Rees Jones sat in on the Pipe 2 webcast of Mickelson-Ogilvy-Woods and said that "the reason I do so many redos is that I can put myself in the head of the original architects."
It must be nice.
He also cited his dad as the source of the famous line about balls finishing in bunkers like being in a car crash, versus finishing in a water hazard being like a plane crash.
Wasn't that Bobby Jones?
Oh, and they did a nice feature on Rees and briefly showed a photo that was identified as Robert Trent Jones Sr. It was Robert Trent Jones Jr.!***
***When TNT aired the feature, they got a photo of Trent Jones Sr. in!! Nice recovery.
He's still on and the subject of the golf ball came up. David Fay will be glad to know that he refuted Jack's idea of doing something with the ball for tournament play and went into the various areas the USGA has been looking at (driver size, length of shaft, etc...).
Other wisdom: "The game is like baseball. the kids coming up want to hit home runs."
And this: "That's the problem with the game. Every time we make a change to a course the manufacturers are a step ahead of us."
