Maybe the guys out east would call this open because their courses are carved out of thick woods? I mean this course might as well be thick woods compared to some of the other courses in Texas.
I agree 100%! I also think that seeing a 1033 rated player on a course makes it seem easy for the average joe.

When I played this course i felt like I was playing GOLF!....and it was a great feeling.....

Side note- WTF aren't they using it for TX States?????? We Pros get stuck on one course while the AMs play 2.....all of them are good but it would be nice to showcase the newest course in Austin at an NT.

Hey Brad,

Nice win at Vic this weekend!

I just wanted to say thanks again for the discussion about your full swing concept, although I can't quite recall the right term for this. I hope to see/have more discussion about it sometime.

I have to also add my thanks for the Roy G vid! If I had read this thread before Vic, I would have tossed you $5 or $10 to start a fund for more of these. Watching this has shown me that so much of my other motion was wasteful and distracting. Now I seem able to keep my eye on target a lot longer, and smooth things out.

Great record last year!!! Looking forward to seeing more great rounds.

I imagine you put high expectations on yourself, and have huge pressures walking among the giants of the game in such a short time. I also think much of the crap your getting is just jealousy. You do seem to be taking it all in stride. There is a book by the great Richard Feynman that I would recommend in this regard, entitled "Why do you care what other people think". Perhaps some of that sort of sentiment isn't quite as appropriate in the social nature of the touring pro, but it might help maintain perspective.

regards,

moff

I heard that the requirements from the city are expensive and a pain in the butt, and I am pretty sure this is why most tournaments in the Austin area are outside the city limits.

Edit: Looks like the Ams are playing "in-town" courses. Maybe what I heard isn't true.

The reason we're playing the 1 course 3 times and the AMs are playing the other courses 1 at a time, is because you can't get a 3 day permit for the courses inside the city limits. so. they worked with the 2 day permits they were able to get, and manor.

I'd be happy to work with you. My emotional instability flies like a beat up stingray.


I have to know how you handle yourself first, costoid. Lessons start at 30$ hr



High five

I don't handle my discs well (sad face). Wish there was more footage of your 830+ bomb on YouTube.
