After 3 days of watching the best players in the world at the Steady Ed Memorial Masters Cup, I can tell you with confidence that DeLaveaga is truly one of the most challenging and brutal courses in the world, both mentally and physically. At the same time, it’s also one of the most awe-inspiring. Everything about DeLa  is so close to aesthetically perfect that it could and should be considered a work of art. It’s beauty is paired perfectly with its difficulty, and the combination brings out the best in those lucky enough to get to play it.

Day 2 at The Steady Ed Memorial Masters Cup was yet another gorgeous day with perfect weather. When the first cards of the day were teeing off it was brisk and foggy but by 9AM everything was back to the normal Nor Cal climate. The wind was again a non-factor today and one would expect scores to improve compared to round 1. Despite all odds, for the most part, they didn’t.
