    I'll need a good report, especially where to hang out at night.

    Is it a nest event?

    Are you doing anything else at the resort other than The Cradle?

    Not sure what all is there, I’ve never been. We’re staying at the Carolina Hotel and have a couple of dinners booked (Carolina Dining Room and 1895 Grill). Any recommendations or suggestions are appreciated

    This is my second trip, but the first was summer 2020 so the resort was very different then. This is a group of 64 total, they did a drawing for Nest members and I made the cut. The group has 3 days planned and I added an extra day with a round at Pacific and Preserve. Absolutely pumped, even though I’m playing some of the worst golf I’ve shown in recent years

    I know it's barely Thursday afternoon, but I'm #1 out of 2500 in daily fantasy and my dumbass accidentally picked a pool that doubles your money for everyone who finishes in top 45%. So payout for 1st is the same as 1000th place. :facepalm:

    That’s where I got married last summer so I still have access for a foursome to play through this summer. Even with paying for a wedding, it’s still $400 per person, so haven’t gotten much interest from others. Got some fantastic wedding pics though

    Brendan Porath brought up an interesting thing. Obviously Kevin NA doesn’t move the needle. But Kevin Na winning big purses over and over again might get young up and comers gringing away on the Latam or Korn Ferry to reassess their situation and start to create a little momentum for these idiots.

    That's not really a novel concept by Porath or anything considering that's essentially what Norman himself says in that article. That's basically their plan and imo their only hope of ever getting any traction.

    True but I was thinking more in terms of peeling off top 100 guys. The idea of young ballers migrating over seems more plausible (yet also something these kind of people don’t have the patience to wait to materialize).

    This is a bit captain obvious, but it’s all going to depend if the PGA or other governing bodies has any teeth. I don’t see young up and coming players forgoing a chance at a US Open for a paycheck. Even then may be hard to peel them away. Maybe I’m not being realistic though. I think their best bet is getting someone like Homa, not him specifically, but a 30 year old top 50 player who probably isn’t going to win big

    No. Played all the courses at Bandon. Everyone one was amazing. Going against the grain here but Pacific was my least favorite. Played it twice. Just didn’t do it for me. My rank on courses there. Sheep, Bandon, Trails, Ole Mac and last is Pacific. The short course is amazing in it’s own right.

    Duggans downstairs. It’s a dive but if you’re in a large group and like darts it’s great. Great place to get drunk. The village is a cool place to walk around. Day or night. I thought the Cradle was pretty meh in the grand scheme of things. #4 is the best course there.

    From every list I’ve ever seen, that’s not against the grain at all. Pacific is the highest rated but seems to consistently be last for the average player. My list is the same as yours, but I go back and forth between Trails and Mac. Sheep is just so much fun.

    You’re absolutely correct. Trails and Mac were awesome but Bandon and Sheep are just special.

    Anyone making the trip, I highly suggest the NLU vids on Bandon. Also the podcast episode is great.

    I know PaulKemp just johny the 200’s. I held them in my hands today and we very enticing. But I told myself I’m allowed to get fit for new irons 2 years from now, and I didn’t need to make any more purchases…four hours later I went back to the store and left with a new “matching” fairway wood.

    Did the course last summer. Clubhouse started late fall although it shockingly is lasting longer than it should be. Now the state cut every tree to the right of one to widen the road which is fun

    I haven’t hit a Titleist fairway wood since the early 2000s until today. Met up with a fellow junkie (had a failed CL sale but realized we were both headcases and should hang out) on the range today and hit his new used TSI2 3 wood. Tensei 65g S. It was really good
