I played Carter Plantaion yesterday. The course was in great shape. The greens were lighting fast. Got a little backed up, and had a 5 hour round. I don't know what is going on, but I hit my irons about about 15 yards further than I normally do. Maybe I am striking the ball better? It caused s...

Shot a 79 (par 62) at Audubon today. Left a lot of shots out there. Don't think I birdied any holes. Lot of long par puts to save me from a really bad score. Wedge game from 100-80 yards was pathetic. Had two bets going on, finished up $2 net. Weather was fantastic....

Played Lakewood today. Too many three putts out there. I was working on a new, more neutral grip, and not cocking my wrist on the backswing. The front nine was a little rough, but started playing respectable golf on the back, until my tee shot landed in a fairway bunker on 18, then into the pond....

We already have a list of acceptable appraisers. We don't send the bid out to everyone. Also, just because one appraiser has the highest price, doesn't mean that the quality will reflect that.
And as far as getting your own appraisal. I should have specified only of you are trying to sell the ...
