SOUTHERN PINES, North Carolina (DOD) –

Greg “The Loguemeister” Logue claimed his fifth Turtle today, holding off a strong showing by Dan "The Man" Moore in the final round of the Southern Pines Invitational. Firing a stellar final round of plus six points in the rain on the tough Mid Pines course, Logue won the Turtle outright, adding to his Turtle wins in 1992, 1996, and 2000 (all shared with Michael "The Calcutta Chairman" Wood and others), and 2003. With the win, Logue lays claim. . . .  [Read more in the 2017 Dimpled Orb Digest.]

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.
