"But the community felt they would much prefer to be in the summer, so we worked with them on all the permutations. We already knew it could work in the time frame and told St. Paul we weren't in position to do exactly what they wanted to do to trigger their commitment. But when 84 Lumber stepped aside, they were the first port of call and everybody got excited."
Of our two great American preferences - the one for placing the green bunkering very close to the putting surfaces, and the other for soggy greens which will hold any kind of pitch, whether struck with backspin or not- I can not say which induced the other or which came first. The close guarding, in many instances, makes a soft green necessary if the hole is to be playable, and easy pitching, on the other hand, makes it necessary to decrease the size of the target in order to supply any test. I quarrel with both ends of this proposition, whichever is to blame. BOBBY JONES
