    Live golf baby!

    Players wearing shorts, carrying their own clubs, and using range finders. Win, win, and a win.

    Loved it but tbh Seminole was built up in my head from everything I’ve read and heard to be this mythical playground golf Mecca. I was underwhelmed by the course, it looked like a typical Florida golf course to me. Maybe I’m missing something.

    It looked like shit to me.

    Side note: it's amazing how much they rely on caddies to read greens. :p

    The PGA Tour needs to allow range finders/GPS and get rid of the yardage books and green books.

    *LIVE* golf

    It was only one foursome and about 30 other people following them. One guy to pull the pins, one to rake the bunkers, cameramen, microphone guys, etc. No gallery. Course completely shutdown.

    There wasn't anything wrong with that course. Was it at the level of a course at standard PGA event? No, but it was nowhere near the level of a muni.

    LIVE Golf?!?!?! WTF? Did they wear masks, keep 6' apart, use hand sanitizer every 5 minutes, spray for murder bees, carry 4 leaf clovers or rabbit's feet, and sacrifice a virgin?

    Oh I would agree that it wasn’t muni level. My point was that Seminole had been built up in books and articles as a sort of “golf Mecca” where some of the all time greats have played-Hogan comes to mind. Maybe the fact that it has never been on TV made it so mysterious. But once I saw it, i still say it looked like a typical Florida golf course. In my mind-and maybe it’s just me-I conjured up images of an Augusta like course. It looked more like Doral. Nice but not mythical.

    It's always tough to rate a course by seeing it on the TV. St Andrews Old course looks like agricultural land. It's very different seeing it up close. Lots of subtle nuances. I'm guessing if lots of the legends rate it, it has something special, and its also in the millionaires' playground.
