William, we will be playing golf until the 24th so the weather gods will shine on us. I have spent over 100 days down here during the last 2 weeks of Jan. since 1999, today by far and away was the most extreme weather that I have experienced @ Bandon.Old Mac really plays fair, I think that the south wind, I mean a normal 1-2 club south wind will really make littlestone play tough, I almost lost a ball left of fairway across maintenance path today...The green crew did a great job of course setup, I played back on all downwind and crosswind hole and up one on all into wind holes. they put the tee all the way back on Ocean, that neat little tee next to the cape green (435 yds).The wind was so strong that into the wind holes easily played 150+yds longer, like I said before Driver, 3 metal, then something else usually a punch 4 or 6. Downwind the ball got knocked down pretty quick and the turf wasn't running as it normally does so I felt that I really only gained 15-20 yds downwind. It was a really interesting day, not really a day to appreciate GCA but a day to look within ones self as a golfer. just to brag, the marshal carts were constantly ferrying groups in that were quitting, the 2some we were paired with made it 2 holes. My father and I finished in 4hrs, 5min...Michael
