I can't speak for him, but I don't think Yoduh had anything to do with the new placements (hope I'm not full of bs on this one). Personally, I miss the old 12. I've done well on the new hole, but most of those shots felt downright lucky. The new lane is very tight and any leftover forward momentum can lead to some ugly lies. However, it's still a great hole and I'm all for variety since I imagine that they will be rotating the pins. As far as new 15, I must say that the new placement is tougher, but I miss the pure hyzer shot of the original. Also, I can never see myself trying for the lane down the middle on that hole. It's pretty far down the fairway and I don't know many people who can throw a frozen rope that far and also have it finish straight. It pretty much has to be parked in order for the risk to be worth it in my mind. Just like 12 though, the new placement is still a fun hole on an excellent course.
