    No -30 under this time.
    Kapolei is a bit easier than Hoakalei but to its defense not 20-under easier.
    Wind made the biggest difference from last year.
    Both have pretty deep bunkers but Ernie really encroached them on some of the fairways. And obviously more water.
    But they really have so many similarities other than deep bunkers. Elevated greens. Paspalum. And usually at least some win.

      Those of us who have seen the ladies play over the years still have one saying: “If you want to see them struggle, give ’em wind!”

        I would say that’s true for any golfer.

        I also think it’s important to look at women’s golf less archaic. Women’s golf has come a long, long way.

        But I have to agree, actually, as i watch both men and women, Players hardly adjust anything like stance for strong wind anymore.

        Imo it’s Because they really don’t get enough strong wind days to have to prepare significantly for it. Shibuno didn’t win but her wide stance, choked up grip, and hyperextended elbows, it explains why she won an Open and why she had a good chance at a fairly windy Hoakalei.
