The course is playing long, with very little run after a lot of rain over the last weekend.
It's a tough, but fair, course. There are many ditches in the trees and scrub areas around the course.
One change from last year is that the green surrounds on 1, 5, and 7 have been changed from rough to fairway to create run-off areas.
