The Nationwide Tour is in town for their yearly stop. That’s as close to the PGA Tour as we get around here with regards to professional golf.
They’re playing at a course called Willow Creek Country Club. I played Willow Creek for the first time about three weeks ago. What a nice course! I’m a 1.7 (yes it has gone up this season) handicap and I doubt I broke 80 my first 18 holes there (I played 27). There are many holes where course knowledge would have saved me a stroke or two though.
That being said I can see a huge difference between a 1.7 handicap and Nationwide Tour players. To be exact the difference is 17, strokes. Two players shot 63’s in their first rounds. I have free tickets so I’d like to go see the next Zach Johnson or Bubba Watson play but I’m busy so I doubt I’ll get up there.
