Apologies for the late start to the thread boys. Busy week.
Week 24 we are off to Daggertooth by @figz. It was his entry into the rookie design contest and a standout course from that competition in my opinion. Very fun course that is similar to many northern michigan courses you might be familiar with.
--- From the designer: Welcome to DaggerTooth, my 4th official course and entry into the Rookie Design Contest! With main inspiration from Greywalls, DaggerTooth is located in the upper Northwest part of Michigan. At just over 7,200yrds from the tips, DaggerTooth offers wide undulated fairways, plenty off subtle strategy, a mix of open and tight tee shots, and not many flat lies to spare.
You wont find much flash outside of the course as I based the environment off something you would find in the middle of the forests in Northwest Michigan with a small simple clubhouse that was formed before the course was even designed. Like Mike DeVries says in "Tourist Sauce (Michigan): Episode 5, "Kingsley Club" - "Most guys don't care, they want to have a burger and a beer and a good time and want to play golf". ---
Any man who watches and quotes No Laying Up's Tourist Sauce is alright in my book. Good luck everyone!
Well if ever there was a week I'd actually be happy to miss the cut it's this week. Didn't really enjoy any of my two rounds. No issues with the course itself, layout etc, but I was hampered by lag on most shots. It was less of a problem with shots from tee to green but it made putting feel like I'd just started playing. Constantly hitting it too hard due to the lag and consequently missing putts I'd normally make with my eyes closed.
Managed to grind out -8 and -9 so I'll probably miss.
After leaving me greenkeepers hut to play rd1, i thought to myself, that i really need to put a few home comforts in here if im going to spend alot of time here , but after rd1 I hastely returned for a change of underwear -12 and to be fair i know i left 2 more out there.
Rd2 i played well again, but just left more out there, probably 4 i would say, -8 finish.
-20 thru 36H's, little smile on my face (hopefully making a cut) as i close the hut door behind me, now how can I improve my comfort?
I didn't have that happen on this course but it has happened to me once before. Can't remember the course now but I hit drives into the fairway and it actually stopped like it was rough, and same thing with hitting out of it.

Doyley: We're aware WGR points didn't get handed out last week - not intentional and we're fairly confident we can retro fix that - will let you know if/when that is done.

Doyley: should return to the normal schedule you set up for the next one. Apologies for the slight error.

Doyley: Just an FYI - for those that chose the recurring donation option - we had a slight issue with the recurring portion of it that is now fixed. It's likely if you had a previous recurring donation skipped (the first one always worked) it was sent in today

Doyley: We'll obviously be holding off on any next season talk until after the info is out on 22nd - we can make a plan of attack after we find out if it's a release day or a release date (in the future)

theclv24: I figured it might be interesting to a few folks here, and I Ihaven't gotten huge turnout on the raffles so a $10 gives you a decent chance to win.
