Re: Anyone played Pebble in the last few weeks?About the growing in the fairway issue, here's one for you...They're already starting to narrow the fairways at The Olympic Club in preperation for the 2012 US Open. Now, maybe they're just growing it in to change the course for good, but a couple of the holes are about 10-15 yards grown in on certain sides.
I had a buddy play Pebble on Monday through work, just shot an e-mail to him, he said the course was just playing ridiculously hard. Weather wasn't the greatest in Norcal on Monday, he said there were about 25-30 mph winds with rain on and off all day. He's a pretty good golfer, about a 1 or 2 handicap, and shot 84 with no birdies and nothing worse than a bogey. He also mentioned since the wind was so bad, you just had to play to the middle of every green and hope to get lucky, and holes 9 and 10 were playing close to 500 yards since they were into the wind. Weather here is beautiful right now, hopefully its nice for you still nice week.
Here's his last response...
"Yeah, def had to start over the ocean. Hit my 135 club and yardage was 105 and just barely got on the front. 17 was playing 2 ½ clubs as well, luckily the pin was on the right side of that green, so it was a 4 iron for me and just snuck on. Around the greens is where you can eat up a lot of strokes with the rough. Next time I go out there, I would definitely play some holes differently. You can attach some of the shorter ones and then others you just need to survive."
