Where my Chicagoland NLU'ers at?

I love how #8 sets up off the tee. Really pleasing to the eye.

As someone who has never been able to cure my slice, Sunset Valley has been a revelation this year. Ironically, I kept myself from shooting my low round of the year there on Sunday night by missing left for the first time all day . . . straight into the pond left on 17. :man_shrugging:

Girlfriend was giving me a hard time about the cart cover that has been sitting in the garage, unused, for two years. Looks like it will be making its debut on Saturday.

I’m breaking out the layers and some high ABV stouts I have sitting in the cabinet for the added warmth.

You all really couldn’t vote for any of the September dates? Don’t you know October around here is an absolute crapshoot with weather?? /sarcasm

Ohhh come on now it’s PERFECT Ryder Cup weather out. Looking forward to picking apart Ravines while pretending to club twirl EVERYTHING

I guess I wondered if we had a stance on carts vs pushcart/carry.
I was going to pushcart (I know its a hike there).

I also can bring a thing or two to fill the “coffee tumblers.”

Are we really complaining about 57 degrees in early October? Y’all really have gone soft since April.

Pretending?!

I’m gonna drip sauce all over while firing a silky 96, full of hat-tips and thumbs-up’s

Just a (not so) quick refresher for everyone on proper etiquette.

Ah yes, the blog post that started it all, for me.

It’s hilarious to go back and read this and realize that, indeed, we (read: me) do these things as jokes on a regular basis now.

Fair point - as a lefty fighting the big right miss, 4 is the only one I can think of that has water/OB right off the tee. It wouldn’t be as fun for my roommate who struggles with going left.

My weather app is expecting 45 degrees around my tee time.

I am going to walk in every putt. It will look cool maybe once if I am lucky.

Warm-ups and the first couple holes will be chilly. Won’t be bad once we get moving. Better than getting boned in the wind last Saturday.

Since you’re my pardsy, those putts are dropping. Sauce will be oozing in our wake as we walk from green to tee.

Can we institute a local rule for this event where if you don’t walk in a made putt it’s an immediate recall?

ALL IN for that

UNLESS you do the “surprised face” reaction a la JT

Lately I have been using the hand wave in the direction my ball was supposed to move on putts. It is accurate since I have never actually misread a green in my life.
