However the arrival this year of faster (we are told 12 on the stimp) Champion Bermuda greens which were laid only 3 months ago could well see scoring increase slightly and will certainly favour players who are Bermuda friendly. Tranquil conditions are forecast so I'm still expecting resort course type scoring with potentially -15/265 to -17/267 getting the job done.
copied the above from the net, how much are you guys reading into this as far as course form goes? is this green setup much different form the old?

From what I have found out, the greens will be more undulated and faster thus giving a bigger edge to the better putters. It will also make it a bit harder to hit as many greens in regulation so scrambling will be a little more important this year compared to earlier.
