Can anyone win the Grand Slam of Golf?  Here's your chance to crown yourself the champion!

Tour Name:  Grand Slam of Golf
All courses: 2 rounds with wind display off (assuming it works!)
Time:  10 days

Drum roll please...and the courses are


The Masters:  Stone Hollow on Yeti River (Dr. Yeti)
US Open:  Boulder Pointe Final Edition   (theclv_24)
British Open:  Bushtail Valley  (guitardude_324)
PGA Championship:  Sevenlakes on the Vale   (Biggins)

Sorry to those of you looking for themes closer to their respective majors but at this point I just wanted to pick well built but difficult tracks for a tough test of golf.  Fore!!

I can't say it enough - but it's so nice to have a golf game where you play well and your scorecard looks like this.

I shot -5 my first round, but then struggled to shoot E on the second round.  So I'm sitting -5 after Yeti rounds.

I don't understand turning the wind off personally.  All it does is make me waste an extra 10-15seconds of time each hole to zoom to the flag on the pin to see how strong it is.

I don't bother zooming into pin off my drive as I just go by audio cues.  Overall I still think it adds a few shots per round.

I think having the no grids option flash the grids on/off in about a second would make that option more viable and would be a better option to make a tournament more difficult.  Would give you a brief look at the slope since it's nearly impossible to judge by looking alone.

I think I will start this one soon. I always feel obliged when Boulder Pointe is involved, and I haven't played Stone Hollow or Sevenlakes yet so I can check those off my list, too.

Driver gave me fits in round two - was off to a good start before the wheels fell off.

I played my first round this morning .  I started off with two bogeys (yikes), then had a solid run of pars and birdies to bring me to about -3, then battled back and forth until I finished at -3. 

I will say I never had been this nervous on shots, especially putts, before!  It adds some nice drama haha

Doing okay...until the 2nd round of the US Open.  Missed about 375,457 putts by an inch!!   >:(  Not sure what the leaderboard looks like (hope they get that fixed soon), but I think I'm still in contention with 2 events to go.

1st round of US Open.  What a rollercoaster ride that was - glad to finish under par!
1 eagle, 5 birds, 3 bogies, and a double bogey.

Played your Ghost in that round and finished at -2 as well.  Had to make a tough putt on 18 for par.  Fun round!

Shot a -6 on first round at British Open.  If you get a chance to play with my ghost ball, you will see quite the circus approach shot on 18 that led to eagle.
Liking this tour a lot.

I just finished the British first round and saw your ghost ball.  That was awesome!  My second shot hit the cup and almost had a double eagle.  My last 3 rounds have been my best back-to-back-to-back rounds ever.  My new approach to 'not try to do anything stupid and play what the course gives me' is working out great.  Avoid the killer flying into bunkers and on hard holes just hit to a safe spot on or around the green.  Textbook golf and making putts!  I haven't won any of the tournaments or tours yet, but putting myself in great shape after 5 rounds.

I need lessons on this mentality.  I always think it but I never follow through!
