What needs to be taken into account more than anything else is that the course was specifically designed to be the home of the Australian Open in the 80's, when the BEST players of that era were attending every year. Imagine designing a course in Sydney at the moment for the same purpose?? Im sure a course developed with the main intention to challenge Woods, Mickleson etc would also be critised in 2040???!CheersDustin
Dave,It was the 70s - but the fields were outstanding and miles better than the Masters last year.Off the top of my head in 1977 they had:Nicklaus, Palmer, Crenshaw, Pate, Leitzke, January, Barber (Miller) McGee, Bean- and I am sure I have left a few out.
