Hey Tom Doughan! Do you remember me? I used to be a member in Winthrop a few years back. I saw your name up here last year, but didn’t know how to reach you. Small world man!
This will be my 5th year in a row. I’ve had two rain out days in that time. I was lucky to win in flight 8 last year. My game peaked at the right time. This year I’m coming in as a 7.0 hncp. Going to be very tough to make it to the fabulous Pete Dye track.
I’m hoping to make this a lifetime event. This has been our “family” trip before school starts the last 4 years. Kids love the beach. The wife is getting sick of watching the kids at the beach all day while I golf lol!August 16, 2016 at 8:33 pm #35801Tom McCainParticipant
12 years straight for me, and would have been in since day one if I had known about it. Made some good friends and shot my best score in my life at Tigers Eye (80) in 2007. Enojy running the skins games and meeting newer players.August 17, 2016 at 5:59 am #35804Tom DoughanParticipant
Hey there, Josh. Yes I do remember you…and our competitions against each other over at Winthrop in its league and tournaments. Haven’t even seen the course since 2012 so I only get the gossip on how things are run now.
Congrats on your finish last year. I was rooting for you to put your name on the big trophy. I’m on the every other year plan regarding getting time off approved at work for this trip so I’m looking forward to this year’s. I’ll be leaving for M.B this Monday. Coming down with a 6.4 so I may have a tough time finishing above the fold. I won’t give my number out over an open Board but shoot me an email at email@example.com and we can exchange contact info. Maybe we can meet up at the CC and swap crying fits over our play that day.August 17, 2016 at 6:19 am #35805Daniel RousseauParticipant

3 rd year for me…I use to play in the Surf Club 2 man for years thought about moving up to the world am way before I did but always liked playing at the surf club such a great golf course and Bill the pro there always ran a first class tournament….But after a few years of price increases and cutting down on what you won they just priced me right out of that tournament and now its welcome to the Myrtle Beach World AM… 🙂

First time was in 1993, have missed 6 or 7 times since, so this year is either 17 or 18 times I have played.August 20, 2016 at 5:38 pm #36073John MudrockParticipant
What is the total count of entrants up to this year?August 20, 2016 at 7:00 pm #36083Mike LawsonParticipant
My 11th year. Came in dead last on my first but have been coming back anyway. Always a good time and great company. Only bad thing is, like Jim McDaniels said, the week seems done faster than you can unpack your suitcase.August 21, 2016 at 12:43 pm #36121Steve HarschParticipant
Began in year 10 (ugliest golf shirt ever!). Played every year since then.August 21, 2016 at 8:24 pm #36142Glenn FosterParticipant
I’ve missed 2 years since 1995. Missed 1998 & 2009, so 19 years & counting.August 22, 2016 at 9:59 am #36156Tom DoughanParticipant
Myrtle Beach…here I come! #23 starts today.August 22, 2016 at 11:29 am #36160James BushnellParticipant
This is my 8th year….August 23, 2016 at 3:38 am #36220Chris HattingsParticipant
This will be my 13th year. Every year since 2003 except 2009. That year I was working in Barrow, Alaska (northern most point in the US) and could not play any golf.August 26, 2016 at 11:41 pm #36421Glenn FosterParticipant
You’re right Sir. The prize pool was awesome then. Free car(s), condo, free round trip tickets for holes in ones and real competition from motels & hotels for our stays the next year. The Budweiser Girls roaming the floor for pictures… but the No Tables & eating off of anything flat( mostly trash cans) I do not miss. Sitting around regaling each other of the tales of the day.
My first hole I took a 12 on a par 5 @ Wild Wing- Hummingbird. Hit 2 balls off of first tee into some ungodly pampas grass growing in a bunker. Found second ball hacked out… all after a 4+ hr. delay because of heavy rain the night before on top of that. Ahh the good ole days.
