Conway Farms… “Nothing tricky…”
Our guys have now had the opportunity to walk Conway Farms for two days, including Tuesday’s practice round and Wednesday’s Pro-Am.
Two holes to keep an eye on this week will be #7 and #15. Both are potentially drivable Par 4’s.Risk/reward is always a crowd favorite and our guys believe these will be momentum shifters all week. Take them on and you bring into play anything from Eagle to Double Bogey. With so much money on the line and the chance to play in next week’s FedEx Championship, these two holes should have players outside the Top 30, taking their rips and letting the chips fall where they may.
Thursday’s weather report is calling for 20 MPH winds which always adds an element of difficulty to any course. Without Mother Nature creating difficult conditions, one caddie stated, “The golf course is straightforward. Its the shortest playing 7200 yard course you’re ever going to get. Nothing tricky about it at all if you’re in control of your game.”
This opinion was not shared by everyone as other caddies voiced the opinion that, “the course can lull you to sleep, but if you miss the green on the wrong side you have no chance to get up and down. It can be a very deceptive and hard to see the danger from the fairways. The whole course is right in front of you but the player must always be aware of pin locations.”
Overall, everyone we spoke to agrees the greens here at Conway Farms are going to be fast and the rough will be a major challenge.
