Really, this play from anyone who has any kind of mathematical skill is almost a must bet. First of all I think Europe is just the better team, they actually play for their country and more importantly they like each other. USA is currently to individualized and the animosity between Brooks and Bryson is undeniably going to cause some friction amongst the team. Even if I thought all things were even or that Team USA was the purely dominant team I would still take Europe here based on the pure value of the bet. Don’t shoot the messenger but lets go Team Europe!!!

A pros pro…Alice Cooper with a concert tonight at the Bank of NH might as well take a quick little drive down the road to get a quick 18 in before playing in front of 10,000 people. For those curious Alice Cooper is obsessed with golf and plays as a 4 out of Phoenix Country Club
Unfortunate news coming out of the Bay State as Mass could not quite get enough players for to field a team of 16 and for that reason will be pulling out of the 2021 Colony cup. This will change the format now back to match play for the remaining states of Maine and New Hampshire. It was a tough year for Mass this year to get the turnouts they wanted and with some scheduling issues for that first week in October it just made it tough to get the players to make the trip.
We thank Ryan McElhinney for everything he has done for us over the past 3 years with LFG and has grown it to a great place and has gotten the name out there for us. Although, Ryan will be leaving us as he focuses more on his career we do plan on continuing on with what we have started and will just have some new faces in place to help us run out.

Well done gentleman.
In honor of Lucas Glovers win this weekend, here is a look back at when his wife would beat him and call him a loser after bad rounds.
This was such a crazy story, I am happy that Lucas was able to bounce back after this and get another W on the tour. He deserves it.
