      Just wanted to give a shout out to everyone who made the trip down to Whistler's this weekend. I had a blast floating the river with you all. The weather could not have been better!!! I'm already looking forward to next years Umpqua Valley Championships. They are sure to be even bigger and better. Big shout out to Dion The Whip Arlyn for slamming an Ace on Hole #9, Getting a sick Birdie from Tee 16 to Hole 17 and putting an exclamation point on the weekend with a Birdie finish on Hole 18. Very Nice Dion, even though you throw for the dark side..... Thanks for making this a great experience as a tournament director. Peace

        I had a great time this weekend. Thanks Andrew for putting this series on. I'm exhausted, even having had a caddy all weekend. A special thanks to my nephew for caddying. And for those who don't know, Andrew is a sick and twisted individual. You should have seen the pin positions he us playing. I didn't know some of the new positions existed. They are tough but fun! Lots of fun camping with everyone and looking forward to next year.

            Thanks everyone! What a great weekend, Drew - thanks for putting on this killer event. Hope to see more folks at the next one! For anyone who is keeping track, that putt on #17 might be the best putt of my life to date.

                      Why would this putt be the best of your life to date? It looks like a 60-70 foot putt right? Just curious... and cool picture by far...

                        Ok, to put this into perspective.

                        The hole they were playing was from 16s teepad to basket #17. Going in to this hole Nate was leading Dion by three strokes. Nate had a great drive, and Dion uncorked a HUGE hyzer to land about 40-50 from the basket. Nate's upshot put him at the bottom of the hill past the basket. Dion knew that assuming Nate was going to par the hole he HAD to make this putt to get within 2 stokes of Nate with one hole to go. Despite the drop-off behind the basket Dion ran the putt and nailed it dead center. Nate made his upshot but it kicked a little away from the basket leaving Nate with an awkward uphill 25' putt. Nate came up a little short on the putt and when it dropped, it stood up and rolled all the way back down the drop-off. When all was said and done Dion carded a two and Nate carded a six, leaving Dion ahead by a single stroke. Dion went on the birdie 18 and win it by 2 strokes. It was most certainly terrible luck for Nate to have that putt roll away like that, but Dion hit that putt when it mattered the most.

                          I was gonna say, "What a crappy drive!". Thanks for putting that into perspective. Clutch, Dion. Nice work.

                            Well... we picked a fine time to leave... Dion has to go and do something like that and we missed it.

                            Great finish, Dion. Solid play all weekend.

                            And yes... this tournament was a blast. The float and the golf were amazing and I cannot wait to get back to Whistler's soon.
                            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

                              Nate had a bad drive i believe, I don't think he made it over the road.

                                Ahhhh now that makes sense, adding the sexton part of the story... I was thinking, awesome birdie from 16 tee pad but surely Dion has made some longer putts than that... ahhh with the title on the line and making up 4 strokes in a single hole... now that's something...

                                Note to Sam... most people tend to wait until the tournament is "finished" before leaving so they know who won and all of that hot stuff...
