mvmac posted a topic in Golf Courses and ArchitectureSaw this on IG. As we know Augusta spends a lot of money on the course every year, I've even heard that they re-build the greens every year. I actually like the 13th the way it is, players have to work it the corner and there's the possibility of an eagle with a great approach shot. That kind of what the Masters is all about, being able to hit great shots and move up the leaderboard. Yes it was very "accommodating" of Augusta CC
I talked today with our Club Pro at Gulf Harbour CC in New Zealand regarding Kiwi Danny Lee and why he is doing so well on 13+ stimptmeter greens. He told me a few years ago he represented the North Harbour in New Zealand and Danny was representing Rotarua in the final two rounds of a New Zealand Competition. Both he and Danny shot 72 the first day, then our pro shot 74 the next except Danny shot a 63 to win. Danny can putt! Reminds me of Fuzzy Zoeller from SW Florida who was an excellent putter as well. If Danny doesn't get into any trouble his putting should make him a strong contender.
