Yeah, what you're missing is the combination of severe slopes, poa annua, and extra agua. If you get it going too quickly over the apex, it takes off. As the commentators have indicated, you sometimes have conflicting vertical and horizontal fall lines on greens, which heightens the number of apices to be summitted.

Well, that doesn't really address the issue. You can throw in all the apices, apexes and poas you want, Mr. Wizard. The result is that the greens are slower than expected -- uniformly -- and the players have failed to adjust.

It is comforting to know that Michelle Wie is not alone with her problem of adjusting to slower greens. One day she is playing in a US Open sectional with greens running at 12 to 12.5 and the next she starts a tournament where they barely hit 10 on the sunny days. Of course she just failed to adjust...
