I just started this tour, here is a copy/paste from the Steam forums.

I do not normally play a tour that does restrictions on the wind but I decided to give this one a go for a personal reason.
I am not going to check the flag to see which way/how hard the wind is blowing as I find this an ideal way to work on my short game by playing this tour.

I am sure my approach shots will end up in all manner of places around the green so I can improve my short game.

It actually works a treat as I played the first round and I have never been in so many bunkers, still managed to scrape round in -2, not bad when you consider I don't think I hit a green with an approach shot on the first 5 holes. :p

I know people have doubts with the course settings but if you play it like me it will help to improve your overall game.

My new approach to 'not try to do anything stupid and play what the course gives me' is working out great.

I need lessons on this mentality.  I always think it but I never follow through!

Same here.  Just recently attempting this. 

Something about not exactly knowing the wind is making me choose to be more safe and it's resulting in lower scores.

Man I played this tour drunk last night, which is good.  Cause if I was sober I would have bailed after the 1dt round, was BRUTAL!

If you can not hit 100% dont even try lol.  I did make it to the 3rd course then left at 7 due to inability to comprehend what was going on to be fair, but they are some well thought out but absolutely brutal courses.

I think Im over par on each of te rounds, though sitting about 9th

Standings after the British Open.  I've got a comfortable lead from the players through 6 rounds.  Good thing, because I played a poor round#1 at the PGA.  Waiting to play round2 and finish up in a few days.

Does this tour only have the wind off or does it have the green grid off too?

Just the wind - everything else is on.

Thanks, guess I'll jump in then. I can't even think about doing no-grid since i'm playing in low res.
