Thanks Rob, I don't think either of them are on here.  I called them both this morning.  Beckett took care of his, I haven't heard from Danny yet, but I am sure he got the message!

it doesn't make that much sense unfortunately to work on a hole that can't be maintained.  Once we get the rest of the course aligned and in good shape, then moving to the extra areas make sense.

Who is Chris Dickerson?  .....Don't know where this guy came from but he is only an Amateur through turning down cash.  Even his PDGA page lists him as Professional (due to his then 1007 rating). 

His PDGA # screams noob, but this guy has been playing for a long time.  He is playing Advanced in the upcoming Carolina Clash, undoubtedly so he can play Am Worlds.

He's already making a running for ROY 2015.   Lame.


Not true.  You can be a 1050 rated Am.  There is not any reference point that you MUST become a pro.

http://www.pdga.com/files/2014%20PlayerDivisionGrid.pdf

There is an unwritten rule that anyone over 970 should go pro.   But the idea that 990 rated Ams are out there is very true.  I think that Wiggins in 2009 here was close to 1000 rated when he played Am, he had played I think almost all Pro events that year and turned down cash.  There is nothing I REPEAT NOTHING wrong with an Am player keeping themselves there until they are ready. 

Overall if you select to play in PDGA, and just joined, win some and then go pro if you want to.  The fact that they just joined could be an indication they are ready to play competitively now and they weren't before.  Or someone got them to join.  I didn't join the PDGA until 1999.  I had at that point been playing for 15 yrs, I had played in a handful of PDGA events, I just didn't see the need.....now I am sure that I wasn't a 1000 rated golfer either! ;D :o

it's all good.  Just be happy you don't have him as competition to your level yet, right?

I may have not just spent enough time looking back there to understand how much work is needed to make that placement playable.  I was only looking to use it for the weekend of the wide open.  I understand that it will take a lot of effort to be kept up and I wasn't asking for that.  I just wanted to know if the pin was still in the ground and if it was plausible for us to use that placement for one weekend.

the problem is that if we mow it, it won't get kept.  Then it goes to the wayside.  Spending that much time on one hole to have it vanish doesn't make much sense when there is more to be done.

Getting the long #7 that hasn't been used in quite some time is a much more plausible effort of energy for certain.  That will require more effort for sure.

What if volunteers did it?  Does it have to be something the contracted mowers do?

P&R says that they all ready have a signed contract for mowing the park and the field for L5 is not on the list, so maybe next year.

USM / Re: USM Ace Fund League - 2014

And a beautiful Earth Day evening it was!! Eight came out to enjoy the nice day and get another round in on the proposed new layout. doc stole the show with some steady play and almost no mistakes.
The same cannot be said for the rest of us...

Scores
doc Norby - 56
Tony Todd - 61
Phil Brice - 62
Tyler Forbes - 62
Mark Hogins - 63
Kevin Montgomery - 65
Aaron Miller - 67
Kim Todd - 73

With seven of the eight getting into the ace fund it now stands at $104.

We made a change on #10 and shortened it way up to make it an ace run with a water hazard directly behind it. The initial comments were that holes #1/#10 and #2/#11 were too much alike. This is being addressed and a different #11 will be tried out next week with another option for #10 in mind as well.
