The @pgatour is playing one of the hardest courses on the 🌍 planet right now.
Let me break it down.
The tips at The Plantation Course (Kapalua) play at 77.2 relative to par. For us amateurs it’s a 144 slope rating (115 being easy and 155 being the most difficult). That’s 4.2 strokes higher than par!
Think about that for a while.
If you are a single digit handicap you would be lucky to break 99. And these pros are shooting under par on the daily! Don’t judge the players that are in + territory.
Then add the wind. Holy hell.
In case you we’re wondering, here are the top five hardest courses.
1) The International 81.7/155
2) Pikewood National 78.9/155
3) Rich Harvest Farms 79.1/155
4) Oak Tree National 79.3/155
5) Kiawah Island Ocean 79.7/153
