Okay, here is a place for the Golfers to talk about tournaments, clubs, swing help or thoughts.

Today is the Players Championship, which I think ought to be the 5th Major. Largest pot in the PGA. The daunting 17th, which seems to bring excitement every year. At least we will get to see Sergio blow up yet again.

I am ready to see some water balls!

Brickyard Crossing and Purgatory (Indianapolis)
Two years ago today I was in the middle of my Scotland excursion. That's the best I got. This year the best course I'll play is likely Eagle Knoll in Mid-Mo.

My son wants to play Pebble Beach with me. Hence, the impetus to get my act together.

Yeah, you're the reason I brought it up.

Did you ever post pics of that trip?

I've never really taken a golf vacation. I've played golf since I was 10 years old and did play some with my did when we were out of town or visiting relatives but as an adult I've never taken a golf vacation. My wife doesn't play so our vacations are to the beach. I go play sometimes but I'm a onesome and it's just not a conducive situation to good golf. The Ombre at Panama City Beach is a course I played. Or Bay Point there as well. But it's just show up and play with no motivation and a vacation buzz. I never was a social golfer though. Hell that's why I took up golf, so I could get away from all the idiots.

While that would be cool, spending $2k for essentially one day (1 night at lodge, 2 rounds of golf) is insane.

I think I'd take that two grand and spread it out over several courses, or several days at one resort. Maybe Whistling Straights, Bandon Dunes, Pinehurst, The Ocean Course, etc.

I'm lucky, my wife plays, and plays pretty well.

For our honeymoon, we spent 9-10 days at the Fairmont Chateau Whistler and played 36 for like 5 straight days.

Scenic, fun course - until you get the airhorn blown for a bear sighting in the middle of your backswing.

Wife and I played Deere Run together 2 weeks after the Classic a few years back. That fairway bunker shot Zach Johnson made on 18 last year in the playoff? I was there first, and it's a bitch.

The target line is an imaginary line between your ball and the hole/target. You want to swing the club on this line. Swinging it outside or inside of the line on your backswing has varying effects on the rest of your swing and what happens when you hit the ball. You take the club inside that line on your backswing and the correction is the come over the top chop like in the video.

Does that make sense to you?

My schedule has always been such that it's easier for me to have two hour breaks than four hour breaks. As a result, I've hit thousands and thousands of golf balls, but have played relatively few rounds in comparison to the amount of range time I've spent. I've generally come to the belief that you can really only improve on the course. You can work on specific flaws on the range, but you only learn to play and score on the course itself.

I've always heard that Pebble's 19th hole in unsurpassed.

That sounds pretty awesome. Heck at this point I just like to find a good weekly group to play with. I need a game so I can stay on top of things because in a few years I'm going to start teaching my grandson to play. He needs to get off to the right start if he's going to be the greatest player of his era.

It absolutely was. I consider myself pretty lucky.

Then again, spend enough time on a forum like Golfwrx and hear guys tell stories about playing Pebble, Spyglass, Pinehurst, Whistling Straights, Erin Hills, Bethpage - like it's just a run-of-the-mill round - and it can bum you out.

I think my wife and I do really well for ourselves - but it makes me wonder what people do for a living to be able to afford spending a week at places like those.

We wanted to go to Pebble for our Honeymoon until I did the research and figured it would set us back nearly $10k for 5 nights and 4 rounds of golf each.

Then thought about Whistling Straights, and found we could do a week there for the bargain price of $8k.

That's what I love about a place like Deere Run - it's a tour track, and the most you'll pay is $95.

The wife and I flew out to Arizona to catch some spring training games. We played The Trilogy at Velincia and Cayote Lake . Trilogy was pretty nice.

I've always wanted to play Grayhawk. And TPC Stadium, of course.
