I have read that there is a “car Pool” table at the registration desk. I was wondering if this board was a better place to get things started? I would imagine that after the 22nd might be a better time, but I figured I’d get a start now. ThoughtsJuly 26, 2016 at 10:08 pm #35268david tianoParticipant
Good thought as this board gets real quiet when everyone leaves home and gets to Myrtle.
Arrange some contacts now, then after the course assignments come out you will know who is in your flight.
What is your age and index?July 27, 2016 at 5:44 am #35270Jon CraigParticipant

This is my first year as well and a buddy and I are flying down and renting a car but it’s in his name and it’s possible we might be in a different flight. I’m currently a 6.2 but it’s trending to a 5.7. His low index is a 6.1, anyone know if it’s a possibility still that we will be in the same flight? I’m staying at the convention center and would like to hook up with someone for a ride if we aren’t in the same flight.July 27, 2016 at 11:04 am #35283Ken DelaneyParticipant
Bill, there is VERY good chance that you will still be in the same flight. Being that close (even if you are trending at 5.7), you might as well “request” to play together. Being only a difference of .4, you won’t even notice the strokes. This will ensure that you are riding together every day.
The only problem will be that “slight” chance of the flights being separated right around 5.8-6.0. Worst case scenario is if your 5.7 is at the top of your flight (i.e. 4.6-5.7 index) and that flight happens to be Flight #4. At 6.1 your buddy would end up in Flight #5 (which would be a different rotation altogether)
As i mentioned, it’s very likely that your indexes will be in the same flight (or even at the same courses for that matter) but not guaranteed. But by requesting to “play together” it will eliminate all those small outside chances.July 27, 2016 at 11:15 am #35284david tianoParticipant
Keep an eye on this thread on a ride but when the courses come out (usually a week before Monday 8/22 latest) everyone will light up this board about course assignments and skins in the fights. Just look for someone posting about your flight. Good luck, have fun.
