I could play it ever day for a year and probably never get used to it.Bermuda *is* regular grass around here.
Going from sea level & no roll to even just firmer fairways is awesome. Add elevation? Hahahaha driving distance stats go brrrrr.So I golfed in Marco Island the last couple of days and the change from dry and elevated (1000 ft) to humid and coastal really messed with my mind for a bit on the golf course. I expected the ball to go shorter but I was not expecting the very little roll I got from my normal shots. The fairways were a little moist on these resort courses so I had to recalibrate where the ball position was to insure I had good contact. I didn't light the world on fire but I started to play better in the 2nd round after I spent some time on the range trying not to fat shots and taking a little height off of the driver and 5w shots. I started to see some roll out but not a lot. It would take a couple more rounds to really adapt but I think it was a success.
It also reaffirmed that fact that my AZ handicap shouldn't travel well, this is just for me not all AZ golfers. I play a lot of wide open courses and get a lot of extra distance with rolls. I don't have super heavy rough or that many shots where I have to avoid trees or water. I take advantage of this and really need to start playing for a tighter dispersion.
So is it easier to go from sea level to elevated or vice versa?
Is it easier to go from humid to drier conditions?
If you have never played in serious wind how much does it suck to play in very windy conditions?
Are you someone that needs roll out so you like more of a baked out fairway situation.
I played well in Vegas (MC 21), Bandon (with the lowest cap I ever had), and VA (Budget 23). All team events. Me solo my scores go up. I guess that means I like firm and fast conditions. In general I may over think my traveling cap but my PHX game doesn't really work well on tree lined or water lined courses. LolI don't see huge differences. So far my cap has traveled to Bandon, Florida, North Carolina, England and Michigan.
This most likely. Going from fast greens to slow greens also is incredibly difficult for me.
