2014 Valspar Championship at Innisbrook Discussion Thread - Page 2

post #19 of 78

Noticed the fairways and front of greens was pretty wet - and today we received a downpour that flood parts of the downtown Tampa area (about 10-15 miles south of Copperhead course) - so I think the course will play extra long without any roll whatsoever.  The rough around the greens, fairways is relatively long - will  be penalizing.  Greens didn't look fast - very green, plush.  Course isn't typical for Florida -  very hilly with undulating greens.  Weather clearing this evering, but will be breezy and cooler for FLA standards (high 60s) - very sunny later in the week, so it should dry out (along w/ the breeze/wind).

 

Surprised to see Padraig again. He's played here in the past. Also surprised to see Casey, Clarke.  I think many of them are using the event to "practice" and don't enter w/ high expectations.

I literally live 2 miles from Innisbrook. Going to be going to the tournament over the weekend. Looking forward to it. Usually I volunteer but this year I'm just going as a spectator.

 

Expect really high scores tomorrow. The weather forecast is a high of 58 degrees, low of 46, with 20mph winds. It's going to be a little bit like last Friday at Doral, just a little bit cooler. Had a lot of rain today but it's starting to dry out now. It's been an usually cold winter here so I wouldn't expect much rough. Weather looks beautiful over the weekend, though. Supposed to hit 70 Saturday and Sunday.

Weather is gonna be nice until Sunday.....then it could get nasty.

No rain tomorrow. The front has already gone through. Supposed to be nice the next three days, albeit windy and chilly tomorrow. Any score in the 60s will be a great score. Copperhead's a challenge even in calm conditions.

windy this a.m. ------sucks for early tee times .......probably will go out there this afternoon for several hours then most of the day Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

post #30 of 78

Yeah, it's a cold wind this morning, too. Going to go walk over and watch some golf here this afternoon. Hoping it warms up a little. Good news is the sun is out.

post #31 of 78

From the scores I'm seeing today, the course must be playing pretty tough. 2 more hours and I can finally check out the tourney on Golf Channel. 

 

Padraig teeing off....LET'S DO THIS PADDY

post #32 of 78

I really want Gary Woodland to do well. He seems like a cool guy and, of course, he hits the ball ridiculously far. 

post #33 of 78

Ya know...I wouldn't mind seeing Ole Darren Clark win it, just cuz he's a cool older dude..:-D

JD took a 12 on par 4 16th hole, shot a 90 today......I think I read that was his first ever 90 that he's recorded on the tour.

I thought that article was going to be about Long John's rookie season. So... this is his 16th time carding a double digit on a single hole on tour. I wonder if that's a record.
