WILD RIDE UPDATE

If you didn’t read the first version of the Wild Ride, do that first. This is only to fill in the blanks as I was ripping through that post last night.

They kind people of Amateurgolf.com featured my win in the Moot Thomas

It will be interesting how the combination of a T31 and a win will average out on the new WAGR ranking tomorrow wagr.com my guess is that I’ll probably hold my same position.

They crazy part of golf during COVID is the number of players on the waitlist to get into events. There were 250 inquiries to play in the Jones Cup (which had a field of 90 players). The Moot Thomas had a long waitlist and the upcoming Florida Azalea does as well.

Golf is the one sport that you can safely play without physical contact while maintaining social distancing. Golf most definitely needed a boost as its in decline nationally. For a lot of us we are still waiting to see if the Royal and Ancient will go ahead with the Senior Amateur and Senior Open in July. As of now, everything is cancelled in the UK up and through April.

I honestly don’t know how they will be able to have players from 50 countries safely come into play in these events, but I hope I am wrong. This is going to be a packed year of tournaments, I’ve got over 30 events on my calendar, some 2 day events, but most are 3 day or longer events. Being on the road alone for 27 days is not ideal, and I’d prefer to have a companion with me.

My plan is to practice Wednesday and Thursday in advance of the Florida Azalea in Palatka, putt like a pro with my sand wedge and race off to the Gainesville airport on Sunday for my 4:30 flight back home.

My T67, T31 and win in the Moot, can all be well worth the long trip with a high finish in Palatka, a tricky short course that is really fun to play.

Tomorrow I will take some photos of some of their holes and share the experience with you.

Till then- STAY TUNED

  3. Keep it up Randy!! The bladed wedge approach to putting is something I’ve never heard of, would love to see that in person some time. As my mom says to me when we play… ” they don’t ask you how, just how many “

  4. Hi, Randy. I have a question about putters. I am just getting into side-saddle putting because I have severe yips. I have narrowed it down to the Juan Putt and the Bobby Grace F-22 Ass Kicker. I’ve seen your video comparing long putters. Which would you recommend between these two? The Juan Putt ($295) costs less than what Bobby charges ($450), but I’m willing to pay more if the putter is that much better. What do you think? Also, I could not find an STX putter like yours anywhere online. Lots of “bow tie”STX putters, but they are all short length (and 70 degree lie angle I assume), and not quite like yours. Please let me know what you think. Thank you.

    • Hi Dave
      I’d go with the Juanputt It’s a really good putter, and he is an awesome guy and can be quite helpful if you have any questions or problems, Or need to change anything
      Let me know how it goes for you
