Where the THP Tour Van Takes Us!

The final of three Shaft Up events is kicking off and this thread will serve as host for all of the action that the two lucky winners encounter in Chicago. Here is what you know.

They are being flown into Chicago
They are getting fit by Danny Le and myself
They are getting new Ben Hogan Equipment
We are playing the beautiful private facility Olympia Fields

This thread will be going fast and furious with all of the action when it kicks off.

THPers Nerdy and DMoney will be posting everything that happens as it happens with course thoughts, equipment information and of course UST Mamiya shaft fitting.

So jealous of you guys getting to play Olympia Fields! Getting fit by someone like Danny is a real added treat! Then getting new equipment from Hogan is the cherry on the top.

These shaft up events are truly one of a kind. Private golf club that hosts a major, fitting by the guy who actually designs the shafts, all-expense paid travel, throw in some free clubs and free food...money cant buy this!! Making the impossible possible!
