Great Course. Great Greens. Set Up?
I don't even mind the bunkering for the professionals, it's just what the pro game has evolved into. It is the rough as long, thick and homogeneous as it is just off very severe, very firm very fast greens that I mind. The bunching of the scores shows this to be true, when a major has so many players bunched if is because the set-up is wrong.
It is not a good idea to homogenize the rough such that the rub of the green is eliminated for all practical purposes. Golf was not meant to be fair, see what happens?
Some of these photos are tweaked a bit unnaturally to show the contours of greens and to enhance their visibility as much as is practical.
