this part is spot on, it is the rest i disagree - about those predictions every few years, when we the last time these discussion were had? when was the last time an open course 8 or 9 wedge holes on it with using a driver? when was the last ime you combined a soaked short golf course with several inches in rain the week of the open?
think what you want but the first page of the leader board is going to look like nunbers you would see in the masters...plenty of -3, -4, -5 on Thursday.
