    The only reason I would go to the Orlando LIV event would be to heckle his fat worthless ass. Boo Reed.

    but I’m a fat lazy ass so I won’t.

    More people know who KVV is because of NLU than because of ESPN, and if his articles were behind ESPN+ I imagine he wasn't getting that many clicks there. I can't imagine that it was even that hard for them to make the economics work to take him on and outbid ESPN (if they even wanted to keep him). Even if he is behind the Nest paywall I imagine he will have a more loyal readers there than at ESPN.

    when it comes to golf, yes. all NFL content gets gobbled up so I'm sure he had a pretty decent football readership at ESPN given that platform.

    Gonna play Brookside #1 tomorrow (in the shadow of the Rose Bowl). Always tempted to turn sideways from the tee and pipe one into the stadium facade.

    Looks good tbh. I may have mentioned, but I have gotten to know Rob Collins decently well the last year or so. He is a really nice guy and has told me to let him know when I want to go play Sweetens and he'll take care of it. I I hope to get out to Landman sometime this summer, it looks awesome.

    If you can find a twosome time that works at landmand I’ll go with you. Really sparse though. Not sure if you saw it but they are doing a golfers journal event on 6/24 where you might be able to get a weekend time.

    I heard rumors last year of an uber-exclusive club getting developed in Nashville area because some very rich people that have moved here are annoyed that they can't get into Golf Club. Hopefully this isn't it, because that means I'll probably never get to play it.

    I don't envision it being public at all. Just get annoyed at all the applauding on social media of building a course that will likely cost 150k to join that no one will get play. Definitely happy for the sweetens guys to get a project like this though.

    they'll never do it for a number of reasons but would much prefer the Fed Ex Cup playoffs end in match play

    No, what's going on? Love playing there but it's kind of a pain in the ass to get on due to all the old guys with standing tee times.

    Rumor is full re-do, new clubhouse and shooting for a PGA tour event or a playoff event. I haven't played it in a long time, good piece of property though.

    I hadn’t even thought of LIV players not having the big tour equipment trucks on site any more. Do they go to golf Galaxy when something breaks?
