Where are you playing tomorrow - Chicago (Round 3)


Recommended Posts

The state is opening up.  My kids went back to school for the first time since March.  

People will be back doing whatever they did before 2020 and will leave the courses to us.  

 

That or I put another 6,000 miles on my Harley again this summer.

Had a great round today and broke 90 for the first time, with an 89. That one and a half footer on 18 was intense. No 7’s or 8’s on the scorecard, just steady golf 

Hope everyone had the opportunity to sit down and share a plate of food with someone they cherish today. If not, remember those you miss with a kind thought or word. These times have stresse

Fitting process was better than expected. Very thorough.   Quick summary: - 2:00 appt for an hour. Costs $100 but that goes to the cost if you purchase a putter on the day. - Fitte

Don't know about the rest of you but it seems like we're living in a snow globe that someone is shaking regularly.

 

Hmmm. My globe must be defective. Gotta shop at more reputable stores. 🙂 Hang in there. March is only two weeks away.

Yeah, March and April are basically hit or miss, with more misses. I played 5 rounds in the two months in '19, 6 in '18, 9 in '17, 6 in '16, and 9 in '15. 'Have to go back to 2012 to find a March with more than four rounds played.

I got in 4 rounds prior to the stay-at-home order. I've played multiple rounds in every March around here the past 9 years. 

 

Are the course conditions and weather great, no. But, it sure beats the alternative of no golf.

If I remember correctly the days right before the shutdown were unseasonably warm and courses were packed. I played an afternoon 9 at Oak Brook and literally right as I was paying they said the governor just shut us down, and told me to hurry up and tee off.

My first round was may 6 , and I remember knowing that the weather had been nice for a while before the shutdown

I know we are in the cold hard grip of the off-season and we are living in interesting times, but is it just me, or has activity in the forum noticeably decreased from this time the past few years?

 

I think, for me at least, in years past I'd go on a couple trips in the winter and chime in with them on here. No trips this year, so I haven't had much to say.

I've been to the Mistwood dome a few times since my last lesson in January. I had planned on going today since my next lesson is next week, but stomach issues sidelined me.

 

Is anyone making any equipment changes going into the 2021 season? I really don't need anything, but the new two-ball line from Odyssey looking tempting.

A few hardy souls would usually play a few rounds in February, but that's a little tough at the moment. 

 

Tough round this morning. The wind chill had to be 52.

I've been testing drivers the past month. Ended up ordering the new cobra. Came down to the Cobra and the Ping - Ping was a little more accurate but I was getting 10 more yards with the Cobra. I am always going to hit bad drives no matter what driver it is, so I'll take the 10 yards 😂

Clubs 3-14 are all changing. Only driver & 3-wood remain. Already have the putter. Pix of the rest whenever they turn up, possibly in April?

I know we started playing our course in April.

All depends on what your course did. Lots of courses in IL were shut down for all of April, I think the first started opening at the end of the month. I've got my first round as early May. I know for sure I was taking my kids on bike rides around Oak Brook golf course many times in April.

Figured I'd throw a question to this Chicago group. Planning a buddies trip this summer to the city and we're looking at playing 3-5 rounds while we're there. Have done some research but wanted to see what you guys would pick for those rounds. Here's the courses I'm looking at. Did I miss any courses? Thanks

 

Cog Hill (Dubsdread) *this is the only must-play I have on the list so far*

Highlands of Elgin

Thunderhawk

Glen Club

Ravisloe

Cantigny

Stonewall Orchard

Ruffled Feathers

Mistwood

Haborside (Starboard)

Mt Prospect

SIM 9* TBD //  SIM 15* YS NanoReloaded 7S //  SIM 19* Tour AD DI 7S //  P770 KBS $-Taper 110 //  MG2 KBS $-Taper 110 //  Hi-Toe KBS $-Taper 110 //  Spider X SuperStroke 1.0 PT //  TP5X

You put together a really nice list, just know that Ravosloe, Mt. Prospect and Ruffled Feathers really aren't on the same level as the others.  Only two I would add are Bowes Creek and Pine Meadow.  It will come down to whether cost is a factor.  If it is, that makes it easier since Glen Club, Mistwood and Cantigny are significantly more than the others.  For me, the other must play on your list would be Stonewall...gorgeous property,  great conditions,  very challenging and has hosted numerous US Open qualifiers.   Either way, you have a solid list.

      This week, the PGA Tour is at TPC San Antonio on the Oaks Course for the Valero Texas Open. GolfWRX was on-site Tuesday to catch a glimpse into the bags of some of the world’s top golfers.
       
      The field of 144 is getting ready to battle starting Thursday for the $7.7 million purse, with $1.386 million going to the winner. The tournament is also the last event where players can qualify for The Masters, just like Canadian Corey Conners did last year.
