Don't take the Austin guys lightly..specifically Anthony Damon and Jeremy Mount. Neither are afraid of any of the touring crowd. They both know the course better than anyone and Mount has honestly been the best overall central texas golfer this year. Pretty much top 3-5 in every event. Anthony Damon has a canon and has a reputation as a big time clutch putter. I am picking a lot of Texas guys(like Matt Hall) to advance decently far. Being comfortable on that course is pretty huge. The ropes on a few holes are nasty. Mike Olse did a sick job with the redesign, lots of risk/reward situations occur after the tee shot. Only like 4 easy deuce/die holes. Much better than what I thought was possible out at Twin Parks. It is a huge course. The 18 holes covers both of the old courses, and spans every single corner of the property. This course will wear people out that are not used to playing the central texas hills. And well, the wind is always swirling or gusting in the 20+ range out there.
I was really unsure about how well match play would work out there, but after playing the course a couple times I am really impressed with what was done. I hope the layout is permanent because I really enjoyed it. There are not a lot of technical holes, pretty much gotta air it out and hit your landing zones.
and why are you doubting Nikko? he won it last year. I think he knows what to do
