Sven/Phil/Ben:Two things in the Tillie letter:"new green site at the fourteenth" the "only week hole" Wow. this is one of the tough holes today and has one of the best greens on the course. Did Tillinghast's new green site get carried through or did he just make an observation and the green we see today was there from the beginning?also the letter refers to fairway irrigation "applied with intelligence" doesn't say single row double row, but it certainly implies full irrigation prior to the '37 Open.Tony
Dan:My guess is that what we see in the 1948 aerial is the result of preparations for RTJ's work (which would take place shortly thereafter). Many of the Ross bunkers look like they've been filled in and/or grassed over.
