Ha - Kevin seems like a good guy. My wife is from Central Georgia and he reminds me of some of her friends, personality-wise . .not golf-ability-wise, of course.
You know who I think would be really fun to play a round with? Tim Herron.
Then I'm assuming they had to play Monday to make that 54 holes. That seemed to be the opinion of the PGA tour director. And Faldo asserted that the guys on the leader board would try like Hell to get it to 54 to make it an official event.
This is not surprising, as the Scots have been maneuvering "par" for a while. I've read many an article where American golfers have gone to Scotland to play the links there, and encountering less than clement conditions, have been advised by their caddies that "par" for the day might be 76 or 77, no matter what the scorecard said!
Having played 18 today in no more than 50 degrees, and with a cold wind howling out of the North, I can fully appreciate such a sentiment!
About the same really.
Home course (Fountaingrove) slope is 132 (135 from the tips, which I occasionally play), Blackhorse is 131, Bayonet is 135.
I have just regressed horribly with my shortgame, and I also struggled off the tee.
