Really who watches the Super Bowl on Tuesday.
If I watched the Superbowl at all, it would be on Monday or Tuesday so I could skip the 100+commercials and just watch the 11 minutes of the ball in play.

Thanks for putting the kybosh on my goofing around in the office, sigh.

Even when the live coverage is just the final 2 days, I am very excited to see what another entity will offer up and how they attack coverage.

Plus, USDGC always has pretty good golf drama.

Interesting to see if they finally got the risk/reward balance right with hole 9 this time.

Glad to see the hazard change back to OB on hole 11. The hazard rule took all the teeth out of that hole last year.

Wow. Looking forward to seeing the changes and how the players adapt.

Don't care about live coverage this year...

I'M FLYING IN TO WATCH! So Pumped for this vacation. I was gonna come here to try and get info on schedule, not on the website yet - but understandable with the hurricane and important things like actually getting ready.

Biggest thing I need to learn - when/where do I need to be to sign up to play on Sunday? I'm flying from MN 50% to watch and 50% to hit a bucket list course, don't want to waste the trip!

Hole 9 is gonna be interesting. It looks like if u cross in bounds on an island, but land ob, u should get to move to the spot of last inbounds. Gonna make for some controversial calls there.

The last few years the Spectator Day tee times have been done in the Pro Shop. So when you get on-site, go to the Pro Shop and tell them you want to sign up for Sunday. Obviously, the earlier you sign up, the more likely you will get a time that you want.
Let me know if you have any other questions.
Oh, and bring some disc $$. They always have limited runs and hard to find discs in the Pro Shop.

According to the caddy book, OB shots will be limited to either the previous lie or to the drop zone, not last place in bounds.

According to the Caddy Book, there's a lot of Stroke-and-Distance this year, although you often have the option of re-teeing and/or a Drop Zone.
