Since 2008, I would say this is absolutely the most fun event.  Especially this year.  Format change created an environment where you were rewarded with lots of rest and if you lost, you had many chances to get back into it, and hit to do it.  The cost was low($250) to enter so it reduces the pressure and it doesn't become so intense that all the hair splitting and complaining set in.  It's a nice warm up for the 45-50 guys going on to Thackerville in a couple weeks that don't get invited to the VWLDC events in Mesquite and Phoenix.

It's not perfect and neither was the grid.  I made it to the finals and struggled all day with that tee box set up.  Crooked and tilted takes some adjustments when swinging.  I don't golf, so this is the only time I got to drive balls on an uneven surface, so it takes some practice that I am sure experience and playing golf can provide.  Tom and Richard hit it when it counted, and the rest of the guys with years of hitting didn't seem to mind and it really showed.

The new guys, are also a great time to be around.  I remember when I was new to the sport and had no clue (still don't a lot of the time) and they got baptized.  Some newbies even won their classes, just like last year.  They had the guts to come out and see what LD is like, and even though they didn't do well they seemed to have a great time hitting, hanging out, and listening to the stories and getting info to do better next year.  I am sure it feels good to be a rookie when you are over 45.

Sam, great job for you and the crew.  It's a thankless job to put on an event.  For those veterans of LD that made this sport, if you are still following it, you should attend.  It is the chance to hit again and likely relive the glory days and hang out with old friends and make new ones.  It's more like a reunion than a competition.

Looking forward to seeing you all next year and a couple of you in a month.

   Thanks.....   So my question would be? Why do they look the way they look? Do they want the burned out, disease filled fungus dog track look? That's a serious question by the way?


Hi George

There’s not a simple answer but I can point you in the right direction.

Golf in Scotland is very conservative, women shouldn’t play it etc. Keeping true to the roots of the sport, not changing the looks, it goes on.

There’s one course for every 10k people in Scotland, highest in the world, declining numbers playing it, so tight budgets.

I’m with you, I don’t like links courses and don’t play them, I prefer parkland courses, I played a nice one today, hope that helps.

Whoops, sorry beasty,

Forgot bout the weather, I’ve noticed over the last decade or so there’s been a lot of drainage upgrading going on, we’re getting flash flooding n stuff in the uk in general, a 200 yr old bridge in England was washed away couple years ago, things are changing, drainage improvements are expensive and more of a priority than greens probably, but I have noticed some weird colours in greens, it’s like stuff is growing that couldn’t grow before because it wasn’t warm enough, jeez  ::)

At least you could still distinguish the greens from the fairways which wasn't the case at Chambers Bay!
