    If you don't get it, you don't get it. No judgements. The thing is - pastoral setting, almost reverential. Natural beauty at its' peak all around you. Complete and total relaxation, if you embrace it.

    You don't like golf? You don't like the 'mecca' of golf? You don't find interest in tradition dripping from every pore of a locale?

    That's cool.

    Why take the time to insult it, though? Why not just ignore and move 'beyond'?

    I've got one, too. I got a ball marker and shirt when I visited the US Open in '99. I had the luck to play there one year later, and I loaded up. The shirts were no longer $120, they were a much more 'reasonable' $80. I bought a cap, two shirts, a ball marker, a repair tool, and a couple of logo balls.

    I'll say this - I barely managed to break 100 playing from the white tees.

    At least I can say I played the course, and in double digits, LOL!

    I got picked in the lottery for 4 practice round tickets for Wednesday. Got them

    in the mail yesterday. My plans are not working out like I had hoped so I may end up trying to sell them. I really want to go but it's just turning into a big headache to work it all out. If anyone's interested send me an email,

    #1... If on the other hand, you DO appreciate or like that kind of thing, it is unparalleled and you described it well.

    I played Pinehurst #2 once and shot 127.
    I must have snuck in a secret extra 9 by mistake.
