GSfMO#324 Tripp Davis returns for part 2 of our conversation about how an understanding of golf course design can enhance your game and increase your golf IQ. Tripp makes some very interesting comments about the trend of lengthening golf courses that include, “ In certain respects, it’s really become more about power. The game is about scoring. It’s not about how you hit the ball, it’s about how quickly you get the ball into the hole.." and “..it doesn’t makes sense...if you want to challenge the long hitting players, making the course longer does not necessarily challenge them, it plays into their hands...”

GSfMO#323 Golf Course Architect Tripp Davis has designed courses all over the world with respect for the game's history and traditions. Two of his recent US designs are Old American and The Tribute, both in The Colony, Texas. We talk about what makes these courses unique, the current state of golf course architecture around the world, and how the success of the PGA Tour has affected the demands on new course construction.

Part 2 is a Members Only episode. Tripp returns and goes into depth on how golfers can improve their games by understanding the various course design elements and how designers use these features to create fear and distractions.
