Does anyone know when Nicklaus made these comments? From an unbylined report from South Africa's Pretoria News:
Nicklaus played a social round at Augusta recently and came off the course disgusted with its new length.
"I played the members' tees. I can't play the back tees anymore," he told reporters. "Every tee I stood on I saw 73 to 91 yards before the back tee.
"The members tees at Augusta used to be 18 or 27 yards in front, which was a normal distance. It's so far now it is ridiculous, but every golf course is that way."
