Golf Australia Express : GA Express 262
T HERE are few things worse than hearing very good golfers speaking before PGA Tour events and all but conceding they have no chance of winning, purely because they can’t smack the pill 350 metres off the tee. Equipment advances have combined with modern player physiques to turn courses that would once have been considered long and difficult into run of the mill encounters for most of the best players. Brooks Koepka won the US Open with a final score of 16-under, for heaven’s sake! It’s clearly time for a rethink on course design, so we don’t have 12 to 14 holes of bombing a driver followed up by a wedge, at almost every event. Give us more tournaments where players have to truly think their way around, with the balance tipped back in Mother Nature’s favour, and we’d watch it every day of the week. COURSE DESIGN IS AT A CRITICAL JUNCTURE
