Starts tomorrow...

Anybody going?

I'm spectating tomorrow and will be marshalling on #5 Friday and Saturday. Stop by and see me if you're there.

Hopefully the weather will cooperate. Crowds will probably be smaller since Tiger isn't coming...

Is there a problem with them?

We're probably heading over about lunch... and probably going to sit on the back today.

The greens are terrible from what they say. 9 players showed up and left because they were in such bad shape. I think I heard names like Ian Poulter, Vijay Singh, etc. took their clubs and went home. They had to tear up and resod a couple greens just two weeks ago because they weren't playable.  It's a shame that they have done such a great job with this tournament for a decade and now they have this black eye so to speak on them.

We just found an article about this... unbelievable.

That course has always been in such good shape, that's a shame.

WTF happened?

In other news, there's a lot of talk about moving the tourney to Eagle Point in Wilmington in 2017. You can't imagine how much we will love that.

They are switching from bent to Bermuda. The greens keeper they hired is a Bermuda expert but the greens are still bent. At least that's the rumor I heard.

They were talking about it on 610 this morning and Jim Celania knows one of the executives there and from what I gathered was that they went to Bermuda and the cold March that we had didn't allow the Bermuda to take because it needs heat. I may have misunderstood that but that's how I took it.

 

He was also saying that Augusta has Bermuda and it looked great this early in the year but that is because they put their greens into "a coma" and no one plays on the course in the summer which I have never heard before.  

 

The consensus is that they will be moving this tournament to the summer to now that the greens will be Bermuda.

That is the year that the PGA Championship will be in Charlotte right?

    • Is this dude a real life person or an alt of @GOOGLE JIM BOB COOTER that is a living joke exemplifying the white culture thread? 
    • lol no one takes him seriously. He gets a courage award for bringing his hand-me-down  dad-politics into ttb while still asking to himself, "what does ttb mean again?"
    • I'm extremely pumped by this addition. It has to be the biggest addition since the team came back to Charlotte. I was too young to follow the original talented Hornets (Im sad), so I'm not going back that far. People and fans can say what they want about D12, but the man still have a lot left in his tank. And, Im tired of hearing how he doesnt fit in today's game anymore. There are only a handfull of big men today that I can really say, can shoot the ball: Davis, Towns, Embiid, Cousins and Aldridge.  Howard can still dominate! That's all that matters. The only neg I will give Howard is that I do see a lack of desire/effort to play at times. But, I believe MJ can help motivate him back to being a dominant big man again for next two years here.  Dwight Howard averaged a double-double last season: 13.5 ppg, 12.7 rpg, 1.2 bpg, and 1.4 apg.  D12 had "53", I said FIFTY-THREE double doubles last season. He had six games where he averaged 20 rebounds or more.  Guess who was the last Bobcats/Hornets era to even come close to that number.....Emeka Okafor in 2004 as a rookie with 47 double doubles (35.6 MPG). Then Big Al had 42 in 2013 (35.0 MPG). Howard did that while averaging 29.7 min per game. If you count out his 2014 season where he only played in 41 games, last season was the LEAST amount of minutes played per game in Howard's career.  Only three guys (Towns, Whiteside and Gobert) averaged more double doubles than Howard in 2016. And only four other guys ( Whiteside, Drummond, DJordan and Gobert) averaged more RPG than Howard last season. Other than Towns, none of those guys mentioned above can really shoot the ball any better than Howard. But, teams still want them on their teams for big contracts.    D12 will be a beast this upcoming season!
