Course Changes Verdict Watch, Vol. 2

Next to an L.A. Times jump headline saying "Length Wasn't a Factor," was this Ben Crenshaw quote:

"The course gets longer and longer, but I had a great time," he said. "I had a ball."

Crenshaw said the 7,445-yard Augusta National course played even longer because of Saturday's rain.

"It's a huge, huge, huge advantage to hit it so far," he said. "Length is a major, major, major factor."
