  2. Poll Poll: What to hit from 170yds out...

    On the idea of "distance claims" can we come up with a question that will give a more reasonable picture of distance. Let's try the following: Which club would you use if you had 170yds to the pin? Just because I know there will be questions: - no elevation change between you and the pin -...

Last year's pledge had 9 participants, we recorded over 200 birdies/eagles and raised over $1,000 for Canadian charities. Click here for the 2010 thread. I assume the same players from last...
