This event has been just insane to say the least (maybe 1 of my friends believes it is actually happening) so for the venue to change, I was thinking we were going to be hitting top golf and a local muni, which knowing JB we still would have a great time.

But to have your back up plan be a course that has hosted a major championship and is set to host the f$*%ing Ryder Cup 6 weeks before they play it there.... well not sure the words for it.

I am a bit speechless, my brother and some friends from home were supposed to play Whistling and the other 3 courses there last year for my 40th and another guys 50th, but due to all the craziness last year we had to cancel.... so getting to go this year and experience it with THP is going to be special.
I can't wait for the Culver's bathroom photos!

The same for me, when I describe it some people think I'm just blowing smoke up their *** until I show them all the magic on THP haha

Sometimes you get a curveball thrown at you and you have to adjust.

In this instance, Olympia Fields was the signup, but in a last minute change, we had to find a replacement. @DannyLe and I went over this for a week or so and came to Whistling Straits as the option.

So congrats to the guys, you are headed to Whistling Straits and we are going to have a blast.
I've played there twice, awesome course!

congrats guys!!!

Crazy to think of Whistling (freakin!) Straits as a “backup” course. I’m jealous of you guys, what a fantastic time you’re going to have!

So I know with Chicago they have deep dish and Chicago dogs as food options, what are the go-to options up in the great state of Wisconsin? Brats and cheese curds?

With the Mizuno Experience now wrapped up, are we officially on deck? For some reason I think there is another experience this weekend but my mind is drawing a blank.
