If technology is not rolled back or abated and I don't think it will be, the rendering of a site that can produce holes of 365-425 that concern elite players will be a great, great feat.
Is this right, there is only one hole between 240ish and 440ish for the Masters - #3? From the back tees, yes. If so, I never realized this before. What do folks think about this? I think it's mandated by the out of control distances the modern PGA Tour Golfer hits the ball.Would you enjoy the tournament if almost every hole were driven or a drive and a wedge ?Remind me, whats did Bubba hit into # 13 after his drive ?Does it play into the hands of Bubba style smashmouth golf? That was the overwhelming sentiment I came away with.Do folks think the greens and hills offer the perfect opportunity for a few more holes in the low to late 300s? Not for these guys.And, they can do that on a number of holes by simply moving the tees up toward the Member Tees.1 3653 3405 4007 3309 39511 40014 38017 37018 385 I did notice that Bubba hit it so far on #3 that he got himself out of position and didn't really know what to do. I think he knew what to do, I just don't think he hit his drive where he wanted toThe resulting shot reflected his indecision.I'm not sure that I would draw that conclusion.It could have been a shot that even the East German judge would have given it a 9 on difficulty. 11 holes between 440ish and 530ish yards?I count 9 par 4's between 440 and 530. Does this strike anyone as bizarre, even on a very hilly site?Not at all.These are the best golfers in the world, who hit the ball a mile.Remind me, what did Bubba hit into # 13 ?
