Recently profiled in Links and pretty much declared the best short par-4 in golf by, among others, architect Tom Doak, what better license for the Tom Fazio gang to start changing the hole!
From Thomas Bonk in today's L.A. Times:
Phil Mickelson has played the Nissan Open only seven times, but he knows the strategy at the 315-yard 10th. He hit his drive at the par four 307 yards, into the back bunker, but he got up and down for a birdie. Mickelson said he's always going to try to drive the green, and over the green isn't bad.
Told that an alteration is in store for the back of the 10th green, where a dirt road may be restored to the barranca that used to be in that location, Mickelson had a quick reply.
"Well, it looks like this one won't be back on the rotation," said Mickelson, who shot a 66.
He said he was joking.
If anyone can spot this barranca that needs to be "restored" in the old photo above, please point it out!
