The Biggest Lingering Question...

Watching TGC's mostly excellent pre-game coverage (highlighted by Dave Pelz and aerial comparisons between 1997 and 2006), the talk about the super high rough right off of Nos. 5, 6 and 11 fairways reminded me of the most obvious question not asked of USGA officials Wednesday: how come you are not offering tiered rough on these three holes?

You tell us in your press conference how you are working dilligently to make sure conditions are consistent from day to day.

We learn from Brad Klein that you are working hard to make green speeds consistent.

Yet the tiering is mysteriously inconsistent for the three most birdieable holes?
