They reckon it will play about 7800 yards, I would be lucky to break 200 around the course I think.

Mouldy wouldn't even make the fairway with his drive on most of the holes. 

Kiwi would get lost in the rough 

that's rough mate

It's approx 1 par 5 longer than the Eastern's first and second 9 from the championship tees. (6567m)

 

When you spread that out over 18 holes it equates to an extra 27m a hole roughly.

I play this course on WGT, it is tough, greens run at 13 on the game, it will end up a putting comp, who can pick the right lines...



Our Jason will bring home the trophy.

The course staff cut the tall rough grasses and get it prepared for the local community who in turn make all the tee signs, seats and other objects for the course

Yeah unfortunately he calls it as he sees it and this puts people off. But its that attitude of FIGJAM that has made him probably the greatest short game player we will see in our lifetime just due to the sheer confidence (warranted) he has in himself!

 

He has been playing solidly enough the last 18 months and been taking an easy run up too this by the looks of it. Hopefully hits his strides for it!
