Do you have a Major?

match play championship at local club.. this year I'm more excited since I'm defending champ..

also  i play in a ryder cup style tournament which is a 3 day event.. we typically have 10-12 players to a team.. 

Ours is in July! a 3-day major in Branson. We are based out of Oklahoma and traveling to Missouri is new for us this year. Can't wait!!!

Hi TT,

With the TOUR's Major season soon to be 2/3rds done, I'm interested to hear in how all of you have done in your Majors.

I've had a really fun golf season so far, and with 3 of my 4 gone, I'm feeling pretty good about the results.  In the Member Member 4 ball we got the ax (lost 2 and 1).  In the Woo we placed 3rd, and we had another 3rd place finish for the 3 Day Member Guest.  I guess a missed cut and 2 bronze medals aren't too bad.  Hopefully I can come thought in the club championship.

How did you guys do?

Nice work, Hotsauce!

My majors are in full swing right now. I'm midway through our Blackstone Valley Challenge (the men's league from four courses in my area are battling it out for bragging rights) and I was able to help our team take top honors in the last event. I won the Net and Gross match in my group, and posted one of the lower Net scores for the team, so I was happy about that.

The MGA Amateur Pub Links Qualifier just passed and I played a really solid 16.5 holes. Too bad it was an 18-hole qualifier. Had one bad hole and struggled with the flat stick on another green. Take those out and I qualify. Instead, missed the cut by a couple of shots but I was pretty happy with the round overall.

Next up, match 3 out of 4 for the challenge and then our club championship is around the corner.

Feeling good about the game right now, just need to work on getting a little more consistent off the tee.

Great job everyone!!!  Enjoyed reading your results..

Wish i could say i played in some "majors" but i don't.  Hopefully soon...

Best of luck the rest of way guys!!!

At a boy Mike D.  There's nothing better than winning the Net and Gross.  The pub links is no joke either.  I'm glad you had a decent showing, and I'm sure you'll get em next year.  Good luck in the 3 out of 4.

My "major" consists of a little two-on-two rivalry I enjoy with three golfing buddies.  We call it our "Chalice" match because the winners get to take home a traveling trophy, that is basically nothing more than a cheap plastic gold cup, but it represents so much more to those involved.

Teams are always the same and are very evenly matched.  We play it as a 2-man scramble in a match play format, and we also incorporate a little skins game.  Usually a few bucks change hands, nothing significant, with the bragging rights that come with packing the chalice home being the real prize. 

In the most recent rematch my partner and I jumped out to a 2-up lead after 4 holes and thought we were cruising.  Then we pushed on the next several holes, and gave one away on #9, leaving us 1-up to start the back nine.  Both teams birdied 10 and 12, and we pushed on each hole through #15.  Our opponents birdied 16 to make it all square and give them all the momentum. 

On 17 both teams made birdie, bringing us all square to the 18th hole, a dog leg left par-5 with OB on the left side.  Our opponents had a decent drive that left them in the rough.  I knew they had all the momentum so we wanted to avoid extra holes at all cost.  My partner hit a safe playable drive, so I let 'er rip and hit a pretty little draw that cut the corner a bit, leaving us 185 to the hole.  Our opponents hit their approach just short of the green, so I knew this was our chance.  5-iron don't fail me now.  Well, it didn't.  I put my Pro-V1 about 15 feet left of the hole.  Our opponents came valiantly close to chipping in for eagle, but had to settle for a conceded birdie.  Our eagle putt was a left to right downhiller that broke the whole way.  My partner had not made a putt all day, lipping out on several opportunities.  Well, he didn't lip this one out.  Dead-center.  Bottoms.  Eagle.  Victory.  Chalice.

Then we proceeded to put on our "Chalice Champs" tee shirts that we had printed up a couple weeks prior in anticipation of a possible victory, and wore these while enjoying a frosty beverage with our adversaries.

Can't wait for the rematch.

We had the first City Major here in El Paso over Memorial Day and I finished 4th. Both days the front nine had my number. The first weekend of August is the City Championship which is held over 3 days and this year at two of my favorite courses in town. Then I defend in my flight at our Club Championship around Labor Day. We had a few others in between, but my sponsors fell through due to the lack of results. LMAO :). I hope everyone plays well in their tourney's and Team Titleist comes out on Top.

My major is the CT State Am qualifier. I signed up to play as a motivator for hard work an practice: now I have a reason to practice more often. I played a real solid 16.5 holes as well and just like Mike D however, I was playing in an 18 hole qualifier too. Just more motivation for next year!
