    Well while looking over the old courses it came to me that it was time for some pin updates. 

    There are several courses that need new pins . Torrey Pines Erin Hills Olympic Club Pinehurst #2 and good old Royal St.George . All of these courses need some additional pin placements . So since we arent getting any new courses how about some new pins instead?

    Hopefully we could get new pins on Pinehurst #2 for the VUSO this year

    I think new pins on Pinehurst #2 are coming with the next update.

    This is true, there will be news posted by Nico Monday.  There will also be another tournament set up featuring all the new pins, similar to the Bear Trap Open they did for new PGA pins.  Also all Lucky Brand apparel will be replaced by Malbon.  As I recall the new pins and apparel were the big takeaways from Nico's Q&A on Discord Friday.

    Oh, and they are fairly certain they will have a new course by end of 2024 (I think that's what was mentioned, could be wrong).

    Unfortunately no Cinco de Mayo Sombreros @SamSpayed

    That's too bad.  I still think they are a good idea.

    Please tell me they didn't find another 18 holes on the Pacific Dunes/Brandon complex. A course where we can use D1 would be nice.

    Sorry, I have no idea what a "D1" is, but I doubt it will be on the Brandon complex.

    Also after I re-read the transcript I realized he didn't say new course completed by end of year, but that they are in talks and hopefully have something contractually locked down by then.  So I kind of put words in Nico's mouth that he didn't actually say, so wanted to put that out there.

    I believe he meant "driver" by D1. W1 (1-wood) would've made more sense, but anyways...

    I see Simon.  Or 1W, Dr, or even Driver (if you have the spare time to type those extra 4 keystrokes) 😉

    And I'm sure they (Nico) were speaking to a new "full course", not a Par 3 or CTTH, so you you'll be able to use your D1, W1, 1W, Dr, or Driver whenever it finally does roll out.  I'm just anxious to see how long it takes SoCalJim to make a Double Eagle on it whenever it does finally come out.

    LMAO And that has to be done with "inferior" clubs + the rock, default starter ball, of course! 😆
