I played 18 while I was on vacation in Florida. I was really shocked at the difference between the course I played at home and the course I played in Florida. The course in Georgia had two water hazards on the entire course and one or two bunkers tops for holes. It also had a lot of topographical changes and tough greens that weren't flat. On the contrary, the Florida course was packed with bunkers and water hazards. However, it was dead flat, both down the fairways and on the greens. My father in law, who plays constantly, told me that this is because course designers in Florida have to compensate for the lack of natural topography by adding in tons of hazards. Incidentally, I shot five under par and had two or three 325+ yard drives. I thought it was pretty good, given this was only my second round, but I expect radical improvement in the future. Seriously, though, I played pretty well. I played with my brother and a good friend. There were a couple of times where I was critical of myself, and my frustration was met with "dude, this is your second round ever. You're doing quite well." That made me feel pretty good - as long as I'm playing well for my experience level I'll be happy (at least for a while). I was making solid contact, especially from the tee, though this was compromised somewhat by the fact that the driver in the set of clubs I rented had a face about the size of a three wood. I also nailed a pretty sick downhill putt from the fringe of the green. Overall, my game is coming along nicely. I'm seeing improvement with each outing, and I'm to the point where I can spot (and start to correct) issues in my swing. They don't cover my state... Now you guys know where I live. Which state? Your location says "Deep South," and it looks to me like the entire Deep South is covered.
