    In a lot of years past, they usually get about 2000 in the early sign up to get in the drawing for prizes. Then before they go up on entry fee, they get the next the next 1000. Then the next 500 + before final.

    They use to do that and the Pro actually would come out get the slow groups back into position, I know from personal experience. This was 17yrs ago. Now the courses have realized they get paid whether they do their jobs or not. It is not the WA staffs fault the rounds are slow, it lies at the courses fault. JMO

    Mike, I never get in a Handicap skin game. Point I was trying to make is that if Im in handicap’s Flight with other 12’s (I’m currently a 18.1 Index) and some guys are making 6 Birds and putting for more, I’m seriously wondering why they are not in a lower Handicap Flight. Played with a guy in my flight early on and from the first tee shot, I knew that I could never come close to him in a money game. He keep asking me why I didnt get into the skins. At the end of the round he had 6 birdies and won a big pot. Friend told me the next day, he was in his flight the year before and same story. to each his own

    Mike, wait till you hit 75 and then you will know what loosing yardage really means. I got new clubs from August thru September and picked us some yardage.. Big thing is that they are lighter. I flushed a 6 iron on Tuesday and hit it about 156 to a hole location that I have not able to get a 4 hybrid to. (same location I use to hit a 6 iron to from 30 yards back). unfortunately, the hole was cut at 136 yards in a different location. BUT it felt ssoooo gooood. Its going to be interesting to see if I can make it 3 days in a row at QSCHOOL, I’m in better shape than i have been in years/. Dropped 55 lbs and walking 2 miles in 31 minutes on treadmill. but walking on CPO on verry hilly course is taking a toll on me.Hopefullyu I got a few years left on me. Take care and hope to see you in August

    I have never been a fan of the skins. I do not like the way they hang around “hawking” it and then taking up time when we should be getting instructions about the competition that day. This is suppose to be a tournament. The WA CATCHES the handicap busters, but how about the people that have inflated handicap to get into a flight just to win some skin money

    Thanks Glenn. Was just mainly wanting the courses early enough to take a look at them in case I get one I have not played. March weather is always iffy.

    Not speaking for the WA, but I think the march date is the last to be eligible for the early bird prizes. The price usually stays that to a date sometimes in May. I’m just trying to give you help you out till WA responds

    Take care of yourself. Once you have a heart issue, you learn why doctors refer to it as “practicing medicine” My Loop Recorder” batteries went out in October, they took it out in December. My local Doctor noticed a frequent “Skip” last week ad Blood Pressure was up. But Cardiology says keep track of BP until my April visit. Wait and see but I feel OK. AM STILL maintaining my 55 pound weight loss and that is the biggest reason I’m doing well. Hopefully I will get good courses for the Qschool. Hopefully I can go 3 days in a row. Hope you get yours handled.

    Rick, I am really worried about the yardage I will lose over this new roll back. By the time 2030 gets here( based On distance I’ve lost already), I will be playing par 4’s from 225 yds, par 5’s from 300 yds par 3’s from 60 yards.
    You coming down for Q School……??

    Ken,thank you for upgrading me on the early bird.
    ALSO- my opening sentence was not as clear as it should have been, one day I will proofread b4 sending. What I was attempting to type was that I thought some of the Golf Courses liked the tee times better. I personally know I like the tee times better.

    I for one am glad they went back to tee times. During the COVID years I got a feeling from some of them that they preferred Tee times. When I first read that I wondered if the pressure was coming down from the courses. Also keep in mind that some of the big groups of courses that have the Premium Courses are able to get their lesser courses in the rotation: ie putting up with the “Cats” for several years. At some point, some of these courses should not be allowed to host when clearly they are not in decent shape. I don’t like the increased price but I don’t mind paying it if I get quality courses. I don’t think it’s a “deal “ as someone said. I was at the CC last year and other than Demo Alley was not real happy with the vendors for golf. I use to drop about $200 / year there but only bought 2 glove’s this past year. Note, the Hirlz 22$ was a piece of ——-. Lasted 1 round. I plan on dropping it at his table if he comes this year. The $33 was a great one. I’m wondering why the early bird special ends earlier…?… this year. What will be the price after that?..

    Rick. Sorry I didn’t get to catch up with you, but did you know that I heard my name called out as being nominated for the bulletin board that you received. Took until the next night and I was looking for Scott and he was standing next to the 2 guys I asked. Didn’t recognize him with the beard. Hopefully next year my stamina will be better and I can play.

    if you have a true index, you will better that differential around 3 times per 20 rounds and the odds of shooting 3shoots under it are less than that. When you post a score on GHINN, it will show you your differential for the round at posting. The trouble starts at everyone’s HOME course for not having a Handicap Committee that truly does their jobs and lets people get away with not posting all their scores. The WA has done a great job of handling the sandbagging the last several years but it is what it is.

    Max 9 ain’t tournament golf. Just like LMR E 5 (ball lost or OB) which is not used. I have had an 8 on par 3 and survived to be in top 10. JMO
