    Has anyone ever participated in this tournament? I just got an email invite for it, but the only thing holding me back is...I SUCK! I can turn the tee box into a sand trap. I can single-handedly raise the water level of any water hazard, a couple inches with lost balls. When I am in a sand trap, I make it rain...sand. I leave so many balls in the woods, it's like I am hiding Easter eggs...but I'm not. I am exaggerating a bit...but not by much...lol. I have been to Shadow a couple times to observe the Michael Jordan Golf Tournaments, and always thought the course looked awesome! Anyways, I would love to play the course, but not if I am going to be the only one out there looking like a fool. How bad are some of the worst players that play this tournament? I would mainly be going for the fun and prizes, but I would hate to be the only one having fun, if my play is pissing off everyone else.

    Yeah, I have played it a few times, it was canceled last year. It is mostly Ron and his friends, and it is a fun event, not too serious. I will say that most of the golfers are moderately good to very good, I have not seen too many "bad" golfers out there. I already confirmed for this year's event. I wouldn't worry about it too much. If you want to go out and play, go out and have fun! I can't remember the format as it has changed several times so I do not know if they take handicap into account or not.

    I thought that was held at TPC LV and its like 6-8k a foursome. Or is there another date for that one?

    Moderately good to very good is way above my play level...lol. The wife is tightening the reigns on my Vegas trips, so I am trying to find any excuse to get back out there...lol. I was planning on going for the $300k BJ tournament at Mirage, later this month, but it ended up getting cancelled.

    sin, can't help you on the specific event, but if there's not a lot of money or immense swag on the line, most players are cool with most any level of play. The key is to smile, have fun, be cool, pick up if out of it and just keep moving forward. We're all sinners to some extent on the course -- save shifter, that boy got game -- and to know is to forgive.
