With The Longest Travelling Ball having gone down in the annals of golfing history and now in retirement....

 

 

 

...the son of TLTB, TLTB2, has taken off on his own road to fame...we hope.

 

He made his first appearance at the 2014 ISG Nationals, when he was used in the ISG National Supreme Putting Championship, and was then announced as TLTB2.

 

Rules:

 

1: Par 3 holes ONLY...scores on Par 4's and 5's will not be recognised.

2: Water holes are ok...you know the consequences...though non water holes preferred. 

3: Photo of hole or hole sign, preferrably with TLTB2 in it would be nice.

4: Record Players Name - Course Name - Country - State - Hole No. - Hole Distance - Date Played - Score.

5: Post info in this thread ASAP after playing him.

 

Let's see how far this baby can go.

 

So, first up I played him at Newcastle Golf Club, NSW,  on Hole 7 , 131m,  21/10/14, score was a very ordinary 5. Pressure not to lose on first outing was immense, though if I'd have remembered that the 12th was an easier par 3 ('cause I pared it) I would have used it there.

   

 

He is off to the USA with L4G in the next couple of weeks. 

 

 Put your requests in now...Tol, you can have him upon his return, sometime.  :D

 

Good Luck all!

A long way off but if there is a register, I will play the ball at TOC and as far north as Royal Dornoch if it arrives to me in mid May next year.

It is the son of TLTB after all, so like father, like son.
