Jay Coffin on USGA Executive Director Mike Davis' Morning Drive appearance where he talked about bouncing the trophy ceremony heckler and the 16th hole setup Sunday.
“We think one of the elements of the test for a national championship is the ability to react at the moment to a golf course setup,” Davis said when he joined “Morning Drive” on Tuesday. “While we don’t want inconsistencies with green firmness or green speeds we like the idea of mixing up teeing grounds because it really does make them think.
“In the case of Sunday it certainly made them think at a very important time in the championship. In some players case it made a difference.”
