I'll get it started. -12 in round 1 and it was the strangest round I think I've ever had. Hit putts from everywhere...had no business doing that! But balanced those out with 6-7 fast or slow downswings, something I rarely do. I thought to myself if I didn't have those it could have been a crazy good round. But then again the shots I made were completely out of the ordinary too, so I guess I got what I earned. Fun course...firm fairways will create a challenge in spots.
Played nicely for most of it - so finishing -37 will therefore be only 15-20 back of the winners....
The 3ft high tiers can cause some issues - had the full range in the middle - R2 H18 managed the 2 putt from 80ft (full putting swing!) Then had the same in H1 in R3 - didn't get it up (ooer) first time, then smashed it past and eventually made a good 4th putt from about 7ft! Got some revenge on the 9th in that round - drove it to 73ft - and made it from there up the mountain.
Stunning golf course. Bogey on the first but then executed the shots I saw which resulted in -9, unheard of to be this far up the leaderboard.
Round 2 was also going well until the 13th (?) (stroke index 1, 500yd,par4, uphill) faced with a 54ft putt down two tiers, I’ll be honest I didn’t know what to do, you don’t get greens like this in my home tour. Promptly putted off the green and walked away with a double. Still finished with another -9.

What a well done course...beautiful and very fun to play
Shot a solid bogey free -7 round 1 and then was cruising with a -6 through 9 in round 2. Then came the 10th where i missed the back hole placement by maybe a couple inches and ran 70 feet back. Putted it too strong and went over the green. Putted from the fringe and it ran right off the lip and trickled all the way back down the hill...then a couple more putts that didn't make it up the hill and ran back down before i finally got it in for a quad bogey. That pretty much ruined the whole tourney for me and i finished up -4. I was still seething through round 3 and shot E. Walked away and finished up this morning with a -8 for a -19 total.
Please bring back the wind meter for the regular tour. This was the most enjoyable tournament I’ve played in a few months by being able to confidently go for slopes on the greens and hitting shots. I played like poop but that’s because I don’t really play anymore. There’s other reasons why bringing back the meter would be good but I’d rather leave it to pm’s.
