    Ha Ha. Well I am ready to get shelled again. I have posted 10 $1, 10 $2 and 5 $5 dollar H2H in the league forum for my inaugural shot at glory. If they fill up I will break open my piggy bank and post more.

    Good luck this week! My final tally from last week was 2-21 with a 3/6. My worst week of golf since I started playing.

    Make sure you guys spend that extra dollar or two wisely this week!

    for the next 2 weeks (Rocket Mortgage and 3M) I would like to do a side contest.
    20 MME for $20

    the contest is to take 20 LU’s from ANY 20 max MME
    top 10 LU’s each score cumulative points. The most points wins.

    since we got 4 players who want to play again this week. I recommend that 1) you communicate to me that you want to play. 2) confirm with entry fee by paypal after I send you a PM with address. 3) indicate the DK contest you will enter the MME.

    payout – If 5 and under entries Winner takes all. 6-9 entries 75% to winner 25% to second. more than 10 entries 60% to winner, 25% to second and 15% to third.

    In, gonna do the $5 Drive the Green again.

    how did Detroit get to be a place either Kiss(from Rockford IL) or Nugent(Arlington Heights IL St.Viators grad) came from.

    and then I went golfing

    Has anyone noticed whether Mayo’s favorite plays are over-used in the Pat Mayo contest (and therefore best avoided)? It would make sense, but then I again I always enter that one three times and never use his picks, on purpose.

    I just realized I am going to this event, and how crappy the field is… Was hoping we would get more top 25 guys as the new PGA rule for golfers having to play a new course every so many years…

    I mean point taken but it could be a lot worse! Might be fun to follow some of the young guns and future of the PGA guys though.

    You should try coming to the #Nelson with me every year. Talk about a weak field event.

    At least DJ is showing up for this one.

    Just so I didn’t forget my “Cup” lineup for Yahoo I built one real quick there. You can get a hell of a “stars and scrubs” lineup over there. More like “stars and young guns” though. Duplicate city it seems…

    So now the union for the 7 course workers are threatening to strike if a new contract doesn’t happen by Thursday???

    I just looked up the previous field, and you are right!, My apologies! DJ, Rickie, and I guess Mats. I was hoping for Tiger, JT, or Cantlay.

    Nuge was born in Redford, Michigan and has been called the Motor City Madman for 40+ yrs

    KISS is not from Detroit, they are from NYC – their only well-known connections to Detroit are the song Detroit Rock City and much of the music on their breakthrough live album Kiss Alive was recorded at Cobo Hall in Detroit. I don’t think anyone said on here they were from Detroit.

    Seven? It’s gotta take more than seven guys to get the course ready right? I mean my local course has at least double that on the course every morning to get the course prepped.

    Seems like they could find seven other guys to fill these spots.

    Tiger only plays 6-8 events a year nowadays and I don’t think he cares about any new PGA tour rule about adding new events as he doesn’t even need a card to play majors only. He also wouldn’t ever really need a card to play the rest of his career since any event would gladly give him a sponsor exemption if he want to play. At this stage in his career I don’t see him every playing an event at a course he hasn’t played before unless it is a major of course.

    If they walk, fire them ! I’m sure one of the most prestigious clubs in Detroit can find 7 semi-skilled workers to replace them.

    Sorry to the blue collar guys on the forum, but I personally hate unions and have had continual issues trying to reason with them – they were definitely needed many years ago as companies took advantage of their employees with work hours, unsafe conditions and pay but the scale has flipped almost 180* and now they have made it so employees barely have to work and can take advantage of companies with excess leave provisions for everything.

    There are 40 temp workers also that are not eligible for union representation.

    Odds are since it is a private club the team is maxed out in season with the temps and reduced down to the 7 full time employees during the off season.

    The club I caddied for on Long Island during HS and college did the same thing since after October there was minimal play during the winter months. Some of the caddies would loop in the morning then work with the course maintenance team in the afternoon instead of grabbing a second loop.
