I am leaving the house Friday and driving to Savannah to meet my buddy who is driving up from Miami. My buddy and I will drive to MB on Saturday, register and then we are headed to the Love Course at Barefoot, Sunday the Dye course at Barefoot.
Haven’t firmed up plans for Friday after but either Caledonia or Wild Wing Avocet.
We always try to play a full 7 day schedule
Will probably only spend any time at the 19th hole Monday to meet Bob Newman for a drink, but will head to Broadway on the Beach Sunday afternoon.

Leaving Houston on Southwest Thursday afternoon 22nd flying into Charleston. Pick up rent car and drive up to MB. Check in hotel-Doubletree.
Have not booked courses yet but the plan is to play 2 courses on Friday, 2 courses on Saturday, 1 course on Sunday.
Will do check-in for WA either Saturday afternoon or Sunday AM.
Planning on going to Broadway at the Beach Sunday afternoon.
Then 4 days or tournament golf.
Hope to make the Finals but if not will be playing 2 courses on Friday.
Play 1 more round Saturday 31st, then turn in rent car in MB and fly out of MB on American back to Houston.
As far as the Convention Center is concerned…plan on going every night. Lots of friends I have met in my 31 years of playing in the WA I only get to see here.
So, 9 days of golf hopefully playing 12 rounds. Fun with the gang from Houston and the tournament leagues I play in, seeing my friends from the WA and enjoying my 3rd week of retirement. There will be some Crown and Scotch consumed during these 9 days for sure.

Tommy, you are in for a big disappointment if you are only coming on Monday to have a drink with me. Haha. I’m looking forward to that also as I think you and I can have fun discussing various points of interest on the rules
I will be getting in on Friday. Usually play a course on my WA schedule. Meeting up with my 9 year old niece to celebrate her birthday. Have not decided if I will play Saturday or Sunday yet. The 4 days of WA will play havoc with my body and I do not want to leave MB in pain. Will definitely spend some time on a driving range and hopefully will not have to go back for a lesson from a guy I have gone to in the area. Looking forward to getting there.August 3, 2019 at 3:23 pm #46449Ryan SParticipant
Coming from the west side of Canada and off to Disneyworld the week before. Head from Orlando to Myrtle the Friday before and get the hotel, car and wait for rest of the crew to arrive from Canada.
Once they arrive meet up with all my World Am buddies for a good time at TopGolf. Drinks will be served however more importantly, trash talk and pairings will begin for the 3rd annual Myrtle Beach International Cup.
Saturday morning begins the battle for the cup! 27 holes of modified Ryder cup style matches. 9 holes best ball, 9 holes alternate shot (everyone tees off) and 9 hole scramble. All takes place @ Arrowwood, even snagged a co-sponsor in Travis Mathew for our team outfits.
Sunday is a sleep in day after the drunkenness that was the MB International Cup. Will end up grabbing a tee time at whatever course the majority of our crew has in the tourney. After that head for some drinks most likely at Broadway.
Now it’s tourney time or should I say skins time! Never do well in this tournament so pin hunting everything.August 6, 2019 at 12:52 pm #46512Bobby ThomasParticipant
Driving up from Tampa bright and early Saturday morning with the Wife and pup dog to meet my Dad and oldest Son to play a round at World Tour that afternoon. Waiting on course assignments to determine where the 3 of us play on Sunday. Hitting Broadway for the welcome party Sunday night and then a good nights sleep before I crap out on Monday with a triple digit score on day 1 only to enjoy the 19th hole each night with my family and continue talking about that 1 hole for the day that gives us hope going into the next day. Though, my son I am sure will bragging about how well he played…I just enjoy getting to the World Am with 3 generations and playing golf!!! Hit ’em straight and hope they roll true!!! Play well ALL!!!August 6, 2019 at 2:53 pm #46513Kevin WilsonParticipant
We are flying into Charleston on Saturday, then drive up to Myrtle. We will relax on Saturday and then Sunday I will be playing in the touring groups tournament at Indian Wells. We do not usually get done in time to make it back to the welcome party but we will see how the day goes. In the mean time need to correct a lot of things in my swing to keep from losing 90 golf balls! Good luck to all.August 7, 2019 at 8:57 pm #46526james mcdanielParticipant
I an’t believe anyone would go to the 19th hole just to have a drink with Bob….We don’t drink but after spending time with Bob , we do….
luv ya buddyAugust 7, 2019 at 9:02 pm #46527Tommy BriggsBlocked
James did you ever consider drinking might be the best way to spend social time with Bob?
Just kidding, I am looking forward to it.August 7, 2019 at 9:13 pm #46528Bob NewmanParticipant
Jim, keep in mind Tommy is coming one night, you have to put up with me all 4 and keep in mind, I know where you are staying. Looking forward to seeing y’all but you probably will not recognize me, I’m down 35 lbs from last year.

We fly into Charleston the 22nd, get rental car, go to dinner at Bubba’s at the Market downtown. Will spent the night in Charleston and drive up to MB the next morning. Friday is a rest day. Saturday, we drive around, check in for tournament gear, and that night going to a Cirque show. Sunday, playing in one of the skins games and off the the BAB party. Monday is the first round and Monday night is 19th Hole. Hope to see some friends, but no one wants to be our friends. Nine years and have met a couple of guys at least I recognize from year to year.
I’m bringing the wife, and she’s damn good looking! So how many of you want to meet us now? LOLAugust 8, 2019 at 4:08 pm #46541Bill HambrickParticipant
Will drive down and check in to room on Wed the 21st spend day with wife on Thur. Maybe hit a bucket of balls, but probably not play a round. Skins game at Heathland on Fri., the skins at Sea Trail Jones Course on Sat, Skins Game at The Norman Course on Sun.. Then HOPEFULLY The Dye Course on Fri. For Championship.! If not 1 last round at Possum Trot.
