Jack Nicklaus took one look at the changes (adding length) to Augusta, and he didn’t necessarily like what he saw.

“I know what Augusta is trying to do,” Nicklaus said. “Whether they’ve gone overboard, I’m not sure, but they’ve eliminated a lot of guys. Could Tiger (Woods) do that? Or Ernie Els? Or Vijay (Singh)? Yes. Could Mike Weir or Jose Maria (Olazabal), one of those guys of moderate length, could they do that? Probably not. That’s the change at Augusta I have a hard time with.”

Mike Weir responded, when he heard of the comment: “I know I can still do it. But does it (the longer course) make it harder? Yeah, no question.”
