Why would the slope difference be so vast on the highlighted course setups?
Score records show an equal scoring average with over 7k rounds recorded.
I guess I'm not seeing the big picture in course ratings by the team who rated our course.
With out there notes, we have no idea how they reach these ratings.
I've looked at several other course ratings and there are courses which have similar differences.
So, I guess it's not uncommon.
I’d say there was a little karma involved.
One of the four on Friday , I also played with on Wednesday, I was bemoaning my perceived bad luck ( he actually said he’d never seen anyone get so many bad bounces , lies etc) when approaching the 9th green my Garmin watch beeped and said “ your day is looking up” which guess was a reference to the amount of steps i’d taken.
I let out a sarcastic chuckle and showed him the watch, I’m sure he didn’t really understand why it said that, but he said maybe your luck will change .
The tenth is stroke hole 1 longest par 4 on the course, I hit a really good drive,just behind the 150marker, but a poor second.
It was heading for the front right corner when it landed , bounce left a little and went in!
First time I’ve eagled that particular hole
I'm not sure what your actual question is.
The highest "slope difference" there is 10, which is less than a 9% difference, AND it's the slope, not the course rating, so you're talking about multiplying a differential by either 0.89 or by 0.83. Not a big difference.
So what's your actual question?
