Jason Day wins at 22 as Jordan Spieth contends at 16, just weeks after Rory McIlroy wins the ninth major and Ryo Ishikawa shoots 58 to win on the Asian Japanese Tour. Just as we predicted, reverting back to grooves reacting like late 80s non-PING's has really swung the advantage to the scrappy vet....err...guys who weren't born until after the Reagan Administration?
It was [Joe] Burbeck’s idea to develop one of these layouts along lines, which were to be severe to a marked degree. It was his ambition to have something which might compare with Pine Valley as a great test and although my continual travels over the country in the PGA work have prevented me from seeing play over Bethpage’s Black since its opening, I am rather inclined to believe from reports from some of the best players that it is showing plenty of teeth.
