    Had a good friend who owned a home on Lake Pinehurst and had us down for golf at least once a year for nearly a decade. I was crushed when he sold it and retired to western Michigan. Once played No. 2 with son Mike. He wanted to play from the tips. One of my most miserable rounds. Sounds like it hasn't changed much in the years that I've been gone. Still is "golf heaven."

    Nephew didn't play the tips, but the blue tee's. He can hit it 300 with his driver. On a couple of holes us green tee seniors had a bit more than 150 yard advantage. :eek:

    USA off to a good start 4-1 in alternate shots, looked like it was going to be a sweep early on but surprisingly Scottie Scheffler and Sam Burns blew a 2 up lead in the final few holes to lose their match.

    Four ball today.

    As previously posted, last week family was at Pinehurst. This week the other nephew (Matt) is at Pine Valley for the Crump Cup. It's an elite level Mid-Am event, invitation only. Field is 64 (48 Mid Am's and 16 Seniors) and they start with 2 rounds of stroke play, he was tied for the lead after Rd 1 and was 3 rd after R2. So that moves him to the Championship Flight for the Match Play. it's the first time he's made the Championship Flight. They play 4 rounds Sat and Sunday. That's a lot of golf! I hope chasing around 2 toddlers has kept him in shape.

    Funny thing is because of the kids and business he's played less competitive golf than most years. But with match play it gets a lot tougher, I hope he does well.

    Back to the Pro's. USA is up 8-2 on the World, Jordan Spieth has been pretty impressive teamed with JT. The team that has been perplexing is Scottie Scheffler and Sam Burns. They lost yesterday blowing a lead and then again today they had the lead and let the World guys catch them and get the tie.

    Foursomes Play tomorrow.

    Looks like the USA will prevail, but the Internationals have put up a good fight.

    The only disappointment is the play of Scheffler, who just didn't play as expected. Lost his singles match to finish out the week.

    Nephew didn't advance to the Semifinals at the Crump Cup. He went 18 holes and lost 1 down. Still a great week at one of the top courses in the US.

    Something I didn't know about Pine Valley, 1) there is no out of bounds anywhere on the course 2) there are no rakes in the bunkers. Land in a foot print, tough deal with it!

    The surprise is Max Homa, who went 4-0. Great run by him.

    Best International? Tom Kim? He's only 20.
