On another post Tiger Woods greatest two wins seems to be a hot topic. I'm wondering what is your best golf experience, rather it be playing somewhere or watching a special tournament somewhere. I have been fortunate and played some great courses, but my all time favorite trip was to pinehurst #2.
Watching my son, when he was about ten, hit the stick on a par 3 and the ball stayed just about an inch from the cup. I wish that it would have gone in, but it really gave him the passion to get better.
Played Torrey Pines from the pro tees. I've played Pebble Beach and I would say Torrey Pines is 10X better than Pebble.
Good to hear.. I have played Pebble and looking to get to Torrey maybe this year.
For my 40th went to pebble and played it 2 weeks before he open. Also played spy glass and spanish bay unreal experience. BUT nothing compared to being on the 1st tee with my dad and my son the 3 of us playing our first round of golf together. Doesn't get any better
when i was 10 years old my Dad and I went to the Memorial Tournament. Jack Nicklaus was playing in the tournament. I asked for his autograph, he told me to follow him as he walked up onto the tee box from the previous hole. He signed my hat gave me a golf ball and took a few pictures as we both stood on the 13th tee box.
Best golf experience ever!
2nd best....being the first Golfer Ever From my High Schools history to make it to the State Golf Tournament in Singles and playing on the Scarlet & Grey Golf Course.
When I quit golfing! My sports nemesis... Could hold my own in most every other sport but I tried to compete w/out practicing and would come off the course wanting to fight. Thank the Lord I don't chase those little white balls anymore...
I am fortunate enough to have a friend who gets me onto Sawgrass stadium course occasionally. My first time playing there, I birdied 16 and then stuck it within 10 feet of the pin on 17. One of the coolest and scariest sights teeing up your ball on 17 and then stepping back to take a look at the green before you hit it.

I pumped about three of them into the water on #17, before finally giving in and going to the drop zone.
Question for you... did you make the 10' birdie putt?
Somewhat of a thread hijack... what's on your golf bucket list? My top two are:
Go watch the Ryder Cup in Britain - with some golf buddies who not only appreciate the game, but also a nice ale in a pub at the end of the day!
A golf trip to Scotland. Need to get the handicap down first though - many of those courses won't let you play unless your handicap is X or lower. So, there's some incentive to improve.
Played Shadow Creek in Las Vegas last summer.
Looking to play Pebble in Sept. 2013 when I go out to the Bay Area for the Cal game.
Fat, drunk, and stupid is no way to go through life, son.

hell no, or he woulda said so!!!
Grandkids...... God's reward for not killing your children!
Unfortunately... my great experience ended there. haha
I got nervous , sally'd it and it rolled back down the hill. 3 putted for a bogey!
Taking my father to Pebble for his 60th. He always gave me guidance, love, support (financial), and the love for the game. We had a great caddie and it was amazing. Paying my father's generosity back with an unreal golf vacation was one of my proudest moments as his son.
