Hey Cerino! You did chip in (while I was typing!).
P.S.#2. Courses like Oakmont and Olympic were designed and built some time ago. They play perfectly into the uneven lie game. Quite a few holes will have a left pin position when the ground produces a draw. Same with right side pins when the ground produces a fade. After a while you'll start searching for the lie you want when hitting your tee shot. The only way to produce great scoring is to learn the geography of the fairways. Watch closely how your tee shots finish rolling out. Lots of folks have complained that the uneven lies shouldn't have been introduced until a draw or fade option was already available. From my observations we really don't need it. Playing the courses as they were designed will produce the draws and fades it takes to hit close to the pins. Each course has a few opposite holes that don't match draw/fade fairway lies to the pin position. That's a hole you have to accept par and move on. These are Open Championship Courses after all.
I couldn't agree more with these thoughts! One of the reasons Unevens is so great is that it allows you to appreciate the architecture of these great courses. And that it makes every shot one you need to think about: planning your route to the green from the tee is something the pros have to do: it's good to have that forced on us here too, rather than just blasting 'the big dog' off down the fairway to have it roll and bump along through hill and dale, and end up in a perfectly flat, artificial lie.
On the subject of draw/fade, I've found that deliberately missing the ding left or right (by a little) against the slope adds a significant degree of control to the shot. In particular, I would aim to do this any time the wind and the slope were likely to guide the shot the same way. (If you miss the ding with the slope/wind in these circumstances, you'll see your shot go way off)
I looked at the leaderboard of the Tour Legend Uneven Invitational yesterday and noticed that the majority of the players were shooting only 3-5 strokes worse than their average. That may have something to do with BPB being a fairly easy Unevens course, but I think it also indicates that once you take the plunge and get a handle on this feature, it's not that hard. I don't think it's going to radically alter people's scoring, but it could help bring scores a little bit closer to reality.
