#711915Photo of the new “globe standard” at Merion, aka the wicker basket.
#28Hugh Wilson, “who is responsible for the two most excellent courses at Merion”, designed 2 new holes at Philmont in 1914. I suppose this is not news ?—#37And I did not remember that Travis had worked with Ross at Pinehurst.How much work did he do there ?
I suppose you could argue that whatever Travis did at Pinehurst was so bad it took Ross 40 years to fix it.
You'd be mistaken to argue that No. 2 as it exists today is in any way a Travis course.
Mike:As long as we're translating influence into design credit, you probably should be giving Madonald a bit more credit for Merion. Sven
I found it interesting that the article on Tredyffrin CC from 10/01/17 noted that Alex Findlay is also designed Plymouth CC. I’d never heard this before.BTW I hear good things about the work being done by Ron Prichard and Tyler Rae over there at Plymouth or 1912 as it’s been renamed.
