So, AB and CD are both doing great so far this year. How's EF doing?

Here in East Tennessee(where Dickerson lives...no I don't personally know him, 2 counties over), you take the good with the bad. Its where one can start the round shirtless and in shorts and it be snowing before the round is over.

I will take that over having annual blizzards any day though.

I really really hope that is happening this offseason. Would love to see Seppo winning.
He leaves so many putts out there. I agree that he could be a top contender if he found a way to get consistent results in the circle.

I'm uninformed on the state of tour etc but I'm a Gyro pusher... so Dollar and Russell 2019!!!

With a soft spot for MJ and his fantastic Comets.. I appreciate his contributions to the mold and woods savvy. I love watching those throws.

I will wish "good luck" to McBeth..

DG's top tourneys now require exceptional play every round and everybody's everyman is going to play those top tourneys.


Uli just couldn't put it together every weekend last year. Perhaps, he's found an answer to the 10+ times he finished outside the top ten, especially in the big tourney stops where the best of best are pressing hard to make something happen.

He can't shoot 992 in the last round like he did in last weekend's B-tier and expect to place top 10 at the Pro level stops...

Who needs warm? This Saturday I'm playing my fourth tournament of the year, all in Maine. Granted, none have been sanctioned, but tournaments are tournaments, especially this time of year.

His putting got better toward the end of the year when he switched styles, but yeah. I'm hoping he can have like an Eagle 2018 year and win some things. His throws seem so effortless
