I shot a decent score, ultimately I expect it to be 2/3 shots off the winning score.  The courses were, as expected, excellent. Very enjoyable holes with plenty of variety. Some of the holes are truly stunning.  Enjoy all

Kipahulu Reserve: -3
The Hermitage: -2
Humboldt Bay Golf Club - Eureka California: E
Glen Abbey GC by BoomBoom: -2
Puget Sound Golf Club: -2
Turnberry New Ailsa: -1

Kipahulu Reserve: -3.  Beauty, but what's with the fences everywhere?
The Hermitage: -1  Them trees make it tough.
Humboldt Bay Golf Club - Eureka California: -1  Classic Canuck style
Glen Abbey GC by BoomBoom: -4  Great RCR!
Puget Sound Golf Club: -1  Fun tee shots.  A whale in the sound?
Turnberry New Ailsa: -3  Greens are huge.  Needs more soften brush
Total: -13

Was surprised you managed just -2 with two -3s... Then realised it adds up to -8!!! Did you get a score or the total wrong?

Huge greens in real life coruler2 avrage about 40 yd except for par 3's front to back but easy to find the pin after your first try, many course greens on TGC are too small like postage stamps so theres no room for gentle undulations  to work the ball to hole side Scottish greens are big.

Turnberry RCR greens are humongous compared to real course. Don't know how much you toned them down after last discussion, but they were more than double size...

And greens in general for fictional courses are too large. Check out some accurate RCRs and see how large greens normally are.

Just a guess, but he may have shot +3 on hermitage instead of -3
