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?
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.
