Not much has changed since Golf World published its poll/ranking of PGA Tour courses by players. They just love their "traditional" courses like Colonial and Harbour Town and Innisbrook, and have less affinity than you'd think for layouts that make them think like Augusta National and Doral. But mostly, they like the designs that fit their eye, not so much the ones they can separate their all important "I" from.
Rex Hoggard surveyed players for GolfChannel.com in the wake of all their Doral moaning. Making their complaining all the more troubling is how few book stops at their favorites.
Despite an impressive bump in field quality for this year’s event – five of the top 10 players in the Official World Golf Ranking are playing the Valspar Championship – the event traditionally struggles to attract top players. Still, it was included on every player’s “dream” list.
