Jeff - an honest question, from an average golfer to a very good one:With firm and fast, isn't it still target golf, only with different targets? P

PYes but it is much harder to determine how much the ball will roll. Compared to a soft course where it hits the green and plugs
Only watched today. Looks like a nice fun design. Unfortunately just drive, chip and putt for the big boys. They are ripping it up but they do that to most golf courses these days. Not terribly exciting. Might be more interesting with A LOT of wind.
The absence of rough around the greens is very key to me. I went out there Saturday and in 20 minutes saw more variety of Chips and wedge shots than you used to see the whole tournament. Feels like segmented Old Course size greens with run off like TOC in places and Pinehurst. Visually it is more Murfield or Oakmont but it is wide like TOC. It seems like it wouldn't work but it does. Surprisingly the golf fan and social fan both seem to like it. The clubs and buffets were packed and the crowd flow was much easier than other tournaments I have been to.
Congrats to Zac on a respectable finish. For those on this site who bemoan the existence of the PGA Tour I wish you would all take the time to follow a guy like Zac week to week on tour. Despite Zac's efforts this week he did not move the needle on his Fed Ex Cup standings. I am simply astonished at the pressure these guys are under. No matter what you think about how far these guys hit the ball or how they decide to execute a given shot the fact that anyone can dominate this game over a lifetime is one of the greatest athletic and mental feats in sports and or business.
Just spent four days playing one of the Trans-Miss tournaments at Trinity Forest. Anyone want to chat about it?Note: nines have been reversed from the GCA profile. View from the clubhouse patioPar 3 #3, #15 on the right#2/#12 double green#4 green/#5 tee#6 and #14 greens
Great pics. Looking firm and fast. Shame the tour doesn't stop there anymore.
It's too much to ask, Matt, but if you're ever so inclined I think many of us would much enjoy and learn from an 18 hole 'review' of TF entitled: "Perspectives from the Edge -- A Good Player Tackles a C&C design under Tournament Conditions".
