NOBODY has said it wasn't fair. I really enjoyed the hole. It was just kind of a bummer that there wasn't anything in place to keep people from shooting themselvs in the foot over and over. It wasn't enjoyable to watch and everytime you heard talk around the course of the highest score on the hole rising from 11, to 15, to 19(2X) and finally 22 it went from kind of funny to kind of depressing. It overshadowed the standard talk of who is having great rounds and fighting for the lead. Again, it WAS FAIR, it just lessened the experience a bit for some of us, including those of us that got 2's and 3's on the thing. A lot of the blame for that lies on the folks refused to laid up.
As far as the pro's doing well on it, that's great! I think most of Advanced did quite well on it during the first round, we just got stuck with a mean wind coming off the water that kind of made landing the shot more difficult. Also, we're not as good as you guys, shhhh don't tell anyone.......
