Firestone's Bowling Alleys

I forgot to point out this interesting quote from Tiger's NEC early week press conference.

Q. You say this is one of the best golf courses. Tell us why.

TIGER WOODS: It's straightforward. There's no hidden agendas. There's no elephant burial grounds like we play nowadays where it's target golf and the fairway angles so that it ends at a certain distance and that's it. Every hole is like a bowling alley and you've got to somehow fit a ball down there.
Never heard "bowling alley" used to describe a course in a positive way!
