2 more tangible reasons why people (including me) shoot higher in the World Am. One is the bermuda rough–if you are not used to playing out of 2″ deep bermuda you will certainly lose strokes trying to hit long clubs out of it. Sometimes you just have to hack it out with a wedge and move on. The second was mentioned by Rick Kimbrel about approaches. At my home course if I underclub and land short of the green I typically have a chance to pitch for an up and down par, bogey at worst. In Myrtle there are many greens fronted by water, so those short shots are at least a one shot penalty and probably 2 depending on how far back you have to drop.
