Some play­ers-turned-de­sign­ers tend to cre­ate cour­ses that favour their own strengths as play­ers, even if they are not aware they are do­ing so. Are there as­pects of your de­signs that re­flect your style of play?

Robb Report Singapore - - Travel & Leisure -

an­gle of ap­proach is crit­i­cal if you want to score. While there are def­i­nite spots you don’t want to be, gen­er­ally you can al­ways find your ball and have a chance to re­cover. What I find so ap­peal­ing at the Old Course are the same prin­ci­ples that we try to in­cor­po­rate into our de­sign ef­forts.

I work hard in all of my de­signs to in­cor­po­rate a lot of va­ri­ety. I don’t think play­ers will see my cour­ses as favour­ing a draw or a fade or a low or high ball. I do think play­ers with cre­ativ­ity and a will­ing­ness to hit dif­fer­ent types of shots will be re­warded on my cour­ses. Maybe that re­lates to how I play golf.
