The length of a golf course doesn't necessarily dictate how difficult it is to score on. Some of these guys hit a long ball but have trouble with their short game.

Ron Mon's latest blog is a testament to the above (Why Luke Donald and Sergio Garcia will tank in majors).

Nicklaus has a point about Augusta. It's not a bad idea to leave certain courses the way they were originally designed.

Well they tried to tinker with it
a few years ago to try to make it
harder for Tiger to win....DIDN'T
WORK!!

Sorry, I tend to agree with Jack about this one....and Stacey. Leave
Augusta National alone.

Jack must have forgotten the recent lengthening going on at his course in Dublin, Ohio. Every year the Memorial tournament gets tougher because of the changes he makes. I'm a huge fan of his but in recent years I have witnessed his crankiness turn people away from the game. Everything from turning down autographs (after a practice round) to just being short with young fans. It's a shame, he could be a great bridge from the old to the new but instead he is an obstacle. Besides, they all play the same course don’t they?
