I'm so very much looking forward to this opportunity! I'm really going to try and play smart, but without grinding and just enjoying the amazing company...I don't hit the ball far, but hopefully can limit big mistakes and manage whatever game I wake up with... And if that doesn't work, there's always beer!I'm so excited for you guys to play a course (The Champ) that I'm so familiar with. It doesn't get it's reputation for difficulty from it's length. It's difficulty is in how each hole is setup and guarded with water and strategic bunkers. There are so many holes you cannot run the ball up to the green on. Haven't played it in years but the greens were always in great shape and reasonably quick for a public play resort course and stimp was usually around 12.
I think I read somewhere that the Honda Classic (The Champ) is considered by many of the tour players as one of the harder courses they play all year. It's a thinking golfers layout and demands shot making and risk/reward to score well. I never went low on it. I think the best I ever did was 82 from the tips and I actually felt good about that score.
If you appreciate demanding golf hole/course layouts, this is one of those courses. Embrace it! Take it all in... and give it everything you have.
