She's Paige S now.

And if you stated your last "opinion" in that manner, you probably wouldn't have caught so much blowback. If you don't like that she's working during the off-season and wish she didn't have to, that's fine. But framing it as if DD is forcing her to do it, with zero evidence to suggest that is the case, that's a bit over the top.

So what if she is working in the "store / warehouse"! She's rather young, no? Maybe she's had very little work experience (in the real world). IMO it never hurts to learn "Business 101" by the seat of your pants! 'Manual labor' combined with the 'finances' of it should be a prerequisite of life...even for 1X'ers. Was very glad I "flipped burgers" 46 years ago - taught me a great amount of things which I was able to use later in "my field".

Depends on what you consider to be a great course.

Emporia has a lot of courses in a relatively small geographic area, which provides good variety for practicing during the offseason. If there is one thing it is missing, it would probably be a location with very tight tunnel shots. A few holes at Cottonwood Falls test that, but not to the degree of some of the more famous wooded courses used for Majors and DGPT events.

I mean, in all honesty, I don't think anyone is going to go to Emporia and declare a course there the equivalent of Delaveaga or Smuggler's Notch. But between Emporia Country Club, Cottonwood Falls, both Jones courses, Peter Pan, Olpe Lake, and a handful of others, it does offer a decent variety of lines, distances, and conditions to play in.

Pffft. What traction do you expect to gain with an honest, fair assessment of the Emporia courses?

This is DGCR. Any hole will be deemed a "boring hyzerfest" if it doesn't feature a dizzying scatterplot of slender tree trunks that frame dozens of 3-foot-wide gaps.

I didn't say it as if it was already fact, but looking over my original comment I could see someone just reading my reply assuming it was indeed fact: "Please don't tell me DD is seriously making their #1 FPO player work the store/warehouse through the winter."

Point taken, thank you.

I forgot she was recently married, that has....everything to do with everything. Guessing Grady works in Emporia as well.
