After one round of medal play on the best course in the world, Michael Muehr leads with a solid 68 (-2). The only other round under par was fellow Olympian Andrew Biggadike with a fine 69. Both score cards are below. Andrew had a stellar 32 in the back nine to close his round out. Tomorrow the field will be cut to three flights of 16 for match play to commence on Sat morning, with quarterfinals in the pm, Sunday will feature the semi-finals in the morning followed by the finals in front of many spectators that are allowed onto the Pine Valley grounds to witness some good golf and feel the best golf course in the world under their feet.
Often I am asked what makes Pine Valley so great, the answer is easy, everything!! From the stunning visuals to the amazing staff and people you will meet here. The course has every element you want in a challenging golf course. My 75 was disappointing as I made 4 unforced errors from the middle of the fairway for bogeys with three eight iron shots and one sand wedge. I hope to clean that up tomorrow as I need a sub 75 round to have a chance at the championship flight. The course is firm and fast, and with expected good weather should get even faster and firmer as we progress into the weekend.
I took some new photos of the course that I will be posting later, so stay tuned for round 2 results!!
