October is a bittersweet time of year. I think it is the best time to golf, but the competitive season comes to an end.

Events:
  • Kanza Players Cup (Team W, 1-1-1)
  • Konza Prairie Amateur (51st)
  • Kansas City Fourball (6th)
  • Kansas Amateur Match Play (Qualified for match play, lost in extra holes to #7 seed)
  • Heart of America Fourball (Quarterfinals)
  • High Plains Amateur (8th)
  • Kansas Mid Amateur (30th)
I was disappointed in my finishes in the Konza Prairie Amateur and Kansas Mid Amateur on two courses I thought suited me well, but that is golf. My game/swing didn't feel any different, but I just didn't score. I'm learning.

I finished 6th in the East in Mid Amateur Player of the Year and qualified for another Kanza Players Cup! The West will host at Flint Hills National, Golf Digest #97 and 2017 USGA Junior Amateur host, on May 14-16.

Statistics (in tournament rounds):
  • 75.19 Scoring Average (74.4 Last 10)
  • -0.25 Strokes Gained Putting (+0.04 Last 10)
  • 5.38% Three Putt Avoidance (5.03% Last 10)
  • 59.12% Greens in Regulation
  • 50.38% Short Game Saves (92.3% < 10 yards, 54.1% 10-20 yards, 28.57% 20-30 yards)
  • 33.3% Sand Saves
  • 58.51% Fairways Hit (16.6% miss left, 24.9% miss right)
There are definitely some places for improvement, and I look forward to attacking those weaknesses this off-season.

Well done, Q, a fine year!  I'm halfway home to the goal set at the start of the year, and have a chance to finish it off in about three weeks.

I've considered adding an event or two. I thought about the Nebraska Amateur or Texas Mid Amateur to visit Bram, but unfortunately they all seem to have residency requirements.

To be honest, it gets pricey too. Just last year:
  • Kanza Players Cup (including new bag) $230
  • Konza Prairie Amateur $150
  • Kansas Amateur Qualifier $90
  • Kansas City Fourball $150
  • Kansas Amateur $110
  • Heart of America Fourball $100
  • High Plains Amateur $135
  • Kansas Mid Amateur $165
  • Kansas Mid Amateur Series $75/ea.
$1,205 for entries and that doesn't even include travel expenses, cart fees, etc.

Don't even get me started on USGA entry fees; the 18-hole Mid Amateur and Fourball Qualifiers were $175 and $150 respectively.

I haven't bought a club since I was fitted by Callaway at the ECPC. I'm going to need a new 60* wedge over the off-season, but that is it. I'll likely go through 2018 with the same setup, although a new Apex Pro iteration would be hard to look away from.

I heard rumours there is no apex pro coming due to their being x forged?

The new X Forged is what will be replacing the '16 Apex and Apex Pro.  Haven't settled on what irons I'll be playing next year, but one possibility would be ordering a set of X Forged with the lofts of the shorter irons adjusted to match those of the Apex MB so I can carry a 52* and 58* while adding a club at the long end of the bag instead of carrying a 45* PW, 50* GW, 55* SW, 60* LW.

In a Callaway Facebook Live video yesterday, they were saying that the X Forged isn't really a direct replacement for the Apex Pro. 1 Piece forging, and they said that it'll be less forgiving than the Apex Pro.

I can understand why they would say that because the Pro will likely stay in the line for a (short) period of time and there are notable differences in the construction.  However, it's hard to envision a scenario where Apex Pro sales will continue to be strong enough after X Forged is out there to warrant keeping the Pro in the line-up for very long. Not saying I'm absolutely right about that, just my hunch. Sounds to me like they're trying to semantically soften the blow for the guy who likes his '16 Pros and might be frustrated by them being replaced in the product line 2 years after initial release.

Agreed on all counts.

Too little variation between the two offerings. Too fine of line, probably splitting the same target demographic.
