    Definitely gotta keep an eye on Joaquin. Even without the motivation to pay the most expensive surgery in the history of man kind; this guy always was going to be a star. And it seems that time is 2021.
    If they have not yet, I think they can safely start the surgery at this point. It will get paid.

    As for the 18th: I’ve the best play that shot many times. The OB idea is ok but quarky. They have added bushes and what not but obviously not enough.

    I really don’t get these pga tour golf courses whom never add touches to the course to keep its integrity. There really is so much they can do. Hedges, bushes, more palms, another monkey pod. Move the tee closer to the existing row of trees. For goodness sakes, do something! Make more investments to maintain integrity. These tour courses have something most courses don’t, the pga tour, which comes with extra revenues but also responsibilities to constantly upgrade the courses integrity; as of course Augusta National does. Alterations don’t have to be huge expensive changes, they just have to be smart. Easier said then done when you can just rest improving the course because it already has the pga tour.
    Colonial is in the same position as Waialae. Both places should take a year off and come back with changes that eliminate all the cheese being applied by the great players on these two great courses.

      Baxter, I figure you might have enough pull in the Islands to get something done at Waialae! Actually, it’s a treatment, not a surgery that Rafita needs and the money has now been totally raised thanks to Joaquin, his efforts, social media, etc. A great thing, I hope the child will survive and thrive. As for Joaquin, love his game, has that little dip that makes him different….he’s going to be a big star out there.

    I have some pull but not sure it goes quite that far. What we need is Rolf as a DL News reader.
