Welcome to the Golf Trip.

The Golf Trip enters 2017 in a rebuilding phase. Attrition continues to take its toll, as four more regular players joined the ranks of Golf Trip retirees. Tracy "Tiger" Thompson and his Partner Jon "Hairball" Lawler decided they would no longer participate in the tournament. Danny "Depot Stove" Pressley could not participate due to other commitments, prompting the withdrawal of his partner and defending Templeton Cup champion Sam "Stovepipe" Pressley.

In the face of an already dwindled field, Mike "Grizzly Adams" King opted for a sabbatical this year, leaving Richard "The Envy" Matlock sans partner. After an excruciating search no substitute partner could be found, leaving the field at eleven for 2017.

The diminished field and the retirements of Thompson and Lawler left Michael "The Chairman" Wood unpersuaded that he could conduct a meaningful Calcutta. Consequently, no Calcuttas will be held this year, ending a longstanding tradition.

The rest of the field remains as it was in 2016. The updated profiles are available here.

As always, the links to essential information are available here: Initial Quotas Chart; Tournament Invitation; Tournament Rules; Room Assignments; and Tee Times and Pairings.

Good luck as we move forward to reestablish the glory of the Golf Trip.
