Nothing personal, but Majors are over-stated. There are maybe ten-twelve fields a year where at least 90% of the world's best play on courses that are reasonably tough (but should be tougher in my view). The majors were always named because the best players from around the world played them and (with the exception of the Masters) were open to either amateur (US / British Opens) or club Pro (PGA).
Look up 'Hogan' and 'Western Open' - that used to be a bullet tournament back in the day, with real kudos when you won it.
And FWIW here's my view on the Majors
Augusta is now a fabrication of the course it was meant to be - it's only defence is speed of greens, but even that does not assist - the average winning score for the last 30 odd years has been -9, and in the era of the Pro V1 bomber, only the Alaskan tournament where ZJ won was tough. If Bobby Jones saw the bunkering around the greens on holes such as 1, 2, 7, 14 and 17, he'd blow a gasket - the course was always meant to be a links style bump and run course. The bail out bunker at 15 should go. Should have made the greens smaller and pushed the rough in and made it rough. Oh yeah, I've been there, so before you ask.
British Open - depends on what course it is. St Andrews is no longer a fit and proper course for a major - it averages a winning score of -14 for the last 6 times it's been played there. If you hit a draw, you will never be in too much trouble, and with laser-guidance yardages, the bump and run is being eliminated. Plus if you play it in the occasional hot British summer, 40,000+ hackers rounds take their toll on the fairways.Time to find better courses - Western Gailes, Royal Aberdeen, Carnoustie (the ultimate test of golf in my book), Macarhanish, plus pick 5 courses in Ireland that could host the tournament. Plus Turnberry, St Georges, Lytham..Muirfield gets ate up too easily as well.
US Open - the greatest challenge, but once again, pull the greens in - too many players are using irons and 3-4 woods off the tee and getting home. Played on amazing course - just wish Pine Valley was still available.
PGA - could be just as tough as the Open - put the rough up, tighten the greens.
Anyway, I digress - I like Freddie, he's always been welcome here. His swing is a thing of liquidity and he's a nice individual from all I here. He's won a major and played all over the world, struggled with back injury. The only thing I can fault him on is his taste in women.
