I'm in! And yes Jesse, that is an appropriate division for me! Still planning on having that island hole for one of the temps (between 3 and 4)? That pavement really chews up my discs, so I'll bring an extra if we're playing it. Cool hole though!
Have the doctors looked at menopause for the hot flashes? Ha. Just kidding. Glad to hear that you're keeping your spirits up.
On a side note, I have an update for you with my dad's prostate cancer. 6 1/2 months ago his PSA had skyrocketed to 29.5. The proctologist put him on a chemo pill, bicalutamide or something. Last week he was tested again and his PSA is now 0.25!! I guess the stuff is working. Although it seems to be messing with his hormones as well. It seems the chemo messesup testosterone levels. But he is ecstatic at the PSA. Keep trucking on!!!
Series Finale @ Streator is CALLED OFF!!!! Half the course is underwater and the pavilions are almost completely submerged. Dana will be trying to figure out a new date ASAP. Remember all our water is headed down there so no chance it will go down in time. Bummer!
Interesting, but VERY technical. Here's what I see. The top guys just light it up! 17 down is HOT anywhere. And at the Memorial, for those that aren't lighting it up, scores can skyrocket quickly. With so much water around, OB penalties add up real quick. Therefore there is a huge score difference between the average pro's and the top-level guys. Some of those greens at Fountain - sheesh! I'd have to swallow constantly to keep my rectum from shooting out of my mouth!
+4 from the Blues, -2 from the Whites. Might've been able to get #18 if I wasn't so tired and wet by that point! This should be a fun event guys! The Whites may be a little messy, but only for 5 feet or so. You can back up to get good footing. Looks like NO ONE plays the Blues, so those are fresh. I made sure they were all staked (some weren't) and even did some weeding of the big dead stuff. Looks like a perfect time for a tourney. All that long tall razor-type grass is laying down, so spotters won't be necessary. I'd imagine all the water will be casual as it is impossible to tell where it starts/stops. It is a fun place. Come on out for the inaugural tourney!
The difference between waterproof and Gore-Tex shoes (Merrell's at least) is pretty much name only. And about 20 bucks. The patent on Gore-Tex has expired, so companies can make the same thing for less. I have gotten shoes from Zappos.com online when I'm confident in the sizing. I have also had pretty good luck on eBay! I picked up a pair of Gore-Tex Moab's for $70 w/ shipping and I think they may have been worn once! I'm just careful to pick ones that have a LOT of pictures and I look carefully at the soles to see wear. I also picked up some anti-fungal foot spray from Target (the bowling alley stuff) and SOAKED them before wearing.
Recently the trend towards spikeless in golf shoes has piqued my interest. I think next time I may head to a golf store and check some out. Some of those soles look pretty mean. And they come in some crazy colors!
