Congratulations Monte and go kill it next month at the US Senior Open!

Congrats Monte!

 

How good do you feel about a top 20 finish?

 

.... I'm asking for one of my gambling friends. ;)

> ****, co-medalist with a even par 72. Must have been tough out there. Monte, how was your game? Good all around? Saved by short game/putting?

 

Was low to mid 40’s, windy and tough pins. I hit it really well.

 

I was so bad with the putter it was embarrassing. I missed a 2 footer for birdie on my first hole. I read right inside, it was left edge. That set the tone for the rest of the day. Didn’t putt horribly after the first hole, but I have been hitting too high on the ball and my putts are online, but not holding line very well. I thought I had no shot because my ball striking was great and the conditions didn’t seem that tough.

 

 

 

I’m not kidding when I say we could have gotten all the 20 handicaps on Golfwrx, put their name in a hat, drew a name at random, and if that guy putted for me I would have shot 67/68.

 

I was standing on 8 (my 17 tee) at 1 over and a little mad after missing yet another 10-12 footer. I found out +1 was low at the time.

 

I finally made one from 12 feet.

 

9 was toughest hole on course. 208 uphill with pin 3 paces on from the right with a strong right to left cross wind. 6 iron to 15 feet and burned the edge.

    • In-hand photos of 2023 TaylorMade Stealth 2 Plus, Stealth 2, Stealth 2 HD drivers + fairways woods
      Check out our front page launch stories here and here. 
       
      What you need to know: For the first time, carbon is the most prevalent material by volume in a TaylorMade driver, and more carbon equals better performance, says the company. Last year, TaylorMade debuted a 60X Carbon Twist Face. With TaylorMade Stealth 2, engineers are bringing carbon to more of the golf club — and unveiling a new-and-improved Carbon Twist Face in the process. Stealth 2 Plus (low spin, most workable) Stealth 2, and Stealth 2 HD (draw bias, high launch, most forgiving) drivers make up the Stealth 2 family.

      What you need to know: Breakthrough movable weight technologies and versatile designs are the hallmarks of the 2023 TaylorMade Stealth 2 fairway woods. Stealth 2 Plus is branded as “three fairway woods in one” owing to the unique performance characteristics afforded by the 50-gram sole weight. Stealth 2 features a slightly lower profile 3D carbon crown than Stealth. This moves CG down and away from the toe with more weight in the rear of the club for higher launch and MOI. Ultra-high MOI Stealth 2 HD features an oversized 200cc head and low-profile sole, creating an easy-to-hit, draw-biased club.
