DD Facebook page provides a link, but they do say they are tentative times meaning they can change.

Went down to do a practice round at Jones Gold today.  Threw my Wahoo into a pond (hole 4).  Tried to get it out by throwing rocks over it and causing waves to bring it to shore, but it wasn't working.  Wasn't too upset because I really don't care for it.  Then another golfer came by, so I asked him if he had a Golden Retriever.  Sure enough he did, so I tried to get my Wahoo.....except that I wasn't holding onto the rope nearly as tight as I thought I did.    So it went into the water, rope and all.

This whole time, there is a girl sitting in the shelter watching me make a fool of myself.  I can't strip down to my grundies, because she's watching.  (Yeah, I know some of you would have, but...)  Now, I have to get wet, so I can get this stranger's GR out.  He didn't ask, I just did it as that would be what I would expect. So, after 1 hr 40 min drive from Lawrence, I played 30 minutes and am absolutely wet.  Tried to play 1 more hole, but it's 50 deg, my jeans are clinging to me like my son's skinny (tight) jeans do, and I am no longer having a remote amount of fun. 

3+ hr round trip drive, 30 minutes of golf.

You should've played the round out. It would've been good practice for this weekend since it looks like it will be a wet one.  ;)

Finished playing a solo round at Lawrence Centennial tonight at about 7:15.  While walking past the tee for hole 1 back to my car, Nate Doss, Valerie Jenkins and a third guy (I'm  pretty sure it was Justin Atwater-Taylor) were getting ready to tee off.  Pretty cool to see 2 World Champions playing your home course, but I was a little surprised they weren't down in Emporia playing practice rounds.

Great tourney with fantastic courses.  Too bad the wind made luck (lucky/unlucky bounces, rollers, knock downs) such an important factor (obviously by my last 2 rounds that is another part of my game that needs DRASTIC improvement...lol).  Awesome player pack (next time get more Buzz's and less Challengers for the other disc maybe?) and loved the poker tourney.  Thanks to all the volunteers and DD for a great experience at my first "A" Tier even though my score doesnt reflect it.
Sorry to hear about your luck!!!   :P

I had a blast out there this weekend despite the wind making for some painfully high scores.

Here is a video DD posted of the wind on hole 18 for the curious...

Ha that's awesome. What did you end up shooting there? About the only magic I was able to produce there were a couple pars and an eagle on 18.

What's more confusing to me is how you played the Friday tournament in Intermediate at a 944 rating?

That was awesome.  DD ran a great tourney from top to bottom.  The highlight for me was watching the top card on 12 at Jones, unbelievable what those guys can do.

How about this for a highlight...



Sorry for the lack of stabilization...but if you look close enough you'll see the Tank catch a drive off the skip!
