SOUTHERN PINES, North Carolina, and WASHINGTON D. C. (DOD). – White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs touched off a firestorm of controversy today by announcing that President Barack  Hussein Obama intends to nationalize the Terrapin Travelin’ Trophy.  Known to its aficionados as “The Turtle,” the Trophy is awarded annually to the winner of the Southern Pines Invitational Golf Trip Tournament.  It is universally recognized as the most desired trophy in sport.  In a move that symbolizes fairness, Gibbs said . . .

Welcome to the revamped 2010 Dimpled Orb website.  As we go online, Michael Wood has been forced to withdraw from this year's event due to medical circumstances.   He will undergo major surgery soon.   This will be the first Golf Trip Michael has ever missed.   Everyone in the field  will miss all that Michael brings to the Trip.  We all pray that Michael makes a speedy recovery and returns to the Southern Pines Invitational next year.

We have made a few changes to the website that we trust you will enjoy.  The new Player Profiles for 2010 are here.   We have kept the Profiles for 2009 here for performance comparisons. 

The Real-Time Leaderboard now occupies its own page, with links to daily scorecards for each round.  This will allow players and fans alike to see how their favorites are doing hole-by-hole.   The Past Results now have their own pages apart from the Leaderboard.  The History of the Golf Trip is still here as a sub-page of Special Features

This year we're going to try liveblogging the Golf Trip.  Be sure to check out Fans of the Dimpled Orb on Facebook, and Chuck's OrbTweets on Twitter, for the latest updates from time-to-time as the tournament progresses. 

We have also added a Site Map here.  This general index can get you to about anything on the site if you'd rather dispense with scrolling through pages to get there.  There is also a Site Search engine to the left that can help you find what you are looking for. 

Get ready, as the Tournament is just around the corner.  The Invitation from Your Noble Calcutta Chairman, in absentia, awaits you here.   The pairings and tee times are here.  And try the interactive map or click on the link below if you need directions around the rockslides to get to Southern Pines. 

Good Luck, and may your hunt for the Turtle prove fruitful!
