Vi havde en helt fantastisk runde. Sikke en bane og sublime rammer omkring golfspillet. Klart den bedste bane jeg nogensinde har spillet. Udfordrerne og alligevel overskuelig bane. Det er (forhåbentlig) ikke sidste gang jeg spiller The Scandinavian.
On Old Course, accuracy is more important than length. At 6,361 metres or close to 7,000 yards it still takes hitting but the focus is on getting the ball in the right positions of the tee in order to be able to feed the ball into the deceptively small greens and set yourself up for an easy par. The course finds its way back to the designer clubhouse with a tricky Par 5 with water to be contended with on every shot.
At tournament length, New Course stretches to 6,481 meters or close to 7,100 yards which allows golfers to 'open the shoulders' on several of the holes. With strategically placed bunkers in good Trent Jones II fashion, don't be fooled in just 'bombing' it out there. Greens are large but undulating so finding the right level is paramount for a two or maybe one putt.
