I really try not to judge anyone that I don't personally know, but it sure does seem like Justin Reed and his family are a bunch of pricks.


Yea but what do you think about Patrick Reed? :)

Btw, Tiger is playing out of his mind right now.

I can’t wait to see what he does in 2020.

The knee surgery he had a few months ago has been huge for him.

Yeah, I was never a big Tiger guy, but it sure seems like he had his fall (of his own doing), took his lumps like a man, and has come out better for it.  He seems to have embraced his role as "elder statesman" better than I think he ever could have if he didn't go through that adversity.  Some people screw up and blame others, Tiger screwed up and was accountable and improved himself as a person.  Awesome to see.

Anyone ever been to a golf event? What is better? Post up in one grandstand for the day and watch everyone go by? Or walking the course with a group?

I went to the Quicken Loans tourney at TPc Avenal a few years ago.

I wanted to follow around Tiger. Wasn’t sure I would ever get that chance again.

I can see the argument for both.

I will say that the BMW is going to be mobbed in all likelihood, different than what I saw at that tourney.

It was definitely crowded and everyone was there for Tiger.

My guess is that you would have to be ok with crowds and the heat if you want to walk around.

I've done both and it probably depends on if there's someone you're really interested in. When I lived in Jacksonville, I went the Player's each year and did both. I followed Rickie Fowler one year and you have to HUSTLE if you want to actually see the action for a golfer with a large following. Basically always trying to stay a shot ahead of them and finding good spots to see from.

 

If you're able to find a cool spot, it's a lot more relaxing to post up somewhere and see all of them come through. Par 3s are usually the most interesting for that, or somewhere where you can see multiple shots from. 

 

I've mostly tended to do more of a hybrid of the two though.. maybe follow someone for a few holes and if I get to a position or spot where I have a good vantage point, I might hang out there and see a couple of groups go through. I find that if I'm only following one group, I feel like I'm missing everything else and if I stay at one location too long, I just feel like I need to get up and move.

I assume binoculars is probably a must, especially if you get nice vantage point where you can see say the green from one hole and the tee box of the next? Are tournaments general admission, or if you want to sit in a grandstand is there a ticket for that, like a stadium event, assigned seat? 

 

I think if Tiger plays I will be in that group of people that is exponentially larger than the rest of the course. And will try at times to get a couple holes ahead to get a closer look at some point.

In most cases, I think everything tends to be general admission. There could potentially be some areas that certain passes are required, but most of those (in my experience) were for things like corporate tents. I can't recall having any issues with trying to get into any sections or areas at any point.

 

Most areas are first come, first serve. At Sawgrass, you'd have people hanging out at #17 hours before anyone would be playing there because that's how they could lock in a good spot. Which was cool and I'm sure would be great if you had the interest, but the thought of being at an empty hole for hours wasn't appealing to me.
