FTFY.

Seriously, though. Advanced. Not ratings protected. 1050 advanced player... not a bagger. I wouldn't understand it, but not a bagger.

Only slightly off topic and I realize this was probably not your point, but there is no such thing as bagging advanced. Advanced is not a ratings protected division.

If you are willing to drive to the Cleveland area to play Roscoe or Parma, you should check out Punderson instead. It is by far the best course in the area IMO. I personally like it better than any...

I have played with Tony before. The guy can BOMB. It looked to me from the video that a course like that one will reward distance if you keep it in bounds. My guess is that he had some OB strokes...
