    New course. Would be a great week for a puddincheeks style course breakdown.

    I’ve played it three times, awesome course, sooooo much better than the Las Colinas TPC, which is complete garbage. Will write up a full report this week, but suffice to say that the wind will be the biggest factor in scoring (if there is any, it’s been blowing like hell all spring here). Birdies are very available in reasonably calm conditions, the course is a monster in 20 mph winds.

    Good articles about the course.

    Par 71 for this event although its normally a par 72 so you will see scorecards showing that.

    Apparently there is no maintained rough but the fairways are extremely wide. However it seems to be extremely important to position yourself in the right spots to approach the greens.

    Has very large greens so GIR may be prety pointless as you may technically hit the green but have a ridiculous putt.

    Greens are bermuda and run 10.5 on the stimp.

    Got comparisons to Pinehurst #2 which hosted the us open in 2014 however given the field only a few guys in the field this week played.

    Taking a look at Justin Thomas wins. 3 of his last 4 were on the most difficult courses of the season(terms of average strokes from par). 2017 pga championship was toughest course of the year, Honda Classic and CJ Cup are (so far) #1 and #2 of 2018 respectively.

    #3 and #11 are a double green, 35,000 sq feet, tour avg is around 6,000.

    10.5 is slow but greens have many slopes and undulations which will make them play faster

    Greens are built up and have sharp drop offs

    Fairways are a Zyoisa blend that nobody has played on as it was developed at Texas A&M specifically for this course and Texas golf courses

    Course will play fast and be brown, expect plenty of roll off tee and approach shots that bounce or roll onto greens. Course is not watered often.

    No water, 88 bunkers, very few trees

    Fairways will have plenty of undulations and there are several mounds around the greens

    Course was built on a landfill
