    Our second stop on the 2020 ‘Early Break’ Golf Tour is Fremont Golf Club! I had the chance to play the course last year, too, and it looks even better now than it did then. What a tremendous looking course. I played the tips (black tees–6,532 yards). The putting green indicates quick, smooth greens, and that’s exactly what you find on every hole on the course. No bumps, no dry areas of greens–they are taken care of to the fullest extent. The course isn’t long, but pretty much every hole is tree-lined, so if you find yourself erratic off the tee (which I was when I played this time), prepare for a tough day of scoring. If you can keep the driver in the bag and hit long irons or a hybrid consistently straight, you’ll have a chance to score well.



     

    The bunkers were redone two years ago and they are immaculate. They honestly look like the sand you’d see on a beach, as they are white and refined. The rough at Fremont Golf Club is fair but punishing, and the fairways are always in great shape. Memorable holes on the course are hole 3, which is a long straightaway par 4 with a creek that runs about 75 yards short of the green. If your teeshot doesn’t find the fairway, good luck making par. Hole 4 is a par 3 that has a massive bunker on the left side of the green. If you’re left on the hole, you’re looking at a bogey at best, as the green runs away from that side and the ball is impossible to stop on a chip from the bunker or rough.



    Hole 8 is listed as the toughest hole on the course, as a long par 5. However, if your drive is straight, you can reach the green in two. The green is the difficult part, as it’s a smaller green than normal with lots of curve to it. Hole 9 is 90 degree left turn that requires a long iron or hybrid off the tee, and a second shot into the green will need to be struck well to avoid the pond that protects the green.

    Hole 13 is a difficult dogleg right hole that has OB right to prevent players from trying to hit into hole 14 fairway for a better angle at the hole. If your teeshot is off-line, par becomes hard to achieve, as you’ll have to either punch out or lay up for your 2nd shot, assuming you get that shot into open area for an approach. Water comes into play on holes 14 and 15, with both doglegs left requiring accurate tee shots. The course finishes with a straightaway par 4, hole 18 that does have OB left, but is otherwise gettable.



    The bunkers were redone last year and they are immaculate. They honestly look like the sand you’d see on a beach, as they are white and refined. The rough at Fremont Golf Club is fair but punishing, and the fairways are always in great shape. Water does come to play on holes 14 and 15, with both doglegs left requiring accurate tee shots.

    The unique feature of the course is the train track that goes through the middle of it. The 18 holes are pretty much divided right in the middle of the tracks, so you’ll go across them several times in the round to get to your next set of holes. I thought it was impressive how they fit 18 holes into smaller area of territory than usual—it seemed like a puzzle piece in how they fit all the holes in, which was creative.



    I highly recommend a visit to Fremont Golf Club! If you have a Nebraska Golf Passport, you can play the course. Otherwise, it’s a private course, so membership is required to get on. They always have great membership specials going on, so check them out to get more info.

    The Tiger Woods/Peyton Manning vs. Phil Mickelson/Tom Brady match was exactly what we needed

    The Tiger Woods/Peyton Manning vs. Phil Mickelson/Tom Brady match was exactly what we needed

    -Tiger and Manning won the match, 1 up, on Sunday, and it was actually fun to watch. Not overly done with commercials, for a good cause for COVID relief, and good banter during. Something like that should happen more often, whether it’s for charity or not

    -Did Sip watch at all? What caught his attention this weekend?

    Bill Moos says he will be judged more in his tenure at Nebraska for how he handled the pandemic than how many championships were won…is he right?

    Bill Moos says he will be judged more in his tenure at Nebraska for how he handled the pandemic than how many championships were won…is he right?

    -Moos talked to Sip on Friday and discussed possible scenarios for the season ahead and more, and told Sip that he thinks he’ll be judged more for how he handles COVID at Nebraska than wins and losses

    -Moos is still pretty dang popular for his hires of Frost and Hoiberg, despite much success so far…will fans really care more about the pandemic handling than wins and losses?

Early Break

I am having trouble with the pods when playing them. The stream is interrupted constantly. The pods from this station are the only ones I have trouble with.Sometimes I can back it up a little ways and the cutting out goes away. Thanks for your attn. to this.
