The fact that we are playing in 30mph winds is unrealistic. I have played a lot of golf, to include in Hawaii, and have never seen 30mph winds.
Then you've not played links courses. At the likes of St Andrews, Royal St Georges et al, winds can be benign, or they can be blowing a hurricane! I have seen flagsticks bend so far over it's amazing they don't snap. The wind is so strong sometimes that once you put your ball down on the green it gets blown away!
If you play the likes of Bethpage on WGT, the high winds there only just get over 20mph, which is nothng compared to a links course, and probably a fair representation for an inland course. I remember watching the Sony Open in Hawaii in years gone by and the winds there never seemed to be particularly strong.
