Wind Conditions

Post by Riddler »

I am sure this has been discussed before but asking again, are the winds blowing in the same direction for every player, playing the same rounds? I ask because there are many times the winds are so strong against you making par is the goal. This is especially true on long par 4's and 5's. Now I just finished round 4 Riviera and hole 17 was a long par 5. I see Tony had a birdie. I had winds against me all 5 shots and they were in the 30+ mph range. How does someone birdie a 600 yard par 5? Tony how did you birdie the hole?

They should be yes, otherwise it would make a mockery of all our tournies if players had different wind settings. :blink:

ssshhh Mark, I manage to get tail winds of exactly the strength I need for every shot... :innocent:
The scores may be unrealistic, or even a joke but heyho, that's what we got.

Play well and enjoy your game everyone! :drinks:

btw, not a game for snowflakes.

Ha, Stozza you azz lol. As my playing partner, you see that crap every week :-) . I just saw this post today and Alan's question... Alan, I remember that hole --- I hit driver, driver, driver and still was 50 or so yards short of the green. Then a simple pitch in~!
