Thank you Scott, David and Matthew. That information is very helpful. I am very eager to do an Australia trip in the near future (probably RME RMW x 2, KH, BD, LF and perhaps NSW). Of course, given the distance (and thus the fact that it is a trip that I am not likely to repeat for several years at least) I am eager to get my timing right as far as conditioning is concerned. I do not care if the course looks like August, but I would love for it to play firm and for the fabled putting surfaces at RM and KH to play fast and true (a friend of mine tells me that when those greens are in top form they are the best in the world). I have high hopes that after the President's Cup RM will be in top nick for some time.
