You've never thrown a spike-hyzer in the snow, have you Celeste?
ďI believe I can hit 18 greens, hit every fairway, you know ó Vision 54, which means you birdie every hole, thatís in the back of my mind. I want to putt better, chip better. That day when I hit 18 greens and one putt, Iíll know Iím a complete golfer. Will that ever happen? Iím not sure, but itís possible. The 54 vision is always in the back of my mind.Ē ~Annika SŲrenstam
Awesome! Love mountain golf and snow makes it better.
I have thrown a spike hyzer in the snow around a blind corner. Many years ago when Pat Farrell through the first tournament up at Willamette Pass. It was blizzard conditions in May. I got that Proline/Champion Beast back about 4 years later. Someone from Bend found it.
I am just going to go ahead and say it. I have talked to alot of different players about this event and I am simply sharing the thoughts I have heard:
1) Many players do not play mountain courses enough to put their PDGA ratings on the line for this event.
2) Very few players will get a chance to play the tournament layout in advance.
3) Many of us are confused as to why the Sisters course is not being used in this event. It was a blast to play last year and clearly a huge amount of effort was expended to get the back portion ready for play. I,personally, was really looking forward to playing that couse in tournament play again this year.
Magilla, I know you are going to feel slighted by this, and I know you probably think I am Jubbing, but I am not. Again, I appreciate all you do for the game and how terrific your events are. I am not at all taking potshots a your work. I just wanted you to hear what many players are thinking and hopefully you take it as feedback and not criticism.
