Did you ever notice especially the first few rounds of a new course . Or a course that has always been there . But you never played it before ? It seems like all your mapping goes out the window . It isn't until a half a dozen or a dozen rounds that you begin to get really dialed in .
I would tend to disagree with that statement, based solely on my own (limited) experience. I have not been playing this game long enough to have been here when most of the courses were new, however I was here when Torrey and PGA National came out.
I found that Torrey didn't have too many quirks, and it didn't take me a bunch of rounds to get dialed into the course. And PGA? I killed that course the very first time I played it - no need to get dialed in. In fact, the day that PGA came out, I played 9 holes and shot 26 for my first round on that course, then followed that with a 57 for the full 18 holes (both in tier conditions). There was no magic algorithms that needed to get me dialed in to the course. The course played true and accurate, and all my mapping worked perfectly.
It has more to do with how accurately the course has been modelled. I find that PGA is modelled quite accurately, and therefore it played well "out of the box". Torrey is similar, though there are a few quirks (like getting the distance right for the tee shot on #3) - that is more a problem with inaccurate modelling than some magic force getting anyone dialed in to the course.
Sure, lots of courses/green have quirks and inconsistencies with the modelling, and players adapt to them, but that is the player doing that, not the game (and the player may not even be conscious of it).
There are, of course, likely many situations where WGT has (behind the scenes) tweaked the modelling of new courses, based on feedback. When that happens, no one is getting dialed in to the course. The course is getting adjusted to play better.
