MarkWDallasTxCool and Rainy here today. 102 last week 82 today. I went to buy a Performance Sweater this morning I made three stops not one of the Big Box retailers had one available today. I just needed an excuse to pull the trigger early.
My ol standby came through...Helllooo Golflocker. Always a sure thing
I agree with others not sure you will be needing the Sweater much in Dallas but still good to have a great looking sweater. I was going to ask you have you played Tour 18 Dallas? I played there a few years back and it was nice and fun. Extremely SLOWWW round of golf and they needed the "Tee it Up"campaign going at that time. Nothing worse than playing behind a guy that is playing the tips and struggling to keep it in bounds and they won't let you play through as a single due to pride I guess.
I like the Tour 18 course. Concept is cool. Having played several of the courses that are represented on the Tour 18 layout they are close but not quite the same. Fun none the less. The best golf rule of thumb came from a Marshal there. There was a fivesome playing in front of a buddy of mine and myself. Same thing we had bumped them a couple of times ..but no offer to play through. They were spraying all over the course and not playing ready golf. They were having a good time. The game is suppose to be fun. However, the Marshal came by and gave them his rule of thumb and asked them to let us through.
"If you are two over regardless of if you are on the Green or not pick up. Nobody's Golf Handicap will let them take a Double Boogey."
I use that rule today.
If you like the concept of playing famous holes look at the Tribute GC. http://www.thetributegc.com/ Scottish Style links course modeled arounf 18 famous Scottish golf holes. I prefer it over Tour 18. If you get a chance to be back in Dallas with and extra day to play a round give me a couple of weeks notice and I will set up a tee time. Week days are best for me. My kids sports dominate the weekends.
