Bittersweet tournament because it feels like the first big one of the year - that used to be Pebble (whatever name it went by.)

Taylor Made Sim2  10.5 (Opened 1 click) Ventus Blue 5  R flex

Ping G410 5-9 wood  Alta 65 R flex

Wilson D7 forged 6-GW -  Mamiya recoil 460 R flex

Edison Wedges 54 and 59 KBS Tour Graphite 80's

EVNRoll ER 5

Titleist Pro VIx optic yellow with revkev stamped on them

Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.

Tiger is a non-topic since he isn't eligible for the tournament anyway.

Interested to see if the Gil Hanse re-design plays better in its 2nd year. Looked like he messed up that course real good last year. Interesting when thinking of the Olympic venue.

He may not be playing in the tournament, but I'm pretty sure we'll hear a lot about him...

William,

I am not "liking" this because I want to hear a lot about him!  ;)

 

I am just agreeing with you.  The GC guys can't say anything about other players without coming up with some comparison to Tiger.  It gets a little old.  They can't help themselves, and maybe they mean it as a compliment to the other players to be compared to Tiger.  But I think they really do it for ratings.

I don't know that the course was messed up too much.  It used to be brutal (hence the term blue monster) and equipment had removed lots of its teeth.  I think the intent was to put the teeth back in and the greens just need to mature a bit.  I played the old course with old equipment (persimmon driver) from the tips and it was a bear.  It seemed to be a bear again last year.  I think they'll score a little better this year because they'll know the course and the greens will hold a bit more.

 

In Florida it's always all about the weather anyway.  You have to build our courses with some space because of the swirling winds this time of year.  Our better courses will have trouble on both sides because of those winds - when they blow and swirl just about any course gets tough because it's very hard to figure out where to miss.  When the winds are down even our tougher courses are cake because its so flat and generally the conditions are soft.  You simply hit the ball from point A to point B and it stays there.  That is if you hit the ball straight.
