While I sympathize with Baldwin's point, I also can't wait to see Newport.
If there were more quality public venues available for majors it might be a different story. But ultimately, we want to see the best courses. Don't we?
A golfer may or may not have what is termed the ‘architectonic sense’ very highly developed so far as the courses he plays on are concerned. He may be partially blind to the strategic influences that threaten him and have a stronger inclination to specialize in the technicalities that claim his greater interest. But there may be others who prefer to receive impressions as they come with irrelevant swiftness, who delight more in the spirit than in the precise letter of the game. TOM SIMPSON
