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.

It is favorite time of the year to play: 50-70 degrees and greens are finally perfect.

Fantastic, really makes me miss golf in the MidWest.  It does not, however, make me miss the shorter playing season.

I agree, no better time to play than late fall especially here in TN, unfortunately winter is coming along with that pesky time change........

Great year Q!!

Time to recharge, work on a few things and get ready for next year.

Any new or different events you looking to play in next year?

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.

That is a crap ton to play not that awesome courses... guess that's why I retired until this year. I didn't even realize the we just paid $165 dollars to play Lake Quivera...

You know, I had realized how much money it is in the aggregate but never thought of it like that; and you're right. $75/round at Colbert Hills, $82.50/round at Lake Quivira, and $75/round for Mid Amateur Series are borderline ripoffs. But $200 for one round at Firekeeper and minimum three rounds at KCCC is pretty darn good, especially if you can ball out like you did and play six rounds!

And congratulations, Park! GolfWRX, meet your 2017 Kansas Mid Amateur and Kansas City Masters Champion!!! This dude can f'n play, one of the best I've ever had a chance to play with/against. Thankfully, he's on my side for the Kanza Players Cup! Hopefully he's sick or out of town for our Club Championship soon. :taunt:  "The champ is here!"

Don't make me blush Q. Now that I got back into golf this year, I'll start trying too hard and playing bad before you know it don't worry.

PS: You were right on the Kanza deal, wound up being the starting point for getting me back to playing tournaments again. So I owe you thanks for that.

I remember reading of concerns with the wearability of the Apex Pros finish once upon a time.  Just curious how your irons have held up to the rigors of practice and tournaments?

I keep ditching my AP2s for 4 year old and bought used Legacy Blacks by the end of each of the last two golf seasons and am thinking Callaway vs. Titelist for next iron set.

I haven't had any problems with wear, and I practice A LOT. My 9i has a little face wear that you'd expect from a forged club, but nothing crazy.

LOL, saw your wedge pics so I figured if these clubs hold up for you, they should be good for the rest of us! Thanks.

The USGA just announced the 2019 Fourball has been relocated to Bandon Dunes!

Chambers Bay was supposed to host, but they going through a turfgrass transition project and have been shelved until 2021. With the 2018 US Open at Shinnecock, 2018 US Am at Pebble, and now 2019 Fourball at Bandon, the USGA entry numbers this year could be insane.

Great playing! I hear you that it's getting almost too expensive to play in out of town tournaments, especially when one factors in hotel, travel and meal expenses. Not to mention paying for son's college tuition. I only played in two Missouri Golf events this year, only because I was able to sleep in my own bed.

Those are nice courses.
