    Hey Mike, thanks for getting out the email with the link to all the details for this year's TTI at Kohler. Should be another great event. Look forward to seeing everyone there. Probably will get to the resort by mid-morning so anyone interested in playing The Irish course that afternoon, I am thinking about doing it.

    Another Maryland'er excited and ready to see everybody. It's been more than a few years since I've played those courses, hope I'm up to the challenge. But the real treat will be spending time with Mike and the rest of the Titleist Staff and TT members!

    I think I get in MKE around 11:30 or 12:00 and will be renting a car. Anyone who gets in around the same time and needing a ride give me a shout.

    Yep, it was neat having Michael Breed at Kiawah Island last year and Bob Vokey at the spring short game event this year too. Should be a great couple of days. See you there.

    Yep, looking forward to seeing you, Austin, and some of the other guys again in a few weeks. Also excited about adding the Kohler courses to my "played" bucket list. Thirdly, I can't wait to get my "butter burger and cheese curds" fix at a local Culver's. Can't seem to get a Culver's or Whataburger west of Phoenix.

    There is a Culver's just up the road a few miles from Whistling Straits in Sheboygan. As for me, I am more looking forward to a Jigger Ale while on property.

  16. Ha, I don't think a day has gone by without thinking of a Jigger Ale since finding out I was Kohler bound.

    I try to get my fill every time I am at Kohler, too hard to pass up. Looking forward to the event and we will have to enjoy a Jigger together.

    And I discovered the local "Spotted Cow" while at Sand Valley. Happy to say I had Jigger Ale in the Jigger Inn back in 2016. Will get another chance in October so this trip will literally give me a taste of things to come.
  22. Jigger Ale is like lighter, more refreshing Guinness (which I also enjoy). I highly suggest dropping by the Horse and Plow at the American Club. Jigger and Spotted Cow on tap and just a really cool Wisconsin tavern vibe.

    I now know where I will be setting up shop in my down time, Allan. I have a feeling Tyler and Ron T will be right next to me. Can't wait!

    Mind if I pull up a bar stool as well? I love Guinness, so Jigger Ale sounds really good.

    Question for everyone. Is anybody staying at the resort on Friday night?

    My flight is Saturday Mid Morning and I figured if anyone will be around Friday night to hang out with i'd stay there.

    But if everyone is leaving Friday, i might just drive down to Milwaukeee and stay near the airport.

    An extra hour of sleep on Saturday would never hurt. Ha

    Headed home Robert. Already had a trip planned and booked for Maui that leaves Saturday night or I would consider staying. Our 40th wedding anniversary so I better not miss it.

    Congrats Dale! The reason you are celebrating a 40th anniversary is you've been smart in making those decisions all these years!

  29. I'll be around until Saturday morning. I'll be spending the afternoon prepping shipments back to HQs but you'll definitely find me at the Horse & Plow for dinner.

    Sounds good, and if you need an extra hand or two packing everything up, just let me know. I'v got no plans other than maybe chilling with a cold beverage at some point!
  31. Very kind offer but I'll be good to go on help. If I were you, I'd sneak over the The Bull for an afternoon 9 or 18. I've never played it but heard it's a crazy good value.

    Another option would be to head towards Milwaukee and play Brown Deer Golf Course. It is a muni but was the site of the Greater Milwaukee Open until the final year in 2009. Downtown and third Ward have lots of good restaurants and there are plenty of hotels with easy access to the airport. Tiger made his professional debut at this course.

    There is a lot of good golf to be had in the area. The Bog is another one to look at if you plan on heading back towards Milwaukee. Personally, I do not care for the Bull and the normal rate ($150) isn't much less than the Meadow Valley course at Blackwolf, which is a much better course in my opinion.

    Getting excited, just two weeks away now. I just checked the long-range weather forecast (hoping not to jinx us but) looks like i have to revise my packing list and add more shorts and less cool weather stuff. No complaining at all. See you guys/gals soon!

    Yes, I'm hoping for some nice "moderate" midwestern weather, maybe temps in the mid 70's with a nice little breeze off the lake!! But will make the best of whatever mother nature brings, as the event promises to be memorable in any kind of weather.

    It's getting close! In just 8 days it'll be wheels up to WI.

    FYI, I get in at 12:15 on Wed and will have a SUV rental, so if anyone getting in around the same time needs a ride up to WS let me know, I'll have plenty of room.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone.

    Overnighter from San Diego to Chicago should have me into Kohler mid-morning. If early check-in is available, probably a nap. If not, will probably hit the practice area and putting green. Allan/Mike, anything we need to know that's not on the link? I see the pairings are still TBD. Doesn't really matter to me. I'll play with anyone, at anytime. Just excited to gather up with the group again. See you soon.
  38. Working on them as I type. I'll share them along with a final update by the end of this week.

    Were you able to post the pairings? I checked the site TTI site and it still shows TBD. Am I looking in the wrong place? Safe travels and see you on Wednesday.

    Dale, you will be logging some air miles in a short time, with this trip and your turn around to home to refuel before heading to Hawaii. That's some itinerary.

    With me getting up there around 2:00 or so, I'll probably do the same maybe hit the range or short game area, before getting ready for the welcome reception.

    Like you, i'll look forward to pairing up with anyone, I've yet to meet anyone at a TT event who wasn't great to play with.

    Yep, then off to London/Scotland in October. It might sound like a lot but the last 5 years in San Diego have really reduced my business travel. Back in Texas I became an American Airlines "Million Miler" all domestic flights in about a 10 year stretch. See you out there. I'll be the guy wearing the Titleist hat. :)

    Ha. That'll narrow it down a bit

    Wow, another great trip lines up.
  43. I know this is extremely late. Is this event filled up?
    I had rotator cuff surgery, didn’t think I’d be able to play. However, I have healed up quicker than expected. Played the last 2 days with no pain.
    Would like to attend if still available
  44. Mike, is this event full?
    Came back earlier than I thought, from shoulder surgery

    Well, I was just surfing the internet for pictures from Whistling Straits. Just put an extra dozen golf balls into the suitcase. Oh, and I'm very worried about PETA and my golf shots around those poor sheep. To quote our friend the golf instructor... "Let's do this!"
  48. We had some last minute cancellations so had to make some adjustments. Should have them posted by tonight and will send an email to the wider group once they're locked in.

    Sorry to hear some had to cancel, I had to cancel out of the Pinehurst Short Game Event, so I know things like that happen and how it feels.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow evening!.

    Not to fret. We had some late minute additions as well. Pairings are good to go but need to work with Mike D. to get them hosted tomorrow. Email will follow shortly after. Sorry for the delay everyone!
