Saw this course mentioned in the 702 yard par 5 thread..,

http://clubsg.skygolf.com/courses/scorecard.php?id=7333

Assuming the tour pros get in their normal routine like at any other tournament (practice rounds and range work), what would ...

the final winning score be?

the low round of the week?

What are you asking about? There are two courses. One is 8325 yards.

The course rating is 81.7, so they'd average about 76. The low would be about 70, probably.

Just some quick figures. PGA Tour pros are about +4 to +6, and of course that's the average of their best half of their rounds, so their true average is higher.

Well, the ones that is 8300 yards. I did say Pines Course.

The tour pros would average 76? They play on courses rated 76+ all the time and still shoot 8-12 under.

i heard at that level, handicap gets thrown out. Phil doesn't go up to Spieth and say hey, I'm a +5 and you're a +6. Give me some strokes!

People have still calculated their handicaps. It's not that difficult to do.

By plugging those tee distances into the strokes gained chart here, you get an average round of upper 70s.  Not sure if that adds to the conversation! Lots of variables to consider, but probably a decent starting point.

Yeah my initial post said 76-77 and 70-71, but I thought more people would try to argue with those, so I took off the higher number. :-)

    • As a side note I do have one set of clubs aimed towards beginners and another set aimed towards better players and are "less forgiving". I honestly don't notice that much of a difference so I wonder if it's really that important.
    • Hello Arturo28mx, Thanks for the response.  I'm not sure the analogy fits my question very well though, or perhaps I didn't communicate my question well. To me it's not about "I want to learn to drive a car so I'll buy a Ferrari to force myself to learn to be a better driver.".  I agree with you, I don't see how buying a Ferrari would make me a better driver than say, a Toyota Corolla. It's more like "I want to learn to learn to drive a manual sports car but manual sports cars usually have very precise clutches and don't offer the driver a large margin of error.  Would it be better or faster for me to start by learning on a manual car whose clutch has a large margin of error and working my way up, or dive in the deep end right away and start with a manual car whose clutch has a small margin of error right off the bat." The way I see it, generally speaking, people learn and improve faster when they are forced to.  It usually takes people a lot longer to learn or improve in something if there's no sense of urgency or necessity.  Of course there are people who can keep themselves motivated and will learn or improve very quickly regardless; but generally speaking, urgency and necessity are very good motivators. My goal is to be able to consistently strike the ball in the center of the club face.  My question is, would it be better to force myself to use less forgiving golf club heads right at the beginning, necessitating me to really focus on consistently striking the ball perfectly center right away.  Or use more forgiving golf club heads at first and remove the necessity to strike the ball perfectly center every time since the club head will forgive off center strikes (to a certain extent).   @arturo28mx    
    • So I stumbled across on how to change your lineup.   1. Hit Edit Roster. 2. Select the Round, say Round 2. 3. Select the Active player you want to move. This means select and hold your finger on the player (place finger on the player image) and drag the player down to the player you want to replace him with and let go. Drag the player and put him over the player you want. This can be found no where in FAQ. Good Luck.

    • Really curious what the sample size is there. But, yeah, they've been talking about this for a few months, and started awhile ago.
