It's a strange course. I was lucky enough to card a 55, which included a four putt on the 12th hole after going long above the hole and getting stupid with my first putt. It could easily have been a 53 had I played that hole smart.
I also have had rounds where none of my shots stop close and I end up with an endless string of pars. It's really easy to start hot and get to 5 under after 5, which I assume everyone is doing or restarting at that point, and then go on a 3 or 4 hole par streak. I shot 10 under on the front the other day and followed that with pars on 5 of the next 6 holes.
I'm not a huge fan of the unlimited tournaments but WGT makes the rules and we play by them. They get a lot of revenue and interest from this tournament. The unlimited burns balls at a high rate, especially with that tempting restart button.
It will be interesting to see the conditions that they four rounds are set at this year, last year the variety in green speed really got me confused after a great starting round of 55 had me tied for the lead, this year I'm going to check them out when they are posted and do a little practice before diving in.
Keep at it you have the game to get in my friend.
In terms of one of the 52 shooters who doesn't have the best stats in the world. Take a look at his Qualifying round. He had 3 eagles on the front nine, everyone can have a once in a lifetime round and he obviously did. Give people credit for playing a good round. If you don't want to play then don't but this player deserves his due, he did it under the same conditions all of us tried to qualify under.
