Re: Pinehurst #2 RestorationThose changes look great... nasty, but great. I love waste areas, like World Woods in Brooksville. As if Pinehurst isn't hard enough! Roll the greens up a touch faster, and you've got golfers turning into hammer throw competitors with their putters.
Iacas, you've played Delray Municipal, right? How does it stack up to Pinehurst? I haven't played there for a while, but the greens were pretty great I recall. I've got several guys at the course on the west coast here from Pinehurst, including the new pro, and they rave about how the greens are there, so hard to hold. The pro was telling me if you fire at pins at #2, you're looking for double or worse. That's insane. The greens at Magnolia are all raised like that, but not as severe. Heck, Magnolia is 76/141 for the tour pros, that's insane!
Also, what's really cool, is they're doing the mens' and womens' opens in tandem again. Can't wait to see that. Heck, I can't wait till the next major comes to Florida. Sure, we have 6 PGA tour events, but we need majors!
