Welcome to season 8! If you haven't been around the last few weeks, there have been some changes to the tours. The swing difficulty has been changed to pro, along with a few other settings tweaks for the season that you can see below from Doyley:
We are starting out our season with a #blessed tournament at Arthur Dunes by Trayys . This true test of golf demands some pin point approaches into treacherous greens. I think this challenge and new swing format will be a lot of fun. Good luck out there everyone!

Good luck to everyone in the new season, I believe the switch to pro will make things a lot more competitive, fully expect to see lots of players tightly bunched up, probably high -40s or low 50s every week.. the odd putt here and there could make all the diff..
For me, The enjoyment in the game is back, it’s nice to hit mostly perfects therefore I only have myself to blame for any poor golfing decisions
The winds were kind on the opening week, would think there will be a few - 50 totals recorded…
Myself, consistent scoring if nothing else -11. -12. -11. -11 Total - 45

Well i played rd1 like 80% of the European Ryder Cup Team.....RUBBISH
Par on the Par 5 1st, BOGEY on the Par 3 2nd, way to go numpty, great start, finished -6
Now with the new swing, my mind set is back to my old way, try and 50% the rds, -9 thats my target number for each rd, ok it may not be enough to compete, but maybe, just maybe enough to squeak inside the cutline each week.
Back to Rd2, played better, -13, so thats -19 thru 36H's, fingers crossed.

Started with -16 and -10. In a good position to pick up a promo mark with a solid showing in rounds 3 and 4. These settings feel closer to how the last two games in the franchise played. Consistently the game again for the first time since the release.

excited to be back, but off to a slow start. only went -6 in R1. did not even hit the ball badly, 15 GIRs and all the fairways but one but sank NOTHING. 29 putts. combination of needing to get better proximity to the hole but also just draining those tricky 10-20 footers with a couple feet of break on 183s. oh well. we're back and i'm like a kid on xmas about it

I played all 4 rounds and shot a -43. But was -18 for the first two Rounds. Will determine if I will continue with this society after this event. The scores are maybe a little too low for me. But a very nice course
Opened with a -9 and -10 for -19 and a missed cut by a couple of shots I expect, hopefully I can at least avoid a Doyley red kiss this week as I've got two hanging over from S7.
All down to my poor putting; lipped out 5 or 6 times over the two rounds and shaved the cup at least as much again. If I managed to make half of these I would have an easy cut made at -24 or so; if I got lucky and made them all I'd be looking at -31 or so. Unfortunately the Pro swing change doesn't help you read greens better . Will finish up rd's 3 & 4 for putting practice (no doubt I'll be dropping putts from everywhere when it doesn't count). Onto next week.
alejandroacantilado: the PGA is doing a great job of setup, and I think the USGA could really learn from them. The bunkers, the decision to not cut the greens when the wind is up. They have to remember that when they go back to Shinnecock in a few years...

alejandroacantilado: man, too bad Hanse couldn't do anything about those cart paths.
