Well, that's a boring tournament, when someone has a lead like that it take's all of the excitement out of golf.

All i can say is that Donald Ross probably would have liked the movement of the fairway's and the wire grass area's but i'll bet he would have liked to see more green. If that wasn't such a minimalist operation, i'll bet they would pull hose's.

They tried to get that place looking like a sea-side, European style link's and they succeeded but splashing sand around bunker's look's fake, to me anyway. Maybe do some of that here and there but not 90% of them. And some of those bunker lip's are falling apart, that's going to cause problem's down the road. I'm starting to think they could do better.

But that's why i just maintain the course, and not design it.
