I just can't see the USGA setting it up so that ball's are landing in the previous week's landing area's. But they do want the men and the women to use roughly the same iron's for their second shot. Personally, i think the golf course will be fine.
Did you know that Pinehurst is going to do away with all their bentgrass green's and go to ultra-dwarf bermuda? Now if Augusta would do that, that would change the way a lot of thing's are done, but that's probably wishful thinking.
