Who's name will go on the trophy?


No expense was spared fabricating a custom trophy.

BAD LUUGI II excitement builds.


With the tournament less that 24 hours away, crowds are beginning to line up at the gate, with some fans reportedly planning to sleep in makeshift shelters on the course to ensure great vantange points to watch the action. Record breaking galleries are predicted.




The course is ready

Weather conditions are uncertain for the tourney.

I was not happy to see 12th pin back on the green.

I would've preferred to have it remain a temp for another day. Spent some time to be sure the green was playable. Heads are going to roll over this.

At my insistence, the ground under repair fence ...

... Between 6 and 10 has been removed and the entire area re-sodded.

Follow-up inspection underway

On 18 in regulation ...

... after a rare 185 yard 3 wood off the deck. 40 foot 2 putt for a par. Greens are rolling true, although a bit slow in heavy fog. No rooster tails, but balltracks visible in the dew assist reading the greens.

The greens have been fertilized

I have instructed them to cut the greens fast. I was not happy with the condition on 12 so instructed the course to set up a temp for a day to give the hole a chance to recover.

Up early for a surprise inspection on the greenskeeper prep of the track

Bob is really happy now ...

After I pressed down 5 skins on 18 and lost.

Rick wasting time

Traditional 17 portrait

Bob is in a better mood.

After a birdie on 15. I still think he needs stiffer shafts.

I don't like trend going into 14

Worst lie ever.

Analyzing the situation.

Visualizing with a practice swing.

And out!

Adam duffs one on 8 ...

but gets a nice drive off on nine...

Bob lines up birdie putt...

While I wait for mine. Yes that is my approach shot on the number 1 handicap. I got the kick in par. Bob had a bad luck bogey..

Some artistic photography on the fourth tee ...

... while we are waiting for fairway to clear.

Bob managed to hit into the foursome in front of us anyway.
Bob is very impatient.

Got the dots figured out while waiting on 3

Zwicker the Greator has 2 skins thanks to a push on 1

Time to restore a little balance with a cohiba and a bloody mary.

At the turn.

That would be my drive, 35 yards further up the fairway.

Bob sinks bogey putt on 7
