My best tournament ever was Hotlanta at Mosley a couple of years ago -- made the island with no problem the first three rounds, and was only a stroke back of second when we hit 11 during the final...

12 at East Roswell isn't an island, it's a "fake lake". OB area of rocks in front of the basket area with the perimeter marked by logs (and paint/string for tourneys). Lots of places to lay up or...

For high-quality courses in a definite small-town environment, Russellville, Arkansas has to get a mention. Pleasant View (4.05 rating) would be one of the better courses in most major metro areas,...

I was the same way for 45 years. Could practically roll naked in the stuff and never have the least hint of irritation. My mother-in-law would always ask me to pull up the stuff from her landscaped...

Interested to hear more about that, as the parent of a 16-year-old who's participated in two Worlds, one in MJ3 and one in MJ2. We're talking about 17, 18, and 19 year olds: old enough to drive, old...

Pools expanded as of early this morning; definitely for MM1, MG1, and FA1. Also, the notes about FJ2/3 being full are no longer on the registration page, and the dropdown menu for division no longer...

On the fly, as I'm late for something, but I know there was a waitlist for MJ2 for Charlotte last year -- my son was on it for a week or two, but did get in. I'm not sure how they handled it -- if it...
