This Best Of VUSO 2022 course is the most difficult VUSO course I have seen.
Last year at Torrey Pines, the cut line (top 156 plus ties) was 56, and it was the highest cut line I had seen since joining WGT. There were 232 players that made the cut. One of the reasons was that there were no guaranteed eagle attempts in high winds at Torrey Pines. There were only a couple holes with possible eagles, and they needed wind assistance. With one exception (a 51), 53 was the best score last year.
This year there are two reachable par 4 holes, and all the par 5s can be reached with a little luck with the wind. It will not surprise me to see a couple scores around 49. However, the rest of the course is very difficult, and the 2nd reachable par 4 is a total risk/reward type hole. Additionally, with the wrong winds, none of the par 5s are reachable. I think this year the cut will be higher than last year, "57" or possibly "58"
Perhaps this is wishful thinking. 😂🤣 I just shot 58 with my first attempt, and although I could have possibly shot a lower score, I actually played really well. I thought I had a great round. Those are just some brutal tough holes. There was even one par 4 I was in to the wind and I couldn't reach the green in two.
Anyway... for those who play, have with it!
