The Big Easy report: the changes to Augusta

When I first started coming here in the early 1990s I think it’s fair to say that Augusta was the most fun of all the major championship venues. Now it’s probably the toughest. It’s a seriously long and difficult test of golf. I have to confess, though, I like the changes. But then again, being one of the longer hitters, I guess the changes are supposed to play into my hands.

I was talking to Tiger about this when we were paired together on the second day at The Tavistock Cup last week. The way the golf course plays now – you know, if the long hitters get their games together there’s a real chance they could separate themselves from the rest of the field. It’s going to be interesting, for sure. Another thing we were saying is that if the wind blows and the course conditions are dry, anything could win. Honestly, an over-par aggregate could be a winning score. No one’s seen that at Augusta for the best part of 50 years.
