Fearsome PGA West TPC Stadium Course actually a hacker's equalizer
Know a smug low handicap golfer who’s always rubbing his good shots in your face? The kind of guy who gloats over every $1 hole win, while refusing to give any strokes, even though the competition’s about as evenly matched as a tank versus a paper airplane?
Suggest a round at the PGA West TPC Stadium course and watch the playing field level. Yes, we’re talking the Pete Dye design with the petrifying rep, the one with 151 slope rating from the back tees, the one that the pros whined about being just too difficult.
Crazy for a high handicapper challenge? Try crazy like Joe Namath declaring victory.
The toughness of the Dye is actually your ally. This is a course that brings outstanding, obnoxious golfers down to your level. It’s intimidating enough that it’s going to mess with their heads and their swings. Your swing’s already messed with, as jumbled as Michael Jackson’s mind. You can hit your usual shots and watch in delight as Mr. Golf God’s shots go wild. And suddenly, it’s all coming down to a few putts.
Golfers moan that the PGA West TPC Stadium course penalizes good shots. Guess what, that’s good for you, Routinely Bouncing It Off A Tree man.
