    Hi Just to let you know, I played in the BMW Golf Cup International yesterday, as a Team Titleist Invitee, and I have posted a few pictures for you to see. The hardest but one of the most enjoyable days I have had so far playing golf. Playing off the Blue Tee's on a course designed for the straight hitters !!.

    A field of 25 with one person scoring 36. two 32s then down to as low as 19(from a 10 handicapper) 28 and 24 from us. Really hard but enjoyable with the BMW team giving us a brilliant day. Unfortunately neither myself or my college qualified for the next stage, but the experience was fantastic. Thank you to Team Titleist for invite, and good luck to the rest of TT at the next few events.

  11. David,
    Live in the area but have never played at Hillside. Getting on the Captain's Team to play against Hillside (and a couple of the other A-list courses) requires divine intervention. It's a pretty special place.
    Went to Tommy Fleetwood's British Masters there the other week and it's difficult to imagine the place without the trappings of a Tour event. I don't, however, imagine that makes scoring any easier - It looks benign but it surely has teeth. Glad to hear you enjoyed it.

    Special is the correct wording to explain this course. The fairways are so narrow and if you venture off into the rough, it is nearly impossible to get out and score on the hole. The experience and thinking your way round the course without ever playing it before is really hard. If I ever get the opportunity to play again, there are at least 7 holes I would play differently.
    A true test of golf but a pleasure to play and the staff and employees at the course are a credit to their club.
  13. Know what you mean about the rough - At the British Masters, one of the pro's (an Italian, I think) donned his waterproof pants to play out of the rough to the left of the first green... and promptly took them off again once on the green. Seemed a little excessive at the time but on reflection, it was knee-high....
