I'm just stunned he didn't built it on/near/adjacent to Native American land so he could also include a personal private casino.

I’m sure the level of gambling taking place their is on the scale of Vegas

That’s me!

Nice! I’m planning a big 2024 trip to include Sedge.

I did just get an invite to join a group on 7/30, but we will see. After the Chicago Finance Bro incident over the summer, I do not want to get on the Keiser’s bad side and show up as a non-resort guest.

Awesome on Grove XXIII. 35 MPH carts and food/bev drones has to be an experience. There’s a podcast out there that detailed how the clubhouse was built too low due to a grade bust and Bobby Weed has to redesign a lot of the course to figure out drainage.

Retire

Unfortunately it is not me hoping for the Grove invite, but hoping my buddy lands the invite. I love everything I have heard about it and I am a long time Jordan groupie which adds to the mystique.

I can’t wait to get out to Bandon.  Tentatively on the agenda in ‘24

One of the guys on the trip (Nova grad, my enemy) lived in Portland for 5 years and swears this is the best time to go. We saved major bucks by going March/April rather than peak summer

I’m still a little nervous it’ll be in the 40s with rain and wind but that’s the Midwesterner in me

I’ve had multiple people tell me early spring, too.

Anyone do club fittings in the Milwaukee area have any recommendations for fitting services?

Morikawa with a collapse at the Sentry. Kapalua is not a course you expect to see someone cough up a big lead.

+3 on 14-16 at Kapalua is Mickelson-esque on a Sunday at the US Open.  Helps Team Europe’s Ryder Cup cause

Good for Rahm.   Rough for Morikawa.

I’ve heard good things about Jeff Kaiser out of Madison, but haven’t heard much in the Milwaukee area. I’ll reach out to a couple guys.

Morikawa 9 shots up with 17 to play, loses by 2 or 3 to Rahm. Epic collapse.

LIV golf is paying the CW to show their tournaments.     That deal was not done in a Flash.    And it is hardly showcasing the Legends of Tomorrow.

Golfweek's Eamon Lynch's column on the LIV/CW deal:

https://golfweek.usatoday.com/2023/01/20/eamon-lynch-liv-golf-tv-contract-cw-network-desperation/?env=

Given his talent for recasting excruciating humiliations as bold victories, it’s surprising that Greg Norman doesn’t present himself annually at the gate of Augusta National wearing a green jacket and insisting that what happened in 1996 — or ’86, ’87, ’89 and ’99 — was actually a triumph worthy of a place setting at the Champions Dinner.

“A momentous day for LIV Golf,” is how Norman described his league’s just-announced broadcast deal with The CW, the nation’s 25th most-watched network, or 29th if you’re chasing the 18-49 demographic who might be drawn to “golf, but louder.” (To be fair, the CW’s average viewer is 58, so they watch every show louder).

Alert to an opportunity to impress his boss, LIV’s chief media officer, Will Staeger, conjured a version of events that would have even George Santos calling for narrative restraint.

“Following a competitive bidding window with multiple U.S. networks and streaming platforms, the sports story of 2022 has just moved into pole position for the top story of 2023,” he wrote in a social media post.

Staeger’s comment raises two questions for those among us predisposed to cynicism: did autocorrect change “begging” to “bidding,” and how does a competitive process among multiple parties result in giving away the product for free to the worst-case option? ...

Here is another analysis on this media contract. Seems like a deal that helps both CW and LIV. Like a couple of homely people at bar closing time....
