I know I'm late to the party but another great little course I used to play all the time is Lost Lake, just a little further north, towards Hobe Sound. 6,850 from the tips and some gorgeous golf holes. The course is always in fantastic shape, as long as there has not been a monsoon. If you guys need another option, check this one out...

Two weeks, fellas! Following along with the guys at the TrueTemper event has me fired up and ready to go! I just need the weather to relent so I can get on the practice tee and course.

For those coming to this one, our meet and greet will be between 6 and 7 and is off property, so if you are playing a round, plan accordingly.

Our round is at 10:36 so we should be good. Are we taking the THP Tour Van through Lion Country Safari?

Its not been as humid down here the last couple weeks, so while still hot, its much more enjoyable.

Should be a great event where some guys get their brains melted by so much info from Danny the Great.

Here’s hoping a little rain doesn’t have ATL f’d up as a sprayed roach this evening.

ETA: If it ain’t packed, I can buy it in West Palm Beach.

About to be wheels up and headed to Akron, to turn around for one more early flight tomorrow. Guess I should pack when I get home.

I'm so excited for you guys to play a course (The Champ) that I'm so familiar with. It doesn't get it's reputation for difficulty from it's length. It's difficulty is in how each hole is setup and guarded with water and strategic bunkers. There are so many holes you cannot run the ball up to the green on. Haven't played it in years but the greens were always in great shape and reasonably quick for a public play resort course and stimp was usually around 12.

I think I read somewhere that the Honda Classic (The Champ) is considered by many of the tour players as one of the harder courses they play all year. It's a thinking golfers layout and demands shot making and risk/reward to score well. I never went low on it. I think the best I ever did was 82 from the tips and I actually felt good about that score.

If you appreciate demanding golf hole/course layouts, this is one of those courses. Embrace it! Take it all in... and give it everything you have.

I'm so very much looking forward to this opportunity! I'm really going to try and play smart, but without grinding and just enjoying the amazing company...I don't hit the ball far, but hopefully can limit big mistakes and manage whatever game I wake up with... And if that doesn't work, there's always beer! :p:p
