It is really interesting to hear his perspective on things. Like being barely off can be worse than way off... especially on a course like Dela

What are you talking about? Dude asked if sfo was on a ball golf course, my question was about tier status, not the respective courses these tournys are played on.

Just finished the hole preview vid. Couple interesting holes and some blah holes as you would expect form a golf course layout. No10 is 1188ft and Cory was talking about people getting eagles, lol...

GGP is an amazing looking course and wish someday I get to play it BUT a top level pro field would destroy that course...

In the pro Tour Talk video above, Paul talked about Maple Hill DGC lacking a driving range area for practicing drives prior to the round, which is true. Throwing distance drivers into a batter's cage sort of thing is not ideal. But, Maple Hill has a fairly good area across the street at Pyramids DGC for practicing upshots and putts. I have seen pros spending time there throwing discs before their Vibram Open rounds. Because of this, it looks to me like pros often throw relatively conservative drives on Maple Hill hole #1, then rely on a good upshot, and probably a long putt, for a possible birdie.

Not unimaginable. (Assuming it's a Par 5.)

Depending in the wind, a few of the guys can manage back-to-back 600' hucks. Rollers could bring that into the conceivable eagle range for even more players.

Heck, we had an 1188' hole set up here last year, and a ~940 rated player eagled it with two air shots. (Hole played through a field of sage brush so rollers were not an option. Did play downhill for the tee shot, tho.)
1188' was actually the exact distance we had measured, weird coincidence.
