I was watching the British Open last night and I've come to the conclusion that the R&A sets up their major championship a lot differently than the USGA sets up theirs.
What I mean to say is that I'm enjoying watching this championship a lot more than I did the US Open. The leaders are at -6 right now and that's fine with me. For some reason the USGA thinks that they have to make a golf course impossible to play for their championship. The R&A, that's Royal and Ancient for those that don't know, the true keepers of the game, don't care what the final score is in their tournament as much as they care that good golf is being played.
The greens at St. Andrews appear to be fair, the fairways are wide enough and the rough isn't 10 inches deep! The big obstacles at St. Andrews appear to be a bunch of little pot bunkers placed strategically around the course.
Maybe the USGA should take some lessons from the folks that invented the game!
