Agree. Their 62's and 63's will become 65's and 66's due to bumpy and slow greens. That would irk them, I bet.

Most players don't have the "human backboard" effect. There aren't huge galleries following every group. Same thing on the Web.com tour and those guys still go very low.

They're pros because because they pure it, they'd shoot great scores playing any public course.

 

I'm sure a few pros played course you're describing when they were growing up. Fred Couples grew up playing public golf, heck so did Tiger. 

 

Also in the Open Championship lies are more "scruffy", can be more variable and they still shoot under par.

They still tell Hale Irwin stories at the courses around Boulder CO. One place he is said to have a played frequently is a short, easy, very old park style course.

Because they're acting and playing to the camera for ratings. Proof that golf is staged like pro wrestling. I knew it. b2_tongue.gif
