Re: Mini Tour play.

So the green holes run adjacent to the blue holes? What? Oh man!

May you have many fairways and greens!!

Re: Mini Tour play.

Well, day two of practice rounds start today.

Yesterday we played the Buan Namwon course which stretches out to just over 7300yards! Thankfully we didn't play the 247y par 3 from the back so that made the course a little shorter, although it was still at 217y. That being the case this course didn't feel like 7300yards. I think its because a lot of the yardage is in the par 5s, automatic 3-shot holes. I did have a few holes with long irons in on par 4s, but for the most part I was hitting 7, 8 or 9. The greens are HUGE, but pretty flat. They roll true enough and maybe to about a 9.5 or 10 on the stimp. I shot 2 over yesterday which I was pretty happy with. Made a triple on a par-5. Just a total brain fart collapse from 60y in! Anyway.

Today is on to the Jeonjun Sunchang course, which if I remember correctly plays to 7144y. Another bit of a beast. It seems like the water may come into play a little bit more on this course. Yesterday it was there, but it would require some seriously stray shots to find the hazard. This one it looks like its a little closer from the fairway.

I'll be checking back in tomorrow. Anyeonghikeseyo.

Re: Mini Tour play.

Well, practice round number two was interesting. On paper, an easy enough course. Generous fairways and the greens were fantastic. The only problem, 4 club winds! All day! Kinda kills a practice round as I couldn't really get any feel for yardage. On a 401y par 4, I went Driver, 3wood and was still 30y short! On a number of occasions I hit my 5i from 140y, which I normally hit 195!

In a way, the wind can be a good thing. Really seperate the players that belong from the players that don't. And thankfully, my home course is renowned for having really windy days at least four days of the week from November to March.

I'm at the course right now. I have two friends playing today and tomorrow. I plan on following one guy around and really study the greens. Then I'm off on my first round on Thursday.

Re: Mini Tour play.

This thread should be a sticky (if it isn't already) and should have an asterisk beside it. I love it.

Ben keep up the hard work man; I love reading about your rounds and progress!

Re: Mini Tour play.

What a dumb day! 48*, 3-4 club wind all day! It gets better. 12/14 Fairways, 13/18GIR, Not bad, right? 36putts, 36 PUTTS!!! Bad! What a joke. I can't tell you how many times I wanted to break my putter over my knee. But, I stayed calm, or convinced myself I was calm. I guess tomorrow is another day. Scores aren't posted yet. I think I've got to shoot 66 at least, to have a chance. Wish me luck!
