    Grand Canyon University. Haven't played it yet, but I believe Tom Lehman and John Fought (don't hold me to this) did some renovation there last year. I'm only hearing very positive remarks about the re-design.

    Since I'm in this thread...

    Next week I will be in Golf Heaven! I'll be playing in the LPGA Founders Cup Pro-Am next Wednesday. I've had the honor of playing more than 10 LPGA Pro-Am's over the past 20 years or so, and they are truly a blast!
    I'm playing with a couple of buddies of mine from CT, who are flying into town Saturday night. Sunday starts the golf extravaganza! We play 18 on Sunday at Quintero (never played it before so can't wait), 36 on Monday (18 at WeKoPa and 18 at Sun Ridge Canyon), and 18 on Tuesday at Wickenburg Ranch (never played it before) - and then the LPGA Pro-Am on Wednesday... Probably won't be able to walk come Thursday, but it'll be worth it! Can't wait! :thumbup:

    Quintero is quirky but a fun track. I was going to play it again a couple of months ago but they went way up on price so I skipped it.

    Enjoy the marathon!

    Don't do it. It's a trick. Larry has a restraining order on her!

    Anyone watch the end in Houston today?

    It was fantastic. Spieth, Fowler and the gang made a push but everyone tailed off paving the way for 38 Year old Jim Herman who FINALLY broke through and got his first win of his career on the PGA tour.

    It was really something to watch. He hung in there and held on while everyone else was making birdies and bogeys all around him. Then he was overwhelmed with emotion in the interview afterwards. Gave all the credit to his Caddie.

    It was really, really cool. Dreams do come true boys and girls. Congratulations Jim!

    Watching Spieth yesterday was brutal. What I thought was going to be a boring back nine
    turned into a disaster for him. Gotta hurt for a long time, that one. Good for Mr Willett!

    I once took a 9 on a par 3 in my club championship.

    Yea, it was so hard to watch, but he kept his composure and birdied the next hole to still give him a chance. That's what impressed me with Spieth. 22 years old and he was able to let that hole go and still keep playing. He is so much fun to watch

    I used to live solely to play golf, 2 surgeries on each shoulder... finally forced me to hang em up for good about 10 years ago.

    I was cleaning out some file cabinets a few years ago, and ran across a bunch of old checkbooks (with carbons) I was horrified at how much I was spending on the sport, no idea how I kept a roof over my head at that age, while golfing 4-6 rounds a week lol.

    I (reluctantly) dusted the sticks off about 4-5 years ago, to play in a fundraiser for my kids softball team.

    Literally hadn't even swung a club in 5+ years... Stepped up to the first hole (140ish Par 3) and stuck it less than 2 feet from the hole.. made the putt, then started getting harangued about being a "sandbagger, ringer..etc... lol

    I showed them after that hole... I think I doubled (or worse) on the next 5 holes before chunking my 3 wood so hard, that my hands and shoulder went numb.

    That was my last shot.

    Really wish I had just quit after the birdie. :D

    The cash you spent is the same with me, but my wife indulges me because I work my tail off, spend time with my grandkids, don't drink, don't gamble or chase girls. It's my only vice left, well except for a couple Cards games a year and Dryers Rocky Road ice cream. :D
