    No excuses, Sam and Matt both made it last year. You should be just fine making the trip.

    I think it was an 11 hour drive for TJ and I, wasn't too bad at all. It's definitely worth it!

    I apologize if this is a silly question, but are rangefinders allowed?

    LSU you can use a range finder but then you will not be able to turn in a score.
    Just don't share the yardages with anyone else.

    I would like to turn in a score, so guess I'll just be sure to not bring it!
