Robert Allenby obviously heard all of the raves, and simply wanted to offer a different take on Canadian Open host Shaughnessy.
Just watching on television, it's hard to understand what the fuss is all about. It's tight. The course has way too many trees, particularly of the Christmas tree green committee special type that have no place on a golf course (talk about fluky and obnoxious as Sir Harry Colt would say). The course has lots of matted rough and silly narrow fairways.
There were a couple of neat looking green contours, but the greens looked like they've shrunk a bit over the years, making the contours and modern speeds a goofy looking mix. Oh, and the bunkering is definitely forgettable.
Maybe ESPN's Tom Meeks will bring the Open alive with some crisp weekend commentary.
